"Waiting on" Wednesday: The Shadowhunter's Codex

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which showcases books we can’t wait to get our hands on.
What I'm waiting on this week...

The Shadowhunter's Codex
Publication Date: October 29, 2013
The Shadowhunter's Codex by Cassandra Clare and Joshua Lewis

Delve into the details of all things Shadowhunter with this illustrated guide to the knowledge and lore of the Shadowhunter world.Since the thirteenth century, the Shadowhunter’s Codex has been the one and only manual for Shadowhunters looking to brush up on their demon languages, learn proper stele use, and discover just what exactly a pyxis is. Featured in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, this guide is a necessity for any young Nephilim on their journey to becoming a Shadowhunter. Beautifully illustrated, the Codex contains images of the famous Shadowhunter homeland of Idris, as well as depictions of demons and other Downworlders.

But this isn’t just any copy of The Shadowhunter’s Codex. It’s Clary’s copy, and as an artist herself, she’s sketched pictures of her friends and family in the book, and scrawled helpful advice in the margins. Of course, she couldn’t exactly stop Jace or Simon from adding their thoughts either. Part encyclopedia, part history, part training manual—complete with commentary from Shadowhunters who have seen it all—this beautiful guide is a perfect supplement to the #1 New York Timesbestselling series.

I have a deep and ever-burgeoning love for the Mortal Instruments and have for several years. The Infernal Devices, I've followed from before the first one even came out. That being so, it's pretty obvious that I NEED TO BE A SHADOWHUNTER. The only way I'll achieve that is if I know the rules and stuff. If I had this, I could just open my side-table drawer and pull out my handy dandy Shadowhunter Codex! And then I'd blue-scadoo into the Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices knowing everything I need to.

If you follow or comment, leave a link to your blog so I can visit and reciprocate. It might take a me a few days, but it'll happen!
