What book have you been putting off reading forever? I put off reading #CityofBones for years. Even before I was serious about getting back into reading it was on my radar and I was a big fat “meh” about taking the leap.

I just finished it, and here’s my #realbookreview on it.

OK so it was good. All you #MortalInstruments fans weren’t totally crazy.

But it was way dramatic. If you haven’t read it yet, to give you an idea of the drama level, the best way for me to summarize the story for my hubby was to make everyone in the book #GilmoreGirls characters. If you’ve read it, try re-telling the story with Clary as Rory (keep Luke as Luke, switch out Jace for Jess, Simon for Dean etc...). You’re welcome in advance. If you’re not enough of a Gilmore Girls buff to follow that train of thought, sorry to leave you in the dust, let’s get back to the point.

Let’s be real, it was a teen soap opera. There were basically four unrequited love stories, two surprise parentage reveals, and a few scenes that seemed like they did nothing except get the main character in dramatic trouble just to get her in trouble.

And yet, I was entranced. The world was awesome and everything I wanted in a fantasy shadow hunter plot. The dialogue wasn’t forced or contrived. The mysteries (plural) were compelling and the pacing was really good.

I’ll definitely keep reading the series. If you’re a fan, tell me what you love about it! Are you in it for the drama? The mystery? The action? The romance? Or all of it?
