Book Review: What To Buy The Shadowhunter that Has Everything by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan


The 8th novella in The Bane Chronicles 

Published in 2013

Rating: 5/5

Pages: 40

Sypnosis from Goodreads:

Magnus Bane may or may not be dating Alec Lightwood, but he definitely needs to find him the perfect birthday present.

Set in the time between City of Ashes and City of Glass, warlock Magnus Bane is determined to find the best birthday present possible for Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter he may or may not be dating. And he’s also got to deal with the demon he’s conjured up for a very irritating client.

My Thoughts:


Oh this novella was honestly perfection, it brought back a lot of memories from the Mortal Instruments series, and was full of Malec feels. They are one of my all time favourite ships and I loved reading about Magnus’s thoughts and feelings about Alec, and his utter desperation to find him something for his birthday, even though he has no idea what. The first line in this book made me snort with laughter, that’s right, snort! It involved Magnus and Chairman Meow, it was just fabulous, hilarious and relatable. I loved the constant wit in this one as well, and there was an amazing and touching scene with Isabelle and Magnus.

All in all this was yet another perfect novella in this collection. 

Have a great weekend and happy reading,
