I have a goal of reading 52 books this year, obviously an average of one per week. I’m currently well on my way, with 39 books under my proverbial belt and two others on my shelf from the library waiting to be read.
I have always avoided books about magic or vampires or other “shadow” or dark worldy things, mostly because it always seemed like a lot of gibberish language to learn just to comprehend the book. I’ve never read the Harry Potter series or the Twilight books (I know, I know, nerd girl slander!). But recently I’ve gotten into a series about Shadowhunters, who fight demons and have dealings with vampires and werewolves. It’s the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, and I am hooked. They’re not a new series, though they are still considered current, and there is a movie in production of the first book, City of Bones.
I’m smack-dab in the middle of the series, having finished City of Bones, City of Ashes, and also skipped to the prequel Infernal Devices series and reading Clockwork Angel, which is set several centuries before the Mortal Instruments books but is set in the same world with similar Shadowhunter characters. I’ll give a full review in a few weeks after I’ve completed them all, but if you’re wondering what I’m reading these days, that’s it!
How about you? What are you reading now, other than board books?
