I hope you are having a great day!

City of Bones

(The Mortal Instruments #1)

by Cassandra Clare

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. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars


This was one of the first books series that I read when I first got back into reading and at the time I really enjoyed it but now that I have read other books and have experienced more types of writing, it is no longer my top favorite series, but it will always have a place on my book shelves [yes book shelves, I have many.].

Now that I have re-read the series after not for so long, I was really confused, there was just a lot of information to learn and remember and there were so many characters that came and went, confused 2 of the characters for a hot minute, so a re-read was needed.

But other than that I really enjoyed the series, and I love the fact that there are so many different series attached to this one like, how have the author’s fingers not fallen off yet!?

Have a great week!
