#FridayReads [4]

Today, and this weekend, I’ll be rereading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It has been quite awhile since I last read this book, so I thought a reread was due! Plus its 10 year bookaversary is coming up!

City_of_Bones

When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons–and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It’s also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in an ordinary mundane like Clary? And how did she suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….

For those of you who don’t know, this is the first book in The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. The same series the TV show Shadowhunters is based off of. Have you read this series? Do you watch the show?

Musing Mondays [1]

  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Of course, IMHO, any  time is a great time to read — but, if you were forced to choose the best season for reading (in your own opinion), what would it be? Why?

This is my first Musing Monday, and I thought it would be fun to do. So here we go! I haven’t read anything in Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00008]awhile because I’ve been in a weird not-wanting-to-read mood and I absolutely hate it. However, lately I’ve been wanting to get back into reading. So I think I’m going to pick up Sweet Fall by Tillie Cole.

This is the 2nd book in the Sweet Home series, and the first book in the Carillo Brothers series. I’m pretty excited about this because 1) Tillie Cole is a GENIUS! I’ve read 5 of her other books, and I always get so invested in her stories. 2) The newest book in the Carillo Brothers series is coming this month and it sounds so good, so I want to be able to read it!

Random Question- If I had to choose, I guess Summer would be the best season for reading. Mainly because I’m not a fan of the heat so I really love to stay in where the air conditioner and fans are!
