Now the fate of the world rests on Clary’s shoulders, but can she master her new-found powers and control her feelings for a boy who can never be hers?

I decided to both these books in the same post because I'd just gush about how amazing they are in two, so I might as well squish it into one! Seriously, I didn't expect to love them as much as I did.

Cassandra Clare is a genius. Her writing is beautiful, her characters are fabulous (especially Jace!) and the plot kept me enveloped in the world of demons, vampires and werewolves throughout. Fantastic. I really can't put into words how much I loved this but I'll try.

I finished City of Bones last night and started City of Ashes straight after even though it was 11pm and I had college today. I took it with me today and read it at every available moment and when I got home, read it until I finished it a couple of hours ago.

I cannot wait for City of Glass, it's going to be amazing. It's just a shame I have to wait until JULY! So far away! But anyway, everybody who hasn't already, needs to read this amazing series right now!



  1. haha, that sounds like me when I read it. I did not sleep for 2 nights. They just grab ahold of you...

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed them. They are indeed amazing! And Jace... ahh, Jace. I hope CoG has lots of J/C scenes!

    I can't wait 'til it's released... not long to go now!

  3. Fabulous reviews - you've really made me want to read them! I've heard so many good things about these books.


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
