I have decided to give the shadow-hunter books a second chance. I have gotten through The Infernal Devices and half of The Mortal Instruments. I haven’t gotten through the rest of Cassandra Clare’s books, but somehow I feel like I’m losing out on all of the hype. I love the show, but I have heard that many people love the books more because you get to know the characters. So I figured that I would read a book a month and bring myself back into this world. I do miss some of the characters that I fell in love with from the beginning.
