Rating: 5/5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

“Break my heart. Break it in pieces. I give you permission.”

I don't recall giving my permission though. I don't recall allowing Cassandra Clare to wreck havoc on my soul and stomp on its pieces before scattering them to the wind. But she did it anyway.

“Entreat me not to leave thee,

Or return from following after thee-

For whither thou goest, I will go”

The parabatai oath always makes me weep.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) 20, Jun

Rating: 5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

“Shadowhunters: Looking Better in Black Than the Widows of our Enemies Since 1234.”

I read City of Bones for the first time 5 years ago. I still remember that day. The sun was shining, the birds were singing It was during my first semester in Law School and I had to study History of Law, which was a complete waste of time because seriously, who is ever going to ask me whether women in Byzantium could get a divorce? (In case you are wondering, they could only if the husband was impotent or possessed). Aaanyway, I wanted a break and I grabbed this beautiful book and started reading until I finished it, bleary-eyed, disoriented and obsessed. A typical day in Kat-verse.
