Happy 12 Days of BLOGMAS! And happy December!
To start with, thank you Swetlana @ The Caffeinated Bookworm Life, for sharing the 12 Days of Blogmas book event! The idea is to post every other day between December 2nd and December 24th, so that you can have fun with some Christmas book posts and look back on the books you read in 2017. I am very excited to get started with Day One: A Love Letter to Your Favorite Book of the Year. And without further delay…
My dearest Lunar Chronicles,
You are such a fantastic example of how a YA book/series does not need a love triangle to be successful. I’m serious, that was one of my favorite features of the storyline. There was some boy drama because they are teenagers, which is fine, but no love triangle drama between Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter. We never saw the female characters having to fight over a male character or a boy coming between them in any way. They were a group of supportive, badass, real, women. Also, you have such a diverse group of characters, when it comes to their physical appearances, desires, personalities, and backgrounds.
I love fairy tale retellings but your stories are so much more than that. There are fairytale foundations, but they blossomed into stories about friendship, love, growth, and determination that everyone can relate to, learn from, and be inspired by. The character arcs of each character are brilliantly written and have a very natural flow to them, nothing seemed forced with the way that the characters changed throughout the series.
I am still waiting for the TV series/ movie announcement to be made btw, because you deserve it!
What was your favorite book or series you read in 2017? Please share in the comments!
