The Mortal Instruments

Hi everyone!

So, I finished the last book of the Mortal Instruments series called Heavenly Fire. The series was written by Cassandra Clare. The series comprises 6 books; City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Lost Souls, City of Fallen Angels and finally City of Heavenly Fire. I will not talk about all of the books, simply because this post would be way too long. I will talk about what I like in the last book because I finished it recently and I will also talk about my favorite book in the series. From this point on, there might be some spoilers, so SPOILER ALERT for those who have not read the series.

I will start by saying that my favorite part of the last book (City of Heavenly Fire) was when Sebastian dies and “turns” good for a little while. I thought it was a great moment. We’ve seen the negative side of Sebastian for so long that it was nice to see him being not evil for once. I was very much happy that Magnus and Alec reunited. They are one of my favorite couples. I was very sad when I found out that Jordan died. I loved Jordan and his relationship with Maya.

Now, my favorite book of the whole series is probably the third one, which is called City of Glass. I absolutely loved the Clary and Jace moments in this book. Even though, they do have some hurdles to overcome in the book following City of Glass, I felt like City of Glass was when they finally came together. I also love how everyone comes together; the downworldlers and the Shadowhunters, Alec and Magnus, Jace and Clary.  I mean in my opinion the series could have ended there and I would have been happy. Although, I was sad that Max died, I liked him and would have loved to see him in the other books.

For those who read the series, what were your favorite parts? What book did you like the most? Let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂

Lots of love

Jet Black Heart

Hey everyone! I haven’t done a music post in such a long time. Does anyone know the band 5 Seconds of Summer? This post is about their song Jet Black Heart. I love this song, every time I listen to it I get chills. Mostly because it hits home for me. My ultimate favourite line is “Everybody’s got their demons / Even wide awake or dreaming”. Every time I hear this line, I’m like “Oh yeah, that’s right everyone is dealing with something,” it reminds me that I’m not alone. Here is the music video for the song. 

 

What song do you relate to the most? Let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂

Zodiac

Hey guys!

So as I’ve mentioned in a previous post called A Brand New Year, I got several books. One of them was Zodiac by Romina Russell. I saw this book last January when I was browsing Chapters one day. It caught my eye and since I had time to spare I sat down and started reading it. One year later, I finally got it and finished it. For those who haven’t read the book the story is about a sixteen year old named Rhoma (Rho) Grace. She is from house Cancer. Legend says that there used to be a thirteenth house. What if that house really existed and is coming back and it is seeking revenge? What will happen? Will people believe and trust Rho? That was somewhat terrible synopsis. I’m not very good at doing those without spoiling anything.

Anyway, I loved this story because it was cool to imagine how the Zodiac would work and its story, where it came from and how it was formed. It was interesting reading more about that even if a lot of it is fiction.  However, I was surprised by the ending. I was expecting something different. I encourage that you read it.  This is not my best book review. I’m a little rusty on those :P. I will be doing a review of the Mortal Instruments, hopefully that one will be better.

Have you read a book recently? If so which one? Let me know by commenting on this post. 🙂

Lots of love,

Lia
