Why I'm Waiting...
Ever since I watched the new live-action Cinderella movie, I've been having mini, happy, squealing freakouts every time a person says the word Cinderella. I've always loved Cinderella, but that movie totally pumped up my excitement. Mechanica is a retelling of Cinderella, and not only that, but a steampunk retelling. In fact, the synopsis kind of reminds me of Cinder, though at the same time it seems so much simpler. But sometimes simple is good. The book only comes out in August, so I'm trying to resist reading the ARC, but I don't know how long that's going to last. I am so ridiculously ecstatic for this book to come out, and I can't wait to see what Mechanica's not fairy tale happy ending is.
