Woah, Dere Wednesday (17)


This week I’m reading City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3) – Cassandra Clare. I will try and finish it soon to start City of Fallen Angles (The Moral Instruments #4) – Cassandra Clare and then City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) – Cassandra Clare before the LAST ONE COMES OUT! Oh my gosh. I’m so pumped. 12 DAYS. ONLY 12. I can’t wait. Right now I’m at the part in City of Glass where the demon towers in Alicante aren’t working and there is a war beginning to form and it’s epic. I love this part and this is my favorite book out of the whole series. I love City of Lost Souls, (I’ve read them all) but this one is my favorite. *SPOILERS* Okay, you’ve been warned. If you haven’t read the first three or more do not read this part. Simon is a vampire and he’s locked down in jail in Alicante and Jace and Isabelle are bringing him blood because the new Inquisitor threatened to leave him to die if he doesn’t tell a lie to the Clave. He’s not going to tell the made up story beacause the Lightwoods are his friends, well, Clary’s friends, and that would hurt Clary. Simon loves Clary so he can’t do that, obviously. So, he’s staying down in jail with this weird guy in the cell next to his and he’s trying to stay alive, but right now there is a war going on and he can’t get out. *SPOILERS DONE* Like, what? This is unacceptable. Anyway, I love this book and can’t wait to read the others again.

Title: City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2)

Author: Cassandra Clare

Release Date: March 25, 2008

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books

Format: Paperback

Page Number: 453

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? Clary would love to spend more time with her best friend, Simon. But the Shadowhunters won’t let her go–especially her handsome, infuriating newfound brother, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil–and also her father. When the second of the Mortal Instruments os stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor suspects Jace. Could Jace really be willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

5 out of 5 stars

Plot:

Jace and Clary find out they’re siblings and Clary is heartbroken. She loves Jace, but since she knows Jace is her brother, she starts dating Simon. Simon always sees Jace and Clary at the most unfortunate times, for him at least. Jace has feelings for Clary, but he, like Clary, tries to push the feelings down. Valentine is trying to start a war with the Clave because he doesn’t believe in the things they do. He kills and drains blood from a werewolf, a faerie, and a vampire to complete a task with the Mortal Sword. We find out that Alec has a thing for the warlock called Magnus Bane. Simon has a life or death experience, multiple, actually. Lots of demons and some Shadowhunter deaths are included… This book was so good. I’ve already read this book and I loved it even more the second time. I caught onto so many things I’d forgotten from before. It took me a while to finish because I’ve already read it, so I knew what was going to happen. Overall, this is one of the more boring books from this series, but it’s still a great book. I can’t wait to reread the others in the series.

Characters:

Jace is one of my all time favorite characters from any book. He’s perfect, but I will spare everyone from the fangirling. Clary is a strong character, but she gets irritating. She needs to just tell Jace that she’s in love with him. It would make things so much easier on everyone. Alec and Isabelle are still some of my favorite characters. I love Luke and would imagine him as a great fatherly figure, and Magnus Bane would be the perfect best friend. He has parties every weekend and he has a crush on Alec. It’s perfect. Simon is a good character, but I’m always sad when he’s with Clary because he loves her but she doesn’t feel the same way.

Who Would I Be?:

I would choose to be Isabelle because she’s super awesome and stunning. She always dresses nicely and Alec would be a great brother. Being her wouldn’t really be so great in the fact that she’s always in danger, but beyond that I would totally pick her. I love that she has her whip around her wrist at all times as a bracelet, and I love that she’s a Shadowhunter and isn’t helpless like some *cough cough Clary*

Title: City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1)

Release Date: April 14, 2000

Format: Paperback

Page Number: 485

When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder commited by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons–and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It’s also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….

5 out of 5 stars

Plot:

The Mortal Instruments world is one of my favorite fictional worlds. Shadowhunters hunt and kill demons with special weapons. The main character, Clary, is completely new to the Shadowhunter world. She knows nothing about it until three mysterious teenagers are seen by her Mundane eyes. She sees Jace Wayland and Alec and Isabelle Lightwood. The three Shadowhunters Clary sees are in an all age dance club, and then she sees them pull knives and daggers on a normal looking boy. She screams, but no one else can see them because of Glamour. You can only see through Glamour if you’re a Shadowhunter or a Downworlder or you have “the sight.” Hmm. Does Clary possess one of these traits? How can she see them? I love the Shadowhunter world. I’ve read this book three times now. I love the whole idea of it and I love everything about it in general.

Characters:

Jace Wayland. Jace is so perfect. He’s my book crush. He’s beautifully sarcastic and I love it. Clary Fray is the protagonist of this story and I love how curious about everything she is. I think it’s unrealistic that she would “get used to” the idea of Shadowhunters so easily. I know that I would freak out for more than a day. Alec and Isabelle are some of my favorite characters. Alec is so sassy and Isabelle is so fabulous. Cassandra Clare perfectly projected a sibling relationship. Magnus is one of my absolute favorite characters. I think I only love him because I’ve read the other books and I know what’s going to happen with him, but he’s so energetic and he doesn’t care what other people think of him.

Who Would I Be?:

I would be Isabelle because she’s tall, which I am definitely not, and she’s beautiful and graceful. I would love to have Alec as a brother because he’s awesome and a genuinely nice person. Again, I’ve read this whole series so that’s how I already know that I love him. He and his sister are just loveable characters.
