City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments #4)

As the synopsis also says, in the City of Fallen Angels, the latest installment of The Mortal Instruments series, the war is over, Jace is back from the dead, Clary’s mom is back too and everything returns to normal – maybe too normal for Clary who doesn’t simply want to live the life of a regular teenager. She is now a real shadowhunter who has more serious things to do than just be a teen. She is now sulking a lot, Jace is acting out his teen age as well and things start to look like, well, normal.

City of Glass

I decided to review City of Glass, the third in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare while it’s still fresh in my mind.

When I was reading City of Bones, I had already watched The Mortal Instruments movie, so my mind kept making parallels between the book and the film (that’s why I usually like to […] Read more »

I read City of Bones by Casssandra Clare (the first in The Mortal Instruments paranormal series) after watching the movie in the cinema. I think it was a first for me, as I usually read the book and then watch the movie (or TV series), like I did with so many others including Harry Potter, Dexter, etc. So now having both read the book and watched the movie, here are my impressions. I have to say I liked both. I would have probably liked the book more if I hadn’t watched the film first, because now every time I read […] Read more »
