Waiting On Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine! Each week, bloggers spotlight what upcoming release they're eager for.
Title: Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Released: January 3rd 2012
Summary from Goodreads:
"Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future." 
Why I want to read this: 
The idea of androids is so cool, not to mention unheard of! I love the idea of the protagonist being a cyborg and falling in love with a human. Although the romance isn't new to YA, the story is. I love it when authors write about NEW things, not recycling old plot line in masked form. I feel that I will love Cinder and is one of the main reasons why I am looking forward to the New Year!
