#TAGTUESDAY: The Mortal Instruments

Since I’m complete Shadowhunter trash, I’m taking inspiration from Celine (celinereads) and doing this awesome tag about my favorite fictional world–Shadowhunters!

Warning: There will be spoilers about some of the books by Cassandra Clare, read at your own risk!

Who is your favorite character (from any of the books?)

» MAGNUS BANE, obviously. He’s fabulous, he’s in all of the books, he defines himself as a “free-wheeling bisexual” and his magic is awesome. Next favorite would probably be Julian Blackthorn from Lady Midnight.

Who is your OTP?

» Oh, nooo. I’m so bad at choosing when people ask me. I’d have to go with Will and Tessa from The Infernal Devices, just because they are so alike while also being different enough to have interesting conversations (plus, they’re both bookworms, so it’s meant to be).

What is your favorite Jace quote from the books? 

» “Don’t order any of the faerie food,” said Jace, looking at her over the top of his menu. “It tends to make humans a little crazy. One minute you’re munching a faerie plum, the next minute you’re running naked down Madison Avenue with antlers on your head. Not,” he added hastily, “that this has ever happened to me.”

Who is the sexiest shadowhunter in the series?

» Series like the new TV show? Because that would obviously be Alec (Matthew Daddario)


If you could have any shadowhunter last name, what would it be? 

» Does Julia Lightwood sound horrendous? I’ve never really thought of this before!

Who is your favorite actor in the TV show?

» HARRY SHUM JR as my babe Magnus


Who is your favorite actress on the TV show?

» Emeraude Toubia as Izzy, definitely. She’s phenomenal.


Would you rather hear Jace play piano, play video games with Simon, hear Jem play the violin, or read a book with Will?

» Although I would love to read a book with Will, I think I’d choose Jem playing the violin. The way Cassie describes his playing in the books makes me kind of want to learn how to play the violin!

If you could have one rune from the book, what would it be?

» *pulls Codex off of shelf* the voyance rune is so gorgeous to me, I wish that I could have it on the back of my dominant hand!

What downworlder would you most likely be?

» A werewolf…? I’m not really sure why, but I feel like it would be awesome, plus I’d actually have a squad (pack).



» To be honest, BOTH. Each has its strengths and minimal weaknesses, plus they both have Magnus, so….

Who is the most hated character for you in the series?

» Camille and Valentine–interesting villains, but I hate them.

Spend a day with any character, who would it be?

» I think I’d like to hang out with Simon and Clary, I wouldn’t even mind being the third wheel!


Favorite book?

» City of Bones. Such a great start to what would become my favorite series/fictional world ever.

What did you think of CoHF?

» Oh man, that book was long. It was such an amazing ending to TMI, plus we got to see some characters from TID, which made me really happy and gave me all the feels.

Think you are most looking forward to in the fandom?

» The Dark Artifices and The Last Hours!

Worst cliffhanger?

» Tie between CoFA  and CoLS. Jace leaving with Sebastian broke my heart, but the whole angel’s wings and “I am coming” thing really freaked me out.

Favorite scene ever?

» “You don’t think I can fight.” Tessa said, drawing back and matching his silvery gaze with her own. “Because I’m a girl.”
“I don’t think you can fight because you’re wearing a wedding dress”, said Jem. “For what it’s worth, I don’t think Will could fight in that dress either.”
“Perhaps not,” said Will, who had ears like a bat’s. “But I would make a radiant bride.”

Jem or Will?

» WILL. Sorry Jem, but Will and I have the same sense of humor and a love for books, so we’d get along very well.

What scene/thing are you most looking forward to in The Dark Artifices?

» I’ve already read (and reviewed!Lady Midnight, but I’m excited for everything that’s going to happen in this series. Seriously, EVERYTHING.

If you could say one thing to Cassie, what would it be?

» “Thank you for creating a world has become so important to me, and please don’t stop writing.” 🙂

If you could play one character in TMI show, who would it be?

» I am not one for acting, but I’d love to just be an extra at one of Magnus’ parties to wear some crazy weird outfit and be in the same room as the cast. 🙂

Any other Cassandra Clare fans out there? What did you think of my answers? Let me know in the comments!

Happy reading!

xx, Julia

  1. YES!! OMG! I loved reading this, Julia! I totally agree Wessa is my OTP too! This world is really important to me, as well! It was one of the first young-adult books I fell in love with! I remember fangirling about Clockwork Princess when it came out! Lady Midnight is amazing! Have you read it yet? I’m so excited for TLH!
