TBR Pile. Sorry it's late. Featuring "Cracked" and "Cinder"

For today's To Be Read Pile (which was supposed to be yesterday :) sorry), the two books are K. M. Walton's Cracked and Marissa Meyer's Cinder. I have been waiting to read Cinder for the longest time but life has been getting in the way and I have been forced to keep putting it off, but hopefully I will get to it this week.

 K.M. Walton's Cracked. "Sometimes there's no easy way out."

         Description from the inside cover:
    "Victor hates life. He has no friends, he gets beaten up at school, and his parents are always criticizing him. Tired of feeling miserable, Victor takes a bottle of his mother's sleeping pills-only to wake up in the hospital.
     Bull is angry, and he takes all of his rage out on Victor. That makes him feel better, at least a little. But it doesn't stop Bull's grandfather from getting drunk and hitting him. So Bull tries to defend himself with a loaded gun.
     When Victor and Bull end up as roommates in the same psych ward, there's no way to escape each other or their problems. Which means things are going to get worse--much worse--before they get better."

Marissa Meyer's Cinder

    Description from

       "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."

I am probably most excited about Cracked because the description reminds me of Ellen Hopkin's Impulse which I enjoyed very much. I like to learn about people's problems and why we do the things we do so I think this book will be very interesting. Also Cinder looks like it will be very surprising to see a new take on a classic fairy tale which I really like.
