I was a bit disappointed with this one, as I had pretty high hopes. I loved the movie Titanic and love werewolf stories, so I was eagerly anticipating a book that mixed the two together. I couldn’t connect with the characters at all, which dragged the book down for me. But my main problem? The romance. I understand that it’s on a ship and time is limited, so things have to move fairly fast, but there’s a difference between fast-moving romance […]

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer
