Summary: City of Bones is the first book to Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series. It is about a girl named Clary Fray who finds herself in an awkward situation when she witnesses a murder by three teenagers that no one else can see. When her Mother is taken from their New York apartment it becomes personal, and Clary starts on a journey that will reveal secrets that even she didn’t want to know.

Review: My Mom read the series before me, and encouraged me to read it. I was skeptical, I think, because the cover didn’t look like something I would be interested in, and also, the first couple of pages threw me off. I kept trying to read it, and then putting it down after only a couple pages. Well, I decided to commit to it, because the author of Twilight was quoted saying that she liked the books, and seeing as she is one of my favorite authors, I trust her. And I’m glad I did. Not only was City of Bones a good book, but I looked it up, and they are making it into a movie for 2012! I enjoyed this book, and all of the characters, though I thought they could have been more developed. There was just so much going on that I think I would have like some more details. Other than that, I loved it, and I think it will make an awesome movie, even though the ending was a little weird. And now I am off to read the second one, and try to figure out WHAT IS GOING ON?!


My name is Molly, I am 18, and I LOVE to read. I am also trying to do some writing, because I have always liked to write, I just have to master the skill. My favorite book series is The Hunger Games, and I suggest that if you haven't read it that you do so immediately. One day I would like to write a book worthy of publishing.

    I am so with you on the fact that I had no clue what was going on. I never read the rest of the books they were just not my kind.

    Yeah, I really thought that the next book would answer all my questions, but it just created more.
