Giveaway: Audiobook of Marissa Meyer's Cinder

I reviewed Cinder by Marissa Meyer recently and thought it was a really creative re-telling of Cinderella. Today, I've got an audiobook copy of it up for grabs thanks to Esther from Macmillan Audio! 

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.

In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.

Here's a sample clip from the audiobook!

    And since I'm not much of a sci-fi girl, I'd rather listen to the story and try to read it and fail. LOL

    I'm so nervous. Will I like it?

    Thanks for the chance.

  6. I've read it and loved it as an ebook, but I'd love to have the audio to put in my library. I think the students will love this one!

  7. I've never read it and it looks very interesting. It would also make a great re-gift, too. :)

  8. I've wanted to read this one for a long time! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  9. I'm really been into audiobooks lately! They are so fantastic for car rides!

    The reason I'm interested in Cinder is (1) It is a re-imagining of Cinderella one of my fav fairytales, (2) it has Cinderella depicted as a CYBORG! (3) there is some crazy plague going around, that has no cure-instant intrigue, (4) There is some sort of "Moon Race" waiting to take over the world!

    How can I not be interested?

    Thanks for the giveaway,

  10. What an awesome giveaway! I'm interested in Cinder b/c I love fairy tales and their retellings. Cinder is so unique with having a cyborg Cinderella! So awesome! It would be interesting to listen to an audiobook. It's the old days where you listen to a grownup reading you fairy tales!
