I read my first Cassie Clare book in January of 2016, and it’s literally taken be more than 18 months to finish 4 of her books. What am I doing with my life? I know I love her writing, and will totally enjoy each and every book of her’s, but I just keep putting it off. I think it’s mainly because my local bookstores don’t have all the books in the series.
Anyways, I heard that the best way to read the Shadow Hunter Chronicles (The Mortal Instruments series ‘TMI’, The Infernal Devices trilogy ‘TID’, The Dark Artifices series ‘TDA’, and a couple other side books), is to just go by the publication order. And that’s exactly what I’ve done (hence me reviewing the first book in the Infernal Devices series.)
(I recommend you read City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – and then read my review of it- before you read my review of Clockwork Angel, because I refer to a lot of TMI’s characters here.)
