The Shadowhunter Season II was released, and I had to watch it immediately on Netflix. How many of you have seen it? You may have seen all the Tweets about it. I watched Emma’s discussion about what she liked and didn’t like about it, she talks fast, but I tend to agree with her. “It did not make sense to me!” I don’t remember Clary ever shapeshift into someone else by using a rune. I mean she is the queen of runes, she can do some pretty crazy things with them, but at this point, I don’t think she knew the extent of her powers yet. I should read the City of Ashes again. The movie, I find, is quite cheezy and if you are not familiar with the Shadowhunters from the books, then I think by watching the TV show alone, it will not give you a good background to know what is happening. It’s a shame really because Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunters deserves just as accurate a depiction as Harry Potter.

Season Two: Episode One-This Guilty Blood

The movie is supposedly loosely based on the City of Ashes and doesn’t stay faithful to the book at all and I don’t have time to compare the film with the books except the thing that stood out the most to me is inside the Institute. I pictured it as a dark dusty old building with lots of character with a cat named Church. NOT a modern dystopia with a ton of guards and people everywhere. That was weird.

What did you guys think about the show?
I like the characters enough, but honestly, I don’t believe they are as good as Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower or Lena Headey. In fact, I find the TV Show actually annoying.

And this guy? Victor Aldertree? What a dickhead

And that Bitch Maria?


I bought the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy because of the show I think. It is written from Simon’s POV. Simon doesn’t remember when he was a vampire or before that, because when he was in hell (for lack of a better word) in City of Heavenly Fire, Simon bartered with a demon to take his memories in which case he doesn’t remember his close shadow hunter friends either. The only way to get his memories back is to drink from the Mortal Cup apparently, so Simon enrolls in the Shadowhunter Academy and goes to Idris to train as a shadow hunter. He meets all kinds of characters. The short stories are easy enough but there are a lot of them, and I have yet to finish the book. Anyway, that’s all for this week guys! Stay tuned for Episode Two Season Two airing tomorrow either on Freeform or Netflix for those of us who live in Canada.

    I’m kinda curious about this show even though I’ve never read the books. I like the concept of it and I suppose if I’m going to netflix it I should read the books first, to get the full experience. It looks interesting from the snippets you put up.


    1. Jackie says:

      You can watch the show but definitely read the books . Thanks for the nice compliment!


  2. Megan McDade says:

    I didn’t finish season one of shadow hunters but I do want to finish it, as season two looks a bit better.


    1. Jackie says:

      You can watch them at your leisure. I sorta binge watched the first season. I like it when I can watch one after another, it’s more interesting, as opposed to having to wait a week or a year! I tend to lose interest and I’m thinking about Game of Thrones. Gosh. I enjoyed the first 4 seasons one after another until I had to wait :/


  3. We have owned Netflix for years, but only recently have my husband and I have begun looking at shows there. I will look up this series!


    1. Jackie says:

      If you watch it let us know what you think. The thing I like most about Netflix is there are no commercials! Thanks for leaving a comment. Enjoy your day.


  4. I’m always not sure what to think when I see movie or tv adaptations of my favorite books! If it doesn’t change the spirit of the book I don’t tend to mind too much but I can see where the change of the institute would be unsettling. Overall this does sound promising though. I’ll have to check it out. Have a great week.


    1. Jackie says:

      Yes and I really like the Mortal Instruments . Have you read the books?


  5. Deborah says:

    I’ve not watched Shadowhunters but now have Netflix so might try it at some point. I’ve got so many other things to catch up on though it might take a while!


  6. Maria Behar says:

    Heck, I had NO idea this show was on Netflix! Gotta go look it up!

    I’ve only read the first book, so I do need to continue with this series. My favorite character so far is Simon, and I really wish Clary had a relationship with him instead!

    Thanks for sharing!

    This is my first time participating in this meme! It’s great to meet a fellow YA fiction fan! You can check out my post @ A Night’s Dream of Books. Happy. New Year!! 😄


    1. Jackie says:

      Your welcome! Thanks for visiting and sharing. I love your enthusiasm and I hope you find it on Netflix too!


  7. I watched a few episodes of the show last season, but I wasn’t a huge fan. Maybe I should give it another shot.


    1. Jackie says:

      Read the books. They are better. IMO
