Favorite Polarizing Books

-These are books that people either tend to love or hate, with no in between. Pick some of your favorites that fall into this category.

I must start with saying that I found it hard to find books for this weeks T5W. I only have one book series and not 5 books because I didn’t know what to pick. 

The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

This series is a very popular young adult urban fantasy series. A lot of people either love this series or hate it. It has gotten a lot of praise, but also a lot of criticism for being problematic and bad writing.

I want to say this series isn’t my favorite fantasy series of all time, but I had a lot of fun reading it. I especially liked the authors other series set in the same world; The Infernal Devices. I love the world of the Shadowhunters, and I love the characters (or some of them). I’ll continue reading the authors books set in the Shadowhunter world.

  1. I love the Mortal Instruments! I was really impressed by Clare’s characters and her world-building. And I am a HUGE fan of Mangus Bane haha. This series was one of my favorites when I was in high school, although I think I prefer The Infernal Devices over it now. Also, Lady Midnight is an improvement over the original series too!


    1. Magnus is life haha. I also prefer The Infernal Devices, and I’m really looking forward to read Lady Midnight. I bought a copy of LM last year when it came out, I need to read it haha.
