Am I the only one who wishes she was a Shadowhunter? Cassandra Clare manages to combine all my favorite supernatural species with a pretty cool world. City of Bones is one of my favorite YA books and not just because of the characters and story lines, but because of the lingo. Clare did what few authors are able to create, a literary language that crosses over to pop culture. Mundanes and Downworlders alike can agree that a turn of phrase hasn’t been embraced by fans like this since HP had everyone bummed that they were muggles instead of witches and wizards. If you want to immerse yourself in a world you won’t want to leave pick up a copy of City of Bones.
