Rating: fangirlstarsfangirlstarsfangirlstars

To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters – never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City – whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.

Well…this was a time.

I honestly am not sure what I want to say except that I thought that this was an okay read. I had read the first two books in this series back when I was in high school and I remember loving every moment of it, however for some reason I got distracted by another novel and just never came back to this series.

Until now. Continue reading “City of Glass by Cassandra Clare [REVIEW]”

Dear Romance,

First off let me start the letter by saying how much I adore your stories. You are literally a 10/10 would recommend genre, and one that keeps me going throughout the day.

But back to what I was going on about–I am indeed in love with you Romance genre, the way you can make a girl swoon and wish she wasn’t single is a power beyond me. I love you…I dream about you… but I have a bone to pick with you. Continue reading “Dear Romance…An Open Letter to the Romance Genre”

Uh yeah so this one was a dud. This read, was a buddy read with the wonderful bean Soph @ Bookwyrming Thoughts and it was…a time to say the least. Everything in this story was so insta-love and the fake relationship trope (my favorite trope next to enemies to lovers) was the fakest fake relationship I have ever read. I think the fake relationship lasted maybe six pages at best, before they decided to make things official and “real”. Yeah, not a fan was I.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love me a good insta-love trope–I mean I stan Twilight for heaven’s sake– but I like instant love when it’s done well and sadly this didn’t make it into the done well category. Continue reading “Mini-Reviews Monday #4”
