Milking The Cow

Hello guys! How are you doing today? It's a lovely Saturday here in Argentina. It won't last much though, cause I have finally decided to go out tonight. That means that a tornado, avalanche and tsunami will hit my city soon. 

Onto more interesting things, I found out the other day that Cassandra Clare is coming out with a 10th anniversary edition of City of Bones. And I thought "haven't you had enough?" So today, we're talking about how I think Cassie is just milking the cow right now.

I used to be a HUGE fan of the whole shadowhunters world, I read the first 5 TMI books and all three of TID. In fact, I still watch the TMI movie when it's on tv and I'm on season 2 of Shadowhunters. So don't tell me that I haven't experienced the world or whatever other crap. I just think that after so many books, it's time for a change. 

I want to do an inventory of what CC has launched related to TMI/TID/TDA:

  • The Mortal Instruments (6 books) (3 different editions) (+Movie Tie-in and Show Tie-in)
  • The Infernal Devices (3 books) (2 different editions)
  • The Dark Artifices (2/3 books so far)
  • Infernal Devices: Manga Series (3 volumes)
  • Tales From The Shadowhunters Academy
  • The Bane Chronicles
  • The Shadowhunters Codex
  • The Mortal Instruments Coloring Book
  • Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader
  • An Illustrated History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld
  • The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (movie)
  • Shadowhunters (TV-show)
  • 2 official apps (Shadowhunters & Emoji Keyboard)
  • A whole selection of official merchandise

PLUS 10th Anniversary Edition of City of Bones (Nov 2017) AND The Mortal Instruments: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1 (Oct. 2017.) As if that wasn't enough, on her website you can find The Last Hours, an upcoming trilogy that follows the characters from The Infernal Devices (2018.) 

Do you see what I mean?

You've created a fantastic world, Cassie, no one will deny that. But don't you think that coming up with more and more books set in it is a bit... tiring? I would love to see you create something completely different. 

*disclaimer: I know she has the Iron Trials but that's middle grade*

Anyway, those are my feelings today. I'll update you on the climate around here ;)

Do you still read CC's books? Which is your favorite character? Mine's probably Magnus.
