I reviewed the Lunar Chronicles on my blog back while waiting for Fairest to be released. Now that I've read Winter and the series is complete, I'd just like to officially place all of them on my personal THIS SERIES/BOOK IS TOTAL PERFECTION MY FAVORITE FOREVER list. That's a little hyperbolic, but you get the idea.

I stand by my gushing in the old post, and especially by my saying this series just gets better with each book. Winter had me on the edge of my seat for, well, a lot of the book judging by my progress updates. I still adore my precious OTPs (all of them. I ship them all so hard), and the writing is so accessible and easy and fun, and the characters and dialogue and relationships (friendships included because they are just as precious and perfect and shippable) all sparkle off the page, and the act is tense and nerve-wracking and...

Ahem, anyway. Again, all that comes across very strongly in my progress updates. Along with a lot of shouty-typing. I love this book, I love this series, and I never want to say good-bye to this world. I'm not sure I can coherently say much more than that about it. But that's what happens when I love something this much: too many feels = diminishing eloquence. Everything becomes gushing and flailing and shouting and hyperbole. So let my shortened review of this final installment of the Lunar Chronicles stand as testimony of just how incredible it is, and how much I think everyone should read all the books in the series.

14.9% "It's funny, but even though Cinder/Kai was the first ship in the series, they're actually the one I'm least interested in as a couple. I like Cinder and Kai, don't get me wrong, but they're more interesting to me as individuals than they are together, so far. The other three ships (FOUR SHIPS IN ONE SERIES AND NO LOVE TRIANGLES IN SIGHT I FEEL SO SPOILED/HAPPY) all have me shipping them like whoa."
