In My Mailbox: 04/03/11

{ ++ } Kristi of The Story Siren created this awesome feature, designed to give us bloggers a chance to speak out about the newest books we've bought or checked out.  It's a place to share the thrill of buying a new book, holding it in your hands, and wondering what kind of adventure it will become!  

{ ++ } This week I bought City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, the first book in the Mortal Instruments series.  

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....

{ ++ } I've been hearing about this series for a few years now, seems, and I've heard good and bad and great reviews.  But I'm such a fantasy girl at heart, and I always enjoy trying out new authors, and finding books that surprise me.  I have a few other books I want to get to before this one, but I'm looking forward to reading it and forming my own opinions!  

{ ++} What books did ya'll get this week?  : )

Of course you already know what I think of the series, as we've discussed this and sort of how to read them. lol. So, hopefully you'll get around to this soonish, at this moment I'm currently read Where She Went and you're definitely going to want to get to If I stay so you can hurry and get this one to, once it's released. :)
