Don't look at me, I'm hideous right now.

 

By which I mean this page.  Srsly, don't look at it until I have it all fixed. 

 

Until then, you can read my regular blog here.

 

I was/am also sj on goodreads.

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments)

City of Bones  - Cassandra Clare (this book got the full Trashy Tuesday treatment.)goodreads is asking 'What did you think?' and I'm having a difficult time figuring out what to say.I think if I was in junior high - and wasn't familiar with all of the tropes and clich├ęs that were used and abused in this book - I probably would have liked it, but I'm a grown woman and the borrowing of other universes was a bit heavy handed. If it were geared at the young side of YA, I would have forgiven much of what was wrong with it - but it wasn't. If I weren't familiar with Cassie Clair Clare's background, I would have forgiven much more - but I am. As it stands, I'll read the rest of them since I already own them, but it will be with much sighing and eye-rolling.I don't even think I can give it any stars right now. I'll figure that out at a later date, I guess.
