I am almost finished with the first book of the Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare. Before this book, I read the last Morganville Vampires novel – a fifteen book series by Rachel Caine which I enjoyed immensely. I needed a new series that wouldn’t pale by comparison. After witnessing my sister blast through the Mortal Instruments, I figured that was all the recommendation I needed. And I am not disappointed in City of Bones; I have been up too late many nights in a row because I can’t put it down. So if Cassandra Clare keeps the momentum through the series, I am in for a lot of good reads and late nights!
About the Author
I have loved books my whole life. Even before I could read them myself. The "Hobbies" section of every form I've ever filled out says: Reading. I've always had the utmost admiration for people who can invent a story that transports me out of my surroundings and into the lives of the characters. So as adult, when given a second chance to decide what I wanted to be, I thought, "If I could be absolutely anything I want, I would love to be an author." And I started to write. My hope is that readers will find the same great escape in my stories that I've found in countless novels. Writing is my way of 'giving back'.
