Hi There! / City of Bones

Hi everybody! My name is Rachel and welcome to my blog. I am a high-schooler who loves to read and write. I also love to draw, sing, dance, swim, run, and watch Doctor Who. I am also a Joss Whedon fan and I love Buffy and Firefly.

Most recently I read the first book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones. I am not that much of a fantasy person (except for Harry Potter). I mostly love YA science fiction and dystopian (and also romance <3). But I really enjoyed reading this book! It was fast-paced, well written and humorous. I kept posting every three hours on Facebook about how far I was in the book, and sharing my favorite quotes. The only thing I had a slight problem with was that I found it a bit confusing to keep track of the different kind of creatures that exist in the Shadowhunters' world, which creatures are enemies with each other, etc. I was also very confused towards the end, when was a whole chapter of Luke telling his story, and I couldn't follow who was related to whom. I tried looking up a family tree of all the characters, but I still couldn't figure it out. I basically got the gist of it though, and I caught the big "oh!" moments. ;) Some people are really good at following things like these, but I am not one of them. Oh well. (If any TMI fans want to explain the whole thing to me, that would be helpful! :))

The only other thing was that Jace just kept making fun of Simon any time anybody mentioned him. It started to get pretty old. Seriously, dude, just stop.

I really loved this book overall, though and I am excited to continue the series! I also really want to watch the City of Bones movie. It feels really rewarding to see the movie after you have finished the book.
