Winter - The Lunar Chronicle Series

Winter - The Lunar Chronicle Series 

The last book of the Lunar Chronicle series. If you don't know what this book is or what the series is about, it's basically a twist to fairytale where princesses are from the moon, people have robot hands, and space ships traveling through space. This series has 4 books, Cinder (Cinderella), Scarlet (Red Riding Hood), Cress (Rapunzel), and Winter (Snow White). 

In this book, you get to be in different character's mindset for each chapter so it can be a little confusing and it's also hard to feel for them and to connect with them. However, it is an 800+ page book and everyone is doing their own thing, battling their battles, so it's nice to get the whole dynamic of things. 

It's hard for me to really summarize the whole book because :-
a. there's a lot of detail in 800+ 
b. you have to read the whole series to really understand the situation
c. I cannot Not spoil the whole book for people who have not read it yet because if I were to tell you the summary of the book, then I would be telling you or hinting you the ending. 

Overall, I really like the series. It was a smart twist to the classic fairytale. If you liked the TV show Once Upon a Time, then this series is the perfect guilty pleasure. 

Through out this book series, I really liked the connection and the chemistry between all the princesses. They might be just girls/cyborg, but they are tough and girl stick together. I also liked Wolf and Scarlet's relationship. I feel that they have this really sexy, cheeky thing going on. I absolutely adore Thorne and Cress. They are so cute and adorable together. It's a classic love story of a naughty boy falling in love with a naive girl. Their relationship will make you fall in love again, no doubt. Kai and Cinder's relationship is very mature and strong. I think it's really hard for a girl to see her boyfriend get marry with her aunt, so to do that, Cinder is very strong and she knows what best for everyone. 

Not forgetting, Winter and Jacin. Winter is this kind, naive, and innocent girl that has the softest heart with the strongest personality. Jacin on the other hand is like Edward Cullen, protective, loving, and annoyingly hot. Since they grew up together, Winter was uncertain over their relationship but in the end, ughhh, it was worth it guys! 

It's always sad to end a series because it's like the ending of Harry Potter, after having so much feelings and connection with all the characters, saying goodbye to them is hard. When you hit the last page and suddenly realize that it's the end, your heart will shatter to pieces because it's like saying goodbye to all your friends during high school graduation. You will never know what will happen to them next, you will never know what they are thinking, nor will you be able to live in their mindset and feel what they are feeling. But every good thing has to come to an end. It was a marvelous book/series and you will surely love the adventure, the action, the mystery, the secrets, and the romance. All the elements may seem overwhelming and too much to handle, but trust me, in the book, you will be craving more. 

It's a nice unexpected fairytale of how a brave princess becomes the queen with the help of other loyal princesses. 

hugs and kisses
