City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)
The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (book 1)
From Goodreads:
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.

(Sorry, I`m not in the mood to make up my own summary.)
My reaction:
Utterly engrossing. Well, maybe not on the first part. It was kind of hard to adjust and get into the picture, until (I guess) the Jace-saving-Clary part. Funny, I always get interested in books that has hot male characters. And the stuff Shadowhunters do? It`s awesome. It was like a demigod fighting monsters, but this is like a warrior battling with a demon. And the amazing plot surprises? Wicked! Just when everything seems fine, well, problem and lies go out to shatter your perfect moment.

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)
Book 2.

From Goodreads again: 
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father. 
To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father? 
In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

My reaction:
Aww. I didn`t like about the brother part. It just didn`t seem fair. I mean, there are more secrets to be discovered, but why that secret? I was too broken-hearted. And that means Clary and Jace can`t be together? That could only turn out that Clary might love Simon. My Simon! And then the Inquisitor is hahahahaha stupid. Insane, I say. Incredibly mad. When did a villain suddenly go soft-hearted and chooses his son over power? Impossibru!  But I like what happened to Simon. I thought he was going to just die, but, now we`re a couple! This totally bites!

City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3)
Book 3

From Goodreads again:
To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters -- never mind that enter-ing the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadow-hunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadow-hunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City -- whatever the cost?
Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the final installment of the New York Timesbestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.

My reaction:
Sebastian. Is. Annoying. He`s a two-faced jerk. But ew he kissed Clary. Talk about disgusting. Finally, Jace and Clary could be together again. For real this time. And I hated how Valentine was easily dispatched from the world. A villain for three thick books suddenly died after being swatted like a fly by an angel? Impossibru! Potato!

City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4)
Surprising book 4.

From Goodreads:
The Mortal War is over, and Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She's training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most important of all—Clary can finally call Jace her boyfriend. 

But nothing comes without a price. 

Someone is murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her. His mother just found out he’s a vampire and now he’s homeless. Everywhere he turns, someone wants him on their side—along with the power of the curse wrecking his life. And they’re willing to do anything to get what they want. At the same time he’s dating two beautiful, dangerous girls—neither of whom knows about the other. 

When Jace begins to pull away from Clary without explaining why, she is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: She herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace. 

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. The stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

My reaction:
Yes. I`m still craving for more Jace&Clary moments, and also Alec&Magnus moments, and this book didn`t fail me at all. And then, Sebastion being alive but preserved? Certainly ew-worthy. That just sucks. Poor Simon for being forced to bit him. I`m sure demon blood is the worst blood of all. Aaaaaand I seriously need to read the 5th installment in this series that was supposed to be a trilogy only.

City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments, #5)
Don`t they look sweet? Though Clary`s flaming red hair does not go well with the red backless dress.

Oh, and I told you before. I am not a formal book blogger, which almost notices everything. I`m the kind who`s SCREAM-AND-FANGIRL-OVER-THAT-BOOK-ALL-YOU-WANT type.
