Book Review/Rave – City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

22 Jul


This book is easily one of my favorites. Read on!


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. . . .

I can not say enough good things about this book.

It’s got a guy who is really attractive, and knows it. This leads him to be really sarcastic, but not in a trying-too-hard way.

Everything Jace said was hilarious and, well, amazing. What, you don’t believe me?!? Here’s one of many quotes that I love from him…


Here’s him being full of himself –                                       “Can I help you with something?”
Clary turned instant traitor against her gender. “Those girls on the other side of the car are staring at you.”
Jace assumed an air of mellow gratification. “Of course they are,” he said, “I am stunningly attractive.”

And you might be thinking, “wow, he’s a jerk who thinks he’s hot.” and that would be true…. if it weren’t for the fact that Clary doesn’t take any of his crap. He says stuff like “i’m stunningly attractive” but it doesn’t come across as shallow.

I have read (almost) all of the books in this series, the mortal instruments. I would have to say I love every book in it.

Cassandra Clare is a genius to me. Everything she writes seems to be just sarcastic enough, just full-of-action enough, and just romantic enough. And she definitely knows how to make you, the reader, go through every emotion you know of (and some you don’t)

This book, this series, get’s a 5/5 and a hugeeee recommendation from me. Try it! and if you find you don’t like it, read it again because I don’t understand how that’s possible!

This series has landed on my Favorites list.


Thanks for reading!
