Book Review: The Bane Chronicles

There are a few companion novels to Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, but as this one is centred around my favourite character, I just had to read it. The first thing I noticed was how well the changing time periods were reflected in the language and writing. As a warlock, Magnus has lived through […]

Book Review: City of Heavenly Fire

Wow. I cannot believe the series is over. I started this series thinking it was just another paranormal YA series, which it was in some ways, but I ended up falling in love with it as the series progressed. Now I’m gonna have to go and buy the gorgeous box set and read them a […]

Book Review: City of Lost Souls

I can’t believe I’ve nearly finished this series! First of all, I would like to complain about the cover. If I hadn’t heard so many great things about this series then I probably would have avoided it, simply because it looks like a typical teen paranormal romance atrocity. The story is actually way more action-based […]

Book Review: City of Fallen Angels

This series is so exciting! I’m absolutely loving it. This installment of The Mortal Instruments series follows Simon a lot more, including his difficulties caused by his being a Daylighter vampire. We also get an insight to his love-life which is getting rather complicated… Clary and Jace are together at last, but his nightmares are keeping […]

What am I currently reading? Still working my way through Sugar Skulls, The Boy Who Fell to Earth and The Summer I Turned Pretty, and I started Poison Study about ten minutes ago. What did I finish reading recently? I finished the third book in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Glass, earlier today. I know, I know, I really need to read […]

Book Review: City of Glass

This is the third of six books in The Mortal Instruments series. At 500 pages, I was slightly worried about this. The other two books were rather long too, and I had no problem with those, but I still feared that I would tire of this partway through. That was luckily not the case – far from, […]

Book Review: City of Ashes

This is the second book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. So the last book contained a lot of fighting, mixed emotions, demonic activity and a hell of a lot more excitement. This book was very much the same. Thrilling fight scenes, confused lovers, a ton of creepy demons. Who wouldn’t love it? Clary’s mother […]

Book Review: City of Bones

I’ve heard so much about this series, so I’ve got the whole series out of the library. It’s nearly midnight; I’ve stayed up reading until I finished this book! This sounds like any other paranormal YA book really, and I suppose it is pretty much the same as all the others in many ways. But […]
