Not gonna lie, I very nearly marked this as DNF about 200 pages through. I really should have. I was going to give myself another 40 pages, and by then I was so close to the end I just forced myself to finish the rest. Plus, I had heard a lot of people saying that the last half is worth it…NOT. It was the same dull, drab story all the way through for me. I think the real issue here […]

Sadly, I was disappointed in this one. I’m having trouble forming those disappointments into exact sentences, but it just left me with an overall feeling of…meh. The idea of it sounds awesome – a drug that brings you back from death? Sounds like a thrilling, gripping read, right? Wrong. It was more of a contemporary with a sci-fi twist. I was expecting some deathly encounters involving Daisy – after all, it says she’s died a whopping FIVE times. The only death […]

Remember what I said about CoFA? How the plot was more of teen angst and relationship drama than danger and action? Well, the same goes for CoLS, except throw in a little sexual tension. That seemed to be all that the first half of the book was about. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Mortal Instruments. Still do. But it has gone downhill since City of Glass. I still enjoyed this book, but found myself a bit bored at […]

This review is a lot harder to write than the previous three. I will always love the world of the Shadowhunters, but in a way, I felt like this series would have been perfect if it could have just been left as a trilogy. Don’t get me wrong, I still thoroughly enjoyed CoFA. Although, I think I enjoyed it more the first time I read it. The second time through, it was much more obvious that there wasn’t much of […]

Did I mention I love this series? Being the second time through, I’m amazed it can still affect me like it does. The world of the Mortal Instruments is SO ADDICTING. When I wasn’t reading it, I wanted to be. And it’s the kind of book that you just can’t help but think about – it’s been the main thing occupying my thoughts this past week. I’ve been reading the series consecutively, not reading anything else in between to break […]

Did I mention I love this series? It’s so incredibly addicting and sticks with you long after you’ve read the book. The world of the Mortal Instruments is beautifully and realistically painted, magical and enchanting – even the second time around, I’m engrossed in the series! The stakes are even higher in this one with Valentine and his terrifying and sinister agenda. But is it really a surprise? He does evil so well! He’s so fanatical about his beliefs it’s […]
