The Red Scrolls of Magic
The Red Scrolls of Magic | Cassandra Clare, Wesley Chu
From #1 New York Times bestseller Cassandra Clare and award-winner Wesley Chu comes the first book in a new series that follows High Warlock Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood as they tour the world after the Mortal War. The Red Scrolls of Magic is a Shadowhunters novel. All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacationa lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke. Now Magnus and Alec must race across Europe to track down the Crimson Hand and its elusive new leader before the cult can cause any more damage. As if it wasnt bad enough that their romantic getaway has been sidetracked, demons are now dogging their every step, and it is becoming harder to tell friend from foe. As their quest for answers becomes increasingly dire, Magnus and Alec will have to trust each other more than evereven if it means revealing the secrets theyve both been keeping.

I'm not always a fan of Clare's work for some reason, but this one was a fun read. I haven't read all of this series, but I knew enough from reading the Mortal Instruments books to follow along. The action and characterization news fun and held my interest, and the cocky dialogue never disappointed. #Fantasy #LGBTQ

My first finish for #Roll100! I might not get to my second roll this month because I'm waiting a library hold.

PuddleJumper Library holds are fun! I've had one on hold since September 🤣 5mo
Kenyazero @PuddleJumper ha, yeah, they can take a while if they're popular or new (especially if they're popular AND new!)! What book have you been on such a long wait for? 5mo
PuddleJumper @Kenyazero I wanted it for Halloween. I just went into my account to check on it and they are ordering the book but not bought it yet 🤣🤣🤣 5mo
Kenyazero @PuddleJumper oh dang! Ha I'm glad they're ordering it, but that sounds like an uncertain wait now! 😂 Mooncakes is pretty fun, though. I think it'll be worth the wait. 5mo
PuddleJumper @Kenyazero It's great to see my local libraries getting more diverse books in. It wasn't long ago that it was all major crime fiction and Daniella Steel 🤣 Got plenty of books to keep me busy while I wait! 5mo

I'm always reading many books at once, but here are the 3 I'm most actively reading this weekend! One manga, one audiobook, and one ebook. Each of these are part of my #JoyousJanuary goals (I need to revise my Heart Break Bakery goal because I reached it before the challenge started). The Red Scrolls of Magic is also one of my #Roll100 picks.

I started reading the Shadowhunter series after I watched the TV series in 2019, I have enjoyed every single book. This one is about one of my favorite characters Magnus Bane (Warlock) and Alec Lightwood (Shadowhunter)The author truly made the characters vulnerable, strong with weaknesses and very believable. It is one of the best novels that describes the inner turmoil of finding your true self. A great read for readers with an open mind.

I almost forgot to post my #Roll100 books for January! My list is made entirely of audiobooks I've marked as to-read on Libby. I'm at least going to read one of this month's rolled books this month.
(Also, @PuddleJumper I love these dice and that you name your sets! Mine are all just tossed in a dice bag together so I never use any of my complete sets...)

PuddleJumper Wahoo! Looks great! 6mo
PuddleJumper I try to keep mine in sets. One of the sites I buy from names the sets all things to do with Norse mythology which is just awesome. It's one of my favourite dice places 6mo
Kenyazero @PuddleJumper Thatsy super cool! 6mo

I loved being back in the world of the shadow hunters & I absolutely love Magnus character, so I was excited to read this story which didn't disappoint. I enjoyed being swept up in Magnus & Alec's developing relationshp which showed the hesitant & sometimes insecure nature of first love & learning to trust in each other and & the ability to not just love but be loved

I just loved this book which made me smile & gave me lots of warm fuzzy feelings

I LOVED THIS!

Magnus and Alec are such a cute couple and it was great to see their relationship develop in this book.
And not too long to wait for the second book of The Eldest Curses 🥰

But do I get the special edition with extra stories? because I like the non-special covers better (like this one)... tough decisions

#ReadYourSign #Aries
This fits Prompt 1 - published between March 21st and April 19th
and Prompt 8 - Spirit colour in the title

#ReadYourSign week one photo challenge is my TBR.
I pledged to read 3 books (I am also doing a buddy read of volume 4 of Les Mis alongside this month) and this is a tentative list of books that fit some of the #Aries prompts!

I will definitely be reading Dragon down under as it is one of this months #PLC books, and I want to read outlander, but I‘m scared it‘s too much of a chunkster!

I know I don't normally do paperback unless they were never in hardcover, but they changed the cover for the Clare book and this is so much better than the hard cover.

I have a tendency to rush through books on first reads because I want to know what happens. Re-reads I slowly savor the story.

Love when author's fill in bits that happen off page. Magnus & Alec have always been part of big cast but here they're main characters. You see their doubts & fears that lead to the infamous Page 511 in City of Lost Souls. You also see the Beginnings of their Epic Love Story. 📚

Who needs real life? This right here is why I read Fantasy. "Magnus conjured up a chilled bottle of Pol Roger and placed it on the counter. He raised two glasses and smiled as they filled on their own, leaving the cork intact in the bottle even as the level of champagne lowered." ??

One of my all-time favorite couples. They decide to go to Europe for a romantic retreat, but every romantic moment is ruined by demons. I love Magnus Bane and I am so happy that Alex and he are finally the main characters and not just part of the supporting cast.

It was great to see Magnus and Alec get their own book. The mix of darkness (the cult) and light (the glib wit) didn‘t always work for me and the villain was hella obvious, but in all I thought it was a good summer read - somewhere between a so so and a pick.

loved this so much. Alec and Magnus have always been my favourite couple from the Shadowhunters books. It was brilliant to have a book of just them. This is set during the mortal instruments series so did confuse me for a moment as I've read the later ones but it does explain a few incidents more deeply. The story itself was full of drama and romance. The detail as always was well written and the ending was perfect. I look forward to the next one

Cassandra Clare is SUCH a storyteller. After indulging in the series finale of the Shadowhunters television series, I was definitely in the mood for more Alec and Magnus, and this fabulous adventure novel, which Clare co-wrote with Wesley Chu, satisfied that craving. The couple is so sweet, and I loved the way the book dovetailed with the rest of Clare's work. (continued in comments)

Have you read this novel? How are you dealing with the end of Shadowhunters? (And, somewhat related, what did you think of the tv series?)

This might be the raciest #ya book I've ever read. Not complaining! I thoroughly enjoyed it even though it reads like fanfic, and it certainly helped satisfy my #Malec withdrawal. This is basically what I wanted the #Shadowhunters tv series to be: Alec & Magnus going on adventures, getting into trouble, saving each other, and most importantly being in love. Great read for #PrideMonth too. #weneeddiversebooks #teachersoflitsy #summervacation

“He stood in the middle of his Paris apartment with the man he loved, and felt very alone.” That moment when reading when you get to a line that resonates and takes you away into your own thoughts for a while. I‘ve had a divorce thrown at me after 25 years of marriage and I‘ve spent much of it feeling like that quote - without the benefit of a Paris apartment. Perhaps I will be better off after all...
