Review:

The first five stars in this series. And its about damn time. Seriously, what took so long? My heart has been ready for the taking ages ago.

Ok, so I’ve been dying to go back and read The Infernal Devices for Will, obviously. Therefore, Nothing But Shadows is perfectly up my alley. Every time Will showed up my heart would make a little dance and it just can’t stop! ♫ ♪ 

James, the son of Tessa and Will, took some time to grow on me. Surprisingly, Matthew Fairchild, the beautiful radiant sun, stole my heart. Maybe because he reminds me of a younger Jace? Maybe because Jocelyn is also a Fairchild, meaning Clary is also a Fairchild. So the fact that Fairchild’s and Herondale’s were long time friends and attracted to each other is giving me the feels. Thus proving that Jace and Clary are star crossed lovers and just perfect for each other. Who know? Maybe that’s just my theory? *innocent grin

“The Smile won Matthew extra time before bed, extra Christmas pudding, extra anything he wanted. Adults were helpless to resist The Smile.

Matthew gave his all to this particular smile. Butter melted. Birds sang. People slipped about dazed amid the butter and birdsong.” 

Anyway, I’m finally getting into the groove of things. This is brilliant preparation for me to delve into the Shadowhunter world again!!

I’m soo excited!!

Until Next Time!

BookBye!
