Hi Dear friends! Lats week of our #T4AuthorsChallenge imagined by Collector of Book Boyfriends and Totally Bex! My author this week is Cassandra Clare!

For as much as I love reading “adult” books I also crave “young adults and new adults ” books too!

I love fantasy, PNR etc. and Cassandra Clare is my favorite author in the genre with Sarah J Maas, Holly Black and Renée Ahdieh!

Today’s topic is first book read.

City of Bones was my first read and the beginning of my love affair with Cassie’s books!

Synopsis (if you’ve lived under a rock so far)

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… Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.”


Now as much as I loved the book I despised the movie AND the TV show. I thought they were not true to the story and that was so disappointing!

What’s the first book that you’ve read by one of your top four authors?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Cassandra Clare is an author who was too hyped for me, and I tend to shy away from that. Also, I find a huge back list so intimidating.

    One of my favorites is C.S. Pacat, and the first book I read from her was Captive Prince. 🙂
