The Book Corner – The Lunar Chronicles

Hello People!

Today I’m gonna annoy you with how much I loved Cress.

Yep.

When I first started this series, I wasn’t too impressed with it, to be honest.

Cinder wasn’t a heavy read by any means, but I didn’t find it exactly captivating either.

As a protagonist, I kinda liked her, but there wasn’t the emotional connection I thought there would be, and the same happened with Kai.

I went on reading though, and I’m glad I did, because with Scarlet things started to take a pleasant turn, mainly because of the switching pov thing (I mean, I cared more about Cinder in Scarlet, than in her own book).

And, let’s be honest: also because of Thorne.

See, not every book/saga has a character so remarkable that is able to make a real difference, but this one does.

Thorne is that guy that you either love or hate, but can’t argue that is good for the story.

And me… Well, I ❤ Thorne.

Anyway, Scarlet was definitely more enjoyable than the first book, though it’s not perfect.

The major improvement comes with Cress.

Aaaaaahhhh, Cress.

For someone who blindly loves Rapunzel (and sees Tangled as THE canon version of the story because.), it wasn’t easy to please me. I was expecting to be veeeeery critical and veeeeery judgy about it, but I couldnt.

I liked Cress. I liked Thorne. I liked them together. liked the context. I liked pretty much everything.

I was dreading a weak and remissive character, some unoriginal washed-up version of it, but luckily that was not the case.

Besides the fact that there was great chemistry between all the stories and the characters – and that you could finally see the puzzle pieces coming together – this book read so smoothly, I didn’t even realize I was halfway through it at some point.

I really hope they’re gonna turn it into a tv show or a movie series soon (I’ll do some reasearch and see if the rights have already been secured by some major like they did with other book series).

Now we’ll have to wait till November to read Winter (and I still have to read Fairest), but I’ll probably spend the next few months diving into Cresswell fanfictions (if you know some good ones, please share!) because CRESSWELL OTP.

By the way, I have a habit of fancasting very book I read, so I’m just gonna leave you here my fancast for this series. Tell me if you could see it work 😉
