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]”

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”

The problem with secrets is that they’re too easy to keep collecting. 

Luna Allen has done some things she would rather no one ever know about. She also knows that, if she could go back in time, she wouldn’t change a single thing. 

With three sisters she loves, a job she (mostly) adores, and a family built up of friends she’s made over the years, Luna figures everything has worked out the way it was supposed to. 

But when one of those secrets involves the man who signs her paycheck, she can’t find it in her to regret it. Despite the fact that he’s not the friendliest man in the world. Or the most patient. 

Sometimes there are things you’re better off keeping to yourself. Continue reading “Luna And The Lie by Mariana Zapata [REVIEW]”

Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.

That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.
