  1. 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 like I should be aware of the landscape Anyway, on my way home from Seattle, I had a layover in Minneapolis I grabbed this book so I d have something to read while I was eating dinner in the airport So I ate dinner, and I r [...]

  2. 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 want me to delete them Thanks,John s SisterPS John is not male She changed her gender status so she would not receive misogynistic comments, or gendered insults JFYI.I will tell the complete and honest truth And I will [...]

  3. 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 physical involvement strictly verboten.So Voldemort is still alive Oh noes Enter the Clave and the Inquisitor, Dolores Umbridge Umbridge has been sent to see if Draco is telling the truth that he had no idea Voldemo [...]

  4. I guess 9th times the charms because I loved this book way 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 complexities and conflicts that arise in this sequel I had such a fabulous time rereading book two and cannot wait to continue rereading the rest of the series

  5. 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 stay one step ahead of Valentine, making for a highly entertaining read.Still reeling from the news that they re siblings, Jace and Clary struggle with their feelings toward one another Awkward doesn t begin to describe th [...]

  6. 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 characters are literally going to break from the strain Clary s mother is still in a coma and her relationships with Simon and Jace are fragile At one point you just feel so down for everyone Clary seemed to be getting in the way [...]

  7. 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 a wee bit with her creativity with the Vampire transformation stuff, except that I knew it was coming thanks to a certain Filipino minx who spilt the beans in a comment You know who you are.As for the abomination that is the Clary [...]

  8. 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 know But anyways, my main problem isn t any of that.It s the characters.How can you continue with a series when you feel nothing but pure hatred towards the characters They all just infuriated me to no end Jace Wayland especially He w [...]

  9. 4 Family Matters Stars SpoilersShort 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 in this book for Clary, Jace, Simon, Alec, and Izzy I really didn t like Maryse, I felt like she really let Jace down Poor Jace it was like no one loved Jace Everyone turned their back on him or let him down even Clary All he wants [...]

  10. That aggravating moment when you can t decide if you should rate a book based on its first 70% 3 stars or its last 30% 5 stars RTC

  11. 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 CLARE so much She s 1000000000% my favourite author This was initially a five stars for me when I first read this book, but there s this nagging feeling in me that really really hates the whole Simon Clary Jace triangle, and Clary frustrate [...]

  12. 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.

  13. 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 sake He d have bruises in the morning, bruises and cuts and scraped skin and if he could have named all his injuries they would have had the same name Clary, Clary, Clary OH FOR FUCK S SAKE If there had ever been any hope tha [...]

  14. Reread January, 20161st Read July, 2014This 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 interact really entertains me I especially love Simon and Jace s banters here And that part when they went to The Seelie Court my favorite part Although Jace kind of disappoints me with his moody attitude, I still can t resist him i [...]

  15. 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 loveIt s just unnecessarily drawn out and got kind of old Like so much of the plot is this odd sexual tension The gold in his eyes had turned hard, metallic She wondered for a moment if he might actually spring at her, what it would b [...]

  16. 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 people called Shadowhunters That should be two words, by the way She falls for shmexy jerk face Jace, only to find out that he is her brother and that they are the long lost children of stock baddie, Valent Oh, I can t do th [...]

  17. 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 have said they stopped or less halfway through But so far, I ve been so wrapped up in the Shadowhunter world that I don t see myself stopping any time soon I m so excited to see what else The Mortal Instruments has [...]

  18. 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

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

  20. City of Ashes by Cassandra ClareActual Rating 3.75 5This 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 a lot .I rated this book a 3.75 stars, so that there s room for higher ratings as the series goes on and hopefully gets better City of Ashes got the 4 stars because it had me constantly thinking about the book, and finally [...]

  21. 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 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 thing Oh and I will be adding SPOILERS for those that haven t read it yet And look at my beautiful UK edition Although, it would be a better picture if I would actually get up and make a pretty scene but I digress So Simon turns into [...]

  22. 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 Jace still struggle for their feelings for one another, Jocelyn is still unconscious and Valentine is still at leather and very much evil Other crack teams get bat boomerangs and wall crawling powers we get aquatruck Page 326 Clary Fray [...]

  23. 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 rupture grows, but it sure affects everyone in this book I appraise the story that it gets better, the twists and narrative sounds intriguing from the start except Clary I don t know what makes her annoying like that, she can t stop herself [...]

  24. 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 it makes the characters sound immature and younger than they are most of the time.

  25. 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 on Clarey but finds his own bit of trouble, and Magnus Bane cementing himself as the flamboyant, awesome warlock I knew he would be And then there s the psychopathic Valentinerrr You think she ll be able to talk some sense int [...]

  26. 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 of similes I didn t feel the love Jace felt for Clary If anything, I felt downright embarrassed that Jace was pinning over his sister and pretty much not caring All the while, Simon is in the corner about to be sick It was [...]

  27. City of Ashes, on the whole, is a much 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 and against the main characters equal bad evil and life is never that simple Luke, who always supports Clary, Simon, and Jace is firmly in the good category Maryse is slightly different In the beginning of the book she is com [...]

  28. I am sorry I have better things to do than read this Like clean my bathroom with a toothbrush, get a root canal, or slowly kill myself by mixing Drano in my soup Peace outs.
