Shadowhunter Saturdays

I have finally collated all the Shadowhunter Saturday posts to make them easier to find and bring new comers (welcome) up to speed.

What Is Shadowhunter Saturdays?

Ellie (Read to Ramble) and I have decided to undertake the mammoth task to read all the books in Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunters Chronicles. Its a daunting task we have 14 novels to read with 4 more on the way, not to mention the companion short story collections. So the aim is over the next, lets face it, couple of years we aim to work our way through these, pausing on some Saturdays to share posts on thoughts about the books, series and the whole realm of shadow-hunters in general.

Reading Order?!?

With such a large universe and several series to choose from you can find all kinds of debate as to what is the best way to read these books. Do we read them in publication order, Series order, chronologically by events/setting? Ellie and I got down to some research and decided to stick with the suggested order by Cassandra Clare herself! We came across this order in a port by Riveted which gives options of all different reading orders.

We will be reading the books as follows:
