City of Bones (Reissue)
City of Bones (Reissue) | Cassandra Clare
Discover the world of the Shadowhunters in the first installment of the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and prepare to be hooked ("Entertainment Weekly") now with a gorgeous new cover, a map, a new foreword, and exclusive bonus content! "City of Bones "is a Shadowhunters novel. When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. And she s more than a little startled when the body disappears into thin air. Soon Clary is introduced to the world of the Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world and back to their own. And Clary is introduced with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a grotesque monster. How could a mere human survive such an attack and kill a demon? The Shadowhunters would like to know "

Afternoon snack time with my next book. One of my 2019 resolutions was to finish 5 series that I already owned. This will be number five. I‘ve read the first few books before but the rest have sat unread on shelves for years.

I just finished reading the first book (I read too many books at a time so it took awhile lol) I gotta say...interesting, not what I was expecting but good :) I hope I'm reading the in the right order though? There are a lot of books, so if I should be reading them a different way tell me now before I start the second book lol.

Genre: Fantasy Fiction & Adventure Fiction
Date started: September 12, 2019
Date Completed: November 12, 2019
How did you choose this book: This was the only book I have not read.
Write a brief summary of the novel; who was the protagonist; what was his/her problem and how was the problem resolved? Clary is the main protagonist and when she went to the Pandemonium Club in NYC she encountered a murder.

jash_v Clary was about to call the police, but she didn't because the body disappeared into thin air and the murderers cannot not be seen by anyone else. The murderers introduced themselves as Shadowhunters “a secret tribe of warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons.“ Within 24 hours, her mom disappeared and there was no clue of her whereabout. 3d

Today‘s Prompt

Sun Hat: choose a book with a vast universe/big setting.

City of Bones is just the start of a series with a vast universe. I can‘t wait to explore the rest. The picture is not mine. I found it on Google. I don‘t own a sun hat apparently. 😂😂😂

My monthly challenge was to read a book by an author that is new to me. I chose Cassandra Clare. I was really impressed by this book. So many people either really love it or really dislike it. Well I fell in the love it category. Was it full of YA tropes? Yes. Is it the greatest literary piece of the century? No. Was it a fun read? Absolutely, and that is all I asked of it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

MartinaLove I have never read The City of Glass series except from the first book, Harry Potter, The Infernal Devices or The Hunger Games. Almost everyone I see on social medias talk about these books but... I haven't read them. I need to read them, thought.🤷‍♀️ 5mo
BooknerdsLife Aww if you love this one you would enjoy the rest of the series more as her writing gets better with each book & her characters do grow on you (I‘m totally hooked by her characters)🤗 Personally l think The Infernal Devices is her best series! 5mo
RainyDayReading I‘m glad you enjoyed it! I fall into the ‘dislike‘ camp but that was only after slogging through the next two books. I didn‘t mind the first so much. But the rest....not for me haha. I hope you continue to enjoy! 5mo

Shel.f I keep meaning to read these... 5mo
BooknerdsLife @megzlynn OH I do know which ending you mean! And I do hope you keep reading it & not to give up...cause it does get frustrating & somewhat annoying at times too😆 but LOL it will get better & worth it 5mo

Ever since I finished The Red Scrolls of Magic I‘ve been wanting to reread the Mortal Instruments and I decided now would be the time. I also decided to read at least this one in Finnish as I‘m trying to read more translated books as well as books from the library and this checks both those boxes! #translatedbooks #shadowhunterchronicles #backtothebeginning

So far I'm not terribly impressed... a bit too heavy on the teen angsty tropes (plus a heroine constantly doing idiotic things, presumably to move the plot), but I find the concept interesting and I have the whole series, so I'll at least finish this book before I decide whether or not to bail on the series.

Alright, here we go! Starting over so I can read 4-6 of TMI. I read the first three so fast I don‘t really remember them. I‘ve been enjoying Book of Life, but I like having an easier book to read when I‘m feeling a little lazier 🙃 I also have a DC trip with my 8th graders this week, so there‘s a 10+ hour bus ride both ways to cover!

This book is well-loved by many and not at all by some—which reminds me how people told me how to dress ALL THE FREAKING TIME as a teen. Like every item I wore was up for discussion/criticism. Like maybe I *like* wearing bootie shorts, or a floral pattern tunic over striped leggings!😤

Point is, we have different tastes and that‘s not only okay but necessary for the survival of our species. 🔮🦎

“the young man blocking the doorway was a tall and thin as a rail, his hair a crown of dense black spikes. he was asian, with an elegantly high-cheekboned, handsome face, broad shouldered despite his slim frame. he was certainly dressed for a party, in tight jeans and a black shirt covered with dozens of metal buckles. his eyes were crusted with a raccoon mask of charcoal glitter, his lips painted a dark shade of blue.”

Bad, bad, bad!
A friend loaned me this book, telling me that I'd think it was great. Boy, was she ever wrong!
Terrible dialogue, poorly written, I had to force myself to get to the end. The 'shocking twist' was no surprise at all, and I just couldn't bring myself to care about such an annoying lead character, or any of the supporting characters (Luke wasn't terrible, to be fair).
I *definitely* won't be continuing the series.

Chelleo I hate when recommendations don‘t work out. Hope your next read is great! 8mo
Red.Reads Thanks @Chelleo I've got a huge list of others to work through, so I've no doubt I'll find one I love to counter balance it :) 8mo
