Books: The Dark Artifices, Ghosts of the Shadow Market
Alright, I am going to do it. I have to do it. If you do not know who Christopher Herondale is, then by all means either do not read this one or read away because you want some Spoilerfrom The Dark Artifices and The Lost Herondale legend.
Lia Langford and Zane, where to start? Where they come from? Yes, I think that should be a good start.
Please be aware that they will be spoilers here if you don’t know the characters already, go to the bottom of the post, where I will leave you a link to either a review of the book where they came from or to an outside source so you can buy it, read the book, and then come back here to chat or read about these two.
Hello, readers. Since everyone loves talking about Valentine’s and all of that, I thought it best to dedicated a little time to all the guys we actually want on this day, stop pretending everyone, you want this and nothing else because this is the real deal and they all have something we want.
Alright so I said we, but you know how this one is going to go and if you read a previous post about Male Charactershere on the blog, then you truly know what is coming next and who I am going to mention.
Alright so here’s the problem when you are a booklover, bookworm, bookfanatic, whatever you want to call it… you end up having a lot of boys and sometimes girls in your life; because the more you read, the more you have characters to add to a never-ending list of fictional characters to love from many books in different genres.
A long time ago, there was this post I wrote about Favourite Books and Charactersand it was good and all, but you see since then there have been so many other books and hence many main characters that have come to my attention, which I can’t put here because it will be the longest list…. Well not the longest that would be in like in a year or more from now when I read even more and have other amazing characters to talk about.
But going back to the present, and why I am rambling here today… I thought it will be nice to have a little reminder of some of the characters so far; you might not agree, you might think that I am wrong or crazy but it is my list after all and perhaps you will discover we have similar taste in books.
I simply have to do this… Because if I don’t, then I might explode… We love The Immortal Instruments and we (fans) are hoping for the TV Series to begin in 2016, and while we do that…. Nothing, there is only this ‘at the edge of your seat’ feeling that won’t go away. The have casted some good actors, I might not agree with All of their choices but I am determined to give them all the benefit of the doubt, well there is one with whom I don’t have to do that because I am certain he’ll be great. If you haven’t read the books, I shall remind you to do so immediately because I am not holding back here…
Katherine McNamara and Alberto Rosende will be our star and her childhood friend (I’m sorry is that spoiler? Don’t think so everyone should have read the books by now, at least one); Dominic Sherwood (Benefit of the doubt), Emeraude Toubia (BOTD), and Matthew Daddario will be portraying our lovely group of young Shadowhunters siblings (Again… this is for the fans). And Harry Shum Jr. (The one I look forward to…) will be portraying, bringing to life, making us think that a hot warlock from Brooklyn is possible, Harry as Magnus Bane, which I admit make me very happy in case you didn’t notice, I have high hopes for Harry I think he will be awesome…
Where to begin? Once upon a time, oh wait! That’s not it.
The Mortal Instruments, these books were first recommend by a friend a long long time ago, I didn’t listen to his recommendations not in the slightest, he even sent me the books (Yes Ebook reader here, in case you didn’t know), I was like “Yes, I’ll read them” and then I would add a muttered: Someday.
I was so mistaken then, The Mortal Instruments are great, please do not let the movie trick you, they gave it a good try with that and we fans hope they do better with the TV Series, the movie has three great things: Jamie Campbell Bower, Jonathan Rhys Meyer, Aidan Turner. Oh! Make that 4 things with Lena Headey. So yes, it could have been awesome if they had known who would be watching the movie. Done with that. The rest of the actors were alright too but the books are so much better, really done now. The so-called review starts now.
There are times when my feelings are not that this book is better than the other, I am mostly inclined to believe that all books have their own little things, different details that make them unique and I do not like comparing them to each other.
The same happens with the characters, specially the male characters clearly, which is why I decided to compile them all up in one place, though it has been sometime since I last read the books, the characters still continue to be a presence. Here is a list of my top characters and books but it is not yet complete.
