The Mortal Instrument (The Mortal Instruments #1-4)
City of Bones
When 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 odd markings. This is Clary’s first mee...more

So this is a review for the series as a whole not even a review just a biased suck ass opinion. Now some are like 5 stars for a whole series c'mon? I can't help it that I'm absolutely in love with this series. There's people who hate it and people who love it. I don't care what anyone says these books are my babies with all their faults and arrogant assholes.
I love the world that Mrs. Clare created every single of piece of it. I lov ...more
The series reads like a story written by a 14 year old girl who wants to be a writer when she grows up. The plotting, the structure, the strong Mary Sue of the lead female character, there are some interesting ideas but nothing seems well thought out or at minimum well planned out.
In terms of writin ...more
To start off, as the series goes on, Clare starts switch point of view more and more until it's almost impossible to keep up with the characters because it's a different one every three or so pages. And what Clare lacked in this series, with point of views, is that each character is supposed to have their own personality and way of thinking. Unfortunate ...more
There are characters like Isabelle Lightwood, who believe every story or fable is true but does not hold to any given religion. I would guess that to be most of the other characters. Then there is Simon, a shy boy, whose fir ...more
i just fell in love with this book! The whole shadowhunters thing was awesome (can't wait for the movie to come out).

I’ve been meaning to read this book for a long time. A friend of my daughter’s raved about it. The cover pulled me in, but I had so many other books to read that it got pushed aside. Then the movie came out. I hate to watch a movie and then read the book, but...This time it worked ou ...more
#1: The "heroine" has no priorities. Her mother is possibly dead, and she seems more worried about Jace! Ugh, I absolutely hate it.
#2: She is about as useful as Bella Swan. She can do absolutely nothing, and is the one getting saved 24/7. Pathetic.
#3: The plot twists are so predictable. As soon as Jace appeared in the book, I knew he was going to be related. I mean, COME ON CASSANDRA, anyone who has read anything WORTH READ ...more
I really enjoyed reading this book. It has great descriptions and it is an easy read. I do feel that this book almost was the same as the Harry Potter series, but was unique in its own way. In this series, the main character does not know that she has The Sight or has blood of The Clave, just like Harry not knowing he was a wizard. Also, the main character, Clary, has gotten involved with this unknown mythical world and fell in love with it. Clary also does not k ...more
This series must be read in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to read City Of Ashes to find out what happens next!
Clary is just an ordinary girl who is an exceptional artist just like her mother. Her best friend is a guy named Simon who is in a band. She never knew her (dead)father but her mom's best friend Luke has always been there for her. She leads an ordinary (if boring) life until she starts seeing people in the club Purgatory that noone else can. Is ...more
Gosh. DON'T MIND ME GUYS JUST FEELING ALL THE FEELS HERE. With this book, with this entire series for that matter, just dint know where to start. Let me just start off by saying I LOVE LOVE LOVE Cassie's writing and work. I love how attentive she is the characters, plot, and detail. She describes everything so perfectly, I ca ...more
