City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

I really liked the first two books of this series, which is all I have read so far. Clary's world is compelling and full of the kind of details that make you wish you lived there. Clary is an interesting character, although I am not sure I "liked" her. I had some of the same conflicts that I had with Bella in the Twilight books- when will these girls realize that totally hot and full of conflict guys are WAY overrated! Stick with the boring, nerdy and nice guy who loves you. You will be happier in the long run!

If you liked Twilight, this is better. If you like good looking, moody guys, this is a book for you :-)
