City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Everytime I would see City of Bones at the bookstore, I would never pick it up. I kept on hearing so many good reviews on it, but I kept judging it from the cover and synopsis on the back and would walk by part it, until one day I decided to give it a try ... and it was the best decision I made!
City of Bones is such a new concept in the YA world and I fell in love with it. Clare writes such a seductive story that I never wanted to stop and I never wanted to leave the word there. Clary was not an annoying character and even though she had her faults, she always stood up for herself and was doing everything for her mother. Then there's Jace. Hot, beautiful Jace ... only if he was real! I loved his rudness in the story because I knew behind that was a very sweet guy and he did show that soft spot of his, even though he tried masking it all the time.
Now when I look at the cover, it really describes the Shadowhunters world and everything else about the book. My next review will be on City of Ashes, the sequal, and let me tell you, I loved it as well!!
