We are Dust and Shadows || Playlist

“They say you cannot love two people equally at once,” she said. “And perhaps for others that is so. But you and Will—you are not like two ordinary people, two people who might have been jealous of each other, or who would have imagined my love for one of them diminished by my love of the other. You merged your souls when you were both children. I could not have loved Will so much if I had not loved you as well. And I could not love you as I do if I had not loved Will as I did.”


Despite my enormous TBR, I recently decided to reread The Infernal Devices trilogy. This series will forever be on top of the list of books that made me cry ugly tears, so I cannot understand for the life of me why I decided to torture myself again! Last time I read Clockwork Princess, I spent the following days in an almost drunken stupor, questioning my existence while bawling my eyes out. Needless to say, a box of tissues was not enough.

The beautiful thing about this trilogy is that it captures all variations of emotions, from pure bliss to the deepest sorrows. I guess this is the reason why these characters reside so close to my heart, because their story evoked a multitude of feelings and memories that  awakened my slumbering soul.  I am not a fan of love triangles, but these books are so well written that they bring into sharp relief a beautiful and realistic relationship between three complex characters, all of whom you end up rooting for. The relationship between Tessa, Will and Jem is so delightful to read about, so intricate and pure. In fact it is this heart-wrenching love for each other that compelled me to make a playlist, a compilation of songs that will forever make me cry every time I listen to them! I do hope you enjoy it!
