    All right, so when we last left our creepy incestuous couple, Draco had just found out his dad was Voldemort, not Lucius Malfoy. Clarmione also found out that Draco was her brother, so that hot makeout session they'd had partway through the first book was now kind of icky, and fur...

    I'm beginning to understand why people prefer Jace Wayland to Edward Cullen. I have to OH SNAP the ending. Is it March yet? I want City of Glass NOW. I'm beginning to understand why people prefer Jace Wayland to Edward Cullen. I have to OH SNAP the ending. Is it Mar...

    This book cost me around 600 dollars. When I'm traveling to and from conventions, I use the airplane time to catch up on my reading. A lot of times this means I'm taking the opportunity to read books that have been popular for a while, but that I haven't gotten aroun...

    I didn't go online, hardly talked, didn't eat (ok so I did eat), didn't watch TV just so I could finish this book. So basically I spent the whole day reading and I'm just bursting at the seams to read the next one. The tension in the book is so great that you fee...

    "That when he thought, really thought, about the fact that he might never get to kiss Clary again, he wanted to die or hurt or bleed so badly he?d go up to the attic and train alone for hours until he was so exhausted he had no choice but to pass out, exhausted." Oh for ...

    1.) City of Bones ??? ?You are an arrow shot directly into the heart of the Clave, Jace. You are Valentine?s arrow. Whether you know it or not.? I recently did a poll on Twitter, asking people if I should continue on with this series, or just throw in the to...

    Well that was awkward. *** SPOILERGRAM*** But before we head down the path of outrageous incest, I will say that City of Ashes was better than City of Bones. The pace was an improvement on that of the latter. Simon was still awesome as ever. I also felt that Ms Clare branched out...

    I can't do it. I just can't. Screw this series. My problem with this series isn't the writing. I'm not one to judge books by the writing since I am pretty terrible at it myself. My problem also isn't exactly the story, which I probably could like. Sor...

    John no longer uses this account. I have no patience for this bullshit any longer. There are many ways to state an opinion that is in disagreement with this review, and so far, many of you have FAILED to do so. I will no longer tolerate disparaging comments. Rethink them if you don&apo...

    Picking up where 'City of Bones' left off, 'City of Ashes' doesn't waste any time before plunging you right back into this supernatural world. This book was packed with action and adventure. With ever-changing information and plenty of teenage angst, this cast ...

    For the love of God! Will someone kill Valentine already? He's getting on my last nerve! Okay here I am having read the second book again. I have one more to go and then I will be reading the ones I haven't read yet. As I was going along I could remember it so that&apo...

    I really enjoyed this book. There are parts of the book that are brilliant, then then there are parts that are just ok. The main reason I could not give this book 5 stars is parts of seemed rushed (if that is possible in a 411 page book). The book is divided into 3 sections. In the ...

    4 Family Matters Stars Spoilers Short and sweet so I can get to the next book. Wow City of Ashes was action packed and full of teenage angst. And I loved it! I feel this book focused a lot on Simon and all the changes that happen to him. I liked seeing the character grow...

    I guess 9th times the charms because I loved this book way more than I ever had. I think in my adolescence, I spent a lot of my time comparing City of Ashes to other books in the series. This reread, I viewed this story as an individual entity, which allowed me to better appreciate the...

    Reread: January, 2016 1st Read : July, 2014 This series continues to amaze me! I loved it the first time I read it and even gets better the second time around. There are lots of crazy and hilarious moments in this installment. The characters are all engaging and the way they intera...

    4.5 STARS ?? I keep sitting down to write a full (read-long) review of this book because I enjoyed it so much, but I struggle so hard on writing my thoughts for sequels in a long running series. I know I'm not supposed to include spoilers in them (even though this book is o...

    2019: 4.5/5 stars. It was a fun read. My opinion hasn?t changed since the last time I read the book- Simon, I love you <3 In addition, I must point out that I am really not a fan of Clace. They annoy me, especially in this book. Too bad most of the book was around them. I couldn&...

    *i just realized how most of the main character kids have nicknames... also Clary is legitimately so overly dramatic. and can the book stop talking about how fucking handsome Jace supposedly is?? this book felt kinda messy in a way (that was definitely not the right word) where thin...

    ? 1 / 5 stars - DNF @ 39% I?m done. I couldn?t continue it. This is too boring and some characters are super annoying especially Clary and Jace. I found no reason why I should love these two although they are two main characters of the series. I almost DNF it once since 1/5 of...

    Warning ?: This book may give you a headache. Mind you, not just any headache. I-want-to-bang-my-head-against-a-wall kind of headache. Being stuck in traffic, slow Wi-Fi, freezing laptop/phone, noisy neighbours and screaming children annoy the shit out of me. That was before I ...
