The City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
It's hard reading a series like this over years. Yes, years. I read the last book in 2011, and the first 3 in 2010. But since I'm reading them as they're published it can't really be helped. Although once they're finally all out, I'd love to sit down and read them all back to back to understand more of the story by reading it together.
But moving on... It's funny going back and reading my review of The City of Fallen Angels, because its different than memory. I remember being bored throughout it, but loving the cliffhanger. Although from my review, I guess I liked it more than I thought at the time. (Another reason it isn't fun waiting a year between books.)
But knowing that I remember the last one as boring, this one redeemed itself (and also brought me out of my book slump). There's so many different plots going on by know, and I loved how each was weaved throughout the story. And I really liked Clary's & Jace's interactions in this one.
As we've come to expect with Clare, there is a cliffhanger, but it's not nearly as crazy as the last one. And while I can't wait till the 6th (and final?) mortal instrument book comes out, I'm even more excited for the 3rd infernal devices book.
Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!
