We have fairly different tastes in books. She's totally prepared for the creepy, scary, and the attention-grabbing. I can only handle that in small doses before I have to sleep with the light on and a Disney movie playing on a TV. It's not pretty.
There are some books that we do have in common. Harry Potter, Howl's Moving Castle, The Hunger Games...these are all books with strong characters and adventure. That's why I thought that she would like Cinder. It's got kick-ass female characters (good and evil), and a romance that doesn't overpower the story. My sister is also someone that needs to be grabbed within the first 25 pages to really get through and enjoy a book. I knew that this one was perfect for that. When I read it, I couldn't set it down!
I imagine that she'll be picking up Scarlet soon, too. Although, I'm going to let her buy that one on her own. Her review will be guest-posted this week, so look forward to a new voice on the blog :)
