This hop features books that have been made into movies or TV shows.
So, I chose a book that I LOVE!
But before we get to the Giveaway, a little about City of Bones (for those of you who haven’t seen the Wicked-Awesome Movie Trailer!)
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?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. 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 ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . .
I have to admit, I read this series right after I finished Twilight (back when the first Twilight movie came out). I was strolling through Borders and saw these books prominently displayed on an endcap with praise from Stephenie Meyers all over the front covers. So I HAD to have them!
The first thing that grabbed my attention was Clary’s insatiable curiosity. From the start, I could NOT put this book down! From the magic system to the supernatural creatures, throw in some awesome action scenes, and of course, budding romances. Ah! This book was just filled with juicy yumminess, complex characters, an expanding storyline, twists and turns and surprises, hidden cities, tasty teases, and snarky supernaturals! The author is SO GOOD at writing scenes that got my heart pounding and blood flowin’! Seriously, I got so sucked in to this story that I forbade myself from reading it on my lunch break at work. No, for this story, I wanted the comfort of my own home so I could gasp, shudder, cry, laugh, smirk, and fantasize!
I will say, I was totally miffed at the ending. I won’t go into details. I’m sure a lot of you out there already know the part I’m talking about. So yeah, I was pretty peeved at Clare for doing that to her readers. Still, I’m a romantic at heart and hoped that the author would eventually reveal something, whether it be some twist, some magical act, whatever – to mend the tortured heart I was vicariously experiencing through Clary. So, naturally, I jumped right in to the second book, City of Ashes.
Obviously the book has received a strong following being that it has hit the Big Screen!
