Blog Tour: Cinder by Marissa Meyer + Giveaway

Cinder Paperback BlogTourLogo

Welcome to our stop on the Cinder by Marissa Meyer paperback blog tour! During this week long tour, you can find out more about characters from both Cinder and the upcoming sequel Scarlet, which comes out February 5th. Guys, you don’t have to wait much longer!  And speaking of Scarlet, you can learn more about her as she happens to be our character for the tour. Both Adrienne and I loved her sweet and sassy personality. So check out her bio and enter for a chance to win the new paperback edition of Cinder!




Scarlet Benoit inherited a lot from the grandmother who raised her: the stubbornness of a mule, the temper of a firecracker, and the staunch determination to think for herself, even when it comes to the worldwide prejudices surrounding the Lunars.

So when Scarlet’s grandmother goes missing from their small family farm, Scarlet refuses to listen to the local police or townspeople who are sure the kooky old woman simply wandered off into the sunset. Help comes from the most unlikely places, though—first in the ravings of her own drunkard father, and then from Wolf, a city transplant turned street fighter. He may be handsome and, at times, painfully awkward, but Scarlet suspects he’s the last person she should trust. The challenge, though, will be convincing her heart of the same thing.


Thanks to our buds at Macmillan, we have a giveaway of the paperback version of Cinder! This is a book both Kat and I heavily endorse. So if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, this must be a sign!

  1. heykelley

    So, I’ve read Cinder and I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Scarlet. I’m pretty much a Marissa Meyer fangirl. I’m super psyched about the book signing she’s doing in my city and OMG it just occurred to me that not only can I get a hardcover of Scarlet signed, but I could also get a Cinder paperback and get THAT signed!!!
    That is truly a sign of my love for this series: the notion that I would have a paperback AND a hardcover of the same book (especially when my shelf space is so limited)!

  2. cynicalsapphire

    That is not how I pictured Scarlet. Well, mostly just her face. And I thought she would be more ginger, but whatevs. WEIRD COMMENT IS WEIRD.

  3. booksandwine

    I agree with Christina, that’s not how I picture Scarlet’s face at all, and I thought her hair would be a little more red as well, like I guess I just kind of picture Emma Stone, but yayyyy Scarlet!

  4. ellieM

    Loved Cinder! I don’t want just Scarlet, I want them ALL!
    I agree with the others, I don’t think the model looks like how I imagined Scarlet. Maybe becuase on Marissa’s pinterest, she has pictures of what she thinks she should look like, and it influenced me.

  5. Amanda

    Cinder was one of the first books I read last year, and I loved it! So refreshing and awesome. I love how each book will follow a different character, but still be interlinked, which is a part of why I’m so excited to read Scarlet! 🙂

  6. SnugglyOranges

    Just read Cinder and it really was great! I’m curious about Scarlet – is the focus more on Scarlet or is it like a 50/50 split between her and Cinder?

  7. sherry fundin

    I loved Cinder. I had borrowed it from my sister who won it on a blog. Awesome book and I would love to read anything Marissa puts out. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  8. backporchreader

    I haven’t read Cinder yet, but I’ve been meaning to for so long now. I just haven’t gotten to it yet. I’m sure I eventually will read it and love it, thus being super excited for Scarlett!

  28. curlysueshi

    Okay I give. I’ve heard so many amazing things about both of Marissa Meyer’s books by now that I just look like an idiot for not listening at this point. So this is my white flag- I’ll be reading Cinder and probably Scarlet too. You win blogosphere. This time…

  29. GiaochauNguyen

    Read the first 5 chapters already and I really need the next chapter. Can’t wait to see how Cinder gets out of jail.

    Can’t wait to read this–I still have yet to read Cinder, but I have heard so many amazing things about it that it’s up at the top of my TBR list 🙂

  31. yoursinfallibly

    Cinder was one of my favorite books last year, and I am SO psyched for Scarlet. Can’t wait to see what happens to Cinder and Kai next, and I’m dying to meet Scarlet!

  32. Rizka

    Cinder was definitely one of my favorite books of last year. I really can’t wait for Scarlet! I love Meyer’s writing style 🙂

    I haven’t read Cinder, but I really, really want to. It looks so good and it sounds like it be a thrilling and exciting read. Cyborgs+ Cinderella= OMG! That sounds awesome!

  38. Kara_M

    Not entering the contest, but I just wanted to stop by and say I am reading Scarlet right now, and it is fabulous. I’m even enjoying it more than Cinder. I read Cinder last year, and while I liked it, it wasn’t a favorite. I can see Scarlet being easily being a favorite at this point and I am only halfway through.

  39. Angela Cynthia Wang

    I haven’t read Cinder yet, cuz I’m waiting for SCARLET. I hate waiting for amazing books, so I’ve decided to read both at once.

I hear that Cinder DOES make an appearance in the book, which eases the worries I had once I heard book 2 introduced a new set of characters – phew!
