This one’s been on my to-read list for a while, I’ve thought about it and looked at it so many times, each time thinking it would be another case of a book that everyone else thought was cool and I hated. For a change I was wrong. I wouldn’t say it was my favourite book in the world, or that it changed my life, but it was a nice easy book to read and it kept my attention.

City of Bones follows the life of teenager Clary Frey when things start going a little bit strangely in her life. First she sees a girl in a club being followed by a guy, then she finds out she can see things nobody else can see. Of course, she happens to be able to see a particularly interesting boy who nobody else can see and it just gets weirder for Clary from there. Her mum isn’t who she says she is, but of course Clary can’t ask her about it because her mother has disappeared leaving a demon in their house which attacks Clary.

Okay, this is probably not the book for you if you’re into great literature, but if you’re looking for a nice easy read with some vampires, demons, warlocks and other paranormal and fantasy creatures then pick this one up. I’ll definitely be picking up the other books in the series.

Rating: 3/5
