Clary‘s determined to save Jace. And some might again think it‘s disgusting in some scenes. But if we were to think Sebastian as a demon and not a human, it‘s not surprising that he had such thoughts. #paranormalromance #audiobook

Note to self: don‘t take three years between books 4 and 5 in a series! Especially when there are only 6 books. That being said, I think I enjoyed this one the most so far, despite being a little lost at the beginning. Sh*t got real with Jace and Clary, as well as some of the other couples too. The final battle has been well and properly set up, so I‘ll definitely finish this #seriesread in 2019.

TheSpineView I have started this but not finished it! I need to get moving!😊 7mo

Another great read. Love the characters and the series. I don't want to start the next book, as it means only one thing.....the end. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

The book started off slow for me. I kind of find it annoying that Clary jumps into things without thinking them through. That being said, the book really started to pick up towards the middle end. There were so many references to TID which I loved. Also, Magnus reminded me a bit of Dionysus from Percy Jackson when he kept saying Simon's name wrong 😂 Can't wait to read the next and last book in this series!

BooknerdsLife Hahaa Clary always seems annoying to me 😂 but I adore Jace & love Magnus & Alec too much! Love the last book so much!!🤗💙 7mo

I've been really busy with tests, but I finally got some time to read. Honestly, I'm not really enjoying this book as much as the others. Personally, I find Clary's character to be a bit annoying at times. I really love the other characters in this series though, and people have told me the book gets better.
Hopefully I'll have time to finish this book soon, and Happy Easter 🤗

I‘m starting to like Sebastian? The bad guy who‘s bad not because he wants to but because he has to, and because he doesn‘t know any other way. Too bad there‘s no happy ending for him. (I couldn‘t stop myself from checking what happens to him at the end😅)

Shadowhunters starts again next week—so I am rushing to rewatch seasons 1 and 2 and finally finish TMI books. I can‘t believe I forgot how horrible these first few episodes were 😆 But can Alberto bring back the glasses because he‘s so cute

TheLibrarian The first few episodes were pretty bad but better than the movie. I‘m excited for the show to start back up. 2y

Just starting this after finishing book 4 on my way home from work. It‘s starting to feel like a bit of a slog, mostly because of these two characters. Open communication, people! Make all our lives easier! It‘s like being irritating is becoming a major plot device 🙄😂. If I‘d only just let myself bail. I have permanent book FOMO though and never can 🤦🏻‍♀️. Fingers crossed that it picks up! 🤞🏻

ofclumsywords I thought the same thing when reading this series. But the last book makes up for it. I think that one is the best out of them all. 2y
JennAndrew @Ofclumsywords that‘s exactly what I needed to hear to motivate me, thank you! I hoped it might be the case. 👍🏻 2y

💔 #thisremindsmeof break ups, but more specifically Alec and Magnus‘ break up. Which is the one break up I had read that completely shattered my heart. They have always been the couple I rooted for most in this series and seeing them go through it was horrible.

*Sigh* how to rate this book? It‘s somewhere b/t a pick and so-so. It also doesn‘t help that I didn‘t finish it during my library check out and I had to go back on the hold list so it feels like I‘ve been reading this book forever! I love the Shadowhunter world & the characters, but sometimes the plot isn‘t holding my attention, or I feel like it‘s going around in circles. I dunno, maybe it‘s just me. We‘ll see how it all gets resolved!

✨I haven't been posting much. I haven't been doing much of anything lately, including reading.. I've kind of gotten into a funk and I'm not sure I know how to get out of this one.

Bostonmomx2 I‘ve been in the same boat. I had a major life event happen a month ago that very literally capped off a decade of shit. It was the final push I needed to get myself into counseling. It‘s hard and it sucks but it‘s much needed. I do hope you‘re feeling better soon. 2y
BeckyK Counselling is amazing and so beneficial. Take time to care for yourself. Go for a walk, colour in, read, watch silly films and hug someone dear. It will pass and you will have amazing, good and not to good days, but that‘s ok. There‘s a community here filled with wonderful, sensitive and empathetic people. You‘re never alone. Sending lots of well wishes and happy thoughts xx 2y
abbsinwonderland @Bostonmomx2 @Beckykearns thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate it. I'm not a believer in counseling having been in and out of it since I was five. I lost my grandpa 10/14/14 and my brother 10/25/09, so this month just isn't good for me. I've been watching Once Upon A Time though and walking my dog daily to help. Hopefully soon it passes. 💜 2y

Cailey_Mac That was me for a few months during our "summer"; which was depressing since the weather really didn't cooperate, which put me in a funk. Sometimes just doing a small activity you enjoy, like painting your nails, or just standing outside in complete silence helps. What got me back into reading was some horror novels, easy reads that keep you WANTING to read. Maybe try that! 2y

It's been a while since I last visited this world and I had to look at the last books wiki to remind myself what happened.

I've also realized I've been able to read a lot more this year because I've been reading what I want to rather than what this book club or group of people is reading. I still read along on occasion but as a second book.

It's been four weeks since my last post! Due to Hurricane María, signals here have been truly weak. It is now that I'm starting to get some signal around places. Now, for the review: it's repetitive and slow at a various times, but I find myself still wanting to know more through it all.

Once again, we find ourselves, in Puerto Rico, awaiting for the passing of yet another hurricane; María. This one's eye is expected to pass directly over the island. Right now, I'm just reviewing my Modern Architecture notes and choosing which books to pass the hurricane with.

Damn, does Cassandra Clare know how to do a cliffhanger! As with all the other TMI books, this was fun and crazy and had a number of holy shit moments. Also a few sad moments, one of which I reeeeeeally hope gets fixed in book 6. There is one small arc in here that I didn't really care about and felt superfluous, but overall another great entry in the Shadowhunters universe. 4/5 ⭐️

I read some reviews prior to reading this that were quite critical & saying not as good as previous books.

Whilst I agree the book wasn't as good as the last 4, I still thoroughly enjoyed the book & delving into this world. I love all the characters, and we're getting to see into the psyche of some of the characters more.

“I saw you fall,” Alec said quietly. He bent down and kissed Magnus lightly on the mouth, not wanting to hurt him. “I thought you were dead.” Magnus smiled crookedly. “What, from that scratch?” He glanced down at the reddening jacket in Alec‘s hand. “Okay, a deep scratch. Like, from a really, really big cat.”
