In preparation for the release of Lord of Shadows I really wanted to reread Lady Midnight, refresh my memory and write a proper review. Buuuuuut, I forgot to do it in time. So instead I’m gonna stay strong, hopefully dodge all the spoilers but still follow my original plan. I’ve wanted to read Lord of Shadows since Lady Midnight was released in the beginning of May last year.
I met Cassandra Clare at a signing last year in Dublin
It was a great time though I was so nervous I almost couldn’t say hi. She was really sweet and she gave me the Morgenstern ring necklace she was wearing. I fangirled hard as you can probably imagine. My cheeks were blushing so hard that I looked like a sunburned lobster for hours afterwards. Thinking about it makes me both really happy and embarrassed at the same time. I was a mess, but the memory makes up for it. It really boosted my mood.
It’s always a treat going back to the shadowhunter world.
So far I’ve managed to not even read the synopsis for LoS. I just want to dive in not knowing anything. I really hope Tessa will make a cameo, that would make me cry tears of happiness. Anything referencing The Infernal Devices will make my heart all gooey. Lady Midnight left me with so many unanswered questions. Every time I’ve finished a book set in the shadowhunter world it has always left me wanting even more. I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am about continuing reading about Emma and Julian’s adventures. Even thought I haven’t even read it yet, I’m so sad that it’s going to be a whole year before the third book in the series comes out.
My pre-ordered copy is not here yet, for some reason I’ve never gotten a pre-order on the day of release. I guess I’ll just have to lock myself inside my room the next week or so to get lost in one of my favorite fictional worlds (and hope my LoS copy arrives before I finish the reread *anxiously checking the mail every 15 minutes*). The impending book hangover is going to be real bad though!
