Finished this while enjoying and #audiowalk after work today. It looks gross out, but there was sun! These books have so much teen angst and drama, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Crazeedi I love the corner porches!! I can imagine walking out of my bedroom and sitting on rmth one on second floor, outside yet provate 2w
Johanna414 @Crazeedi that is exactly what I do! My husband screened it in this summer, and it‘s soooooo nice to sit out there after the kids go to sleep in the evenings. I can‘t wait for it to warm up enough to start up again! 2w
Crazeedi @Johanna414 excuse my spelling mistakes, btw(see above, lol). I'm very jealous of your cozy porch off your room, I've always dreamed of a place like that, getting me coffee and opening the door from my room and settling in to smell the fresh morning air and read!!❤ enjoy this summer!! 2w

Johanna414 @Crazeedi I may or may not be considering putting a coffee maker out there so I don‘t even have to go downstairs first 😂😂😂 2w
Crazeedi @Johanna414 oh what an excellent idea, I'd definitely do that! Or do like me, my hubby brings my coffee to me in the morning! 2w

I really should be sleeping right now, if my exhaustion this past week is any indication... but I didn‘t get a minute to myself today so I‘m taking a little time for some #audiocrochet

Ok. I please need someone to geek out on me.
I need to talk #CassandraClare reading order.

I know her books are like one big series, but are also broken up into smaller series within that. Should I just read the the Shadowhunter Chronicles all in order, or could I pick and choose? Does it matter? Thinking of starting Dark Artifacts in Feb or March. Should I? Is there anything I didn't ask but should?

Please & Thank you. 💙

jen_the_scribe I've only read The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, and book 1 of The Dark Artifices. Cassandra Clare talked about this on Instagram a while back. She said you don't have to read the series' in any particular order, but you should stick to book order. 4w
SmartSassery @jen_the_scribe thank you very much! 4w
That-Bookish-Hiker I took a break after book 3 of TMI then read the Infernal Devices and went back to TMI after that. That helped me a lot and filled in the story. And I‘ve seen reading orders posted on the owlcrate Facebook page. Here is a link that shows different reading orders. https://rivetedlit.com/2018/08/27/cassandra-clare-books-in-order/ 4w

LokiDokey I was also confused about what to do. I will be reading this series here in the next month or so. I am going to do all the mortal instruments books first then the bane Chronicles and takes from Shadow Hunter academy. I am then going to do the infernal devices, then the dark artifacts and then finally the last hours series. 4w
LokiDokey @That-Bookish-Hiker I just checked out the link and that's super cool and now I am rethinking my reading order lol 4w
SmartSassery @That-Bookish-Hiker There are so many preferred reading orders! It reminds me of Terry Brooks books. I'm excited, I want to hear all of them. 😉 The old switch-a-roo. I like it. I often have several books going at a time but I had not thought to skip around within the series. 4w
SmartSassery @LokiDokey You've got a solid plan of attack. I like that. That's where I'm trying to be. I didn't mean to make you question your method. 😂 4w
ReaperOfTerrasen I just finished the main Mortal Instruments series, 1-6. I think finishing the original series is a good place to start. After that, me personally I tend to do sequels before prequels, and just in the order they were released for me. 3w
SmartSassery @ReaperOfTerrasen I uses to be like that but I'm now rereading the Shannara books in Brooks suggested order. I'm really digging it. So now I search all the order recommendations before I start a series. lol Thank you very much for your suggestions. 3w

I enjoyed this shadowhunters story more as it went on - picked up the action towards the end. I enjoyed getting to know Emma and the other characters. Looking forward to the next one in the series.

So last time I read two shadowhunter books in a row I got a bit of shadowhunter fatigue. BUT I then discovered James Marsters narrates the next after this in this series, now I need to read this one because I want to listen to SPIKE!!! 😂 Got the audiobook on reserve from the library so have two weeks to get through the first.. p.s. sorry for the shadowhunters spamming - I‘ll read something different soon!

This book left me with mixed feelings. The first half of the book dragged on and on for me and the whole Emma and Jules keeping secrets from each other got annoying really quick. Once the second half got started I was intrigued and had to finish it. Not a bad read and I will pick up the next one soon. :)

I read Cassandra Clare's first series. I decided to read it since I wanted to find out what happened after her first series.
Summary: The main focus is, Emma tries to find out the killer that killed her parents. Julian and Emma try to figure the cases, without getting help/caught by the clave. They go through phases where their family/friendship are at risk for answers.

Now it‘s finally summer I can read more (even if it is raining at the moment). I started Lady Midnight and it seems really good so far and Julian is one of my new favourite characters. I can‘t wait to start the next one already even though I am getting a bit ahead of myself.

The Dark Artifices welcomes the third Shadowhunter series. The storyline of Mark Blackthorn coming back from the being taken by the faeries and the Hunt after five years brings new blood to the story as well as we learn how characters from prior books are fairing. I would have preferred to not end with the same old longing being thrown in to some forbidden zone, but have come to terms that this is the author‘s formula.

I‘ve been seeing Cassandra Clare‘s books pop up on Litsy the past few weeks—I haven‘t read her books in years and I never got to The Dark Artifices—and when I wandered into my local library today they somehow had all three books in the trilogy available! It had to be a sign. Looks like I‘m tackling these big books over the next few weeks! 📚

My new favorite book in the Shadowhunter Chronicles.

Clare‘s writing has evolved since TMI; she does a great job at introducing new characters and weaving their individual stories into a more complex narrative.

Definitely character-driven, with lots of romance; but never fear: fans of the Shadowhunter universe will still get mystery, action, and everything else they love about this world.

I should have read this earlier! I had forgotten how much of a guilty pleasure the Shadowhunter world is for me 😂. Clare's writing feels much improved on this one. I love all the new characters and Julian is fast becoming a favorite. Plus I really missed Jem ❤️

My favorite of the Shadowhunter books so far. The mystery aspect was a pleasant addition to the story but what I loved most is the relationship between the Blackthorn siblings. Julian is just so precious he deserves the world. And it was interesting to see a Shadowhunter with autism and another with schizophrenia, looking forward to seeing where this goes.

LauraWeasley Yay, so glad you loved it! The Blackthorns are seriously the best - and Julian is definitely worthy of the title #BookBoyfriend, in my opinion. 😋 I just love him. ❤️ Also, the diversity is one of my favorite things about Cassie's books, I especially love Ty's character. 13mo
butterbeerheist @LauraWeasley Julian is the best! Definitely prefer him over the Herondale boys. And whenever Ty appears I just want to protect him (and I read a spoiler about a particular thing that happens that I feel will destroy him☹️). Have you finished reading Queen of Air and Darkness? 13mo
LauraWeasley @butterbeerheist I do love the Herondales, but I definitely have a soft spot for Julian, too. 😁 And I totally understand the feeling of wanting to protect Ty - he is just too precious. But you're right, it's not going to be easy for him and the other Blackthorns. 😥 I finished QoAaD on Sunday - it was soooo good! I don't want to spoil you, but I'm really satisfied with the ending. 13mo
butterbeerheist @LauraWeasley great! Now I‘m even more excited.😋 (edited) 13mo
LauraWeasley @butterbeerheist You should be! 😁 I can't wait to see what you think! 13mo

Every time I read anything in the Shadowhunters universe I realize how screwed up that world actually is. They need to get with the times and accept the world of technology! Also equal rights! That being said I still love the universe and everything that Cassandra Clare writes. She weaves the story in such a way that amazes me each and every time. She is a fantastic writer and I always enjoy going back to the Shadowhunter world!
