So I was reminded about how much fun I had with my gif review posts of Throne of Glass and The Captive Prince series (basically I just express in gifs how I feel about things in generalized ways). I decided to do one for the Lunar Chronicles because why not. I was going to do a round up but decided I had enough to say about each. But I will be doing Cinder and Scarlet in this one and the other two at some point.
First up with Cinder!
My first reaction to Cinder herself:
MY REACTION TO HER AWFUL STEP-FAMILY THIS ENTIRE SERIES:
Don't listen to them Cinder:
My first reaction to Prince Kai:
Honestly my feeling toward their relationship in the entire series:
More on that later because it's going to come up.
But Kai's real dedication to his people:
I like royals who actually care about shit.
Poor Peony :
My first reaction to Dr. Erland:
General feeling about Iko:
I really love her okay.
And of course that bitch of all bitches Levana:
The drama at the ball:
The "reveal" of who Cinder is:
MOVING ON TO SCARLET
My first reaction to Scarlet:
I respect that, Scarlet. I like you.
My first reaction to Wolf:
My first reaction to Thorne:
And kind of Thorne/Iko:
Wolf's turn to the good side by the end:
How the stories started to interlock together and develop more:
Guys I'm pretty honest here, there was nothing in Scarlet that really got much of a reaction out of me. It was good in the sense it furthered the plot, but nothing really stood out to me in memory. I liked Scarlet and Wolf a LOT MORE in the later books than in this intro here. But I didn't want it unsaid that I was into the series and looking forward to the next one at this point.
