Character Spotlight #5 || February 11

Hello everybody! I’m finally getting back on track with my blogging schedule and I have so many posts planned for the future. But, for today, I am giving you guys the “Character Spotlight” post that I missed last week. And this one is a really exciting one because I have finally chosen to do one of these posts on a boy! So far, all I have written about are girls but, I finally finished City of Glass by Cassandra Clare and I really wanted to write about one character this week. Can anyone guess what character that is

It is not Magnus Bane.

It is not Jace Wayland.

It is not Simon Lewis.

So, that only leaves one guy left. ALEC LIGHTWOOD!

Matthew Daddario stars as Alec Lightwood on Freeform‘s adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s books, Shadowhunters. 

Alec

Alec is one of the bravest characters I have ever read about. He is always up for any challenge and isn’t afraid to show his love for Magnus Bane, the high warlock of Brooklyn. Before I get into details about him, I just want to say that Alec is probably one of the most inspiring characters that anyone could read about. He isn’t scared to share his feelings for loved ones and that’s what i really like about him.

Physical Appearance:

All of the Lightwoods have been known for their dark hair and bright blue eyes. So, of course, Alec and his siblings (Isabelle and Max) received their Lightwood genes from their parents, Maryse and Robert Lightwood. Alec is also known for being very tall and slender. Like seriously, he’s 6 foot. Totally unfair seeing that I’m a whole foot shorter than him.


Personality:

Alec is….. hard to explain. He has one of those really stubborn boyish attitudes that can be very ignoring. When you first meet Alec in City of Bones, you learn how ignorant he is towards Clary. He was always rude to her and never trusted her. But, as shone in City of Glass, the longer Alec knows someone, the more trust he has in them.


Alec is one of the major characters starring in Cassandra Clare’s “The Mortal Instruments” phenomenon. He has brought inspiration and embracement all over the world. With this character, people have become brave enough to express their true selves. Kevin Zegers plays Alec in the 2013 movie adaptation of the first book and Matthew Daddario  plays him in Freeform’s addaptation of the whole series called Shadowhunters.

If you have read The Mortal Instruments, answer down below who your favorite character is.

Happy Reading!

Character Spotlight #4 || January 28

Hello everybody! I’m terribly sorry that I haven’t been able to work on blog posts recently. These past two weeks have been quite busy for me with school and once I got home everyday, all I wanted to do was sit and read. But, Last night, I made time and was finally able to watch the first three episodes. They were all amazing. My reviews on those episodes will hopefully go up on Monday or Wednesday. I also have a tag going up soon. My friend Pearl tagged me to do the Rip it or Ship it tag a really long time ago and I’ve done all of the work for it. All I have to do is actually write the post. There is also a very special post going up tomorrow so stay tuned. Now, without further ado, let’s get into this post.

This week’s character is Bethany Williams from the Lux series. And yes, I do realize that all of the characters I’ve picked are girls.

lux

Bethany – well actually her name is Elizabeth, she just prefers to go by Bethany – is a strong hearted and genuine character from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. She is featured the most in Shadows (Lux 0.5), mentioned in Obsidian, Oblivion and Onyx and is a main character in Opal, Origin and Opposition. She may not have a super big role in the Lux series but she sure is a characters that readers of the Lux series will love.


Physical appearance:

The only part in the books that explained what Bethany looked like was a line from Shadows. As you think about this line, think about Dawson picturing this in his mind: “The way this girl’s elfin features were pieced together was absolute perfection. Chocolate-colored hair slid over her shoulders. Her skin held a healthy glow from being out in the sun a lot. Finely groomed eyebrows set off tilted eyes framed with heavy lashes. Warm brown eyes connected with his.”


Personality: 

Bethany is an inexplicably genuine person and is extremely nice. She is also a very happy person, as you find out in Shadows. She is also very kind and wouldn’t think twice about helping someone in need.


Bethany moved to Ketterman, West Virginia even before Katy. And she did the exact mistakes as Katy did with Daemon. But instead of Daemon, she did them with his twin brother, Dawson. She fell for him and that caused her to learn about the Lux species and being taken to Mount Weather with Dawson. A year later, Katy moves to Ketterman only to find posters of Bethany. And then she does the same mistakes as Bethany. By book 4, Origin, Bethany and Katy have talked to each other about their experiences at Mount Weather. Katy is the only “hybrid” that Beth knows so they created a pretty steady relationship between each other.


Happy Reading!
