City of Bones - Cassandra Clare When I read this book the first time, I had never heard of Cassandra Clare, so the whole drama surrounding her person was foreign to me. Sadly, I have come to a point, where I can no longer ignore everything that is wrong with her actions. While I will not lie by saying that I didn't love these books, I must say I am quite happy that I ever only lend them instead of buying them. I am not one to rate books after the feelings I have for an author, but I no longer want to contribute to the hype of this series either, hence, I will retract my ratings.
