If you love fairy tales, Disney princesses, space, or all of the above, you should definitely read The Lunar Chronicles! If your favorite princess happens to be Snow White, you’ll love Winter – the final book in The Lunar Chronicles series and the main protagonist of this book. If you’re already a fan, keep reading to see what songs remind me of this Lunar Princess. If you’re looking for some of my other playlists you can find them here.
Due to *reasons* (unsaid here for anyone who hasn’t read the series yet), Winter isn’t always all there. She’s often in her own mind, saying things others find crazy, but somehow manages to make friends wherever she goes. I tried to capture this with the songs I picked for her. Check out a few of my faves below.
“Dear Winter” – AJR
So, I’m pretty sure this song was written about Winter. Is AJR secretly reading Marissa Meyer books? Do they actually know a Winter?? I need answers, but I’m glad this song exists. It was made for her.
Notable Lyrics: “Dear Winter, I hope you like your name
I hope they don’t make fun of you
When you grow up and go to school, okay?
‘Cause Winter is a badass name”
Fireflies, Owl City
Winter loves animals and for some reason (you know, since she does tend to have conversations with things in the menagerie & hallucinates) I can totally see her in her room, imagining there are ten thousand lightning bugs trying to give her hugs.
Notable Lyrics: “I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems”
You’re My Best Friend, Queen
Winter just wants to be friends with EVERYONE. She even gets prickly Scarlett to be her friend, and if that’s not an accomplishment, I don’t know what is.
Notable Lyrics: “You’re my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh, you’re my best friend”
