Book Review: city of fallen angels by cassandra clare

Summary via Goodreads
City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever.
Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

book review

woooh! just finished reading CoFA! the wildly anticipated book of 2011. *inhales* *exhales*

i was really scared to read this book, cause i love this series, probably one of the best series i've read so far and i have seen a lot of bad reviews about this book and i'm the kind of reader that stops reading a certain book if i didn't like the previous one. so any-who i still manage to give it four stars. but i still don't know if i gave the proper rating. sheesh! this book is really hard to rate and judge! so anyway let's proceed to my review.

Book Cover:

my first time to criticize a book cover. yay! so here's the thing i really don't know why Clary is in the book cover. i mean come on?! what did Clary do in this book ahm hmmm let's see... straddle her legs in jace's hips, kiss Jace's lips, grope Jace's muscle and a lot of groping,kissing,groping... haha! ok. i'm not an anti clary but i really don't get the idea of her being in the cover. i guess it will be OK if simon is in the cover, cause simon is really kick ass in this book he is the only reason that the story is strring.


in my review in City Of Glass, i stated there that i wish that Jace and Clary won't lost their spark, cause you see when love is not forbidden anymore it kinda losses it's magic. well DANG! i think they lost it's spark! *grunts* well their love is still kinda somehow still forbidden but sheesh! when jace is pulling away from Clary and those "i-don't-wanna-lose-you-and-i-can't-stay-with-you-cause-i-might-hurt-you" crap is EDWARD CULLEN-ish! and the last thing i wanna do is to compare Jace to Edward! ay-yay-yay.!

on the plus side!
-i adore SImon! i super love SIMON! i worship SIMON!
awww! simon is soooooooo hot in this book! haha! i think i'm gonna be team simon now *weep*
-i like how ms.Clare introduce me to Camille and Lilith. they are pretty interesting characters. :)
-i love the Rain-Alley scene! yay! too bad izzy showed up.. :(

so did this book disappoint me?

well i'm 30% disappointed 70% satisfied. but it would be a really,really wise choice if Cassandra Clare just ended the book in City of Glass.

i was actually thinking of giving this book a 3 star rating but the ending is really good! and i guess i so-so kinda like the groping and kissing scene of jace and Clary. so i am not kinda actually excited for the next book, i mean i guess i can wait for it, i guess i won't go insanely crazy when the book is out. haha! i am more looking forward to Simon and Izzy relationship.

so here is actually the reason why i'm not excited for the next book:

* i hate seeing Jace being all tormented again! huhu. i hate it when he will torture himself again, and i hate it when those pianist hands of his will kill all the people he loves oww! and i know sebastian will do anything EVIL... gosh! i really can't bear the thought of Jace hurting Clary or anyone... ahhhh! i better fancy Simon instead so that it will be easy for me to accept the story line of the next book. haha~ XD.
