Simon telling Izzy the plot of Star Wars as a bedtime story remains my actual favorite thing. And I just love how Clary develops when she goes to spy on Team Evil! She's got a lot to grapple with there - good thing she's a quick study. #yafantasy #reread

Ok I am still listening to this book, but am SO tired of all the sappy teen romance crap that doesn‘t further the story at all!! The last couple books were annoying enough with the main couple. But now in this book there are THREE couples that I have to wade through all the sappy love scenes! I mean I know this book is aimed at teens, but COME ON!! All this kissy kissy, hearts fluttering stuff is not adding to the story at ALL!

When I first read this book, I mostly hated Clary. After rereading this, I hate Jace too. Kind of still love everyone else. My heart still breaks for Magnus and Alec! I still remember this series fondly!

@MoonWitch94 Thanks for this

1: I persist as much as possible and maybe switch to a audio book to see if any better.

2: Bookmarks, journal's, socks.

3: There's so many! Maze Runner, The Amber Spyglass, Divergent, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Shadowhunters and many more

Librarianaut I love the Shadowhunter world…it is always a fun place to visit… 13mo
kaysworld1 @Librarianaut I was devastated when it ended. Have you seen the series? Oh I loved it. 13mo
Librarianaut I enjoyed the TV show. I thought that the series with Jem and Will and Tessa (Clockwork Angel, etc) was being turned into a tv show, too. But I heard that pre-pandemic…perhaps it got scrapped 😩 13mo

Picked back up on my reread of this series and fell in love with it all over again. I‘ve never read the final book in the series, but I‘m going to reread/finish the prequel series before I get to that one. I loved this series before it was as popular as it became and it takes me back to simpler days #doublespin #april #seriesread2021

I thought this series was supposed to improve after the first three books? I am finding them quite boring, and speed up the reading speed to get through it quicker. Do I need to read these to continue onto the next series?

My opinion (and star rating) have moved back up slightly, but not enough. I‘d put his one on par with City of Bones and City of Glass; there were some things I liked, but overall still not my favorite. https://amysbookreviews.com/2020/07/23/i-got-bored-and-decided-to-binge-the-enti...

Clary is once again racing to save Jace. But, the themes were too similar to the earlier novel, and it felt like a repeat of what I‘d just read in the previous novel. The relationship filler also needed to be cut back. Too many stories were told within the pages of this book. I want more world-building, background, and story. #youngadult #urbanfantasy

This is the 5th book in The Mortal Instruments series & it was rather lack luster despite some overdramatic moments. So in this one Clary's real brother Jonathan/Sebastian, which ever name he's going by, is working on raising Lilith. Also he found a way to join himself with Jace, so if one of them dies so does the other.

Some #audiopuzzling this morning while I finished my #reread of this! The epilogue still gets me even though I know what happens in the future. This isn‘t my favourite book of the series but very enjoyable nevertheless. Especially after things start to happen. #shadowhunterchronicles

My original review was “so-so”, and with this re-read I have to go with “pick!” I stand by my point where I wrote originally “repititive at times”, but I gotta say: this re-read was worth it!

Clary‘s determined to save Jace. And some might again think it‘s disgusting in some scenes. But if we were to think Sebastian as a demon and not a human, it‘s not surprising that he had such thoughts. #paranormalromance #audiobook

Note to self: don‘t take three years between books 4 and 5 in a series! Especially when there are only 6 books. That being said, I think I enjoyed this one the most so far, despite being a little lost at the beginning. Sh*t got real with Jace and Clary, as well as some of the other couples too. The final battle has been well and properly set up, so I‘ll definitely finish this #seriesread in 2019.

The book started off slow for me. I kind of find it annoying that Clary jumps into things without thinking them through. That being said, the book really started to pick up towards the middle end. There were so many references to TID which I loved. Also, Magnus reminded me a bit of Dionysus from Percy Jackson when he kept saying Simon's name wrong 😂 Can't wait to read the next and last book in this series!

BooknerdsLife Hahaa Clary always seems annoying to me 😂 but I adore Jace & love Magnus & Alec too much! Love the last book so much!!🤗💙 4y

I've been really busy with tests, but I finally got some time to read. Honestly, I'm not really enjoying this book as much as the others. Personally, I find Clary's character to be a bit annoying at times. I really love the other characters in this series though, and people have told me the book gets better.
Hopefully I'll have time to finish this book soon, and Happy Easter 🤗

I‘m starting to like Sebastian? The bad guy who‘s bad not because he wants to but because he has to, and because he doesn‘t know any other way. Too bad there‘s no happy ending for him. (I couldn‘t stop myself from checking what happens to him at the end😅)

Shadowhunters starts again next week—so I am rushing to rewatch seasons 1 and 2 and finally finish TMI books. I can‘t believe I forgot how horrible these first few episodes were 😆 But can Alberto bring back the glasses because he‘s so cute

TheLibrarian The first few episodes were pretty bad but better than the movie. I‘m excited for the show to start back up. 5y

I really enjoyed the development of Isabelle. I find her to be the most interesting character and am always fascinated by her relationships with everyone else. I‘m also a really big fan of the narrator, Molly Quinn.

Just starting this after finishing book 4 on my way home from work. It‘s starting to feel like a bit of a slog, mostly because of these two characters. Open communication, people! Make all our lives easier! It‘s like being irritating is becoming a major plot device 🙄😂. If I‘d only just let myself bail. I have permanent book FOMO though and never can 🤦🏻‍♀️. Fingers crossed that it picks up! 🤞🏻

ofclumsywords I thought the same thing when reading this series. But the last book makes up for it. I think that one is the best out of them all. 5y
JennAndrew @Ofclumsywords that‘s exactly what I needed to hear to motivate me, thank you! I hoped it might be the case. 👍🏻 5y

💔 #thisremindsmeof break ups, but more specifically Alec and Magnus‘ break up. Which is the one break up I had read that completely shattered my heart. They have always been the couple I rooted for most in this series and seeing them go through it was horrible.

*Sigh* how to rate this book? It‘s somewhere b/t a pick and so-so. It also doesn‘t help that I didn‘t finish it during my library check out and I had to go back on the hold list so it feels like I‘ve been reading this book forever! I love the Shadowhunter world & the characters, but sometimes the plot isn‘t holding my attention, or I feel like it‘s going around in circles. I dunno, maybe it‘s just me. We‘ll see how it all gets resolved!
