Don t talk to me for like a week In other news, I broke my promise again of not reading the book the day it comes out and in one sitting Why I always do this to myself I always read the book the day they come out and in one sitting and I don t think about the consequences like how I have to wait another whole f cking year again.This book is going to make me suffer I know it Like Clockwork Prince.I think I better wait until the last book comes out to read the whole series completely without suffe [...]
I can t remember the last time a book made my heart feel this empty and this full at the same time Man, what a magnificent installment The story here is so epic and sprawling, and the way it s told especially the pacing, how the different story threads were woven together it was just perfect Not to mention that I love these characters so much it makes my heart ache Waiting for the next book is already causing me pain and we ve still got TWO WHOLE YEARS TO GO GAH.
WHAT THE HELL MY HEART WHY CASSIE WHY.
My reaction after finishing Lady Midnight My reaction after finishing Lord of ShadowsI ve had it with love triangles I m usually up for them as long as my ship prevails in the end but man did Cassie complicate things for every possible pairing in this book Emma Julian Mark I thought this triangle wasn t so bad after I was done with Lady Midnight cause I knew Emma and Julian couldn t be romantically involved but Cassie effed things up with EJ always finding ways to hold each other and kiss It was [...]
These books seriously just keep getting better and better The writing has improved SO much and the characters here are my absolute favorites And I cannot believe I m saying this, but I actually liked Jace and Clary.But just like with Lady Midnight, I was into the actual characters than whatever the larger plot arc was I guess I don t care that much about Malcom, Annabel, the book, the Shadow Lord, or most of that drama Pretty sure anything or nothing could be happening and I d be just as entert [...]

Break my heart Break it in pieces I give you permission I don t recall giving my permission though I don t recall allowing Cassandra Clare to wreck havoc on my soul and stomp on its pieces before scattering them to the wind But she did it anyway A dark time is coming for Shadowhunters A terrible time Their power will be crushed, their might thrown down into the dirt, and their blood will run like water through the riverbeds of the world Blood, ashes and despair That s the perfect way to describe [...]
When it comes to Lord of Shadows I really don t even know where to start I loved the book I loved it so much I found myself rereading certain passages just because I couldn t help myself but had to experience them again and again Cassie has always been one of my favourite authors and the I read from her, the I get captured in her world It s not just the world of the shadow hunters though, it s the entire package Cassandra Clare is giving to us There were so many details and things I loved abou [...]

He caught her by the wrist, brought her hand to his bare chest Splayed her fingers over his heart It beat against her palm, like a fist punching its way through his sternum Break my heart, he said Break it in pieces I give you permission The hardest part of reading this book is you have to put up with an emotional influx, from what Clare always tangles the love of the main characters like Jace and Clary, or Jem and Tessa and Will, I am certain that Julian and Emma will break you even like no on [...]

this review was originally posted on twirling pages Lord of Shadows left me feeling deceased Lord of Shadows was one of my most anticipated releases of 2017 and i was worried aside from the obvious fact of PAIN and WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY FAVES, i was afraid this installment would disappoint me the i read and review novels, the critical and cynical i get i rarely enjoy books for the sake of it unless there are low expectations but with Lord of Shadows, i couldn t help but have high expectations [...]

is this what death feels like Being overly dramatic BUT STILL, this was one crazy ride and THAT ENDING HOW WHAT WHY WHYYYY Two years is too long a wait for the conclusion The Last Hours better be worth it.
This was truly a masterpiece Darn I have read over 700 pages in words yet I am speechless with the emotions I currently feel Full review to come Cassandra Clare certainly delivered.editMark oc my fav character I m not gonna do the entire cast but I think this guy would make a great Mark bone structure n all and maybe lighter hair.I have found the perfect Tiberius Blackthorn I love him The rest of the cast are already in my Lady Midnight review.Update on FeelingsI am in the minority here when I s [...]
All the Shadowhunters were beautiful, like moonlight shearing off the edges of broken glass lovely and deadly Beautiful things, cruel things, cruel in that way that only people who absolutely believed in the rightness of their cause could be cruel I ve been a massive fan of the Shadowhunters books for almost half of my life I read TMI the original trilogy about nine years ago, and have followed each new release since with great anticipation I have a vivid memory of bringing a copy of City of Bon [...]

I really enjoyed my time spent reading this and was sad when it was over I listened to the audiobook, which is narrated by James Marsters who played Spike in Buffy and he did a great job I laughed at how the political climate in the Shadowhunter world mirrors some U.S current events I looooooved the characters of Kit and Ty Emotional scenes brought the feels It was fun to revisit locations from Clare s previous series.The one thing I really rolled my eyes at was that the romances got tangled bey [...]
I finished this a month ago but BOIIII IM HURTIM NOT OKAYPLEASE READ THE SHADOWHUNTER BOOKS
This review might contain spoilers for Lady Midnight You re Kit Herondale, she said The lost Herondale I didn t realize I was lost, said Kit I never felt lost Do you hear that sound, you bragging Shadowhunter brats That s the sound of me clapping.Someone just had to say that Okay, this started as a joke but I genuinely have one observation or five to make on that I must say I m growing quite weary of the so called Shadowhunter boastfulness If it were about any other thing, at this point everyone [...]
