    This book cost me around 600 dollars. When I'm traveling to and from conventions, I use the airplane time to catch up on my reading. A lot of times this means I'm taking the opportunity to read books that have been popular for a while, but that I haven't gotten around to. I feel li...

    All right, so when we last left our creepy incestuous couple, Draco had just found out his dad was Voldemort, not Lucius Malfoy. Clarmione also found out that Draco was her brother, so that hot makeout session they'd had partway through the first book was now kind of icky, and further ...

    I didn't go online, hardly talked, didn't eat (ok so I did eat), didn't watch TV just so I could finish this book. So basically I spent the whole day reading and I'm just bursting at the seams to read the next one. The tension in the book is so great that you feel like the character...

    I can't do it. I just can't. Screw this series. My problem with this series isn't the writing. I'm not one to judge books by the writing since I am pretty terrible at it myself. My problem also isn't exactly the story, which I probably could like. Sort of. I think. I don't kn...

    "That when he thought, really thought, about the fact that he might never get to kiss Clary again, he wanted to die or hurt or bleed so badly he?d go up to the attic and train alone for hours until he was so exhausted he had no choice but to pass out, exhausted." Oh for fuck's sak...

    Reread: January, 2016 1st Read : July, 2014 This series continues to amaze me! I loved it the first time I read it and even gets better the second time around. There are lots of crazy and hilarious moments in this installment. The characters are all engaging and the way they intera...

    The following review is filled with spoilers, whining, complaining, ranting, and the destruction of everything people love about this series. Please read responsibly. When last we left our intrepid heroes, Clary "Mary Sue" Frey discovered she was part of a super special group of peo...

    Ok first things first, kids -- the whole Cersei Clary and Jaime Jace thing is straight up weird. Like even if he turns out to not be her brother (nobody tell me anything), they still think they're siblings right now and are really not making a strong effort to not be in love... ...

    City of Ashes; a (very) brief summary : Clary: Jace: Simon: JacexClary: Plot: Me: The end. (Maybe one day, when I grow up and become a real girl, I'll write a proper review) ...

    I know I just now finished the second book of this series, but it feels like such an accomplishment every time I finish a book. I've seriously fell in love with this series so much. More than I ever expected to and I'm hoping I can stay with this series until the end since most people ...

    For the love of God! Will someone kill Valentine already? He's getting on my last nerve! Okay here I am having read the second book again. I have one more to go and then I will be reading the ones I haven't read yet. As I was going along I could remember it so that's a good thin...

    This was a reread for my Mortal Instruments read-along! I liked this one so much more than I remember and thought I would when I reread it! So much happened that's so crucial and just YEEESSS ...

    City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare Actual Rating: 3.75/5 This book was so much better than the first in my opinion, but I could be thinking this way because my vision of the first book in the series was clouded by my vision of the movie, but, nonetheless I really enjoyed this book ...

    WOWEEEEEE. Well that was WAY better than the first book. I am FEELING some FEELS. ...

    ?If you really love something, you never try to keep it the way it is forever. You have to let it be free to change.? City of Ashes (CoA) follows right after what happened in book one. The tension between Jace and Clary is tortuous, I can't even fathom how deep the ruptur...

    5 Stars! 'A pair of werewolves occupied another booth. Arguing about who would win in a fight: Dumbledore from the Harry Potter books or Magnus Bane' (Page 406 - Clary Fray) - I would love to know the actual answer to this! CoA picks up right after the drama of CoB; Clary and...

    ?I've got a stele we can use. Who wants to do me?" "A regrettable choice of words," muttered Magnus.? City of Ashes were definitely better than City of Bones, it wasn't as predictable and Clary wasn't as annoying as before. I'm not a big fan of the writing style though, I think...

    This book was much better than the first. And I love Simon. ...

    ****DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CITY OF BONES**** This is an outstanding follow-up to City of Bones. In City of Ashes, we find Jace and Clarey dealing with the personal fall-out from City of Bones, Alec and Isabelle not as visible but are still included, Simon still mackin'...

    *sigh* I don't know what it is. Maybe it's the fact that my taste in YA novels are changing. Maybe it's because since reading the first MI book in 2009, I have read so many better book series. Whatever the reason, CC just does not impress me. The writing is bad and she has poor use...

    City of Ashes, on the whole, is a much more cohesive piece that City of Bones. That said, I had two major problems with the text. The first major problem I had was with the role of adult characters in the book. There was a constant dichotomy of 'with the main characters equals good'...

    City of Ashes; a (very) brief summary : Clary: Jace: Simon: JacexClary: Plot: Me: The end. (Maybe one day, when I grow up and become a real girl, I'll write a proper review) ...

    I know I just now finished the second book of this series, but it feels like such an accomplishment every time I finish a book. I've seriously fell in love with this series so much. More than I ever expected to and I'm hoping I can stay with this series until the end since most people ...

    City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare Actual Rating: 3.75/5 This book was so much better than the first in my opinion, but I could be thinking this way because my vision of the first book in the series was clouded by my vision of the movie, but, nonetheless I really enjoyed this book ...

    ?If you really love something, you never try to keep it the way it is forever. You have to let it be free to change.? City of Ashes (CoA) follows right after what happened in book one. The tension between Jace and Clary is tortuous, I can't even fathom how deep the ruptur...

    5 Stars! 'A pair of werewolves occupied another booth. Arguing about who would win in a fight: Dumbledore from the Harry Potter books or Magnus Bane' (Page 406 - Clary Fray) - I would love to know the actual answer to this! CoA picks up right after the drama of CoB; Clary and...

    ?I've got a stele we can use. Who wants to do me?" "A regrettable choice of words," muttered Magnus.? City of Ashes were definitely better than City of Bones, it wasn't as predictable and Clary wasn't as annoying as before. I'm not a big fan of the writing style though, I think...

    This book was much better than the first. And I love Simon. ...

    ****DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CITY OF BONES**** This is an outstanding follow-up to City of Bones. In City of Ashes, we find Jace and Clarey dealing with the personal fall-out from City of Bones, Alec and Isabelle not as visible but are still included, Simon still mackin'...

    *sigh* I don't know what it is. Maybe it's the fact that my taste in YA novels are changing. Maybe it's because since reading the first MI book in 2009, I have read so many better book series. Whatever the reason, CC just does not impress me. The writing is bad and she has poor use...

    John no longer uses this account. I have no patience for this bullshit any longer. There are many ways to state an opinion that is in disagreement with this review, and so far, many of you have FAILED to do so. I will no longer tolerate disparaging comments. Rethink them if you don't w...

    All right, so when we last left our creepy incestuous couple, Draco had just found out his dad was Voldemort, not Lucius Malfoy. Clarmione also found out that Draco was her brother, so that hot makeout session they'd had partway through the first book was now kind of icky, and further ...

    I guess 9th times the charms because I loved this book way more than I ever had. I think in my adolescence, I spent a lot of my time comparing City of Ashes to other books in the series. This reread, I viewed this story as an individual entity, which allowed me to better appreciate the...

    4.5 STARS ? I keep sitting down to write a full (read-long) review of this book because I enjoyed it so much, but I struggle so hard on writing my thoughts for sequels in a long running series. I know I'm not supposed to include spoilers in them (even though this book is older tha...

    Picking up where 'City of Bones' left off, 'City of Ashes' doesn't waste any time before plunging you right back into this supernatural world. This book was packed with action and adventure. With ever-changing information and plenty of teenage angst, this cast of characters tries to st...

    I didn't go online, hardly talked, didn't eat (ok so I did eat), didn't watch TV just so I could finish this book. So basically I spent the whole day reading and I'm just bursting at the seams to read the next one. The tension in the book is so great that you feel like the character...

    Well that was awkward. *** SPOILERGRAM*** But before we head down the path of outrageous incest, I will say that City of Ashes was better than City of Bones. The pace was an improvement on that of the latter. Simon was still awesome as ever. I also felt that Ms Clare branched out...

    I can't do it. I just can't. Screw this series. My problem with this series isn't the writing. I'm not one to judge books by the writing since I am pretty terrible at it myself. My problem also isn't exactly the story, which I probably could like. Sort of. I think. I don't kn...

    "It?s not just that someone belongs to you, it?s that you give yourself to them.? A year long, shadowhunter buddy read with my fellow Will Herondale lover? What?s not to love! It?s with a heavy heart that I?m giving this 4 stars don?t get me wrong I love CASSANDRA C...

    4 Family Matters Stars Spoilers Short and sweet so I can get to the next book. Wow City of Ashes was action packed and full of teenage angst. And I loved it! I feel this book focused a lot on Simon and all the changes that happen to him. I liked seeing the character growth ...

    #1 City of Bones ????? #2 City of Ashes ????? #3 City of Glass #4 City of Fallen Angels #5 City of Lost Souls #6 City of Heavenly Fire I was originally going to give this installment 4 stars like I did with the first one, but after I thought about it for a whi...

    I'm beginning to understand why people prefer Jace Wayland to Edward Cullen. I have to OH SNAP the ending. Is it March yet? I want City of Glass NOW. ...

    "That when he thought, really thought, about the fact that he might never get to kiss Clary again, he wanted to die or hurt or bleed so badly he?d go up to the attic and train alone for hours until he was so exhausted he had no choice but to pass out, exhausted." Oh for fuck's sak...

    Reread: January, 2016 1st Read : July, 2014 This series continues to amaze me! I loved it the first time I read it and even gets better the second time around. There are lots of crazy and hilarious moments in this installment. The characters are all engaging and the way they intera...

    The following review is filled with spoilers, whining, complaining, ranting, and the destruction of everything people love about this series. Please read responsibly. When last we left our intrepid heroes, Clary "Mary Sue" Frey discovered she was part of a super special group of peo...

    Ok first things first, kids -- the whole Cersei Clary and Jaime Jace thing is straight up weird. Like even if he turns out to not be her brother (nobody tell me anything), they still think they're siblings right now and are really not making a strong effort to not be in love... ...

    City of Ashes; a (very) brief summary : Clary: Jace: Simon: JacexClary: Plot: Me: The end. (Maybe one day, when I grow up and become a real girl, I'll write a proper review) ...

    I know I just now finished the second book of this series, but it feels like such an accomplishment every time I finish a book. I've seriously fell in love with this series so much. More than I ever expected to and I'm hoping I can stay with this series until the end since most people ...

    For the love of God! Will someone kill Valentine already? He's getting on my last nerve! Okay here I am having read the second book again. I have one more to go and then I will be reading the ones I haven't read yet. As I was going along I could remember it so that's a good thin...

    This was a reread for my Mortal Instruments read-along! I liked this one so much more than I remember and thought I would when I reread it! So much happened that's so crucial and just YEEESSS ...

    City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare Actual Rating: 3.75/5 This book was so much better than the first in my opinion, but I could be thinking this way because my vision of the first book in the series was clouded by my vision of the movie, but, nonetheless I really enjoyed this book ...

    WOWEEEEEE. Well that was WAY better than the first book. I am FEELING some FEELS. ...

    ?If you really love something, you never try to keep it the way it is forever. You have to let it be free to change.? City of Ashes (CoA) follows right after what happened in book one. The tension between Jace and Clary is tortuous, I can't even fathom how deep the ruptur...

    5 Stars! 'A pair of werewolves occupied another booth. Arguing about who would win in a fight: Dumbledore from the Harry Potter books or Magnus Bane' (Page 406 - Clary Fray) - I would love to know the actual answer to this! CoA picks up right after the drama of CoB; Clary and...

    ?I've got a stele we can use. Who wants to do me?" "A regrettable choice of words," muttered Magnus.? City of Ashes were definitely better than City of Bones, it wasn't as predictable and Clary wasn't as annoying as before. I'm not a big fan of the writing style though, I think...
