Do Real-Life People Know About Your Blog?



Have you ever told your family or friends about your blog?


I haven’t. In all honesty, I’ve considered it for the past few weeks. It would be nice to talk to my friends about my blog and what I do – especially how fun it is. I might even convince them to make one, too. I’m sure my other bibliophile friends would consider it. But there’s this feeling about other people I know finding out about my blog and having the freedom to visit it anytime is just... scary.

A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.

As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

Do You Read More than One Book at a Time?


Do you read two or more books at the same time?


Ever since around two or so years ago, I’ve come accustomed to reading two books at the same time – one on my phone, and another one with a physical copy. See, I didn’t think it’d work out at first since I’d most possibly get the stories mixed up with one another. But eventually, it’s become such a habit of mine that I’m now doing it all the time.

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

A Late Responder


There’s one thing that incredibly frustrates me when it comes to social media that’s connected to MWH – I almost always respond late.

I mean, it’s not like I don’t want to talk to you guys. I do, I really do. I even hate myself whenever I check my Twitter notifications and find out that I haven’t replied to a day-old mention. But sometimes, I just... can’t help it.
