I decided to start reading a new book series. I have a lot of recommendations and suggestions from friends and finally settled to start my quest for a new book series to fangirl into with Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments Series. Here I come, City Of Bones!
In the middle of starting to dive into the Shadow Hunter World, I’m sorry but I really can’t help but roll my eyes to the ceiling a lot of times.
I’m currently on the part where they are about to attend Magnus Bane’s party. Firstly, why oh why would they bring petulant/petty/childish Simon with them? He’s a mundane! He has no reason to be there.
This part reminds me so much on the time Percy Jackson decided to take Rachel into the Labyrinth. It spelled disaster in ALL CAPS.
A VERY BAD IDEA!
–THE CHARACTERS (SO FAR)–
Clary – too nosy for my peace of mind, with a lot of issues to settle. Insecure, grumpy and sometimes nonsensical. Ugh.
Jace – How old is he anyway? And he’s like the bipolar, mysterious neighbor I won’t bother knowing about.
Simon – he’s the most annoying one (so far). Petulant/Childish/Petty much? Does he have a redeeming quality I missed?
Alec – is Alec. Hostile and Grumpy. He embodies “me against the universe”.
Isabelle – the normal one (I think). She reacts on things normally. I mean for a cool, kick-ass Shadow Hunter, that is.
I’m currently on chapter 12 and hopefully the storyline will progress in a magical, this-is-the-shadow-hunter-world and no-mundanes-allowed so brace-yourself-for-the-awesomeness-of-this-book kind of feeling.
It has 6 books and 3 books of prequel/sequel kind of thing and a wide range of followers and fangirls. So, I’m hopeful that it would live up to my expectations.
What are your opinions/thoughts about this book series?
