It was a tough week. I did not want to be in school this week (but that’s more because of the way they treat me than anything else), but I had to go into town on Friday for Peace Corps stuff, so I met up with my friend. We always try to coordinate our schedules because it’s tough to get into the capital (and I always feel guilty missing school even though I don’t have a choice.) This week, after we finished our work/meetings, we got ice cream and went to see Pirates of the Caribbean! I’m not quite sure how I feel about the movie, but the male lead was cute – so that’s a plus. (And no, I don’t mean Jack Sparrow.) Have you guys seen it yet, what did you think?
Books I Read This Week:
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
Lord of Shadows was one of my most anticipated books of 2017 (probably tied for first, if I’m being honest) and it seriously did not disappoint. I absolutely loved it and am so sad that the next book won’t be out until 2019. Thankfully, I feel relatively satisfied with the ending and not absolutely dying because of a torturous cliffhanger. You can check out my spoiler-free review here.
Shadowhunter Codex by Cassandra Clare
Even though I’ve read this before, I’ve been a wee bit obsessed with the Shadow World. I would have loved to be able to read the History of Notable Shadowhunters (which I’ve never read before, gasp), alas I could not find it. Instead, I decided to re-read the Codex and had a good time attempting to think of a Shadowhunter name. Check out my review here!
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
My (aforementioned) friend and I decided to read Lord of Shadows together. I am proud to say that I introduced her to the Shadowhunter Chronicles and she is sufficiently obsessed. Finally, someone in the real world that’s as obsessed with the world as I am and I can convince to do Shadowhunter cosplay with me! She was afraid of a book hangover, so I suggested we re-read the Infernal Devices. You can read my review here!
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith
Wizarding World Series:
This week I talked about the books that students from Durmstrang might enjoy. We learn so little about the Wizarding School that makes its home in Northern Europe – but I always wanted to learn more. Be sure to read that post here!

Top Summer Reads
I recommended some books that you might enjoy over the summer – but they’re not all contemporary! I know people usually like light, fluffy contemporary books during the summer, but I wanted to provide some variety. You can read my post here.
None this week!
What books did you guys read this week, any new favourites? I’d love to get more recommendations as if my TBR pile isn’t big enough already! What Wizarding School do you think I’ll be featuring next week? Any reads on your summer TBR? Let me know in the comments below!
