shadowhunters

So, if you’re like me and just never have been interested in owning a copy of The Mortal Instruments (now called Shadowhunters) by Cassie Clare because of how… er… not-so-great the old covers were – never fear! Because let me tell you people, The Mortal Instruments got a makeover AND THEY ARE JUST ASDFGHJFDSKFBKSDNDSJF. Here’s a few to feast your eyes on.   I adore them, I really do. In fact, I might just go and grab a set of these new shiny […]

I read the first book in the series, These Broken Stars, some time ago – long enough that I don’t remember details, but I do remember parts of the plot and also that I was impressed. I will admit that I fully believe that some of the love for this book was influenced by the massive hype surrounding TBS at the time. However, I did also love the book itself: I was a fan of the writing, the mindfuckery (you can wake me up for […]

2016resolutions

It’s 2016! (Well… it has been for a whole week now but shhhhhhh let’s forget how delayed this post is.) I’m one of those people who are super duper enthusiastic at the start of each year, have everything organised and planned and am already falling behind in homework and life in general the first week in. I’m one of those people who buy gazillions of planners and diaries at the start of the year and never touch a single one of them […]

Last year in January (2015) I made a plan to read one short story per month from this anthology/collection/book-thingy (seeing as there were 12 stories and I thought that would be cool (it’s really not)) And, like most of my other plans, it totally failed. So here I am in January 2016 reading my way through the last bunch of stories all in one go because damn, this book has been sitting on my bedside table for long enough. Anyway, I ended […]
