As I am sure we all know, there is only FOUR DAYS LEFT until City of Lost Souls is released. I know I am not the only one to pre-order my copy already. So the question many people have thrown my way is “What am I supposed to for the longest four days of my life since The Clockwork Prince release?” Well I have good news, I have an answer! I know some of these have been shared here before, but they are so great you need to hear them again. Some of course are new and exciting things you may not have thought of yet. Are you ready for your crash course in passing time, the TMIFandom way?
1. Re-read the series.
You may be saying, “Now hold up, four books in four days? This is TMI, not Harry Potter! We don’t have magic.” Okay good point. Around four hundred pages a day is a lot to ask. Here is what you can do. Today, pick up City of Bones. Read the first chapter, three of your favorite chapters from the middle, and the last chapter. Tomorrow, rinse, and repeat with City of Ashes and so on. This will get you in a mood to read our newest piece of gold when it is released.
Google the plot for all of the first four books individually. This will remind you of the little subplots and the big details that you need to remember in order to understand CoLS completely.
3. Fan Fiction
Get your butt on that site if you haven’t already! Look, I will make it easy: http://www.fanfiction.net . Now you have no excuse not to read how fans think it all goes behind the scenes.
4. Rune it up!
Get creative! Whether it is drawing a new one on your arms each day, doing your nails to give you strength, or making cards for friends with the ones they need on them, just do something. It will remind you of your appreciation for the series and put it in the front of your mind.
I hope that all of these help you in your journey to survive the next four days!
