  1. I love Cinder. It's one of my favorites! I also love the whole series, though I still haven't gotten through Winter. I think it's just because I'm so sad for it to all be over. Happy reading!

  2. I think it's awesome that bloggers were quoted in Cait's book. That must be so wild to see your name in there. Congratulations!
