Alec: *locked in a room making an anniversary card*
Magnus: *knocks on the door* Alexander, what are you doing in there?
Alec: *panics* I’M CHEATING ON YOU
If in the last hours we don’t get a “father’s a worm” or “Simon’s a rat” scene between lightwoods, I don’t want it.

So everyone knows that there are 2 approved orders of how to read Cassandra Clare’s books right? For those who don’t, you can either read them by when they were published or by series; tmi, tid, & tda (the mortal instruments, the infernal devices, the dark artifices)
Welp I fucked up, but then again I have no investment to the overall story (/stories). Now I’ve only read 2 out of the 26 books. Those being City of Bones and Lady Midnight.
So my order of reading ‘em:
- City of Bones
- Lady Midnight
But like I usually spoil stuff for myself by reading the book/show’s Wikipedia page.
So, hi !
I already like TDA better than TMI and I’ve only just finished Lady Midnight (don’t eat me alive lmao). I get the vibe that it’s underrated, like when I first checked the tags for The Shadowhunter Chonicles I barely saw anything relating to TDA. Is this actually a thing or is it just me lmao
P.S. nothing beats TID don’t @ me

Clary in CoB to Alec: You know what? I hate you with every inch of my body.
Alec: Well, that’s not a lot of inches.
OMG CLARY ITS NOT LIKE IT WAS THAT MUCH IF A SECRET!? You know Alec was gay from one moment and your best friend being in love with you for 10 years just flew over your head?!? Huh!?
TID and TMI
Why doesn’t TDA have this kind of book cover?? I live for these covers, I love the art so much. 💚💚💚
