It’s been five years since the battle between Clary and her demonic brother, and now the torch has been passed to another pair of fierce warriors…

Emma lost her parents that day and her life has been nothing but a battle to try to figure out who murdered her parents, leaving her an orphan. Nevertheless, she had Julian, who took on the reigns to be the parent to his family. Together, as parabatai, they held together, but strange murders are taking place, taking the shape of her parents’ death leading them to an unsanctioned peace with fairies that may even hold the key to putting the family back together.

Weekly Reading List #38

By Cynthia Ayala

Hello there avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a great week. All in all, things are good. I’ve already started packing to go back home to Florida. I’m gonna need a second job this summer. I applied at Barnes and Noble and I’m really praying here to work there in the summer, Monday – Wednesday, 9 – 5. That would be perfect, absolutely perfect. I would work there, stocking books, marveling at them, taking extra good care of them, and then I could go home, spend time with my mom and my kitties before heading to my bf’s apartment because he lives closer and drives by there on his way to work. It would certainly be better than waking up obscenely early to catch the bus for an hour long ride. I’m being hopeful here, I could so use that job because I hate how low my account has gotten. Oh money. Living off campus is so expensive, but I’m being hopeful.

Anyway, it was a nice week and it went by really quick. Wow, I only have a month left in school. Insane! Anyway here is my reading list that will keep me sane. All synopsis are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading. Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #38”
