    I have to say I ve heard mixed reviews about this book series, many saying the writing and characters are feeble attempts at creating a good story and whatnot All I can say is screw those people because I enjoyed this seriesthan I could ever describe in words I d gotten all three books in one swing to the bookstore which I admit could ve been stupid of me if I hadn t liked it, but of course it didn t turn out that way and even with the second book s summary spoiler I was gaping all I have to say I ve heard mixed reviews about this book series, many saying the writing and characters are feeble attempts at creating a good story and whatnot All I can say is screw those people because I enjoyed this seriesthan I could ever describe in words I d gotten all three books in one swing to the bookstore which I admit could ve been stupid of me if I hadn t liked it, but of course it didn t turn out that way and even with the second book s summary spoiler I was gaping all during the City of Bones It s seriously written in such a way that even if you re told about every event and spoiler throughout any of the books, you will still be amazed at how those happenings come about Cassandra Clare places twists into the story that you wouldn t have ever thought of no matter how much you ponder, and I very much enjoyed the sarcasm and humour throughout all the books All the major events are well woven together in a way where you really don t know what will happen and Cassandra Clare is very creative with her ideas of the several different supernatural races in the story as well as her own principles of Shadowhunters and their world The characters are interesting and definitely not boring, they re thoughts and actions frustrated me sometimes, but it makes it all the better andsuspenseful to read The descriptions gave me a clear image in my mind of what was happening, and I often found myself pulled into the world and politics of the Shadowhunters Quite plainly I love it The building feelings and love between the main characters, Clary and Jace, along with the action and adventure are thrilling and enticing I personally can t get enough of this series

    This has got to be one of the most overrated series of all time.I have individual reviews somewhere but safe to say that overall I was pretty underwhelmed.It was all a bit ridiculous and angsty and I just am not a huge fan of supernatural monsters being turned into heart throbs.

    Oh, how I love love love this trilogy, let me count the ways I enjoy books 4 5 in the series as well, but not as much as I do these ones I d say it was my ultimate guilty pleasure except I refuse to feel guilty Yummily dramatic Yes Delightfully angsty Yes With an entertaining worldbuilding, great secondary characters, and delightful quips Yes But I am in it for Jace and Clary, arguably the most deliciously tortured and passionate and dysfunctional soulmatey soulmate OTP that I have co Oh, how I love love love this trilogy, let me count the ways I enjoy books 4 5 in the series as well, but not as much as I do these ones I d say it was my ultimate guilty pleasure except I refuse to feel guilty Yummily dramatic Yes Delightfully angsty Yes With an entertaining worldbuilding, great secondary characters, and delightful quips Yes But I am in it for Jace and Clary, arguably the most deliciously tortured and passionate and dysfunctional soulmatey soulmate OTP that I have come across in the entirety of YA Clary is a fun heroine tough and resilient, and Jace is the combo of snarky gorgeousness, edgy vulnerability, andbad luck than a houseful of black cats, but it s together that they get to me They turn me from a reasonable adult to a squealing 15 year old if I were 15 this would be my favorite set of books and I d want to be Clary so badly As it is, I couldn t resist them anyway These books gave me that delightful feeling that I haven t felt in a really long time that impatience to turn the next page, the need to know what next, and above all that delicious fact in the back of your mind at all time the knowledge the book is in your bag and you will soon get to readthat anticipation is almost sweeter than the act of reading itself Too many favorite things view spoiler I mean, this series has angsty messed up unworthiness feeling guys He totally always blames himself for everything because he believes he destroys those he loves, everything is his fault, etc etc clearly being brought up by Evil Overlord is bad for you with deadly combat skills willing to do anything to protect their smart, magically gifted younger sisters who they are madly and mututally in forbidden love with Even Evil Overlord fathers aside, the angst Jace and Clary have because they believe they are siblings is like a really really yummy TIRAMISU sluuuuuuurp Also, the hurt comfort is insane and so good CC clearly believes that a day spent by Jace without being horribly mistreated is a wasted day A MEN.Some of my favorite scenes include Jace smashing up his window so his hands will get cut As a sort of self devised punishment for hurting Clary out of necessity and accidentally getting Simon trapped or the OTP almost having sex in the ruins of his house and they only stop because Clary has common sense and insists they do not proceed until he is clear that this isn t part of Jace s self loathing party hide spoiler

    Hmmm Where to start with these books These are kind of a mix between Twilight and Harry Potter, though I didn t think they were as good as either Now that I ve finished all of them, I like them a lotin retrospect than I did while reading them The plot is compelling and interesting, but I really hated most of the characters for the first part of the trilogy I also don t think these are appropriate for young teens since there are some references to sex, pornography, homosexuality, and s Hmmm Where to start with these books These are kind of a mix between Twilight and Harry Potter, though I didn t think they were as good as either Now that I ve finished all of them, I like them a lotin retrospect than I did while reading them The plot is compelling and interesting, but I really hated most of the characters for the first part of the trilogy I also don t think these are appropriate for young teens since there are some references to sex, pornography, homosexuality, and some very graphic violence It s surprising to me how prevalent this stuff is in YA literature.I think what really kept me from truly enjoying these books was the writing style The author had some great ideas, if not completely original, but the first half of all three books dragged The author is too descriptive in areas that do not warrant it, and the prose is very purple I found myself just skimming a lot of the descriptive stuff Also, some things are just completely overdone I got tired of reading descriptions of Jace s golden eyes and angel face Also, how many times do we have to read about people tasting blood for various reasons SPOILER I also had a hard time with the romance There was decent tension between Clary and Jace, but after the first book, you feel torn between wanting them together and being completely disgusted by the whole incest angle Even though I knew they would somehow work it out for them to not be siblings, it was disturbing to watch them want each other when THEY didn t know they were going to end up not being siblings It made me think about what it would be like to have feelings like that for my brother, and, well, UUGGHH

Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare has it all The plot will keep you on your toes, and unable to put the book down It personally took me a little under three days to finish all currently published books They aren t that quick a read, having a few hundred pages each, which most leisurely readers find pleasant The Mortal Instruments currently has three books in circulation, the fourth of which is coming out April 5th of this year Clare s books have made their way into many a best seller list, as well as home Published in at least six languages and twenty six countries this series is widely popular and mainstream As a personal rule I do not read mainstream books because the hype about them is ridiculous, I didn t read Meyer s Twilight until about three years after publication nor did I finish the last book due to the mainstream effect Cassandra is one of the few authors I have cast my rule away for, having started to read her work a short while after City of Ashes, the second of her series was published This isn t your mom s fantasy, though you should have her read it, she might like it too Set in the heart of New York we see the urban fantasy that has taken a big step onto shelves everywhere Clary is our heroine, and with best friend Simon in tow she sees the world for what it really is Clary s life takes turn after turn after that fateful she encounters Jace and the other Shadowhunters With adventure full of vampires, demons, magic, and other various Downworlders Clary s life is turned upside down, flipped on it s side, then turned again Clary is fifteen and living in Brooklyn with her mother Jocelyn She s grown up without a father, but has family friend Luke to fall back on when the father shoes must be filled One night Clary and Simon check out Pandemonium, a popular club where their lives change forever Clary sees something she shouldn t have, or should I say people Standing in an off limits zone Clary stares at Jace Wayland, along with his fellow Shadowhunters Alec and Isabella Lightwood The weird thing Simon couldn t see them Thanks to this one in a million chance Clary s world unravels, her mom is missing, and Clary is given a crash course about the world she lives in which leads her to question her very identity along with a relationship with the snaky blonde heartthrob Jace That s just the first book, looks like you ve got an adventure on your hands What s this There s a baddy That s right ladies and gentlemen, there s a bad guy in the form Valentine, resident nut job A very Hitler Esq nut job in my personal opinion, but that s the way the cookie crumbles for this obscenely smart, insane character Valentine ran a secret group of Shadowhunters who lived to rid the world of Downworlders, talk about teenage rebellion, but that s in the past right The third book, City of Glass is seriously action packed, with a big battle, character development, some rather large twists that ll make you say wait what and some witty sarcasm that ll make you giggle Jaces particular brand of humor will make readers giggle through out the whole series, but anyone who s really read and analyzed The Mortal Instruments will say it s a defense mechanism The Mortal Instruments really has a lot of the characteristics I look for in the YA Young Adult books I read Romance, action, length, some fun humor, and makes you think Cassandra also put a lot of effort into linking the legends in her books to actual world legends and myth, talk about dedication That s something I really like in an author, when you find something interesting they make it possible to find outGive Clare s work a shot, you might like it I know I did I don t know about you, but I always like to read the book before the movie, and while doing a little bit of refresher stuff on the official website I found that a movie is in the works The film rights to Cassie Clare s best selling series were optioned by Unique Features The director will be Scott Charles Stewart, and the ever talented Jessica Postigo as screenwriter Fans of The Blind Side 11 20 09 will be happy to know that the lovely Lily Collins has already been cast as our heroine According to Collin s IMDb the movie, which is currently in pre production should be coming out in 2012 Cassie Clare s official fan site, Mundie Source shed a bitlight on the subject Filming, says Collins, is to begin in April This piece of information can be found next to Alex Pettyfers face in the January 2011 archive To find outabout Mundie Source check out The Mortal Instruments website for facts, Cassie
