On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where we list all the books we desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.
Okay, you do not know how much I crave for this book. Ever since I saw it and read the blurb. LOL, at first, I thought that the cover was very X-men like, sort of Marvel/DC-movie-poster-ish. I've been hearing lots of good things about it. Anyhoo, all's I know is I want to read it~

Synopsis from GR:
What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.
Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.
I love robots. Just to put that out there. I love the idea of cyborgs too. I also really like Cinderella. Now, put these together and it's just a plain genius concept! A partly robot Cinderella? Seriously? That's flipping awesome. DOLPHIN FLIPPING AWESOME. I applaud you Marissa Meyer (oooh your last name). Anyway, I really want this~ I know I have the ARC eBook, but I still want a physical copy of it~
