REVIEW: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

If you have never read The Mortal Instruments Series, or The Infernal Devices series, then I suggest you do so right now. Stop whatever you are doing and go and buy the books and binge read them immediately because they are amazing. (Well I think so at least)

Note: There will most likely be spoilers in this post, you have been warned!

I feel like I have been waiting for this book for just about forever and it finally came out and I was not disappointed in the slightest.

The character development was perfect and everything was perfectly wrapped and packaged at the end.

After reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth I was so scared to finish this book because I did not think I could survive the death of Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Alec, Simon, or Magnus and thank the good Lord in heaven that Cassandra Clare granted me mercy.

I loved the way that Emma Carstairs was introduced in this book. I was a little iffy about liking the new characters after reading the prologue, but as they were slowly introduced in the story I can honestly say I am so ready to read TDA!

My favorite part of this book is going to have to be when Brother Zachariah (aka JEM!!!) and Tessa talk to Clary and Jace. I love when Zachariah is remembering his past life, and the love he has for Will and Tessa. Whenever I had to read about him I felt myself reliving the end of Clockwork Princess.

I haven’t always been a huge fan of Malec because sometimes I feel like Alec is too whiney but in this book he developed so much and I really grew to love him and I am so happy that Magnus and Alec got a happy ending.

I can’t even discuss the amount of joy I have that Clace is still together and alive and well, and Jace brought up them living together in Herondale manor, because he is going to take the Herondale name. And their steamy scene in the demon realm…. (SO MANY FEELS!!)

Sizzy is so adorable and I couldn’t contain my happiness when Simon remembered Izzy after his memories were taken from him! And Simon is going to be a shadowhunter now? What?! He better be in TDA because I need to see how that is going to work out!

I loved that when Clary finally stabbed Sebastian that all the evil got burned away and for a few moments “Jonathan” was there to help them. It was genuinely heart breaking and almost made me feel bad for him….almost.

My least favorite parts in the book were honestly whenever I had to read from Maia’s POV. I just felt like she was a boring character and I never really connected with her when she was introduced. Although I do love Bat and wish he would’ve been in the story more.

This book was perfect. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better, happier ending than what was given, and let’s be real, after Clockwork Princess, I do believe Cassy owed it to all of us.

The Fault in Our Stars Movie Adaption

In January of 2012, American Author John Green released fourth young adult novel “The Fault in Our Stars”. A movie adaption for the book has been filmed and is set to be released June 6 of 2014. 

I have trouble envisioning characters from books when I completely fall in love with them like I did with Hazel and Augustus, but with Shailene and Ansel’s performances in Divergent I don’t think there is anything to be worried about. 

The trailer itself made me cry and I can only imagine the mess I will be once I get through the whole thing. 

What We Think During Home Workout Videos

Thought Catalog

Workout videos are wonderful. You’re telling me I can get all of the benefits of a gym in the comfort of my own home and stained yoga pants and in just 20 minutes? Sign me up! But workout videos are hard. And there are a lot of distractions. Like sitting down on the couch. And really anything.

Take for instance, one of my favorites, Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. I have a love/hate relationship with this workout video…

I pop open the DVD and slide it in the player. Level one. My weights are ready and my neon pink elastic headband is ready to hold my hair back as I get into shape.

Jillian comes on the screen. Her abs are on point. That’s so unfair. Well, it is her job to be in shape. My job requires me to sit on my ass…

10 Ways Shy People Flirt

1. Seek Eye Contact… Kind of

This is a common occurrence for shy folks — look at person you’re trying to flirt with — they’re not looking? Look away. Try again. Still not looking at you? Look away. Again? Yes! Ah, there’s successfully been eye contact made! It’s happening RIGHT NOW — hurry, look away immediately! Your heart is beating quickly and your pits are moist. (I used the word moist to make sure you’re a little uncomfortable just reading this.) The thing about shy flirters is that they want to make and not make eye contact at the same time.

2. Crossing Their Fearful Little Fingers

That’s right, sometimes a shy person knows good ‘n well that they lack the courage to initiate potentially positive interaction, so all they can do is say a prayer and hope that the other person notices their existence. “Maybe if I sit here in this…

1. The person who cares less has all the power. Nobody wants to be the one who’s more interested.

2. Because we want to show how cavalier and blasé we can be to the other person, little psychological games like ‘Intentionally Take Hours Or Days To Text Back’ will happen. They aren’t fun.

3. A person being carefree because they have zero interest in you looks exactly like a person being carefree because they think you’re amazing & are making a conscious effort to play it cool. Good luck deciphering between the two.

4. Making phone calls is a dying art. Chances are, most of your relationship’s communication will happen via text, which is the most detached, impersonal form of interaction. Get familiar with those emoticon options.

5. Set plans are dead. People have options and up-to-the-minute updates on their friends (or other potential…
