  1. I looked through you website and saw nothing on the mortal instruments series. I know your currently reading clockwork princess (which is one of my absolute favs) and if you like the infernal devices you will love the mortal instruments too! Cassandra Clare has tons of books coming out in the next few years all about the shadowhunters and omg just you need to read them


    1. I’ve actually read the first 3 books of TMI, I just read them before I started blogging. I’m toying with the idea of finishing the series, especially since Clare is releasing two more interlocking series in this universe. (The fact that Will, Jem and Tessa feature in these books are a strong positive force in this.) What’s holding me back is that I don’t remember much of TMI, except for the fact that I found most of the characters rather annoying. I don’t even think I had a favourite character in that series.

      But…your enthusiasm makes me consider reading them again. 🙂
