Review: I could care less about any of the small stories in this collection. But I did and still do care a whole lot about the story Something old, Something new. I was so happy the whole time I was reading it, I could not get my smile to stop. Even after I had finished it, I smiled for like two weeks on end because of how it ended.
The only real thing I did and still do wish for is a real ending or more of one for Thorn and Cress. Because they are my OTP ( one true pairing) in this series and I just LOVE them together!!!! Don’t get me wrong I love all of the other pairings and characters, but Cress and Thorn are just it for me.
Anyway back to the book….
The whole book full of different stories is nice, because its mostly that of the characters from the Lunar Chronicles before they all meet up. But most of it was stuff I didn’t really care to know about, except for the last story. Which is the best end for the series.
4 out of 5 stars.
