Ode to the Shadowhunters

Hello, lovelies! The title of this post might be kind of very random, so let me just explain to you what I am trying to say here. The following is what one would call…a shadowhunter.


A shadowhunter is a mythical creature of extraordinary amazing-ness who protects us measly human creatures from the really cool and powerful badass culprits of the world – you know, the usual mix of vampires, werewolves, warlocks, blah blah blah. A shadowhunter has angel blood in their lineage, which makes them uber amazing, even more so. If you haven’t read about the shadowhunters, or even heard about them, I don’t know where you’ve been living. It is sacrilege to be ignorant about our saviors! The one you see on the left is Isabelle Lightwood, one of the Shadowhunters from the Lightwood family, kickass beauty queen, and hilarious yet sexy dialogue ensues when she’s around. She’s got a whip, and she does not hesitate to strike. To know more about her, go read thy book.


Ahem. So there you go. The Shadowhunters are all characters carefully and wittily crafted by one Queen of Snark Cassandra Clare, who is, simply put, the most genius writer I have ever encountered (in a parallel universe, she and I are friends!

What is the point of this post?

I was recently going through all of Clare’s books on my shelf, and this sudden wave of nostalgia and longingness hit me, you know? I missed her world and her characters, and I wanted to go back into it. “Calm down, Madiha,” you might say. “She’s publishing another series in the same world…jeez.” Calm down? Calm. Down?! Fool! (No, no, I love you all). I cannot WAIT. Clare is taking her time, biding it, and will publish when we hopeless minions least expect (actually March 8th, 2016, but who can wait that long?). So with the extra anxiety of losing my beloved Shadowhunters, I went ahead and decided to make YOU GUYS READ THE BOOKS! And then you can be tortured right alongside me for the wait. Its sad to see baby characters grow up and leave you when their lives are finally in order :’) So I gathered and designed a few quotes that will make you instantly love everyone in the Mortal Instruments series, which is where you must start this epic and snarky journey. Feel free to download the iPhone wallpapers and enjoy if you’re already a TMI fan!

Which one of the wallpapers did you like best? Are you going to give the Shadowhunters a try, or are you already a sordid lover of the series?

    • Haha, thanks so much, Poulami 😉 I’m so envious of you, I remember while I was reading the series, I was so immersed the only thing that could get me out was the book ending.

  1. Rebeqa Mikhailon

    Hahaha wow, those quotes are hilarious! And the designs are stunning, you are very gifted. I haven’t read it but I have read her Iron Trials, so looking forward to this one.

    • Aw, Rebeqa, thanks! I try my best 😉 You can attribute the hilarity of the quotes to none other than Ms. Cassandra Clare herself – I haven’t read the Iron Trial, but I’m sure with both Black and Clare, you must have had a blast.

    • She sure does – I agree, though, The Clockwork Princess was a much more emotionally draining read, and I guess the snark level of TMI was higher, which is why I chose quotes from those books in the first place. All hail Cassie Clare, Queen of Snark 😉

  2. *raises hand and waves it wildly* I AM A SOLID LOVER OF THIS SERIES. I AM! I AM!! And I’m a million percent glad that Cassandra Clare is the kind of author who’ll write a TON of books for her adoring fans to devour. :’) Like some authors write a trilogy and they’re done and then WE ALREADY HAVE LIKE 10+ SHADOWHUNTER BOOKS AND WE GET MOOORE SQUEEEEE. (Or 11? I haven’t read the Simon novellas yet. XD I’m waiting until they’re all combined in one book *nods*) But seriously she is one of my all time favourite authors. :’) So clearly you have epic reader taste!! HAHA. AHEM. I love your wallpapers! I OUGHT TO GET AN IPHONE SO I CAN USE THEM. *adds it to to-do-list*

    • YES! YES SORDID LOVER HELLO I’ve been waiting! Haha, I know, I LOVE that she’s not stopping anytime soon 😛 A LOT of people seem to have so many problems with that though, I don’t know WHY *glares at them* we love Shadowhunters leave us BE OKAY?!!! Simon novellas? What sort of HORRIBLE fangirl AM I? I had no idea Simon was getting his own novellas. Must. Go. Google. *salutes* thanks for the tip, Cait!

    • Aw, thanks so much, Aila! Hahaha, its alright, I understand why a lot of people might not overly be obsessed with Clare (like me XD) but it means a lot for you to appreciate the quotes just the same!

  3. These look so pretty, Madiha! I love the colour palette especially 😀

    I haven’t read any of Clare’s books, mainly because there are SO MANY! A classic case of ‘so many books, so little time’ lol

    • Thanks so much, Fahima! You MUST find time for hers; I agree the sheer number is DAUNTING to say the least, and there’s the whole problem of not being able to stop once you’ve started, but hey, I’m sure you’ll love it and thank me later 😉
