WINTER Release Day | Lunar Chronicles Fun & Games


After what probably feels like a very long wait, WINTER is finally here and I couldn’t be more excited! And maybe a little bit nervous to see how it all ends!! As you probably know, I’ve been celebrating the entire series with the Lunar Chronicles (Re)Read along that kicked off back in August. WINTER is the last leg of the read along so if you’d like to join in the discussion via Twitter/Instagram hashtag, check it out at #TLCReadAlong. The read along is totally chill and is basically just a way for all of us to chat together (no spoilers, please). Hope to see you there!

I had devised a few fun posts and games for the Lunar Chronicles (Re)Read along but encourage anyone to pick one up, share, or post if they so desire! There’s no limit to this love and these posts are for all you Lunartics out there! Join in the fun with any one of the activities below!

  • The Lunar Chronicles Book Tag
  • Lunar Chronicles MASH (see my post below!)
  • Kiss, Marry, Kill (Kai, Wolf, Thorne)
  • Lunar Chronicles Scattergories (Pick any letter and associate it with things in the book — see my post below!)
  • Personality Quiz: Which Lunar Chronicles Character Are You? (See below — Updated for Winter’s release! If you’ve taken it before, you may get a different result so come on over and take it again!)
  • Lunar Chronicles-themed Pinterest Boards

Today I’m sharing some of my turns with these games so feel free to leave a comment and let me know your results, create your own post, or share somewhere on social media! It should be lots of fun!


Lunar Chronicles MASH

If you’re not familiar with MASH or if you’ve forgotten how to play, all you do is pick a number (any number you want) and count off each item on the list according to your number. (For example, if you pick two, you count Winter as 1, Scarlet as 2 and Scarlet gets crossed off. Cress as 1, Winter as 2 so Winter gets crossed off, and so on). Higher numbers are usually more fun because you don’t really know where you’ll end up! Once there’s only one option left in any given category, circle that option and you do not continue to count it as you cross things off.
I’m choosing SEVEN and here are my results! 

TLC MASH results
My Lunar Chronicles MASH card reveals that I would: 

  • Marry Thorne
  • Be BFFs with Cinder
  • Have a job as a Thaumaturge
  • Live on Luna
  • Have the ability to glamour
  • Drive a hover

I SWEAR I did not rig it so I would end up with Thorne!!! It’s just meant to be ;D 


Scattergories was one of my favorite games back in the day! To adapt to play here, I’m modifying the directions just a teensy bit to make it easier to play. (This was actually kind of hard when I tried it…) Here’s what you do!

  • Choose any letter of the alphabet (in the original game you roll a die which dictates it for you — since we WANT to have answers and it’s not a competition, feel free to choose your own!).
  • Answer the following list using words or names ONLY beginning with the letter of your choice. You can get a little creative if you need to/want to!
  • I’m going with fewer categories instead of a whole bunch because this turned out to be trickier than I thought! So instead of just one per category, think of as many as you can for each one!
  1. A Character’s Name:
  2. A place in the book:
  3. A piece of technology or scientific data:
  4. Occupation/Character role:

I’m choosing the letter C for mine (so if you want to use C for yours too, look away until after you do yours to challenge yourself to really come up with as many as you can without seeing mine first)!

  1. A Character’s Name: Cinder, Cress, Captain Carswell Thorne, Channary
  2. A place in the book: Commonwealth… Hmmm. I’m blanking. That’s all I got!
  3. A piece of technology or scientific data: Chip, cyborg, comm, cybernetic technology
  4. Occupation/Character role: Cage fighter, captive, captain, cyborg

Whew that was harder than I thought! But still fun to test my brain and see what I could come up with. I bet S and L would be great letters to use too!


I’ve revamped the original Lunar Chronicles personality quiz that I made for the upcoming release of WINTER! It includes more characters, better results, and you may get a different result if you take it again! If this is your first time hearing about the quiz, take it below — and let me know which result you got!!

So tell me — what were your results on the games? Which Lunar Chronicles character are you? And most importantly, how excited are you for WINTER!?!? Happy reading, friends! 

More Lunar Chronicles fun!

    I just got back from the Lunar Ball! I am super excited to start Winter pretty soon. And I got Cinder in the quiz 🙂 Which means I totally get Kai all to myself!

  2. Morgan @ Gone with the Words

    I marry Jacin (hope I like him in Winter!!), BFFs with Cress (aww), have a job as a Royal (!!!) on Luna (!!!), skills as an android sidekick, and have a hover for a vehice. I love MASH 😀 Counted to 11 btw, I closed my eyes and made tick marks to decide hehe. Such a FUN post!! You’re so creative. I just starting thinking of a fun celebratory post I want to do for The Raven King next year, hopefully I make it happen. Can’t wait to go home and read Winter!!!!

  3. Danielle @ Love at First Page

    Your posts are so creative, Brittany! Love it!
    So I got Cinder, which didn’t surprise me because as I was answering the questions I thought a lot of them fell toward her personality. But I’m still sticking with Cress as my spirit animal. 😀

  4. Cynthia @ Bingeing On Books

    I am SO EXCITED for Winter!! I started reading it as soon as it showed up on my Kindle this morning. I am usually a really fast reader, but I am trying to take my time with this one. I will be so devastated when I am done. I will miss these characters so much.
