Your age does not define how well or not you will/would like a book.
Just because this is labeled as a YA book and you will be twenty something when it comes out doesn't mean that you can't enjoy it.
If you are a big fan of Clare's series and end up reading it how ever old you may be, that's awesome. If you don't end up reading it, no big deal. I just don't see why people need to be saying that "this is the last Clare/Shadowhunter book I'll be reading" because it hasn't even come out yet, nor have

ok I have two things lmao
1. what’s the point in releasing in 2018 if it’s being released in December? I get it in some ways, it’ll be great for holidays due to sales. However, we may as well just wait the full two years and get it in May 2019 tbh.
2. I hate the cover. The red is too bold an

I've literally only read City of Bones so far this year, but you all got me too excited to finish this series! So, I just ordered a signed copy through Good Choice Reading, because I apparently have no chill! Now, let's hope I can quickly get caught up, and completely love, because you all promised me faeries!

don't know why there are so many complaints about age! I will be 29 when this books comes out. but there is nothing in this world that'll stop me from reading this book, or any other book I'm interested in, just because I'm "overage"!

Yo al ver la portada:
description

Igual voy a comprar y leer el libro, pero en serio que la portada me desagrada mucho. En especial porque las otras dos portadas de esta trilogía son hermosamente perfectas.

Lo que deseo que pase en este libro:
-Que Jules se vuelva malo.
-Que Annabel mate a todos los del Cohort.
-Que Kieran, Mark y Cristina maten al Lord of Shadows.
-Que la Clave sea liderada por Clary, Jase y Magnus y logren crear una sociedad Shadowhunter inclusiva y tolerante, y sean felices para siempre.

“You hated the Shadow Market in London,” Kit said. “It really bothered you. The noises, and the crowd —“

Ty’s gaze flicked down to Kit. “I’ll wear my headphones. I’ll be all right.”

“…and I don’t know if we should go again so soon,” Kit added. “What if Helen and Aline get suspicious?”

Ty’s gaze darkened. “Julian told me once,” he said, “that when people keep coming up with reasons not do something, it’s because they don’t want to do it. Do you not want to do this?”

Ty’s voice sounded tight. The thrumming wire again, sharp with tension. Under the cotton of his shirt, his too-thin shoulders had tightened as well. The neck of his shirt was loose, the delicate line of his collarbones just visible.

Kit felt a rush of tenderness toward Ty, mixed with near-panic. In other circumstances, he thought, he would just have lied. But he couldn’t lie to Ty.”
