City of Glass

Wow, City of Glass was intense!  With about two hundred pages to go, I was soooo tempted to just google the end of it.  I just couldn't bear it!

I'm so impressed with the way Cassandra Clare wrapped up this series.  Yes, there's another book coming out, but this was such a good ending.  I almost wish there wasn't another one, because the end in this one was just perfect, and I want it to stay like that.  Slightly ambiguous, but happy.

I'm really proud of myself for figuring out everything.  Granted, I got some of it wrong, but I was excited nonetheless.

The character Clary in this book is so strong, but innately human at the same time.  I love it!  This author is absolutely amazing.

Yeah, I know, I don't have a lot to say, because I can't say a whole lot without spoiling the series for you.  Is it worth the read?  I don't know.  That depends on whether or not you like to delve into a world and start stressing over the characters, because that totally happens with this series.  I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but I do wish I had waited for the Summer to read this book and its predecessor, haha.  Goodness.

The only concern I have with this book is its lack of plot.  The previous two were so full of twists and secrets, but this one was more easily figured out, and we knew Valentine's plan the whole time.  But, maybe that's just what comes with being the third book in a series.  Usually it's the second that has the lull, but what can you do about it?

My rating: 7/10.

Go read it!
