Winter By: Marissa Meyer Review



I have finally done it. I  finished Winter, the last book in The Lunar Chronicles series. It took me long enough, but it was worth it. It was everything I wanted it to be and more, but now I have series ending depression. I can't believe it's over. I'm sad and I wish there was more. I may end up having to go back and read Fairest, even though I'm not usually a prequel/novella fan. I may have to at some point though, just because I'm not ready to leave this world. This book was over 800 pages and it still wasn't enough. I would even like to see more after where this book leaves off, even if it's just a short novella to see what everyone is doing.

I have to admit that at the beginning of this book I really didn't care for Winter. Or Jacin. Or anything having to do with them. I was starting to wonder if that would make me hate the book, but then luckily I started to like Winter little by little. Surprisingly, by the end of the book she became one of my favorite characters, maybe even my number one favorite character. As for all of the other characters, I loved them as usual and I am really happy about how they all ended up.

Although, for a while Kai did get on my nerves a little bit because I was wondering if he was ever going to do anything useful. Is it just me or does it seem like he was kind of blah and useless in this book until the end? Maybe that's just me.

I really enjoyed the humor in this book (especially with Cinder's foot LOL) as well. The whole novel was just magical, it's that good. The writing was superb, the plot was entertaining, all the characters that I loved from the other books were still fantastic, and the ending did not let me down. That's all I can ask from a final book in any series. There's just so much to love in this book! Like Cress + Thorne! <3

Overall Winter gave me so many feels throughout and it was just PERFECT. I recommend it to anyone who has read the other books in the series, you won't be disappointed.
