This post about Cassandra Clare and her books was written by Tamara from Tamara's Book Ramblings.
Where to being?
One simple question, but with so many answers that it makes it the most complicated in the world.
I don't actually remember how I heard about Cassandra Clare or The Mortal Instruments. All I know it wasn't so long ago. So, I searched through her website and got interested in TMI. So, I decided to give it a shot. And wow, I don't think I would be exaggerating when I say that those books turned my life upside-down. That good. So good.
I have been searching for a book that wowes me, that is new, fresh, captivating and brilliant. Ms. Clare accomplished that.
City Of Bones was and no matter how many times I re-read it, still is, a mesmerizing book. Though it's written in 3rd person, I connected with the characters and their stories and emotions. The story is interesting, flows along perfectly, full of surprises, rollercoasters, and, if I may, one damn hot boy! If Jace is not on your fictional boyfriend list, he should be! And if you haven't read TMI, you really, really should!
I can't say anything bad about Cassandra Clare, wheter it's about her writing, or herself. She is really nice and loves her fans and gives us sneak peeks, giveaways and other things! Also, I want to mention The Infernal Devices, another series set in the Shadowhunter world, but a little earlier. I haven't read this one YET. But I know it's great and I must pick it up soon.
So, to wrap up this post, I think Cassandra Clare has managed to become a wow and a hit in the writing industry and I personally think she will stay there for a very long time :)
Also, Cassie Clare is one of rare authors from who, no matter which genre or how many series she wrote, I'd read all books.
Just that good.
Thank you so much Tamara! :)
