Goodreads Summary: In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.
Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.
The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris – but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?
When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee – even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned…
Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!

*Before you read on.. there may be spoilers.. so if for some ridiculous reason you have not finished this book… or have not started the series… leave now and come back later… BE GONE!!! *

My Review: After reading that summary I was pretty sure this book was going to kill me! Like… Legit I had prepared myself for some serious heart brake… ook… I’ve been trying to find the right words to explain how I feel about this book but I have found none sooooo….

Let me put this in Gif form…

This is how I expected to feel after reading 725 pages written by Cassandra Clare…

But instead… I was more like this..

& This..

Like seriously….I was not satisfied!!!! WHY didnt ANYONE DIE??? It was waaaay too happy!!! Like… WTF NO ONE DIED!!! They were all in hell… in HELL how the fuck is it possible for a group of teenagers to enter hell & NOT DIE? SERIOUSLY??

If I wanted a happy ending I would have watched a Disney Movie. Fucking Cassandra Clare. If Simon would have just remained memoryless.. THAT would have been a Solid ending.  but no…

Anyway.. that is basically the only issue I had with the book…

ALSO…

I AM REALLLLY EXCITED FOR TDA NOW!!! WHOS WITH ME???

Shortest Review EVER!!! #HOLLA

Rating: 4/5

Basically anything that came out of Alec’s mouth was perfect!

Update: Sylvia VS. Life

Life is crazy…. if you are indeed alive, you know what I mean.. Life is fucking crazy and its constantly throwing things at us unexpectedly. For this reason I have been absent from Da Blob. BUT I have attended some fangirl events and post on Instagram & twitter frequently.. so I am not completely gone. So Here’s whats been going on in my life… I started working at Disneyland In April. It has now become our Peak season.. which means I am working at least 5 days a week. When I am not working I am sleeping.. or running errands…dealing with family drama…Catching up with friends…and when I am lucky… I am binge watching my favorite telly shows or reading a book. Its hard to find time to just do you.

On screen my life might seem “glamorous”, but really… we stand in line for hours… sometimes over night for a couple days and as if we don’t get enough sleep already… we get even less sleep at events. I get comments from people who say they want my life or they wish they were me…Yes… on Social media my  life may seem SUPER awesome…but you have to know that I only put the happy fangirl stuff on the internet.. why would I share the struggles? You guys don’t need to see all my drama.. in fact I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t follow me if you saw all the drama. I have struggles just like everyone else. I make time to hang out with my fangirls and go to events…I basically work to support my fangirl habit…Books are expensive Yo.

Now for the fun stuff…
In the past few weeks I have seen attended a Fangirl Wedding.

Seen The Darling buds Perform… TWICE! I got that Monday off.. but I called out of work Thursday because I am a selfish. #TheStruggle

Made it into one of #TristanSelfies

Attended Leigh Bardugo’s Ruin & Rising Book Release Party!!!

Finished reading Shadow & Bone
Started Seige & Storm

Received my Secret Beach Read Buddy Box!!! LOOK AT ALL MY SWAG!

Watched the Delirium Pilot
(Thoughts Coming Soon)

But mostly… I’ve just been working.

I seriously LOVE my job! I love the people… I love the environment… I LOVE MY JOB!

& I am perfectly content with working.. In fact.. I wish they would give me more hours a day… I need a CAR!!! So if you happen to find me working come say hi! I don’t bite… I’ll probably want to take a selfie & give you a button. #MakingMagic I apologize for the lack of posts on Da Blob & I promise to try to post often… I have a lot of books that need reviewing…and even more books that need to be read.

Now… here is what I have to look forward to…

Sunday June 29th I will be hanging out in Disneyland
Monday June 30th I will be at the Glass House watching  Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers Perform!

THIS AWESOME BOOK EVENT!
at least.. I think I am going… I might miss this one but not 100% sure yet hahah

But Mostly… I am just excited  for my back to back days off because then I can sit and read… and finally catch up on OITNB!
So that’s my life you know what I mean? & now I’m starving so I gotta go feed my belly. hahahah

Follow me on the internet YO… I am constantly on Twitter & Instagram.. but you can find me on Facebook  & Tumblr as well!

Love Letters To The Dead Fierce Reads Challenge

About

It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more; though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was; lovely and amazing and deeply flawed; can she begin to discover her own path.

My Review

Favorite Scene

There is this one scene where Laurel is being silly and running in circles with her hands out hugging the world & in that moment she is free… That is my favorite scene.. Tears fell as I read that.

Playlist

Favorite Recipient

Friendship

The friendships in this book are a huge reason why I love this book so much.
These are true friends. They love with no judgement. & they have each others back.

Write your own letter

I can’t bring myself to share my letter because its quite personal.. at first when I started writing it I thought it would be a fun little challenge but then it turned into something really deep that I had no idea was bothering me.

OUTFIT
