Quick Review: The Little Android - Marissa Meyer

The Little Android is a retelling of The Little Mermaid, set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles by New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer.

When android Mech6.0 saves the life of a handsome hardware engineer, her body is destroyed and her mechanics discover a glitch in her programming. Androids aren’t meant to develop impractical reasoning or near-emotional responses . . . let alone fall in love.

Quick Review:
I absolutely love Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chroncles series and I love that she's written so many short stories set in this world that she gives to fans as little freebies. The Little Android is actually a retelling of The Little Mermaid (the original version rather than the Disney one) and it can be read for free on Wattpad HERE.

I have to admit that when I saw the title I had hoped the story might be about Iko, the funniest little boy crazy android who happens to be one of my favourite characters in the series, but now I've read the story I'm kind of glad it was about a new character! This story works as a complete stand alone so it doesn't matter if you've read any of the other books - although if you are familiar with the series you'll be pleased to spot a small appearance from Cinder!

I'm not going to go into details of the plot - it's free, and short so it'll only take you about 20 minute so you have absolutely no excuse not to read it yourself! - but this is a really cute but rather bitter-sweet story that gave me all the feels at the end.

Thanks Marissa Meyer for all these extras, can you please write lots more of them because I'm not ready to say goodbye to this world or these characters yet!
