City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
*editing my old review from years and years ago so I can share this on my blog just 'cause)
I don't know why I like this book series so much...oh wait, yeah I do. Cassandra Clare knows what we want to read. She knows that we the people love paranormal stuff. She knows we need generous doses of questionable-quality humor.
In short - SHE EFFING DELIVERS.
When I was in high school, still an insecure teenager endlessly questioning his sexuality, I almost disregarded Clare's work entirely just because of this book's cover. "AAAAAUUUUGGGGHHHH!!!!! The fanservice! The toned boy-flesh burns my EEEEEYYYYYYYEEEEEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" But we all know it's what's on the inside that counts. Be warned - if you come to enjoy this book, there are, to date, eleven more (including short-story collections) in the same universe to read and attempt. Good luck.
