The Eight Stages of reading a Cassandra Clare book
Cassandra Clare will forever be a favourite author of mine. She never fails to unhinge my cold stone heart and bring along all the feels.
Behold, a list of the emotional stages you will, without a doubt, encounter while devouring one of Clare's incredible novels.
That feeling of opening a new book and seeing the Prologue.
2. Sleep Deprivation
Never start a Cassandra Clare book in the evening. Once you start, you will never stop.
3. Falling in Love
You come across THE ONE, who happens to flirt with the main protagonist but you know they're really flirting with you. Hey, Will Herondale.
The first character death occurs and you hold a silent vigil inside your mind.
5. Hysterical Crying
You have a break down every other chapter at any mention of a character from an accompanying series. Malec and Clace in The Dark Artifices say what now?
6. Trust issues
Bad things happen. You question everything. The Clave wouldn't do that, would they?
7. More crying
You stare into the distance until the next Cassandra Clare book is released.
