Book Review: City of Bones by: Cassandra Clare

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments)

Clary Frey gets thrown into a world of demons, magic, and murder when her mother is kidnapped from her home. She soon learns startling and some disturbing things about herself and the new friends who helped her.

I wanted to like this book, I continued to read it because I wanted to like it and the series, but I just don't. I read the entire thing, there was some humorous parts, the usual teen angst, love, betrayal, all that, but the story line was kind of slow for me, and the plot twist at the end...that you do not see coming, left me feeling a bit disturbed. It reminded me of the Connolly books by Charlaine Harris, if you know what I mean. The world just wasn't real for me, maybe because I am not a teenager. I don't know, but I won't read the rest of the series....just doesn't seem worth it.

I give this 3/5 stars. ★ ★ ★


  1. I just bought this book. I hear it's good but afraid it won't hold up to my expectations....

  2. I have to say I am 30 and this series is in my top 5 faves. Maybe read the other 2 and see if you still feel the same. I really love this series and CC has taken it:)
