It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Welcome to Turning Pages!!

I started off this week, with reading City of Ashes, by Cassandra Clare.

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)

"Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father. To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father? In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation."

I'm only on chapter six so far, school has been kept me busy yesterday, but tonight I'll have plenty of time to lay back, and read for a few hours. I've heard tons of amazing things about this series, and I really wish I would have read it as soon as I purchased it, instead of having it just sit around.

I'm also reading another book (do you guys do that too? Read more than one book at a time?) which is The Darlings In Love by Melissa Kantor.

The Darlings in Love

"The Darlings have just begun their second semester of ninth grade, and love is in the air. Victoria: The sweetheart Jack: The irresistible songwriter…but is he writing off Victoria? Natalya: The overachiever Colin: The perfect match, if only the game were less complicated Jane: The drama queen Simon: The Greek god… of mixed signals In the face of both joy and heartbreak, the Darlings know that they'll always have each other. Boys come and go, but the Darlings are still forever."

I am about halfway through this book, and it's just the cutest thing! I love it, and I think I'm might just post my review early for this book!

  1. I hope you're enjoying City of Ashes!

    I rarely ever read more than one book a time. The only exception is when I am reading a book for class alongside a book for my own enjoyment.


I love hearing what you guys have to say, so don't be shy and leave a comment!
