Can you believe we’re almost done with City of Ashes??
For those just joining us, Stephanie over at Books in the Skye put together this year-long Shadowhunter read-a-long, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it. We started in April with The Infernal Devices, and we are now reading the second book in The Mortal Instruments (my favorite!).
Full details on the read-a-long, including the full schedule and where to find past posts, can be found here.
Each week, I will be answering a couple questions based on the assigned chapters. Then, at the end of the four weeks, we will host a live chat on Twitter and I’ll share a full review.
Here is the suggested reading schedule for City of Ashes:
- July 22-28: Prologue – Chapter 7
- July 29-Aug 4: Ch. 8-13
- Aug 5-11: Ch. 14-17
- Aug 12-18: Ch. 18 – Epilogue
This Week’s Questions
Q1. Valentine offered Jace a chance to save everyone he loves by joining him. We find out the Jace refuses his offers and chooses to fight along his friends than to join his dad to “guarantee their freedom.” Would you make the same choice?
A1. This is really difficult. However, if I truly believed it would guarantee their safety, then I would probably go with him.
Q2. Imogen is convinced that Valentine will trade Jace’s life for the mortal instruments even though Jace tells her his life if nothing compared to the sword. If you were Imogen would you be willing to trade Jace for something as important as the mortal sword?
A2. No. I would never be able to sacrifice someone…
What would your answers be? Let me know below, and keep an eye out for the live chat date announcement!
