This is my second read of City of Bones and I thought maybe first time ‘round I had been smitten and that really the book wasn’t as good as I thought, maybe not worth the 5 stars I originally gave it………..NOT the case, on second read I was just as taken in by CC’s writing style and the world she has created as the first time I read it. I was so absorbed in the book that nothing else mattered, I read while I cooked I almost read while I ate and my kids (who are not so young anymore) had to fend for themselves until I’d finished it!!!!…….This is definitely a book I class as an ‘ultimate’ reading experience.
There probably are a few things that I didn’t like about the book but I can honestly say they must be small because I can’t recall them now! I know this book started out as HP fan fiction and a lot of people have a problem with fanfic of any type being published but I don’t, the story is not like HP even if originally the characters were loosely based on them.
