Recently, I’ve been rereading The Infernal Devices for the millionth time. I’ve been going through with flags, marking each and every one of my favorite moments, so I can share them with my mom, who will be borrowing the series soon.
(We’ve been watching Shadowhunters on TV, and she wants to read TMI and TID)
Reliving this series again has brought back so many feelings and emotions (SO. MANY.). Some of you may know that I honestly suck with expressing emotion with words, so I’ll oftentimes assign different songs to different feelings or events. I do the same with books and characters. Since I’ve been mostly rereading TID, I don’t really have any new reviews to share, so I thought it’d be fun to share a bit of my playlist for TID. I’ve poured through this list, editing and tweaking it multiple times, trying to get it perfect. Buuuuuutttt… TID gives me so many feelings that it’s a bit difficult to contain that into a playlist. Some of the songs I’ve included might contain some vague thematic spoilers, so tread carefully. I’ll mark some of my favorites with an asterisk (*).
“Oh, you’re in my veins and I cannot get you out
Oh, you’re all I taste at night inside of my mouth”
“If I could, then I would
I’ll go wherever you will go”
“He doesn’t make your knees weak
He’s beautiful and bleak”
“But I’m holding you closer than most
‘Cause you are my heaven”
“Wake up, it’s time, little girl, wake up
Just remember who I am in the morning”
“Darling don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more”
“You’ve got a warm heart, you’ve got a beautiful brain
But it’s disintegrating from all the medicine”
“Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?”
“I don’t have a choice, but I’d still choose you
I don’t love you, but I always will”
“Keep your blue eyes away from me
I’m mesmerized, fire and ice”
“I’d like to help you suffer less, not be so locked up in your thoughts
Afraid of love and all under the sun”
“You gave it all, gave into the call
You took a chance and you took a fall for us”
“Don’t care what is written in your history
As long as you’re here with me”
And if you really feel like kicking up the feels and ugly crying… These next few are more spoiler-y than the others!
“Please, don’t be sad now, I really believe
You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me”
“I loved, and I loved, and I lost you
And it hurts like hell”
“Where have you gone? How, how how?
I just need to know that you won’t forget about me”
