I really appreciate... Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clarebooks
Cassandra Clare is the talented author responsible for writing one of the best YA series ever published!  I am talking about The Mortal Instruments- City of Bones, City of Ashes, and City of Glass.  These books are wonderful! The world that she created for The Mortal Instruments is vivid, beautiful, dark, dangerous, magical, and exciting all mixed together! Her characters are definitely one of my favorite aspects of her books. I fell in love with Jace while reading the series and I can't wait to find out the rest of Simon's story in the fourth installment of The Mortal Instruments series titled City of Fallen Angels. This book is due out March 31, 2011! Yeah!! But that is not all that lurks on the horizon for Cassandra Clare!! The Infernal Devices Trilogy is the highly anticipated series of prequels to The Mortal Instruments that will be debuting soon. The cover for the first book, Clockwork Angel, was released today! I love it!!! This book is set for release on September 7, 2010.  If you haven't read City of Bones, City of Ashes, or City of Glass then I HIGHLY recommend you do so! You won't regret it- I promise!
