City of Bones, and the subsequent books in The Mortal Instruments series, is written by Cassandra Clare.
The books tell the story of Shadow-hunters, half human, half angel. Okay, so it’s fantasy. Not everyone’s cup of tea, I know. But they are well written, with characters you can’t help but love, and action that keeps on coming. Most of all, the humour within the books makes them worth visiting and revisiting.
So why am I telling you this now? Well, later this year (23rd August) City of Bones is released as a film. Whether it will be as good as the books remains to be seen, but either way, I much prefer reading the book first. Don’t you?
Oh, Cassandra Clare has also written The Infernal Devices series. Well worth a look too. Great story telling always is!
Go out and sneak a perk. Then let me know what you think.
