Another month means another Aesthetic Addict!
The theme for the month is retelling. 

My book is Cinder by Marissa Meyer!

CinderMarissa Meyer

Retelling, Sci-Fi

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. 

And here's my aesthetic post!

Time to explain my choice of pictures.

 This is a picture from the animated movie by Disney. The animated Cinderella. But it's a pretty important scene from the movie. So I decided to add it!
 In the book, Cinder is given a really nice pair of gloves from her prince. So...obviously important. 
I know that this foot is creepy. And super realistic. But Cinder is an android. So we need this. And as in Cinderella, Cinder has a foot that doesn't fit. An android foot. 

The book is set in futuristic China. So I chose a skyline of present day Shanghai. Which looks pretty fantastic, by the way.

And, last but not least, is a picture of the crystal/glass high heel shoe that Cinderella wears. But, even though, Cinder is an android and doesn't wear shoes like this, but it's important to the original myth.
