If you know me, you know I am a HUGE sucker for Asian Fantasy. Especially if it’s Japanese. And there’s so few of them! This had everything I love about Japanese fantasy – oni, yokai, kitsune, miko, Shinto shrines, and plenty of glorious Japanese culture. (Which I am positively obsessed with.) That was definitely my favorite part of this book! It was super easy to picture everything – you know how some books tell you they’re in a certain country/place, […]

This one wasn’t quite as awesome as the first book, but I still enjoyed it! The premise is very interesting, and the Mazikin were totally creepy! I am sad that it took place in the real world instead of in hell, like the last book. I think that’s what made it a bit less interesting, honestly. In the first book, the world was painted so vividly, and it was such a gritty and interesting setting that I couldn’t help but […]

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 […]
