City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – My Review

Hey guys! It’s been a while… sorry about that. My life sorta became a mess back when I first started this book blogging site. But I am back now and really excited to review The City of Bones!

So I know I a little behind here and most of the books I will be reviewing are kinda old but that’s just the way this site works!

Goodreads Summary:

When fifteen-year-old 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 strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy? Continue reading the rest here.

The review is wayyyyy down below and the in-between is just filler to how I got around to reading City of Bones, I’ll state down where the review starts 🙂 !

Let’s start from the beginning…
I watched The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) movie back when it first came out and I found the plot interesting enough that if a second movie came out I would watch it. Unfortunately, that second movie did not come and so that just stayed there.

Skip to 2016 and Freeform came out with a series named Shadowhunters, which I found again interesting enough to watch it. I know some people have quite a few issues with the series but since I had not read the book series I was just viewing it as a new series on Freeform. I have to say that I absolutely loved it! #Malec #SorryNotSorry

Anyways let’s jump to a little closer to the present timeline. I started working for a company and during my free time, I would just read articles when I got a suggestion from Amazon on the City of Bones. I told myself repeatedly that I would not read the book series because I was afraid of not liking the series anymore, but I was so drawn to that Ad that I clicked on it and got the first book.

The Review

I honestly thought I had a pretty good idea of how the book would be and I was so wrong!! Its safe to say that I was genuinely surprised not by how good it was in my taste but how good every difference was. I was not angry by any of the changes because they were so good. I understand that fans of the book were/are mad at the changes in both the movie and the series but I don’t get to feel that because I came with the movie and series as a base.

The beginning of the book was “WOW’, I really enjoyed being so into Clary’s POV, her mind is just fantastic and she doesn’t even know it. Simon is every bit the lovesick fool and lets just talk about Jace and the Lightwoods.

Jace was ever more attractive in the book then Dominic Sherwood he was frustrating and so damn loveable it was so sick!! His attraction to Clary is so visibly felt I was fanning myself lol.

The Lightwoods are quite the pair and yes I am speaking of Izzy and Alec. They are just fantastic, their bond is very real and you can visualize their annoyance and protectiveness for each other.

I really want to divulge into the couples but I don’t want to spoil anything if you haven’t read the series or seen the show/movie but let’s just say that as you get more into the serious tension rises. If you’d like for me to talk more about the couples let me know and I’ll gladly do a post on them.

But for now, I say it was a great decision to read this book and start to enjoy the Mortal Instruments Series.

Rate: This is a definite 4.5/5 I really enjoyed this!

My whole review summed up in a couple of emojis:


See you all soon!


One thought on “City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – My Review

  1. I loved this series when I first read it so many years ago. It makes me sad to think of how unhappy I was when she published city of fallen angels. Such a disappointment. However the first three are fantastic! The romance, action and the funny dialogue, gets me every time. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Good luck with the rest. 😊
