AND THE ROMANCE AGHHHHH. Like I mean, is Cassandra Clare casually trying to torture her readers?! Emma and Julian NEED to find a way to break the curse. I mean IT SHOULDN’T EVEN BE LEGAL TO MAKE A PERMANENT DECISION LIKE THAT WHEN YOU ARE TWELVE. Seriously?? What is the Clave thinking? Well take that back because the Clave is cruel and evil anyways so actually it makes perfectly logical sense! But honestly because Cassandra Clare is a ‘happily ever after’  author for the most part *CRIES* “LIVVYYYYYY, MAXXXXX it’s pretty predictable that the curse will be broken, but how?? *raises eyebrow* WELL WE MUST WAIT ONLY ONE WHOLE YEAR TO FIND OUT…


Can I please stab her through the words of my book?! How I feel about this character: AHHHHSDHREDH. It’s like the new Celeste from The Selection but a solid million times worse. She’s a disgrace to the shadow world, period. This sounds harsh but if you’ve read Lord of Shadows you know what I mean: ZARA GO AND LIVE IN A DARK HOLE ALONE. FOREVER.

Dear Cassandra, let the dead be dead. IT’S PRETTY SIMPLE.

How many characters can come back to life? It’s starting to get slightly ridiculous. Not that I want death but, let’s count: Jace, Simon, Annabel, Malcom, (hopefully Livvy) and I feel like I’m missing a LOT more, but for some stupid reason I can’t find a list of the resurrected TMI characters?? (like why doesn’t that exist? lol) I felt like it was unnecessary for Malcom to come back from death because it was just like: wooowww you’re back again, except from the bottom of the ocean as a zombie to finish your messed up conquest.

The TMI fam is back = happiness

Yayayayayayyyy so much more…MALEC! Oh yeah, also Clary, Jace, and people. Isn’t that just a LOVELY piece of fan art below? Lol I’m dying looking at this. MAGNUS LOOKS LIKE A DIVA/PUNK GIRL. I’M SO SORRY I SHOWED THIS TO YOU. 😂

  1. OHMYGOSH!!! So agree with you! Lady Midnight was awesome but Lord of Shadows was on a totally different level! The ending! Oh the ending broke me. Into teeny tiny pieces and my heart is not going to be okay unless and until I have the next book in my hands! That ending was just cruel and pure torture!! How am I going to survive till then?!!! Oh and love the gifs!! ❤

  4. I actually haven’t read all the books, but don’t worry I skimmed the post and I promise I didn’t get any spoilers out of it. 😉 I tried the Mortal Instrument series a couple of years ago, and while I remember loving the first book, overall there were too many plot twists for me and too much romance (don’t hurt me, haha). Should I try them again? 😀

    • Oh I don’t mind! Most people like The Infernal Devices the most, from what I’ve heard, although The Dark Artifices is definitely my favorite Cassandra Clare series. My best friend didn’t like the other TMI books that much either and also stopped reading them, so I get it hahaha. I would definitely recommend returning to them, because even if they don’t end up being amazing in the long run, at least you aren’t missing out on the hype AND you can read TDA/TID which you may like better!

  5. I have yet to read these or TMI or TID but I really want to! Several people keep suggesting I need to read TMI before any of the others, which I’m not too keen on. What’s your take on it? I’m thinking of trying TDI and then TDA but I need an expert opinion XD

    • Hmm well I’ve heard of someone starting with TDI but I’d only do that if you really can’t stand TMI because they introduce all this weird complicated shadow hunter world stuff which would be kinda confusing if you didn’t read them…And she mentions other characters and their families from the order the books are published in so it would be preferable read them that way. I would definitely not start off with TDA though because a lot of the TMI characters play big roles in it and it just wouldn’t be as good not knowing who they are.

    • ME NEITHER. I honestly think TDA has the best romance of all time lol (I’m obsessed) #jemma. I wanted to die when emma told Julian they can’t be together at the end of LM because she couldn’t tell him about the forbidden love thing. :((((((((((((((((((
