I'm just through the first chapter. I know it's too soon to say a single word, but I'm not too excited about the book yet.

Lisa Vegan (lisavegan) I don't have much time to read this month so I'm unable to read this selection, at least at this time with the group. ☹


Ashley (readerandwriter) Lisa, sorry you will have to miss out on the fun.

I think my library is cutting back on how often they deliver books between libraries so it takes even longer to get books... I probably won't get this till the 2nd week of August!

Dang this book taking so long to get to me!


Tera (TheBookishAbyss) I read the entire book yesterday in between packing and getting ready for vacation. It was so good I just could not put it down and when I had to put it down, it was all I could think about! Fantastic book!


Kathy (thebrainlair) I'm about halfway through the book, just finished chap 13. The book is good but not great, so far. I enjoy reading it, but I can easily put it down.


message 20: by HeyT (new)

HeyT Yeah, that's how it was for me.


message 21: by Maggie (new)

Maggie Stiefvater (maggie_stiefvater) I'm with you, Angie, I'm still waiting for the book to get here!


J-Lynn Van Pelt | 43 comments Finished. I liked it. I think the second book has a lot of potential--I went out and bought it.


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

I finished CITY OF BONES last night. I know I didn't start with the best attitude, but I pretty much continued in that same vein. Boring. Repetitive relationship issues between Clary and Jace that drag the book on endlessly. Too much informational dialogue. Predictable plot line: action, relationship development, action, relationship development. Classes of underworlds and the Clave were created for convenience sake as the need arose. The Star Wars family relation ending was cheap. It also finishes with a complete set up for the next book: no dice on the mortal cup.


Ashley (readerandwriter) I'm on chapter 14. I'm really liking it. Theres a lot of action and mystery in it.


Nikki (nikk329) | 32 comments I just started Sunday because I was waiting for it at the library. I'm only to chapter 4 and it seems ok so far.

Suzanne | 7 comments I'm almost through chapter 9 and I'm not totally engrossed yet. Hopefully it will pick up soon. Right now it seems like a major mix between Buffy and Charmed. I enjoy both of these shows a lot so I still have hope.

I am 1 away at the library! YEAH!


Ashley (readerandwriter) Finished it just now.


Suzanne | 7 comments Alright I'm to chapter 16 now and it's gotten better. A lot of action.

I feel like I am NEVER going to get this book! I have been number 1 all week long at the library and still nothing.


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

Sorry to interupt, I just want to make sure you all are still reading City of Bones. That is what the topic says but when I saw that someone was still waiting for the book, and someone just started chapter one a bit of paranoia kicked in that you were talking about Stardust. I have Stardust already but I've been waiting till someone said go or something to start reading it. I'm new as of like a week ago and don't really know how this thing works yet.

This thread is still about City of Bones, you read it through the whole month of August. So some people start later then others (like me who still hasn't been able to get the book). The discussion for Stardust will start September 1st. Usually the person who is the discussion leader will have already read it so they can start the conversations (but that is not a must it's up to them how they want to do it). So you have the whole month of September to read Stardust. You can even read previous book club reads and still add to the discussion on those, they are not closed. Hope this helps.


Ashley (readerandwriter) Chevy,

You should see discussion threads up for Stardust first day of September.

Did you guys know Neil Gaiman is a Goodread's author? Maybe he will pop in for the Stardust book read!~! How cool would that be!


message 37: by Lisa (new) - added it

Elaine (readingrat) | 24 comments I'm on chapter 10 of City of Bones, but it hasn't really hooked me yet.

Angie | 2687 comments Mod
I am about 100 pages in, I like it so far. I enjoy the different weapons used and the mystery of the story.


Elaine (readingrat) | 24 comments I really enjoyed chapters 13-15.


Nikki (nikk329) | 32 comments I just finished the book. I wasn't all that impressed in the first half but it got better and I'll probably read the next one at some point.
