City of Bones by Cassandra Clare Review


If you follow me on twitter, you probably saw me do a huge gigantic face palm earlier in the week while reading this book.


Clary, the City of Bones' protag was totally annoying me to the point of burning the book! I was so annoyed By Cassandra Clare's book I considered demanding she change her name this instant from Cassandra. I found this book very hard to get into despite all the good things I have been hearing for years.  I found Clary Fray an annoying twit, Simon came off ass gay, Jace was arrogant but likeable and Alec was just my type lol. Clary's mom was just as unlikable as Her daughter and I wished they both got sucked into an inescapable portal to hell!

I mean really I was not sure what all the hype was over Immortal Instruments series. Clary was the kind of heroine I hate. Hard-headed, annoying, never listened, with people claiming she was smart but really she borders on too stupid to live and doesn't know how beautiful she really is blah blah. *shakes head* I was going to quit but fellow twitter-ers as, @darkartist (http://aworldofmakebelieve.blogspot.com/) said it got better, I doubted it. But, I am always willing to admit when I am wrong. SO I was wrong She was Right. Boooy did it get better! I read this book everywhere even at work. I do customer service at a grocery store so do you think I was attentive to my customers that day? I’m guessing no.

Jace is what every girl dreams of taming. He is hott and bad ass. He has a deep rooted seed of loyalty, honor and training almost rooted as deeply as his pain. I think I heard a collective YUM. He is tall, blond and sarcastic and here enters Clary, a mundane who can see him and his friends, bro and sis: Alec and Isabel (both equally hot).

Of course they buttheads with Clary. Adventure, jealousy and lurve ensue. Along with a plot twist that will have you going oh UH-UH EWL. Even though I saw the twist come a mile away I am not buying it. I know it is supposed to be the drive to make you keep reading the series but since I am not believing thus not buying what she is selling I am finding it hard to start the next book.

I guess I could read it to see how Ms Clare plans to un-do what she has done. I say read this book only if you are into twisty plots that keep on going.





Cheers,
Casse

this *may* post twice >.<
but i'm so glad you liked it in the end!!! actually all three books are kind of like that, in the maddening want-to-rip-the-pages-out-and-throw-it-against-the-wall kind of way... until you finish... and then you realise 'holy cow... that was amazing!!' and you suddenly have to read them again xD
