Heroes aren‘t always the ones who win. They‘re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don‘t give up. That‘s what makes them heroes.
a bit of reading early in the morning.
I have read The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and must say The Dark Artifices is my favorite of the Shadowhunter series. Everyone seems to show up in the story at one point or another and the characters are more endearing, equally sassy, funny and interesting. Even her new characters are more three dimensional.
I enjoyed hearing the audio version of this while reading along with my own physical book. It made it easier to get through the fight scenes since I have such a hard time picturing those and loved the narrator and his different voices for all. I did find some of this book dull but still love Cassandra Clare and can't wait to pick up the last book in this series and see how it ends!
Bella looks a little unsure, but I‘m ready to dive in to this one. I had a full day PD today, along with grades and evaluation evidence due, so I only had time to sneak in 50 pages at lunch. Finally sitting down to read - and looking forward to April break next week to finish the series!!
Just like with Clockwork Princess, I don‘t really want to read this 😂 but simultaneously once I start I know I won‘t be able to read it fast enough. And again, I know the eventual ending for the main characters...but I don‘t want to deal with all of the emotions and stress in between 😬
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! There were many segments that i felt were drawn out but overall there were many twists and turns and an ending that truly wrecked me! She took a direction on many of the plots that I never expected. Already have the next book and can‘t wait to read it!
Just started this book today. I really love Cassandra Clare's books. What are your guys opinion on it? I just got back into reading again after a few years. Do you guys have any suggestions? I am more into books like The Dark Artifices series.
@BookishMarginalia Loved, loved, loved this book. It ended on a very negative note. Very sad ending. My favorite character is sick and a death of a child.

I am glad that this generation has writers who use their talent to show right from wrong. Cassandra Clare you hit it out of the park. Proud to be a fan. No one should be forced to a registration just because they are different than white, middle income Protestant even if you are rogue fairies. And I loved how Kit thought it sounded too much like history. Predators should still be registered. #learnempathythroughhistory
I just finished Lord of Shadow and that ending left me feeling stunned and sad. 😭 there were several plots I really did not see coming and I enjoy when the story is not obvious. I‘m heading straight into the 3rd one !
Daaaaamn that ending tho!! Ok so I‘m definitely going to have to pick up Queen of Air and Darkness very soon. Definitely agree with the majority that this series is the author‘s strongest work, and I really like the direction she‘s taking everything thus far. There was a little too much time spent on characters I‘m not as invested in, but overall this was super fun and wild, and like I said, THAT ENDING. Great way to finish my reading year! 4/5 ⭐️
Whoo. I spent almost 8 hours today finishing up this audiobook! Even with listening to it at 2.75 speed, it took me a while to get through! Rereading it, I still enjoyed it just as much as the first time, maybe more as I was trying to figure out foreshadowing for both the ending and the 3rd book(which I'm hoping to make my 1st read of 2019!). I'm not sure I'll get any more reading done tonight because of the emotional toll!
Picked these lovelies up at Sam's. I can't resist the book aisle no matter were I go. And I wonder why I have no money in my checking account. 🤣💸
Last book of the year! This thing weighs like 12 pounds. But like most people, I thought the first book in this series was some of her best writing yet, so I‘m excited to get into the sequel. The final book just came out, too, so I gotta catch up (though I probably won‘t read that one for a little while). #nowreading
"Because he's three thousand times the human being you'll ever be," said Alec. "Now get out of here before I risk his life by waking him up so he can turn you into a garbage fire. Something that would match your personality."
"Afraid of what is new and different, and filled with hatred like ice. She may seem ridiculous, Zara Dearborn, but do not make the mistake of underestimating her and her cohort." He looked back at the window. "Hate like that can tear down the world."
Intended just to skim this before Queen of Air & Darkness comes out on Dec 4. I realized I didn't remember much other than ending 😭.Story just sucked me back in, so did a complete reread. Then I saw from other Litsy reviews what was on inside of book jacket. I still think Clary inventing a birth control rune is coolest thing ever. Especially since she only is able to invent new runes as needed. 😉
Thrilling continuation and left me wanting more! Can‘t wait for the next one!
Hello everyone, Yes I am back after some very hard weeks of reading Lord of shadows now this book was amazing in every way, we are talking writing style, characters, setting, and plot, BUT THE ENDING I WAS TORTURED I WAS SOBBING LIKE CRAZY. I have never cried this much on a book before this book was amazing!
@Mommamanzi I'm restocking my shelves after purging when the 1yr old (now 3.5) liked to see how many pages he could tear while I was in the bathroom. By far my favorite book this year is Lord of Shadows. I'm a YA junkie and new to Litsy. Trying to update my TBR as I go. Goodreads has 500+ and counting. 🙀🙀 @Whimsical.Curiosity down for another challenge?
What in the actual hell. How can you end a book like that. And there were so many characters to love. MY HEART. I need the next book NOW. 🗡
