2018 Shadowhunter reread is still going well, really glad I'm doing this. This wasn't my favourite in the past, always felt like a filler. However, this time around, I appreciated it much more. I felt like I could see how much the story and characters developed in this book. Not my favourite, but I enjoyed it much more.
