City of Bones

I am a lover of Book Series!  I don't know how I always pick the books that are a series, but I am pretty good at it.  My latest series that I have started is The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare.  

The first book is City of Bones.  I read through this in a week.  Easy readying, it is written to attract the teenage crowd so some of the scenes noticeably written to this age group.  The characters are interesting and it did draw me into the story easily.  If you liked Twilight you would probably like this series.

I am now on the 3rd book and enjoying it very much.  

I am interested to see how the Movie Tie in does with this book. So far a great series.  I will follow up more and give my final thoughts on the entire series once I have finished.

My Favorite Authors... So Far

Reading is one of my favorite pass times.  I have a few author's who are my favorite's.  I hope to share the books I have read and what I liked about those books as well as share what I am reading, and who knows what all else I will discuss here.

I am sure I am not the only person who as a student really didn't find reading as something I enjoyed doing.  It was something I had to do.  After joining, "the real world" I found that I really enjoy reading and there are some stories out there that I can actually read over and over again.

Nicholas Sparks.  I love all of his books. I also love the movies they have made of his books.

 Harry Potter!  I am a total Harry Potter Geek and love rereading and rewatching these stories.

The Mists of Avalon I love this book and tried to get into the other books in this series, but they are very big... 

Outlander Series/ Lord John Series (Diana Gabaldon)  I love all of the books and stories that Diana Gabaldon has written.  She is a great author!

Inheritance Cycle (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance) by Christopher Paolini  I love these books!  Great stores!

Earth Children Series (Clan of the Cave Bear, The Land of Painted Caves, The Valley of Horses, The Plains of Passage, The Shelters of Stone)  I love these books as well.  It usually takes me a while to finish one of these.  They are quite big! I am working on The Shelters of Stone right now!

Lord of the Rings (who doesn't love Lord of the Rings!)  I can't wait for the Hobbit to come out in theaters... So excited to see how they did on the movie!

Twilight Series (yes... yes... I know!  I still love them)  

Hunger Games Series I read these books in literally 2 weeks.  There was no stopping me once I started.  I loved the movie and can't wait for the next ones to come out.  I think I may need to read these again... you know you always catch more the second time through!

These are the main ones... I have a love a series! (smiles)  It's a gift and a curse at the same time because i usually get hooked in one in the middle so I get to read one or two books... then I'm sitting there going, "where's the next one!"  

The last book I read was The Harbinger  I really loved this book.  It made me think on so many levels about so many things past, present, and future!  It is an excellent book and I recommend it to anyone looking for their next good book to read.

Well, that's all I can think of right now.  More to come!
