Winter | Marissa Meyer
The #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana. Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won't approve of her feelings for her childhood friend--the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long. Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer's national bestselling Lunar Chronicles series.

#WondrousWednesday on a Thursday!!

1 - I usually have one “main“ book, and then several that are chapter-a-day(ish) reads - buddy reads, nonfiction, “hard“ books, etc.
2 - I've read a lot of books I've really enjoyed this year, but the tagged book/series definitely popped into mind. I wasn't expected to enjoy these nearly as much as I did. I've bailed on several books this year and always like to make a small notation as to why I did so, so here⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) are my list of reasons so far this year: Boring, Meh, So ridiculous, The heck, Just dumb, Slow, Boring, Guy is just so arrogant, Just too weird, Depressing. To give you an idea of what makes me abandon a book 😂

Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView and thanks for coming up with these fun questions @Eggs !!
3w
Eggs Love your reasons👍🏼📚🤩 3w
Leftcoastzen I love your reasons ,too ! 😁 3w
TheSpineView You're welcome 3w
TheAromaofBooks @Eggs @Leftcoastzen - Thanks! Sometimes I think about giving a book a second chance and I like to remember why I set it down in the first place! 😂 3w

These two. For a book that was 800 pages, felt only 400. Big, yet not too big. Only thing was Winters Snow White wasn‘t much retelling compared to the others stories. Still fit very well. So much was going on, yet never felt overwhelming. I felt most for Scarlet and Wolf, with all they‘ve been through. Cress & Thorne really grew on his speech at the end. Didn‘t fully get Winter & Jacin. Not enough time for me.
Kai & Cinder? perfect for each other.

CrowCAH LOVED ❤️ this series! Scarlet and Wolf my favorite couple of the four! 2mo

Finished Winter by Marissa Meyer!! LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Definitely my favourite out of the lunar chronicles. Winter was amazing and I loved how her character was written. Kai and Cinders story progressed so much and cant wait to see how it finishes. Thorne and Cress gave me life. I loved their story with all my heart. Wolf and Scarlets story was PERFECTION. Wolf is such a precious character and Scarlet balances out the sweetness with (continued)

OliviaV (Continuation) her quick mouth. Jacin was amazing! I love him so much and ship him and winter SO HARD. 5⭐️. Cant wait to read the Final book of this series. Started Finale by Stephanie Garber. 6mo

This is the technical conclusion of the Lunar Chronicles (although there are also two graphic novels and some short stories) and although it was 823pgs, it didn't feel too long as there was SO much going on. I felt like the build-up to the rebellion was realistic in both the setbacks and successes. Reading Fairest before this book really did work, because I felt more connected to Levana and her choices as well. Overall, I 100% recommend this ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) series. I loved the fairy tale echoes and also fell in love with basically every character haha

Clare-Dragonfly Now that I see it‘s just “volume 2” I‘m not certain whether I‘ve read it, but I‘ll find out when I pick up my hold 😁 6mo
Clwojick Great match! 💜 6mo
TheAromaofBooks @Clare-Dragonfly - Yes, they are volumes 1 & 2 and are definitely two parts of the same story. The second book starts with a little sum-up of what happened in the first book, so you could probably read it on its own? But together they are pretty fun to see things happening to all the characters. 6mo

I'm posting an early #BookReport/#WeeklyForecast as we are leaving on vacation first thing tomorrow morning!! 🎉 Today will be filled with completely all those million tasks that I used to think my mom was crazy for trying to get done before a trip 😂 Yet another example of how life changes as you get older!

So #BookReport - I finished Cress (loved it) and also read Fairest, which I am just realizing that I never reviewed! Next post! I've also ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) been reading the short stories in Stars Above in the recommended order between main books, so it's actually almost completely finished as well - only one short story left!! My not-Lunar-Chronicles-reads were Jane of Lantern Hill - a reread that I absolutely loved - and then an attempt at one of my long-lost Kindle books, Only the Truth, which was a total bomb... that I also haven't reviewed yet LOL

As for my #WeeklyForecast, about half ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) these books are in the literal crate of books I'm taking with me on vacation, plus, you know, a few bonus books just in case the mood strikes me... plus my Kindle... 😂 Weather report for the week is cool and scattered rain, so I am going prepared for just hanging out, which is fine with me!!

We should have internet next week so I am hoping to check in, but we'll see how things unfold!! @Cinfhen

We're pretty stoked to get away for a few days, although the dogs are looking at us with their sad eyes because they know what's up! 😂 It's hard to feel toooo bad for them since my sister comes to stay and completely spoils them whenever we're gone! Oh, and two more books came in the mail today so the crate is quite full now 😆 6mo

A worthy ending to this fast-paced YA / Sci-Fi series, although I feel like Meyer could have just skipped the whole Winter character as she didn‘t do anything except looking good.

What type of reader are you? Do you listen to something while reading or read on silence?

I like to listen to music or put a TV Show on for background noise.

Wow! What an ending.

I've been devouring this series, and I'm sad that it's over, but it was such a fun read. This book is the biggest of the four, but you won't notice because it's full of so much action. 😁

If reimagined fairy tales, or YA sci-fi interests you, you should definitely read this series.

A wonderful conclusion to the series. While this book did seem to drag at some points (and the final battle against Levana herself felt a bit anti-climactic) seeing team Cinder pull together on Luna (which was super cool btw) and win the day was a cathartic ending to the series. I feel better for finally finishing the series.

Bookish song Nr. 25: Unwell

I was still suffering from a bad book hangover after finishing Winter, when this song came up on Deezer. My first thought was: That's Winter!
But I was unsure, if it really was a song for her. Then the song kept on playing and Winter just stayed in my head and refused to leave.
Now the connection is stuck and the more I listen to the song, the better it fits.

So, there's this book character called Winter. And she crawled into my heart. And I guess she likes it there, because I guess she'll stay there. Then I'll keep her warm and comfy and save.

I closed the book with one side being so happy for them all, and the other side of me feeling sad that the serie's over. Now I need to look out for the short stories.

Winter was a decent conclusion to the series. The ending satisfied me enough, as everybody gets their own fairytale ending, however the book could have been quite a bit better as a whole. I'd still recommend reading the series, but it might take a little extra energy to get through the entire thing.

What a great book to close out an amazing series. I really enjoyed each book of the Lunar Chronicles. I still have Stars Above to read, but Cinder‘s storyline is now complete. I loved the characters, got caught up in the world, and was fully invested in the story. #Lennox #catsoflitsy

Just finished Fairest. Starting Winter tonight. Can wait to find out more! I‘m definitely hooked on this series. This series was great! I wasn‘t sure I would even like this series when I started reading Cinder, however the more I read, the more I got attached to the characters! By the time I was almost done reading Winter I couldn‘t put it down till I finished it! I would definitely recommend this series!

There were many things that frustrated me with the final book. I‘m sure some of that came from caring about the characters so much. The story felt like it was on a cycle of Team makes plan, plan fails, team gets separated, captured, injured, reunited and repeat for 800 pages! Iko and Throne still had the best moments and lines in the book. Overall it was a bitter sweet ending and I loved the series as a whole.
