i am two books away on finishing this series and i have to say this one will be my favorite...
so Plague the book title speak for itself the FAYZ has bi am two books away on finishing this series and i have to say this one will be my favorite...
so Plague the book title speak for itself the FAYZ has been attacked by a mysterious plague that is killing all the mutant kids one by one.
the book is filled with blood,gore and graphic violence, which the whole series is known for. but this time it seems really different cause i get to see the characters in this book in a whole new light, and they are progressing in a way that shocked me.
the booked wrapped up with a plot that really keeps me going and would want me to keep on reading the entire seriea until the end. yeah....! let's go find out what will happen to the kids of FAYZ....more
what can I say? The last book of the infernal devices blew me away. a lot of things just happened in this bhurrah!!! my first book for the year 2014.
what can I say? The last book of the infernal devices blew me away. a lot of things just happened in this book. a mixture of drama,romance,magic and a lot lot more.
this book was written really well, I enjoyed every single page of it. and I really admire cassie clare's writing, on how she showed not just romantic love but also a love for your friends and family. she showed such vivid strong emotions each character held that made me emphatize with each character, the twist is just really unexpected.
this book was a great energy booster to start my year right.! another book series that ended well. I will surely miss William, James and Tessa....more
I was actually a bit skeptical of reading this book, cause first of all i have read two booksOriginally posted @ The YA Bookworm
Rating 4.5 stars
I was actually a bit skeptical of reading this book, cause first of all i have read two books with the same concept (Paranormalcy and The Darkest Powers) and I am not a huge fan of the both series, cause everything about those two books are very cheezy and ver chick lit-ish just thinking of Evie makes my eyes roll (haha!)i was actually expecting the same from this book, some maybe majority or maybe all of my friends on Goodreads have read this book and they seem to like it so much, i decided to give this one a try.
first off... the prologue is a "love spell" gone wrong. Even though this is a chic-lit book that first part of the book is kinda creepy it again reminds me of the movie Carrie. It's creepy and funny at the same time. and that prologue is entirely enough for me to get hooked reading this book.
While I am reading this book i have a few grins here and there, i really can't help it! Sophie is just one lovable character! she gives like a lot of snarky and sarcastic comments all the time, and she is the main reason that this whole book is enjoyable. I admire her personality cause she's really honest like how she admittedly confess that she has a crush on the hottest boy in the school, and how she just admitted that she is actually attracted to him cause maybe of his physical looks and his personality. See that? It is great if the main character in the book just admits that the he/she is attracted to someone directly, rather than fancy them and have delusional day dreams about them. LOL.
since i am laughing and grinning at this book, i was thinking that maybe this book will just give me laughs but not actually give me a whole main concrete plot, well it turns out it has a concrete plot. It has never crossed in my mind that this book will contain such a shocker, (oohhh i really wanna spill some details but it will just spoil your reading *zips mouth*) the concept of the book is original, kinda reminds me of Harry Potter but this one is quite different cause well Hecate Academy doesn't just cater witches and warlock but also other creatures as well. so there is actually a variety of powers and a bunch of different personality that you will encounter while reading this one, the whole book is written in a light manner that you will get this refreshing giddy feeling while reading it. I give credit also for having a Gay character in the book.
Overall: a really enjoyable read, every aspect in the book is in balance there is a little bit of this and that. some of the YA novels that I've read, i actually make the romance aspect of the book the redeeming factor, but in this book it is actually would be fine if there is no romance present, although i really like Sophie and Archer together. The romance is just an accessory in the book that made it even more awesome.
I don't know if I'll read Demonglass soon. they keep on saying that it contains a cliff hanger ending, and the 3rd book won't be out any soon. *sighs*...more
Iron Knight! the Iron Fey series has finally come to an end i was so eagerly anticipating for this book cause the Iron Queen just had a very bittersweIron Knight! the Iron Fey series has finally come to an end i was so eagerly anticipating for this book cause the Iron Queen just had a very bittersweet ending so A VERY HUGE THANKS TO NETGALLEY for providing Arc copies of the book, i will forever thank you guys. LOL
the iron king is where the 3rd book has left off, Meghan Chase is the new Iron Queen and our Icy Prince ASh is on the find a way to be with his beloved. He needs to find a soul to turn into a human so he can be with Meghan to the Iron Kingdom.
WOW! Just wow! i have Huge expectations regarding this book and i am so glad it didn't disappoint me, God! this one is full of adrenaline and twist, who would have thought that Ariella is alive? i mean come on!! her death just tormented Prince Ash and out of nowhere *POOF* she's alive! oh and she just pissed me cause why did she have to appear in the picture?? and the part where she has to appear in Meghan's dream, owww! i was on the verge of re-killing her.. haha! *Kidding* so she really redeem herself at the end and i was kinda feeling guilty for being so pissed with her.
the adventure of finding a soul is a very nice. i think the whole reminds me of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, where Pecy has to take a bath in the river of Styx to became powerful, i like it that the Big Bad Wolf was included in the adventure... the whole quest is the main highlight of the book cause we get to see Ash's determination and perseverance, and remember in the previous books that Ash kept on saying that he is an evil Faerie?? well he is so not exaggerating it turns out that he is really an evil fearie, the kind that can't possess any emotion, or *coughs* the heartless kind of a prince. the flashbacks and the tests of becoming a human is something that i really liked.
Overall: a fabulous book! a must read if you are a true blue Iron fey fan, and to be totally honest i'm a bit sad that the series has come to an end, but i am glad it is a happy ending, and reading this one is such a ride for me, and a big huge thanks to miss Kagawa for making a very awesome book series.
on the first couple of pages of the book, Grim,Puck,Ash,The Wolf wanted to make an adventure so they can have a story to tell to every person in Never Never, ow guess what guys? you just made a legend! you will always and will be remembered. *sniffs* i'll miss my Jester, so sad he ended up with no one. :( ...more
OOOKKKAAAYYYY!!! there is really not enough words on how much I really like this book, so please bear with my reOriginally Posted on The YA Bookworm
OOOKKKAAAYYYY!!! there is really not enough words on how much I really like this book, so please bear with my review. I can't really get over with the whole story of the book... *HEAVY SIGH*
this book is about a post apocalyptic world wherein angels are the ones who are destroying our world we are introduced with the main heroine Penryn and her sister page and her very unstable mother.
Of course the book's title speaks for itself that the book would be about angels, but as I first read the first page I just thought the the book would be like Hunger Games cause really, I mean the resemblance is like there. The unstable mom, the tough big sister and the vulnerable little sister, so I was like thinking that maybe the books isn't really about angels, but as I read on a whole new concept of angels were introduced to me, OKAY, so I was Taken aback that angels could like possibly destroy our world, that is like seriously never ever crossed my mind, I know angels are not really the gentle creatures that we know, some YA novels have introduced me to that concept but WOW! THEY ARE LIKE DESTROYING OUR WORLD!! OMG! I was like really shocked. BUT! my hysteria regarding the plot wasn't really a hindrance for me to like this book.
One thing I like about this book is how well it is written, I really feel like I am living in to this destroying kind of world and everything is just so dark and uncertain, another thing is the dialogues of the character. I just feel like the personality that the author feeds us with the characters really matches the dialogue that they are suppose to possess. Like how Raffe really talks like this modern kind of angel and how Penryn gives comments that is well suited to her personality. Another thing is the mash up of the concepts of this book so we have angels , we have aliens, we have dystopia and we have a slight glimpse of the apocalypse ... WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR. Everything is present in this book. and it is a shocker on how well those elements go together. Even though its kinda different that those different kinds of elements are present in this book.
I like this book so much, It just kinda took long for me to read cause I was back to school last week, so things are kinda like pretty hectic. This book is really awesome, and I am encouraging every Young Adult Lit lover out there to read it, cause this book didn't get that much attention. DO READ IT! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
I guess this is one of those books which I just really fell in love with the whole story, I can say that this book is one of those books which i didn't fangirl, but just fell in love completely with the whole book concept. :D...more
*sighs* isn't the cover so breathtaking?? *sighs* that violet eye is really something.
this book is absolutely amazing! i enjoyed reading every single page of it, the opening is delivered really good cause the opening is about Gemma having this nightmare wherein a pair of glowing eyes is on to kill her.
The concept of the book is hard to get first, cause the title of the book is "The Fallen Star" and i don't get at first it's relation to Gemma, cause Gemma is actually this weird girl who is incapable of feeling any emotion until a new guy came to her class, Alex then she started to feel this electric buzzing, prickling her skin and then it turns out that a fallen star's energy is reeling through her and that energy is needed to open a gate to release the "Death Walkers" who by the way are the creatures hunting Gemma's dreams.
so the first couple of pages I get to read thought from Gemma (it's written in a 1st person POV) so i get to witness how childish she thinks and i guess Gemma mirrored the thoughts of what a normal girl will think, added the fact that throughout her life she's been branded as a weirdo and a loner, so i enjoyed reading her perspective she is so darn funny BTW, she reminds me of Anna from the Book Anna and the french kiss.
the maybe near half of the book is really good! i was so ready to give it 5 stars a lot of "supernatural" concept is introduced in this book (vampires,foreseers,black angel,keepers,faeries,city of crystals) so yeah, kinda sound TMI to you right? well this book is kinda TMI-ish BUT! this one is so different, kinda resembles TMI but in a good way, cause some added stuff are introduced here and the concept of foreseers is really something new to me.
the ending is such a darn Cliff hanger my mouth was hanging Open! OMG! darn! why did the book end like that, really??? seriously??? i have encountered a lot of cliff hangers, but this one is so darn unforgivable! ha! you wanna know the ending?? i won't tell you! ( using my most teasing voice) you'll just have to read this one to find out.
the title of this book series is Gods and Monsters, well the book really lived up to it's title cause thisOriginally posted @ YA Bookworm
the title of this book series is Gods and Monsters, well the book really lived up to it's title cause this book has Gods (yeah,yeah the Greek ones) and monsters (vampires,harpy,gorgons), sure i encountered gods and monsters combined except maybe for the vampire part, but i never read a book that has gods,monsters,vampires,warlocks and witches. *whoa too much mash-up occurring here*
this book is actually about a girl named ari, who lived a very tough life, her mom left her when she was still a baby and her mom was proven to be demented and killed herself, so she was sent on many foster homes and eventually her foster parents also abuse her, so her suffering doesn't stop from there her features are somehow different because she has different hair color (silver/white) and her eye color is really different among the others.so basically she is a called a FREAK throughout her life. *sighs*
first thing i noticed about Ari is that she use swear words a lot, well i guess i understand that cause her past is really something hard to go through and those are the kind of experience in your life that will eventually will make you as hard as a rock, so anyway i like Ari cause even though she swears a lot i think she is another i guess i admire her determination and perseverance and having like enough strength to move on what happened to her life.
regarding the plot, well i can say that it's a huge roller coaster ride, at first i thought it somehow resembles Beautiful Creatures cause dark magic was very much a theme in the book, but i was so totally wrong! gods and mythology is also in here like medusa and harpy and well Athena, Athena was introduced in this book as being the Goddess of the war not wisdom and she is actually the bitch-est among the bitch-est (OMG! annabeth will be so pissed) Athena here is heartless and well yeah a bitch. LOL ^^. curses are also present in this book and i am telling you that i wad freaking frustrated on what is Ari's curse is. well it turns out that when she is 21 years old she will become a *TOOOOOOT* gee, i'm so not gonna tell you, don't wanna spoil your reading. haha!
fine i'll give you a hint: AUNTY EM ^^
this is an overall a fantastic read. I recommend it to guys and gals who are mythology nerds (like me). :)
I am a huge fan of the Percy Jackson series. and I am so glad that this book is somehow the prequel of the series. the first page of the book is reallI am a huge fan of the Percy Jackson series. and I am so glad that this book is somehow the prequel of the series. the first page of the book is really captivating, as a mystery freak. I find it really interesting that the main hero has no idea who he is or what he is. but he knows stuff that he has no idea how he knows it... when I was reading it. I was really intrigued and every page is killing me cause i really wanna know who Jason is, what kind of demigod is he. he knows crazy hero stuff which i think is so much cooler than Percy.
Just when I was reading this i can't help but feel nostalgic all over again, cause I love the Percy Jackson and the Olympians with all my heart as I was reading this I can't help but to feel giddy all over when past characters from the Percy jackson series appeared in this book. (Annabeth,Chiron, Rachel... etc. ) Just when I thought I am over my demigod fantasies, this book just barged in to my life. and I think I'll love it even more than the Percy Jackson series. KYAAA!
Fun set of characters in this series! I think in this book Rick Riordan highlights some of the gods in mount Olympus that wasn't given much attention in the previous book series, cause it is always about Poseidon, Zues, Athena... and I would have to admit that I used to belittle the Aphrodite camp cause they have nothing special but in this book we get to meet the daughter of Aphrodite Piper, and I get to see Aphrodite cabin in a whole new light. They are more than just a pretty face. and I also love how the characters have more than just one power and abilities.
Overall: a fantastic book! everyone will surely enjoy it, especially if you are already a Riordan Fan. You'll love this series even more.
ALL NEW PROPHECY ALL NEW MYSTERIES ALL NEW QUESTS ARE YOU A GREEK OR ROMAN?
Seven half-bloods will answer the call. To storm or fire, the world must fall. An oath to keep with a final breath And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.
the last book from the percy jackson series is definitely a great read! think of all the mythical creature you can think of, it's all inwow! wow! wow!
the last book from the percy jackson series is definitely a great read! think of all the mythical creature you can think of, it's all in here! from monsters,to drakons,to titans,to the 12 Olympians everything is present. Everytime I open this book i feel like my surroundings magically transforms in to this world that the book describes I feel like I'm also slaying the monsters,I feel like I'm part of the battle but i also notice that this book is quite different cause i am used to seeing Percy as this hot-headed,short tempered and a sarcastic demigod but he transformed from that to someone strong,mature,wise and also a great leader.
another thing that I really like about this book is the shockers.the twists,the events that you didn't expect to Happen you'll just go "woah! Rachel is a what?" and "grover become a what?" and "Percy refused a what?" but the biggest shocker for me is Luke, damn! i never saw that one coming... i hated Luke since book 1 but WOW! he totally redeemed himself for all the bad things that he's done *tsk!tsk!* your the only villian who made me cry,Luke. you deserve a seat on Olympus *sniff*
and yeah! Percy Hearts Annabeth. :">
i could not think of a better way to end this book series. I like how the author pressed the subject of equality in the book, the Olympians and the minor gods should be treated the same.
*sighs* this is it! time to say goodbye to all the campers of Half Blood Hill. I'll definitely miss them all especially my Favorite Cyclops, Tyson.. LOL ^^ I'll miss you big guy!

oh my! oh my! just finished reading this very awesome and fantaboulous book ever! yay! the guild hunter series is now one of my favorite book series! :)
in this 3rd installment of the GH series, i can say that this is my fave of them all, oh my! lots of action and blood are present in this book, and we all thought that Elena and Raphael can be together happily regarding the fact that they are now both immortals and their feeling is mutual but wow! i never thought love complications can exist in this book, hah! it turns out that Elena is facing a far more greater challenge and that is facing her "Monster-in-law" haha! Raphael's Archangel Mother, Caliane has been awaken and she doesn't like Elena to be Rapahel's mate.
i gave the book 5 stars cause we get to unravel Raphael's past and to be honest i really don't know if i still like Illuim. maybe i should switch side? hmmm...
sex is still present in this book but maybe not as intense as the previous one, (no pinching in this book) LOL.
oh my! i am really speechless after reading this. gee, i really want the next book to be out! yay! :)

I am not the biggest fan of the first book,Unerathly. just gave the first book a 3 star rating, cause I didn't exactly enjoyed it as much as the others, and i was not planning to read this one, besides from the fact that netgalley denied my request to read an advance copy of the book, (yeah, I was so sad that they denied my request) haha! I guess the first book didn't give me enough excitement to read this one. But since I am out of books to read I decided to go for this one.
what to say? what to say?
I say that this one is a big improvement, we all know that Clara has an unknown purpose right? I mean her purpose is not certain on what it is about, well in this book this kinda somehow answered that question, and I was really pleased on how this book was written , I mean I really feel like every sentence and words spoken by the chracters are really hmmm.. Magical? woah! i really don't know how to describe the words used in this book but it has somehow gave me this feeling that I am living in world full of magic and wonders.
I like how the secrets were unraveled in this book, OMG! it's like Cynthia Hand just gave me a poundful of chocolate and shove it right in my mouth! oh yes! that's how good this book is, and I guess I appreciate the characters in this book, lots of new and intriguing additional characters were introduced here.
as for the romance part. HELL i don't care to which boy Clara will end up with! both guys are really HOT and worth of Clara's heart! KYAAA! and besides i am not after the romance in this book, I am after the angel stuff and unraveling more mysteries on who Clara is and what is her real purpose.
OH my! reading this one is such a remarkable experience. looking forward for the next book and I know It'll be a thousand times better than this one. :D ...more
in the 3rd book of the iron fey series meghan and ash were exiled from nevernever cause of their forbidden love, so they'll try living in the mortal win the 3rd book of the iron fey series meghan and ash were exiled from nevernever cause of their forbidden love, so they'll try living in the mortal wold but it seems like the iron fey is still following Meghan Chase wherever she goes...So she must put a stop on the Iron Kingdom for good.
THINGS I LOVE:
* Meghan's Character Progression- Wow! i thought Meghan would just be as annoying as the two previous books. cause in the two previous books she just keeps on crying and crying. Crying cause Ash ignored her, Crying cause Ash is not destined to be with her (blah,Blah). but OMG! in this book she is really BAD-ASS!!! she realized that she is tired of being the protected so she seek the help from Ash and Puck enable to unleash the power that is inside her and yes she really proved herself as being the main heroine of the story, sure at times she can be kinda annoying but what she has done through the entire book you would really forget that she is annoying. It's my very first time to encounter a female protagonist with a very impressive character progression it's from annoying to Bad-ass unlike from other characters that really never got any improvement they stick from annoying to even more annoying.
*Ashallyn 'darkmyk Tallyn the not so icy-prince- so *ahem* in the two previous books we get to see ash as this indifferent, expressionless and icy prince so he is this Dimitri-like,Jack-like,Edward-like character in the book BUT in the iron queen we get to see more of Ash he really opens-up to meghan in this book so we get to see what he was like in his previous life, etc. and i think he is pretty like-able in this book. (but not enough for me to be converted to team ash :D)
* Everything happens so fast in this book- well in this book pretty much shifts from scenario to scenario it's like in this part you'll get romance and all of a sudden you'll get TADAAA! heart-pounding action and that's what i like about this book it's fast paced but still very well written and the beginning and the end was executed perfectly.
* PUCK WAS SHIRTLESS- OMG!!!!!!! i thought Puck won't be in this book!!! ahhhhh!!!! "puck was lying on an overhead branch,smirking at me. his shirt was off, showing a LEAN BRONZED CHEST and his read hair was all over the place" mmmmmmm.. very sexy... rawr.. haha! LOLZ
THINGS I HATE
*love complications,they are not yet over- i thought that meghan and ash really beat the odds of their forbidden love but no!!! there is another complication that aroused from their almost perfect realtionship.
*oh grim! are you really gone????
*i'm not sure if puck is really ok with meghan and ash relationship even though he is just smiling and everything i know inside he is hurt and that's just sad... (awww! i love you Puck) *sniff,sniff*
"i will always love you princess, I'll take whatever you can give me" -Puck
------ at first i was assuming to give this book maybe three or four stars cause the two previous book i just gave both of them 3 stars, but his book is really different from the first two.. this book is really great.!!! deserves a 5 star rating... there will be a new book out called IRON KNIGHT and this time it will be written through Prince Ash's perspective.. :D ...more

I love this series so much. and I really can't wait for the finale!! Oh Hail Ms.Melissa de la Cruz, for making this series, I cannot actually say anymore about this book, I love how it is written, and the Sky X Jack, Mimi X Kingsley moments are soooooo good. yay! the last book would be epic! :D ...more
goodness! this is the best of the TMI series! i'm glad my prediction is right! so jace is really stephen's son! haha! thi am out of words! god! haha!
goodness! this is the best of the TMI series! i'm glad my prediction is right! so jace is really stephen's son! haha! that sibling mix-up thing is really crazy. i didn't know that Valentine is that twisted! sheesh!
oh well i'm just glad that jace and clary can be together now. hahaha! Jace kinda actually lose some of his humor in this book and i miss it, i like it when his lines crack me up but this time Simon was the one cracking me up which is unusual, love is also in the air in this book! we get to see MAGNUS X ALEC, IZZY X SIMON X MAIA, JACE X CLARY, JOCELYN X LUKE .
so i don't know what to expect from the next book, cause this one seems so finished it's like i'm not waiting for anything more, i just hope that jace and clary won't lose that magic, cause once love is not forbidden anymore it kinda sometimes looses it's ZING EFFECT ya know what i mean? >;)
woah!!!!! i know this book is badass but i never thought that it would be this badass!!! wow!
i was actually so happy when Ms. Kagawa will make a novella that is told from Puck's POV! I am a solid Team Puck even though Ash is so charming and loi was actually so happy when Ms. Kagawa will make a novella that is told from Puck's POV! I am a solid Team Puck even though Ash is so charming and lovable and sensitive in The Iron Queen i never ever switched to his side.
so what to expect from Puck? of course we all get the perception that Puck is this Happy go lucky guy who always pulls up some pranks and tricks and always defies King Oberon's rules BUT did you ever see the heart broken side of Puck? kinda hard to believe but yes, in this novella we actually get to see the tormented side of Puck, *sniffs* cause Meghan chose Prince Ash instead of him, and i feel so tormented myself seeing MY jester (possessive much? haha!) so wound up.. aww.. (don't worry Puck!I'm here! we can pull pranks together)
nevertheless i enjoyed reading this novella for a second i actually thought that i will hate Puck (view spoiler)[for acting like he betrayed Ash. (hide spoiler)] after reading this i even loved Puck even more cause of his witty ideas and pranks they actually get to accomplish Lea's Mission. a big huge thanks to Ms.Julie Kagawafor making this novella and giving Puck the spotlight! :)
Hah! that's MY Puck! witty and smart! <3

whooopeee!!! its been a while since i made a book review. I've been TERRIBLY busy lately. *chos* haha!
My first read this sembreak. and I enjoyed it. :whooopeee!!! its been a while since i made a book review. I've been TERRIBLY busy lately. *chos* haha!
My first read this sembreak. and I enjoyed it. :D
Alice in Zombieland didn't quite capture my expectation on what this book would be, i thought that it is gonna be like the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland , but the caterpillar,mad hatter and cheshire cat would be all zombies and Alice is the savior of wonderland from the zombies lurking in it. The book is nothing at all like that.
But I did get to see a hint of Shadowhunter vibe in this novel, I mean teenagers killing Zombies who are invisible to the naked eyes of mere humans?? hmmm. Smells like TMI to me. haha! but nevertheless i did enjoy the whole zombie concept, something new and refreshing I've been living my whole life thinking that if a zombie bit you, you will become a zombie yourself. well the thing is in this book, it doesn't go like that. and after the forest of hands and teeth ,i haven't quite enjoyed any Zombie books lately, and I haven't been anywhere near a book for about 3 months now, so this one just fit all my depressions and longing. kyaa..
the characters are really nice, Alice is a character that i really look up to, she is in a deep set of depression cause of what happen to her parents. and I really admire how strong she is, and she thinks that killing zombies is her main purpose in this world.I just love her character.
overall the book was an incredible read for me, the book cover is something i like also. I am definitely looking forward for the next book. i like to see more Cole and Alice moments. and also I want to see Kat and Frosty moments also. I mean, what would happen to Kat and Frosty if Frosty knew what kind of sickness Kat is carrying. i really can't wait.. :D ...more

woooh! just finished reading CoFA! the wildly anticipated book of 2011. *inhales* *exhales*
i was really scared to read this book, cause i love this series, probably one of the best series i've read so far and i have seen a lot of bad reviews about this book and i'm the kind of reader that stops reading a certain book if i didn't like the previous one. so any-who i still manage to give it four stars. but i still don't know if i gave the proper rating. sheesh! this book is really hard to rate and judge! so anyway let's proceed to my review.
my first time to criticize a book cover. yay! so here's the thing i really don't know why Clary is in the book cover. i mean come on?! what did Clary do in this book ahm hmmm let's see... straddle her legs in jace's hips, kiss Jace's lips, grope Jace's muscle and a lot of groping,kissing,groping... haha! ok. i'm not an anti clary but i really don't get the idea of her being in the cover. i guess it will be OK if simon is in the cover, cause simon is really kick ass in this book he is the only reason that the story is stirring.
in my review in City Of Glass, i stated there that i wish that Jace and Clary won't lost their spark, cause you see when love is not forbidden anymore it kinda losses it's magic. well DANG! i think they lost it's spark! *grunts* well their love is still kinda somehow still forbidden but sheesh! when jace is pulling away from Clary and those "i-don't-wanna-lose-you-and-i-can't-stay-with-you-cause-i-might-hurt-you" crap is so...so...so... EDWARD CULLEN-ish! and the last thing i wanna do is to compare Jace to Edward! ay-yay-yay.!
on the plus side! -i adore SImon! i super love SIMON! i worship SIMON! awww! simon is soooooooo hot in this book! haha! i think i'm gonna be team simon now *weep* -i like how ms.Clare introduce me to Camille and Lilith. they are pretty interesting characters. :) -i love the Rain-Alley scene! yay! too bad izzy showed up.. :(
so did this book disappoint me?
well i'm 30% disappointed 70% satisfied. but it would be a really,really wise choice if Cassandra Clare just ended the book in City of Glass.
i was actually thinking of giving this book a 3 star rating but the ending is really good! and i guess i so-so kinda like the groping and kissing scene of jace and Clary. so i am not kinda actually excited for the next book, i mean i guess i can wait for it, i guess i won't go insanely crazy when the book is out. haha! i am more looking forward to Simon and Izzy relationship.
(view spoiler)[so here is actually the reason why i'm not excited for the next book:
* i hate seeing Jace being all tormented again! huhu. i hate it when he will torture himself again, and i hate it when those pianist hands of his will kill all the people he loves oww! and i know sebastian will do anything EVIL... gosh! i really can't bear the thought of Jace hurting Clary or anyone... ahhhh! i better fancy Simon instead so that it will be easy for me to accept the story line of the next book. haha~ XD. (hide spoiler)]
========= BY THE ANGELS! WHY DID THE BOOK END LIKE THAT???

I was so excited to read this book cause for the first time i saw its cover i was so in love with it, never have i seen a very dark book cover, like the cover is enough for me to presume what is the story all about, i actually have this book's cover as my wallpaper on my phone (yeah,yeah i am that obsessed ^^ ).
anyways, let's proceed with the review... the book is actually about Cas Lowood who has the ability to slay ghosts, actually he slays ghost for living, until he met the ghost named Anna, Anna dressed in Blood...
ok, i really enjoyed reading this YA Novel, it's actually my first time to read a YA lit about ghosts, the first couple pages of the book is actually the moment when you really have to grasp the book to keep up with everything, i really find the first couple of pages of the book a bit more climatic than the middle part of the book.
i fing Anna a very interesting kind of ghost, the way Cas' describe her is really interesting he is like a ghost that is pretty with a dark edge to it, i can describe her a "Deadly yet Elegant" i was actually mostly looking forward to her story, like how was she killed? what was her life before she became a ghost, and thank god the author provided the most detailed and substantive information regarding my questions, when you know Anna Kurlov's story you will go like "OMG!! this is so much like Carrie's story!" (you know Carrie? the old classic horror movie with the shy and timid girl who turns psycho cause she was spilled with blood while being awarded as prom queen) that is how much Anna's story s like it was shocking, . On how was she killed, it never crossed in my mind that she was killed.
another thing i appreciate about this book is that reading from Cas's POV is really how i expected a boy to think, lot of swearing, curses and stuff like that, i like it cause coming from an author that is a girl (Kendare Blake is a girl right??) writing a novel from a guy's POV is kinda hard and as far as i know many girl author fail to deliver a smooth POV from a boy as their main character. so two thumbs up for ms.Blake you have really done a good job in writing this one fantastic novel. I am mostly looking forward on how cas and Anna's blossoming romance would be like, although it kinda bothers me on how Cas can fall in love with a ghost, not just a ghost but a DEADLY GHOST, but i guess that is the power of love.
i Guess I am not the only one that's looking forward for the next book, Girl of Nightmares has still have an indefinite date on when will it be published, kyaaa!! I am also looking forward on what will be the cover be like... :))
