WHY CASSANDRA CLARE BOOKS SHOULD BE READ BY ALL BOOKWORMS

I think that it’s past the time that we all just bow down to Cassandra Clare for real this time.

I mean. . . she made Mark Marvellous Beautiful Blackthorn exist, and if that’s not reason enough, then I don’t know what is. I could list things if you want.

TOUGH. NOW I’M GIVING YOU A LIST BEFORE THE ACTUAL LIST BEGINS.

      • Beautiful Jem is he not reason enough for you?
      • The amazing diversity that just never quits.
      • The seraph blades perchance??? ERM. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL.
      • How about JACE?
      • Just the Herondales in general. . .
      • THE WHOLE SMOL BLACKTHORN FAMILY
      • Or. . . the fact that there’s a whole other DIMENSION??
      • Or you know. . . IDRIS?? 

(This is basically a reason for me to fangirl about this series and then also to hype me up to finally read LoS. . .)

LET’S FIRSTLY TALK ABOUT THE FIRST-CLASS DIVERSITY.

Okay, so one of the blackthorns has autism, there are several members from the LGBTQ+  community in each book and it makes the books SO REFRESHING.

RIGHT NOW DEAN IS BEAUTIFULLY DEMONSTRATING THIS. IS IT JUST ME OR DOES ANYONE PICTURE MARK BLACKTHORN A LITTLE LIKE THIS? okay. just me. again.

SO THERE ARE THREE WORLDS FOR YOU TO ENTER??

You are literally spoiled for choice. Okay. SO there’s one set WAYYY in the past, there’s one that’s set LITERALLY RIGHT NOW, and one a couple of years ago.

There’s one with a trio, one with A HUGE TEAM OF KICK-ASS CHARACTERS, and one with the SMOL-EST family to ever exist in fantasy YA.

Speaking of which. . . IMG_1882

  THERE’S SO MUCH LOYALTY AND FAMILY BONDS ARE SO STRONG.

So. Much. family. It actually makes me (A) super envious (B) want to have 435786 children and grandchildren (C) actually warm my cold, dead heart (D) have I mentioned jealous . . .? (E) want to be in the Blackthorn family.

PLEASE LET ME JOIN THE BEAUTIFUL BLACKTHORN FAMILY.

I just. . . THEY’RE ALL SO LOYAL…

YUP, YOU GUESSED IT.

THERE ARE SO MANY SHIPS TO SHIP MY HEART CANNOT TAKE IT.

I can’t spoil it for people if they’re WEIRD AND HAVEN’T READ THEM YET and have been living under a rock . . . but oh my gosh can Cassandra Clare just stop (A) making me ship literally everyone with anything* (B) making me feel like I need to be a kick-ass warrior AND slay at relationships (C) making my heart explode with emotion.

I just want all of them to have a happy hope ast feed them cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate forever. . .

*I’d probably ship Will with a pencil (or me) or something if Cassie Clare wrote that. I mean… it could be a healthy relationship.

EVERYONE IS SO KICK-ASS.

THIS IS BASICALLY ALL SHADOWHUNTERS AS SOON AS THEY CAN WALK.

Honestly, this series has everything. I!! Just!! Can’t!!

They’re like these 385763-meter-jumping-powerful-demon-killing-hero-demi-angles that kick.ass.every.damn.day while all being tortured smol souls that I adore and want to just look after forever. JEMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

what? don’t judge me . . .IMG_1882

  SIX, THE WIT. 

I just. When there’s a book with certain Herondales, you cannot think for a second that you wont be met with constant witty comments, humour adn downright SASS.

You just can’t.

These books are so brillaintly hilarious and if youread it for nothing else, read it for the comedy.

I think that the funniest of the three series is by far The Mortal Instruments, as there’s Jace, who is literally made of sass and nothing else. Screw genetics. It’sjust sass and nothing else (I mean… there’s good looks too… oh and we cannot forget the amazing fighting skills. . . BUT YOU GET WHAT I MEAN. . . im not obsessed with him or anything). I’M NOT COMPLAINING.

“You said you were going for a walk!? What kind of walk takes six hours?”
“A long one?”

“Usually I’m remarkably good natured. Try me on a day that doesn’t end in y.”

THE BEAUTIFUL LANGUAGE 

“And I’m suppose to sit by while you date boys and fall in love with someone else, get married…?” His voice tightened. “And meanwhile, I’ll die a little bit more every day, watching.”

The characters are so raw, adn the wiritng is so eloquent, and so much EMOTION is displayed in the writing and THE CHARACTES ARE DEVELOPED SO QUICKLY.

I JUST DIE.

I’ve actually died several (thousand) times while reading this series, it’s been a relaxing experience so far.

  1. You know, I have been considering reading her books. I read the original trilogy (Mortal Instruments?) a few years ago, and it was okay. But I have heard such amazing reviews for her books, I’m tempted to give the others a go too. This post has just convinced me! Congratulations 😉

  2. AHahah yeahhh I have to admit I have never read any of her books… *hides behind TBR pile*. A few years ago EVERYONE from my school was reading them and unfortunately I am either before the trend or run away from it like a hipster from starbucks coffee. I got the first one as a gift so I will probably read it eventually…. but it’s no where near the top of my list and my continuing of her books will rely heavily on whether I like that one book. It’s a lot of pressure… I feel like I’ve waited too long to dive into that world and I don’t want to have to deal with it now.

  3. ALL HAIL THIS POST!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ Every freaking thing you stated is sooo true. Everybody needs some Herondales in their life to make it brighter or some Blackthorn family. For me, it's both though, CC's books are the beeeeest!

  4. I love Cassandra Clare books! I’ve read all of the mortal instruments and all of the infernal devices… Admittedly quite a while ago. Loving the supernatural gif as well 😂 xx

  5. Uuugghhh, my friend is OBSESSED with everything Shadowhunter, and I read City of Bones for her. But I was,, not impressed??? Three stars, and now I’ve forgotten everything that happened in order to read the second book. I mean, the only series I really want to read is TDA,,, the other ones don’t interest me that much. And Jace actually annoyed me??? He was definitely the Sarcastic and Sassy Bad Boy With a Tragic Past stereotype. But he WAS very funny. In fact, if I pik this series up for anything, it’ll be for the sass, because I’ve read quotes and they’re HILARIOUS.

    Anyways, that was a really lomg rant??? Great post!! 💕

  6. Yes! These are so amazing!!! I’ve only read The Mortal Instruments and the first Infernal Devices, and I’m very impatient to read the rest.
    And, yes, they are so shipable! I usually like, sorta ship things, but… I don’t get as serious about it as most people do. I shipped these characters so hard though! BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL WONDERFUL!!! And I just want Clockwork Prince SO badly!!!

      1. That has to have been my most original comment ever.

        They’re just.. everything. Simply. Everything.
        And I started loving them even more when they DIDN’T screw up while casting for Shadowhunters because – kill me or don’t, don’t care – those actors simply upped MALEC that little bit more and I thought that wasn’t even possible anymore.

            1. Ahhh I don’t like Jace!! He doesn’t seem like the Jace I pictured, and for me was all wrong. UGH yes Clary. I don’t feel like she can act??? The chemistry between her and Jace just isn’t there for me, which is super sad
