O.W.L. Readathon “Report Card”

This month, I’m participating in the O.W.L. Readathon, which was created and is hosted by the lovely booktuber Book Roast so check out the announcement video if you want to learn more!

To help keep track of what books I’m reading (and for picture options later), I’ve made this printable O.W.L. “report card” where you can write down what exams you’ve taken (books you’ve read) in different subjects, and if you passed (finished) them! If you are interested in joining, more information on what books are for each category can be found in the link to the rules in the description of the announcement video.

If you choose to use this, please make sure you credit me because I did spend time making it! If you are a bookstagrammer or want to take pictures, you can tag me @emiesnook on most platforms!

I’m going to post more about what I’m planning on reading this month for the O.W.L. Readathon in my next TBR Tuesday post, so make sure you check back!

Review: City of Heavenly Fire

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare18629142

Series: The Mortal Instruments #6

Published: May 27, 2014

Rating: 4.5/5

Goodreads

Shadowhunters and demons square off for the final showdown in the spellbinding, seductive conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell. Nothing in this world can defeat Sebastian—but if they journey to the realm of demons, they just might have a chance…

Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world will change. Who will survive the explosive sixth and final installment of the Mortal Instruments series?

NOTE: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR PREVIOUS BOOKS IN THE SERIES. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN PERIL.

Malec is the nearly 5 star rating on this book. I absolutely love those men. Their relationship and existence gives me life. I can’t wait to move on and read Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy as well as The Bane Chronicles, just to see more of them. I also love Maia and and Simon and Izzy, but the Magnus and Alec romance remains probably my all-time favorite Cassandra Clare romance (sorry Will and Tessa).

As always, Clary got on my nerves with some of her actions in this installment. While I love Clary and Jace as a couple, they really do act like dumb, angsty teenagers who seem to never learn from their mistakes. I mean, how many times can a fairy trick you before you figure out not to trust anything they say?

I originally read this series in middle school and was leery about how I would perceive the books when I binge reread them in preparation for reading The Dark Artifices. The Shadowhunter world remains one of my favorites *grumbles* even if The Mortal Instruments was a better trilogy. I really do love the epicness of the ending in City of Heavenly Fire, and can almost completely forgive the bleh-ness of City of Fallen Angels. I’m excited to read what Emma and the gang get up to in The Dark Artifices trilogy! I absolutely loved Emma and Julian and Mark and Tiberius and am excited I’ll be able to continue their story.

If you’re as much a Shadowhunter fan as I am, check out these bracelets I have listed in my Etsy Shop! (Or you can just admire this picture with the GORGEOUS 10th anniversary edition of City of Bones, originally posted on my insta @emiesnook.)

Blank 2018 Bookshelf – Free A5 Printable!

While I don’t always advertise it on here, I absolutely love to journal and plan. It’s so relaxing planning out your weeks and crossing items off! One of my favorite things is finding fun new printables for my Travelers Notebook (TN) and A5 planner.

I recently purchased “book planner” printables for both my journals, and really loved the blank bookshelf I could fill with the books I’ve read! Unfortunately, this layout didn’t come in the A5 size so I took to the internet to find a free printout, and ultimately wasn’t able to for this design. I ended up designing one myself and decided I may as well post it on the blog and share the love!

I’ve created two designs in this PDF, one with just “My 2018 Reads,” and one with this title as well as the months written out. This key can be used to color code what month a book was read if you so desire. I’ve also left a few blank spaces for those people that like drawing in their own little designs.

If you end up using this design, feel free to tag me in any pictures or posts! My Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook are all @emiesnook as well.

I’m offering this design for free rather than selling it on Etsy as a lot of other people do, so please be courteous (a like and a follow go a long way!). Feel free to use this for personal use, but do not resell or distribute this design as your own. I’ve included my name and blog url in small font in the bottom corner and would greatly appreciate it if you do not alter this. If you’d like to provide a link or share with others, please credit me (Emily from Emie’s Nook) with the original design and/or a link to this post.
