really liked it
bookshelves: 2012-favorites

This one dragged a little so I deducted a star but other than that, I loved it. I enjoyed the story separation, it reminded me of J.K. Rowling's writing where some scenes are about Clary and Simon but in a flash of a paragraph you are in a dark room with Valentine and Imogen. You get to know the villain more as well as other characters when authors do this, I'm doing it now with Wicked Beautiful. I enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to see what happens in book 3 and why the hell Simon can be in the sunlight!! WTF is going on? all the questions!!!! I NEED ANSWERS NOW!!!!

Abrianna i'm just curious but why do you hate him so much?

The things that he does just irk me, espcially now that he's kissing Clary and she's going along with it. It doesn't make any sense to me lol

Abrianna don't worry about that. that's not going to be a problem later on trust me. spoiler alert, that's just a little phase that doesn't even last
