Quote of the Week

"I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library."
Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice)

City of Lost Souls

I finished City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare a few days ago and I'm obviously going through withdrawals.  I keep thinking that I will be able to pick it back up before I go to sleep tonight and finish the story.  Then I realize I've already finished.  How sad is that?  I need something to fill the void quick!

At first I thought, "I'm not loving this one as much."  I was very sad about this, but as it went on I still grew to love it.  There was a lot of "love" in this one and a lot of different love stories, but they still didn't make up for what I wanted from Jace.  I just wasn't in love with him like I was in the others.  THEN there was a scene where he was suddenly himself again and I remembered just about every reason I fell in love with him in the first place.  I still love Jace.  That probably doesn't make sense to those of you who haven't read theses books, but I assure you that once you do read this one, it will make sense.

There was a twist in the end of this one that was very unexpected and I can't wait till the next one comes out!  Sadly, it won't be coming out for quite some time.  I shall have to yet again fill the void with other books.  And then when it's all over I may just have to read them all again. 

I hope you are all reading something wonderful!

I totally know what you mean! I kept thinking, "Man, he's such a loser in this book," and then THAT moment...COMPLETELY different guy, the same one from before and it just yanks at you. I really think you need to pick up Blood Red Road next:)
