A couple months ago I found a bunch of 30 day book challenges on Pinterest, so I decide that I would do one this month. There will be a “category” for it on my blog to locate the posts easier.
Day 01: A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would just freaking end already.
The Mortal Instruments series. I decided to go with a book series that I wish would just freaking end. It FINALLY ended though! I had a love/hate relationship with this series. I felt that it went on way too long. In my opinion it could have ended perfectly at book three. It took me two months to finish the last book (City of Heavenly Fire). I would start reading it, get insanely bored and then I would stop to read something else (I ended up reading five books before I finally finished it). It was kind of a huge disappointment, because I really loved the second and third books. It started to go downhill during book four. I was pretty much over the entire series after I read book four.
Did you read The Mortal Instruments series? How did you feel about it?
Unrelated: My birthday is tomorrow and one of the things my boyfriend bought me was a new bookcase (it’s pretty tall – five shelves – picture below and it doesn’t even show the entire thing) and I was pretty excited about it. We basically kind of celebrated on Saturday since my birthday falls on a week day. We also got frozen yogurt and my younger sister came along with us. A new frozen yogurt shop opened up right down the road from our house called Orange Leaf and it’s so good! We’ve already gone three times in the last week, lol.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and got lots of reading done. I didn’t get that much reading done this weekend. I did read some more of Dorothy Must Die and I started to read some of The Glass Arrow. I wouldn’t normally read two books at once (unless I’m listening to an audiobook at work), but since I am reading The Glass Arrow as part of a book club I’m in (Bloggers’ Book Club) I decided to see how I feel about reading two books at once. I was basically running around yesterday, so I didn’t get much reading done. I was on the hunt for wallpaper/contact paper and it took three hours and four stores later to find some that was cute enough! Before I go, I have my February reads recap post up over here. 🙂 Off to work!

I loved the Mortal Instruments series and though the length of it was perfect. I was pretty sad when it ended though, it’s one of my favourite book series of all time.
I wanted to love it so much, but it wasn’t happening for me toward the end. The first three books were great though. I’m glad that you loved it though!
I have read the first three Mortal Instrument books and the first two Infernal Devices books… I’m meh about MI, but still plan on finishing the series, and YES about ID, and can’t wait to get to Clockwork Princess!
Mortal Instruments started to go downhill for me, but I still wanted to push through and get it finished. It took me so long to finish the last two books in the series. I was iffy about reading the Infernal Devices because I ended up growing to dislike MI and I needed a break from the Shadowhunter world. I might give it a try still though. A lot of people are saying that it’s a lot better than MI was.
Yes! ID is WAY better than MI so far. I feel invested, so I want to finish both… it’ll happen eventually!
Happy Birthday Ashley ! Have a lovely one ! Also, your bookcase is an awesome birthday present! 😀
Thank you! 🙂 I am so obsessed with my new bookcase, lol.
