"City of Glass" by Cassandra Clare

Why I read it: Wanted to know what happened next, and the boy will probably ask me why I hadn't, if I didn't read it.

Bookmark: Chapters Love of reading fund

Tastes like Chicken: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the series. I tried to turn the boy onto Buffy after finishing this book, but he wouldn't even put season 1 in the DVD player. Wimp!

What I liked: Jace's conflict was good.

Not so much: The boy told me one of the key plot points (maybe I should have waited until I forgot before I read the book, so it wouldn't have been ruined) so I spent a lot of time knowing something I shouldn't have known, and therefore guessing something about another character that should have come as a complete surprise.

Lesson: I can read a series from start to finish. Sometimes I wonder.
