ShadowhuntersLogo-TwitterHeader-1440x480

 

I picked this theme (not because of the TV show) but because the newest addition to this world is coming out the 23rd! I cannot wait to read it. Eeeeew! This is a book series which is very complicated, long, and was written/published out of order! So for more information on that. You can read in the second message if you're interested in the book series.

Okay!

 

So this story is very confusing as it began as a trilogy.

mortal-instruments.jpg

 

Then it became so. much. more.

 

I began reading when the third book came out. Which is saying something because now there are 10 published books, the 11th coming in a couple days, 2 companion books (there are more, but these two are written by/with the author), and 7 more planned books that have titles and tentative dates. Making this entire world 20 books long with no end in sight.

 

"These works are set in a universe where fairy tales and mythologies, both pagan and Judeo-Christian, are true with its figures existing alongside the mundanes (normal humans). A race of humans who possess angel blood, the Nephilim or Shadowhunters, is organized to patrol the Shadow World and prevent demons as well as Downworlders, including warlocksfaerieswerewolves, and vampires from attacking the mundanes. There is an uneasy peace, a treaty known as The Accords, between the governing body of the Nephilim, known as the Clave, and the Downworlders, not all of whom want peace or respect the Clave's authority." - The about on the Wiki page.

 

What's great is that, like Game of Thrones, you really follow the families of these nephilim instead of the characters. Characters for sure, but when the original trilogy takes place ~2007 New York and then the prequel trilogy takes place in Victorian Era London... the thread throughout is the Family Names.

 

Which brings me to the confusing part of this series. There is a chronological time line. Obviously. But they were written out of order. Lol. Here is the Chronological way to read them:

  • 1) The Infernal Devices.
  • 2) The Last Hours. (not written yet)
  • 3) The Mortal Instruments.
  • 4) The Dark Artifices. (not finished as of this post)
  • 5) The Wicked Powers. (not written yet)
  • Shadowhunters and Downworlders.
  • The Shadowhunter's Codex.
  • The Bane Chronicles.

You may see the issues already. haha. And here is the published order:

  1. The Mortal InstrumentsCity of Bones
  2. TMICity of Ashes
  3. TMICity of Glass
  4. The Infernal DevicesClockwork Angel
  5. TMICity of Fallen Angels
  6. TIDClockwork Prince
  7. TMICity of Lost Souls
  8. TIDClockwork Princess
  9. The Bane Chronicles
  10. TMICity of Heavenly Fire
  11. Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy
  12. The Dark ArtificesLady Midnight
  13. TDALord of Shadows

Since I started when the third book was published, I've been reading them as they come out. Which means switching story lines, going through time, and diving back in about once a year. Haha!!

 

If you read this. THANK YOU! I just think it's a fun story and I love these books. So, yeah!

It is supposed to be 4 hours a day, literally. I have never heard of Tim Ferris until your message. I have promptly looked him up and I'm reading the first 50 pages. Very interesting! Will read more, for sure!

What did you think of Queen of Shadows? 

 

I liked it! A lot actually. I was surprised to see on Goodreads reviews a bit of backlash. I enjoyed it much more than the last book. Little more detail here:

Spoiler

Manon is my favorite character, at first when she was introduced I was like... what am I reading? It seemed to apart from the rest of the story. But she really grew on me and I just love her to bits. This book had the epic fight between her in Aelin. OOOOOH BABY that was intense! I had no idea what was going to happen. hahaha.

 

Overall I liked it a lot, I understand people being frustrated but I liked how Aelin keeps switching things up romantically. You think Dorian, then Choal, then NOPE Rowan. I just think it's interesting and kinda changes up the normal YA structure. Shit happens and sometimes you can't recover. I liked the new characters and I was very happy with the end. Finally magic is back and the king is dead?!? WHOA. That was fun.

Create - Auditions: I set some up, but didn't do any. Blah.
  Study: I need to reread the Targeting Buyers chapter.

  Project: Fridays!

  Practise: Read aloud chapter five (Diagon Alley) of Harry Potter! One of the things I love reading to Mr. H is because he's never read Harry Potter and hasn't really seen the movies. So he's seeing everything through new eyes. For example, right when I said "Chapter Five, Diagon Alley." He said, "Oh, I get it. Like diagonally. That's why the buildings are all slanted." Now he said this with some sarcasm because it's so obvious. And it is! :ph34r: BUT, I never noticed that before!! hahaha. Keep in mind, I was a lil Lilmissbri when I started reading. XD (1 point)
Learn - Had a green smoothie. SO good. Also tried a new recipe! It is now one of Mr. H's and my favorites. One Pot Cajun Chicken and Sausage Alfredo Pasta. (1 point)
Train - 
Barely worked out. UGH. How much will power it took! Such a lazy day. I gotta channel my inner Nephilim. (5 points)
Hunt - 
I stretched and took measurements today. A bit bummed cause I went up 2% in BF, but there are a lot of elements here. I literally just had my birthday which bumped me up to a higher bracket and I measured bigger this month. So, oh well. Haha. BUT, I really improved my splits! So much so, I may have pulled something in my right leg. It doesn't hurt, it's just something I constantly feel and is a bit uncomfortable when I walk. (5 points)
Listen - Listened! It was talking more about hospitality and such. (10 points)
Read - 
Lord of Shadows arrived! Began reading almost immediately. (4%)
Thrill - Been playing Borderlands with Mr. H(82%)

 

Daily Total:

Create = 2/10 | Learn = 1/5 | Train = 5/5 | Hunt = 5/10 | Listen = 10/10 | Read = 4% | Thrill = 82%

Author's Notes: Definitely bummed about the body fat %, especially when I was so close to my goal. But I'm really excited for my splits, reading, and all my other challenges.

Create - 4 Hours: I worked on my Disney assignment for tonight's class. (2 hours) Then, had class! It was so much fun. We got to go to Disney Television Animation again. Eek! I think I impressed and such. So that's good!! But I did find out there is a 100% chance I won't work with them until I am a part of the union. Legal reasons. (3 hours)

  Project: Fridays!

  Practise: Didn't read today. Class always goes really late. So, Mr H is asleep or super tired by the time I get home. (5 points)
Learn - Had a green smoothie and leftovers! So freaking good. (0 points)
Train -
 Much needed rest. (0 points)
Hunt - Stretched! Went gingerly and gently, but was able to stretch it out. Definitely not as low as I got yesterday! But that's probably because I didn't work out beforehand. (5 points)
Listen - Patiently waiting for Monday! (0 points)
Read - 
Read some last morning and last night (like a page). (6%)
Thrill - Definitely put some more focus on Overwatch. This event is killing me!! I have only gotten player icons so far! WAHHHHH. (82%)

 

Daily Total:

Create = 7/15 | Learn = 5/5 | Train = 5/5 | Hunt = 10/15 | Listen = 10/10 | Read = 6% | Thrill = 82%

Author's Notes: Definitely need to priorities my career challenge. That's why I made the challenge like it is and that's why I'm failing! Haha. Need to put the emphasis on THAT before everything else. Thus, that is what I shall do.
