We changed the topic for 5 Fandom Friday again, since we didn’t have a clue what to write about 5 Nerdy Hobbies That People Don’t Consider Nerdy. So we came up with another topic: 5 Favorite Sidekicks/Side Characters.
Now this is something that I’m actually very passionate about! This week’s 5 Fandom Friday is “5 Geeky Tattoos We Want Or Have“, and I think that’s awesome.
I actually have one tattoo, but it’s not geeky. Frodo’s not that big a fan of having something permanently inked into her skin, which is perfectly fine. This is a list of potential tattoos for me and a list of awesome fandom tattoos that Frodo thinks are cool as long as they’re not on her body.
We’ve mentioned Cassandra Clare‘s books in a couple of posts. We’re huge fans of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, and we love the Shadowhunter world she has created. And now, finally, on March 8th, she has published the first book in her new trilogy The Dark Artifices: Lady Midnight. I read it, and I want to talk about it. So here I am.
I’m gonna do a review, and no real recap, and I’ll do my very best to keep it spoiler-free, I promise.
In case you missed it, there’s this series of books called The Mortal Instruments, written by Cassandra Clare. They made a movie based on the first book, City of Bones, in 2013 – and it sucked. in 2015, they announced that they were making a TV-show based on the books, called Shadowhunters – it premiered yesterday, and since it is one of the many TV-shows we are looking forward to this year, I watched it as soon as I could, and now I’m going to tell you whether it sucked or was awesome.
Spoiler-free, of course! That’s right, no spoilers in this review. I’m just going to write down my opinion. No recap, no anything spoiler-y.
Plus, we needed an alternative for the 5 Fandom Friday, which is supposed to be 5 Ways We Grew/Changed/Evolved in 2015 – because, let’s be honest, we haven’t changed in any major way that is worth writing about. And we prefer keeping the smaller things to ourselves. So, we decided to make it a list of our 5 Most Anticipated Books Of 2016.
This weeks 5 Fandom Friday had us wrecking our minds quite a bit. There’s only so many stories where the pets play that great a role. But we did it! So here we go:
