I've read a few books based off of fairy tales and wasn't impressed, but I love how the beauty is the beast in this. Can't wait for the next in the series because I have to know what happens with Beatrice and Adam!(less)

I read an awesome review (kicking myself for not remembering which one) for this book and seeing it was about cheating kinda made me want to move along to another review bit something told me to read it. Needless to say, I ended up buying it that day and finished it pretty quickly. Life by Committee is one of the best books I've read this year, it didn't involve anything paranormal or fantasy. It's about a girl who does make some not so great decisions, but ultimately just wants her life to be somewhat normal. I hate how alone she is, her parents are there but they have their own stuff going on. She's kinda pushed off to the side because everyone thinks she is so independent. I think that has a lot to do with some of her terrible choices. I believe Tabitha could easily be someone that I could relate to and I love her method of reading. It's called active reading and you make notes in the margins, and write down how something made you feel. Questions you want to ask. Only problem with it is my being OCD about writing in my books... Her one friend that she had throughout (mostly) the book was awesome and didn't pull any punches. But she was also there to listen and be there. Her previous friends, well, I have nothing nice to say about them. How they treated Tabitha and why, just unreal to me. To me, cheating is wrong on so many levels, and I know a lot agree and it may be the reason to not read this. But it is so much more than that. It's about someone coming into their own, finding their path, and obviously making mistakes along the way. I love this book, it's a beautiful story and I can't wait to check out more from this author.(less)

I would even go as far to say I enjoyed this better than the first two. So I definiely have high hopes that City of Angels is going to be just as good..
I love the new things that are happening and all the new people you get to meet along the way. Also the way that ost of the book is centered in Idris. I always imagined how beautiful the place would be and Clare didnt disappoint in her descriptions of how the witchlight lit the whole city.
I have to admit I wasnt really surprised finding out Clary and Jace werent related but I was grateful none theless. Their two broken hearts were wearing down on me and I just wantd them to be happy. I do hope Sebastian makes an appearance again because as much as I love the heroes in the book.. I can also appreciate a well written bad boy especially one with such good looks. (less)

While it's true she's got some love issues, they are reality in a dystopian bachelor. Which is kinda hilarious that I never cared for Bachelor/Bachelorette. Personally, I am rooting for Maxon. He's an overall great guy that cares for America deeply. Aspen isn't necessarily bad, but he did break her heart and make her promise to sign up. Why shouldn't she go for happy when she was at her lowest? When it's something that isn't forced, but natural?
I can't wait for The Elite to come out in April, so sad if I would have known I might have read it a little later. Nothing like mixed reviews to make me want to read it and I'm so glad I did!(less)
