It's been ages since I've done a Friday Favorites. It's something I'm hoping to do quite a bit more often this year.
I'm sure those of you who are Lunar Chronicles lovers or who have followed me for a while aren't surprised that I loved Winter. You can see my reviews of the series: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Fairest. I'm also looking forward to Stars Above coming out in just a few weeks and seeing Marissa at a local bookstore. Check out why I loved Winter below...

YA SciFi, Dystopian, Fairy Tale Retelling

Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?
Marissa Meyer lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and three cats. She’s a fan of most things geeky (Sailor Moon, Firefly, color-coordinating her bookshelf . . .), and has been in love with fairy tales since she was given a small book of them when she was a child. She may or may not be a cyborg. Cinder is her first novel.
