City Of Bones

City Of Bones

by Cassandra Clare

SYNOPSIS:

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder – much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing – not even a smear of blood – to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know….
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

Ok.. so, even though it says that I read it in like 4 months (that was the first time I put my hand on it anyways), in fact it took me less than 2 days to finish it because, after I got into it the way I wanted, I just couldn’t put it down.

With the good and the bad, I really liked this one (an interesting story, with a lot of action, some likable characters, some not that much, i hated some parts, but I loved some other.. and oh, did I mention Jace? No?! Well he is kind of the main reason I wanted to read this book, even though near the ending I had second thoughts – but for just a moment)…what can I say, this is my new guilty pleasure.

I won’t say that it’s great, I won’t say that it’s fabulous, i will just admit that this time I was in the right mood and I had a great/fabulous time while reading it. 😀

Movie – first look

They gotta be kidding me! o_O

I just can’t get past the first picture on IMDB:

Is this their definition of confidence and beauty.. and charisma, good looks and charm?!
I think I might have the wrong dictionary, because you see, I just don’t get it. Nope.. I really hope he is a good actor because I can’t picture him as Jake, not one single bit, not at all. *sigh*

Movie Update:

I had a change of heart after seing the trailers:

Fuck good looks, I need an actor to act not to pose for me! (hopefull this guy will be all that) … And I think this might be the first ecranisation that I will actually love.

PS: Well, the movie was kind of ‘meh’, but they probably did the best they could do.
