    The Movie is a Spoiler Alert!

    ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!? At least that was my reaction while reading the first book. There were often times that I had to place my bookmark and step away from the book... take a breather if you will. The next 2 books reveal more about the characters' histories, in addition the third book ends as if the main adventure is over while the 4th book brings in new trouble.

    If you don't like spoilers DO NOT watch the movie before finishing the first 3 books. The movie pulls information from books 2 and 3 in order to make the movie more comprehensible and acceptable for moviegoers who pay attention to the little details. However it also spoils the surprise, or as I like to say when a critical event happens "The Plot THICKENS". My Advise, Read the first 3 books first then go and watch the movie. That way the books won't be spoiled.

    Happy Reading!

    Having just finished the Beautiful Creatures series, I was looking for something similar for summer reads. The story previews and cover art were interesting and since the whole series (except for #6 which doesn't come out until 2014 by the way!) were on a featured table at the bookstore I thought it must be good. Big disappointment - BIG! Very poorly written. The plot moves very slowly. Don't know how it manages to drag out for 6 novels. Could have been done in 2 or 3. A lot of repetition fills up pages, which I really hate when reading a series. Just because Stephanie Meyers says she loved it on the cover of the books did not make it a good series to read. I am furious with myself for getting pulled in to reading it, but since I spent the money I felt I had to do something. Now I am even more upset that there is a cliffhanger at the end of #5 and you have to wait until 2014 for #6. Maybe by then I will be over it and won't be compelled to waste any more of my time and money on it.

    I never know what to expect. As i was reading this book, it always kept me on my toes. When you think you know what it, you don't. I would re-read this whole serious again and again. We have mixed of everything humor, romance, action and a lot more. The books take place in New York City. Claire lives in a world of shadow hunter, Vampire and down welders. But she doesn’t know that. She doesn’t know anything about herself, but when her mother goes missing, she found out who she really is. As their searching for her mother she meets Jaces. She fall in love with Jace, but soon found out that their brother and sister. The author mad a huge twist in this. I didn’t except this. The author also gave me good images of everything. What the people look like and every room they went it, it gave clear view of the room.

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!!!

    After watching the movie City of Bones, I was compelled to read the books as I couldn't wait for the next movie to find out what happens next. And I do not regret it! I'm so in love with Jace<3, the relationship between Alec and Magnus and Isabelle and Simon! I'm in love with the just the series over all! I'm currently waiting for The City of Lost Souls to get here(#5)on Tuesday and I'm so excited! I'm anxiously waiting and dying to read that book and to then await the series finale book which comes out next summer May 2014! If you loved Twilight, you're going to fall in love all over again! I PROMISE!:D <3
