the one where i’m really freaking excited to read tda | 110 thoughts i had while reading city of heavenly fire

hey, hi, hello. We have made it to the end of this iconic book series. This post is my thoughts while reading the sixth and final book in Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, City of Heavenly Fire! I was so, so, so excited to finish this series. It’s really not one of my favorites… I’m only reading it because I love TID and I know that if I read this first, TDA will be even better.

If I cannot move Heaven, I will raise Hell.

Overall, COHF was somewhat disappointing. It was a good finale, I was just expecting to like it more. I did really like the books and I actually really like Clary now. Jace is just okay. This book made me cry a few times too. RTC

★★★★.25/5
