Even though I've already read some of the stories in this book, it was nice to be back in this world with all those lovable characters. I didn't really realize how much I missed them. Winter was my favorite again and also my favorite story here. But all are more or less favorites, only the last one wasn't for me. The wedding trope just isn't for me. Still, the story was also a beautiful tale about friends.

This was a lovely collection of stories. It was very interesting reading about all of these characters and their backgrounds. It‘s definitely going to help look at the series from a different perspective when I read the rest of the series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Beautiful collection of short stories from all the main characters past. Each one relates to something said in the series itself, like Carswell growing up a swindler. It was Winters heartbreaking story of making her decision to stop using her gift that hit me deepest. Then Scarlets brought me up to new heights. Really enjoyed all the stories.

“His parents, Carswell had learned at a very young age, liked things that did what they were told, when they were told. And that didn‘t include headstrong felines. Or, as it turned out, thirteen-year-old boys.”

My final review as this will finally catch me up!! Woohoo!!

I really enjoyed these short stories, but I think it's because I read them in their recommended order scattered throughout the series instead of just sitting down and reading them all in one go. Interspersed, they added background and depth to the main books. As a collection, they aren't in any order that I can tell and I think they would lose a lot of their impact. I especially enjoyed⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) the final story, set after the Wires & Nerve graphic novels, that serves as an epilogue for the series and was really fun. There is also a retelling of The Little Mermaid that I liked a lot. All in all, I absolutely loved the Lunar Chronicles and am glad I've been adding these to my permanent library as I go along - I'll definitely be rereading them sometime!

These short stories were a great way to revisit some of my favorite characters from this series. Some were set before the series started and some were after, which made it fun mix.

Bookish song Nr. 26: When We Stand Together

Well, actually, this song fits almost any YA book nowadays. But in my head I was, once again, busy with the Lunar Chronicles. And then this song popped up. Now it's my song for the whole series. End of story.

I love the Lunar Chronicles. This book was some prequels that explain events in more depth or from other points of view and then a wonderful epilogue to the whole series that my romance loving heart adored.

Had some chores to do and borrowed a random audio from Libby. Been awhile since I read the Lunar Chronicles but as soon as I heard the familiar names, it all came back! Fun to revisit while getting stuff done!

It was fun to spend a little extra time w/all the characters, see some beginnings and some side stories. I haven't been loving short stories in a while, but I enjoyed this collection. It helps that they all took place in the same world w/characters I knew. They didn't add a lot to my understanding of the story or world, but I didn't expect them to, honestly. Unsurprisingly, the last story was probably my fave, but most were very satisfying.

We have a few stories that flesh out our characters even more, another fairy tale retelling on the side because why not?? and the cherry on top: the epilogue I NEEDED after the finale of Winter! ♥️
Well, onto Wires and Nerve now

Finishing this book, completes my reading of the Lunar Chronicles. I loved this series, I‘d give the whole series a very solid 4.5, and definitely recommend it to people who like YA and fairytale retellings.

My husband drives about an hour to and from work everyday so one of our favorite things to do together is pick a series and he will listen to the audiobook and I read. Then we spend some time together at the end of the day talking about the story. One of my absolute favorite series of all time is the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and this is one that we enjoyed together. I also may have incorporated parts of it into our wedding in 2017 😉🥰

cherinium What a sweet family tradition! It's wonderful you are able to connect over books that way. 💕 5y

It has been too long since I read the Lunar Chronicles to fully appreciate this collection of novellas. But it was still fun visiting this world and favorite characters.

I am officially done with The Lunar Chronicles series!☹️ I really enjoyed this collection of novellas. But what I loved most of all was the novella at the end where everyone went to Wolf and Scarlet's wedding. I am so glad that everyone got their happy ending. This was my 1st completed book in the #24b4monday readathon.

Shley9225 So glad you loved that last novella, it was my fave too 5y

I just finished Stars above and overall I give the book a 3.5/ 5 stars. Not counting the last story in the book because that one alone is a 5/5 stars and worth its own rating. The other stories were cute and entertaining but I didn‘t fall as hard for them as I did the last story or the Lunar Chronicles.

I just finished Stars Above, and I loved it. It was so nice to visit my Lunar Chronicles friends, and it was interesting all the way through.
There was just one story that I feel didn't need to be in there, but otherwise, very quality content.

Stars Above was a wonderful way to wrap up TLC. It was full of a nice mix of prequels, new stories, and an epilogue to the whole series. Speaking of which, that epilogue was amazing, and you all should read it. Idc if Scarlet is your least favourite. It‘s good no matter what. While some of the stories were better than others (see that above sequel for my favourite) none of them were bad, which is a rare accomplishment for short story compilations.

BridgetteM Ok, you convinced me. Added this to my TBR! 5y

A fun final chapter in the Lunar Chronicles. It fills in so many holes as the set up of many events in the series. It is a bunch of short stories that made it a great way to visit the characters I feel in love with and the final story is my favorite. It takes place after the series at the wedding of Scarlett and Wolf. It was great to check in on everyone after all they have been through.

A collection of short stories giving some background of each of the main characters. I thought that Cinder and Kai‘s first meeting from his point of view was really fun!

I am totally finished with all the Lunar Chronicles books 😱😢 and this was somewhere in the middle. It's a fun collection of short stories about all your main characters, although since Scarlet is my least favorite character, I skipped out on the last half of the last story.
Fairwell, Cinder, Kai, Iko, Thorne, Cress, Winter, Jason, Scarlet & Wolf!!!

At this point, I'm pretty convinced that Marissa Meyer could rewrite the phone book to make me cry. I loved these stories, some of them prologues and some of them epilogues to the main stories to give even more of a glimpse into what makes up the characters
