Written Review: The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Now for why I can't finish it.
It's so obvious what is going to happen. Spoiler: Jace and Clary (the author named the character after herself!) are related and Valentine (the bad guy) is the father. Plus I really don't care what happens to the characters. And I don't want to waste my time reading a book that is almost 500 pages when I already know the ending. 16 year old Miranda would finish it. 20 year old Miranda has better shit to do and far better books to hopefully read. With my to read books piling up, and not a lot of time (thank you college)I better end it now and read the next book on my list. With that being said up until about page 100, it was enjoyable and fun. Reminds me of Twilight. A nice, light (yes it's 500 pages, but it's not exactly 500 pages of philosophical exploration of life or anything particularly thought provoking) young adult read that many people will wet their panties over. Suffice it to say I will not be continuing on with the series.
