Hello y'all! It has been decided that we are going to start reading City of Bones in June 2020. I wanted to put this out now so people would have time to get the book. We are going to be reading a book per month, and the rest of the information is going to be in the broadcast message. Feel free to start discussing City of Bones whenever, but the actual discussion stars in June!


Beenish (beenishamir) | 313 comments I'd love to reread !! it's been long I read it, there are so many Shadowhunter books for one to start rereading.

Lia Carstairs (chainofnovels) | 212 comments Ooo yes its been years since I read TMI and that was before I got GR, so I forgot what I actually thought about the books. Lol, I just gave them all 3 stars. A reread will let me put the actual rating for the series.😅


Shreya Karnati (shreyakarnati) | 17 comments I read all of the books this year but I read them back to back because I couldn't wait so it will be nice to read them at a slower pace for the second time.

Cat Carstairs | 81 comments I think I liked City of Bones better than City of Ashes...though it was a little info-dumpy at times, I really enjoyed the introduction to the Shadow world!

May (theladymidnight) | 248 comments I decided to try the audiobook version so I'll probably be going through this slowly.

I listened to the first two chapters and I can't believe how much things I forgot 😂

 π (astascen) | 22 comments SAME I decided to try and listen to the audiobook let's see if I like it


Shreya Karnati (shreyakarnati) | 17 comments I am starting this one with the audiobook version today

Isn’t it very info dumpy in the beginning?

Yeah it is! I guess it feels that way more because we already know about the shadowhunter world.


Tessa  Herondale~Carstairs (jessawessa) | 862 comments Mod
Yeah I thought the same thing


Shreya Karnati (shreyakarnati) | 17 comments The book gets even more info dumpy in the middle when Luke explains everything to Clary

May (theladymidnight) | 248 comments Just finished my reread and I enjoyed it! I decided to keep my 4 star rating.

I forgot how funny Jace could be :D


Tessa  Herondale~Carstairs (jessawessa) | 862 comments Mod
So... did y’all notice anything you didn’t the last time you read this?


Beenish (beenishamir) | 313 comments of course!! I almost forgot Clary gets that demon's blood which is the reason she doesn't wake up to 3 days.

Same here! I forgot about that scene! Tbh I forgot the majority of the book since I read it for the first time in 2013 😂

Hehehehe


message 22: by Cat (new) - rated it 4 stars

Cat Carstairs | 81 comments I read this about a year ago...actually less since I read it around Christmas of 2019, but I feel like I've forgotten soooo many things XD


Tessa  Herondale~Carstairs (jessawessa) | 862 comments Mod
I read it last month, and I saw a lot of the flaws I didn't notice the first time. You can really see Cassie grow, from City of Bones to the now masterpiece Chain of Gold.

I HAVE to get my hands on CoG soon. I'm dying not being able to read it yet.

Yeah her writing has really improved a lot over the years

This is completely unrelated to this topic, but the cover reveal for Chain of Iron is on July 1st on Cassie's insta! Hannah from A Clockwork Reader gets to do it with her and I'm super jealous


message 27: by Lia (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lia Carstairs (chainofnovels) | 212 comments @Tessa HC Omg yes! At first when I got the newsletter, I thought we'd actually see the cover and I shrieked..........but then I saw that it was just her telling us to wait until July 1st for the cover. That was an epic fail.😞😅


Tessa  Herondale~Carstairs (jessawessa) | 862 comments Mod
I saw the notification for the newsletter on my computer and immediately dropped everything to look at it... I was disappointed


☀︎El In Oz☀︎ (elinoz) | 303 comments Lmao same I thought it would be early access since I knew it would be our July 1
I think it’ll be Lucie with ghosts on the cover... maybe Jesse too?
What do you guys think?
Or maybe grace


Shreya Karnati (shreyakarnati) | 17 comments I think the cover is going to have either James, Lucie, or Mathew on it


Beenish (beenishamir) | 313 comments maybe, can't wait for the cover reveal!
