Debbie was originally turned off by the cover of Cinder, the first in Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles but recently had a "what the heck was I thinking" moment. Once started, she devoured the series. "They are delightful. What makes them so delightful is not so much their setting, which could be more fleshed out, but their characters." Debbie liked all the couples, but found Scarlet and Wolf the most swoon-worthy. Have you read the series, and do you have a favorite couple? (Cannonball Read 8)
After about two years of starting every day with you monsters, this will be my final Pajiba Love. I’ll still be around— you know you can’t get rid of me— but starting next week, I’ll be moving full time onto another corner of the internet.

Thank you for being the smartest, funniest, greatest-GIFing people in the world who never made me feel TOO bad about my constant typos, bad math, and broken links. I Pajiba-Love you all with my whole heart.
