~Synopsis from Goodreads
So I read this book over the week and I really enjoyed it. It was a collection of different stories about Magnus throughout his life as a warlock. We get a look at some of his past romances that are mentioned in TMI. We see his friendships grow and watch Magnus save the world all by himself. We also get to see what happens with him and Alec’s first date and Alec’s first birthday where they are together. Meaning there are so many Malec feels.
I loved these stories because Magnus is so sassy and precious. Like if I had a friend like Magnus I would be so happy. Like he is the perfect gay friend even though he’s not actually gay.
I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed it, but it just wasn’t the most amazing thing ever. But still read it because Magnus is amazing. I recommend it to anyone who likes TMI and TID. I recommend this to middle schoolers because there is no bad language or mature scenes. Seriously, read it.
Until Next Time,
