Book Hungry enters the CITY OF BONES

The Author: Cassandra Clare
The Book Hungry Biotch Responsible for this Month's Selection: Blake

Summary (as taken from Amazon):

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . .
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

My Thoughts:

I admit it.  I don't have any thoughts.  This girl *points at self* did not read this month's selection.  I had a bit of other things on my reading plate, but do not fear, lovelies.  I have read this, but it's been so long that I just can't bring myself to write a review to talk about all the awesome things I THINK I remember from the book.  I do remember that I liked it, and the more we chatted about CITY OF BONES during our meeting, the more I recalled little tidbits.

Will I read it again?  Most likely yes.  The movie looks awesome-sauce and when it was advertised while I was at the movies with friends, I kept saying to them "I read this book! I read this book!"

How about all you fun friends?  Have you read it?  What did you think?  Do share.  Until next month, when Patty has chosen for us to read GONE GIRL by Gillian Flynn
