Oh, and NO!, EVEN IF WINTER IS BASED OFF FROM SNOW WHITE IT DOESNT MEAN THE OTHER CHARACTERS ARE THE 7 DWARFS, DONT YOU DARE DEMEAN AND DEGRADE THEM LIKE THAT! Sorry, I love the Lunar Chronicles and I just want other people to respect them as I do. I am a full time fangirl, if you are one too, you will understand the pain of disrespectfulness to our fandoms. Dont feel offended!(less)
“She was prettier than a bouquet of roses and crazier than a headless chicken. Fitting in was not an option.”
And... I've finished! *sob*
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of Lunar Chronicles. After finally giving in and picking up Scarlet, even though I hated Cinder, I just haven't been able to get enough of this series. And this longass final installment was a heart-pounding, fast-paced finale.
You know, I actually checked and this is the longest YA book I have ever read at over 820 page ...more
If you like sci-fi, fairy tale retellings, or you just want to read an epic & satisfying series--YOU NEED THE LUNAR CHRONICLES IN YOUR LIFE!
I’m going to miss the banter between Cinder and Thorne.
I’m going to miss all the relationships & friendships.
I’m going to miss my sassy queen Iko.
I'm going to miss this series so much. AHHH.
THIS IS ALL JUST SO BITTERSWEET. WOW.
UPDATE - Full video review here: https://youtu.be/KIcWKgTN294
TEASERS (from Marissa Meyer's Twitter):
She screamed like a thousand birds were picking at her flesh.
She screamed like the palace was burning down around her.
“Hold these wires and make sure they don’t touch.”
“What happens if they touch?”
“The ship will probably self-destruct.”
She was going to have to train herself not to stare at him quite as often as she was used to. That would be no easy task.
“May I request a new uniform? A towel seems inappropriat ...more
"Winter decided not to use her Lunar gift. She experiences bad hallucinations and her mental state is deteriorating."
Winter is going to be such an interesting character I'm so excited!
After Reading Cress
So, without too many spoilers, I'm just going to leave this little exchange here:
Winter: "You shouldn't call me crazy. They don't like that."
Other Character: "But you are!"
Winter: "I know that I am. Do you know how I know? Because the walls of t ...more
“Even in the Future the Story Begins with Once Upon a Time.”
Once Upon a Time, there was a lonely girl who dreamed too much. Her name was Katerina. She used to gaze at the sky and observe the faint light of the moon. One night, she watched a falling star and made a wish. She wished that she would belong. Escape. Travel. Feel. Little did she know that her heart's desire was about to be granted. For when the star landed on Earth, it took a woman's form. In some stories they call her the fairy g ...more
I write this review 3 months after finishing the book to give me the space to think about why I was so disappointed by this book so much. This review is definitely not representative of the majority opinion, and one I never expected to hold before reading this book. Don't get me wrong though. I was SO EXCITED for this book as it was the conclusion to what is a wonderful series. Maybe I was expecting too much, or perhaps I have changed as a person since reading the first three books, ...more
I've been a champion of THE LUNAR CHRONICLES for years now. I saw CINDER featured for months and months on Fantastic Fiction (b/c before I started using Goodreads), and I was simultaneously intrigued and horrified by the concept of a sci-fi YA retelling of a fairy tale. Honestly, I don't remember what finally convinced me to pick it up. I was just glad I did.
Now I'm not so sure. The first two books were fantastic, and while I wasn’t quite as fond of the third, it wasn’t ...more
"I can't believe this is happening. I can't fight like this, or start a revolution, or be a queen. I can't do anything like this. I'm literally broken."
Iko settled a hand on Cinder's shoulder. "Yeah, but broken isn't the same as unfixable."
Winter isn't perfect. Marissa Meyer has some very big shoes to fill. Expectations are high, fans are passionate... but I do feel she left us with a largely satisfying ending.
I know what a lot of non-readers are wondering: does it drag? Surprisingly, ...more
This finale to the Lunar Chronicles finds Cinder on a mission to take her rightful place on the throne of Luna, as she is the lost princess Selene.
Winter faces a major pacing problem. It's over 800 pages and a lot of it is just blah blah. It reminds me of a video game with too many tedious side quests and overlong cutscenes that you can't skip through. While there's plenty of action, the meat to garnish ratio here is not filling ...more
I just finished Cress ten minutes ago.
During the ten minutes after I had finished Cress:
How I feel when I see the release date for Winter:
HOW SHALL I MAKE IT?
O, Jacin and Winter, I await greedily.
Oh please I'm dying.
Dear Ms. Meyer,
Please give me this book lest I turn into a crazed and handsome half wolf, half lunar rabid warrior. Nothing will stand between me and
Of course, if yo ...more
A star for each one of my ships:
*Scarlet & Wolf, forever my favorites. They, I think, have had the roughest journey of all, but they're love also seems the strongest. They never waver, especially in this book.
*Cress & Thorne, who fully stole my heart in Winter. They are adorable beyond words, and so very, very perfect for each other.
*Winter & Jacin, with their childhood love turned into something far fiercer and truer. They are each other's ...more
I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS DON'T TOUCH ME RIGHT NOW.
I really really loved this book. The character interactions were ON POINT as always. I love this cast of characters so so much and I care SO MUCH ABOUT THEM.
World building - YAS. I loved reading about Luna and picturing everything, especially the throne room
I can't really totally give it a 5 stars because it just felt so long and like so many things happened at the beginning that there wasn't really a climax - that being said, it was really ...more
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S OVER! I was so happy with the way this book went and the way it ended. Well, one part made me sad. There were parts that I wanted to yell, throw things, hulk smash, off with heads and so forth and so on, but I digress. I don't want to give out any kind of spoilers since so many people are reading this book right now or are going to be reading. So, this review is going to be filled with some excerpts from the book and pictures because tha ...more
Oh my Gaaawwwwddddddd
What was that?! What splendid tragically heartbreaking exhilarating heart warming masterpiece of a conclusion was that?
Okay, deeeeeeppp breaths.........
Now to begin my review; first of all 823 pages of a story it was indeed. This was easily two books fit into one. Secondly they all finally got their happily ever afters, so I'm a messy ball of goo right now.
The book started of with a slightly slower pace, then elevated slowly as ...more
First off, the plot of this book was pretty nuts - packed to the brim with action. Completely wild and stressful. I was in CONSTANT worry about all my little book darlings. Honestly there were very few dull moments.
Is it completely contradictory for me to say this book was light and sweet but also intense and full of feels?
Winter + Jacin
Alright, I’m probably in the minority on this one. I wasn’t as attached to them as I was the other char ...more
I'm planning on posting a video review of the series so I won't put all my thoughts here (and those are A LOT of thoughts since the book is like a million pages long). Suffice it to say this book had me a nervous wreck from start to finish, and the ending was just SO satisfying.
Also I loved all the Snow White tie-ins. I see you, Marissa Meyer, being all clever :)

After the cover reveal: Why is each cover a different shade of indigo? Also, this is the most ominous apple I have ever seen.
Los personajes de este libro son mi vida, los amo a cada uno de ellos, (QUIZÁS A UNOS MAS QUE A OTROS), Cinder , Scarlet, Cress y Winter son unos personas perfectos, cada una de ellas tiene sus cosas buenas y malas, pero definitivamente CRESS se gano ...more
I tip my hat to Marissa Meyer for taking beloved fairy tales and masterfully putting her own incredible sci-fi spin to them. With so many storylines coming together in WINTER and the impending revolution, it could have been a mess but Meyer totally ...more
