I just finished my reread of Lord of Shadows fifteen minutes ago and I scurried to get out the laptop because everything is so fresh in my mind. People ask me all the time what my ultimate favorite book is and honestly I can read all the big classics and the “must read before you die” books but honestly I think these books, this series, the sub-series and the whole chronicles collection are my favorite. As I’m rereading The Dark Artifices, I am falling in love with this fictional world […]

“As long as there is love and memory, there is no true death.” ― Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight 
Just last week I ordered the paperback box set of The Dark Artifices. Sure, I do already have a hardcover first edition of Queen of Air and Darkness but I read Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows as library books because I knew when the time came I would buy the paperback editions because i just love the spine art they make together and I already have the paperback box sets for The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices and I would really like it if all my books matched formats. Anyway, […]
I lent this book from my library a while back because I noticed my older sister reading it and I thought it was very strange since I’d literally never see her read ever!

I believe it was during Clockwork Reader’s bookshelf tour that I first saw Shame Is an Ocean I Swim Across. I was looking for another poetry book but I’d like to say that when I was walking around at Chapters I did not bring this one home because of how beautiful the cover is for this edition.  Although! I did read the synopsis and the first poem before I bought it and was genuinely interested! I don’t mind having this one on my shelf though… I wish I wasn’t such […]
The Darkest Minds was a series I had never even heard of until the day I was bored and decided to watch that god awful movie adaptation where Amandla Stenberg is put into clothes four times smaller than her size. That day still bring me shivers at night. Although I thought the idea of the movie was really interesting and I felt like they had just played it wrong on screen. I did some research and found a trilogy? I had no idea at all these books existed and I was […]
