Today is the New York Times Bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments Cassandra Clare’s birthday! Translated into over 34 languages with a plethora of international covers and 50 million copies sold worldwide, The Mortal Instruments is the first series in the iconic Shadowhunter Chronicles that has since grown to include over 30 books and graphic novels. To celebrate her birthday, let’s take a look at some of Clare’s best quotes. Some of them will make you laugh out loud and some of them will inspire you, while others will break your heart, but we can all agree that they will make you want to read (or re-read) the books.
Having just finished her latest book, Chain of Iron, I have decided to use my limited romantic knowledge to tackle romantic tropes that appear and how the various series handle them. There are spoilers aplenty to come.
