City of Bones

City of Bones By: Cassandra Clare

This book was a roller coaster ride. My head is still spinning with all the twists and turns this book had. I enjoyed this book quite a bit and would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed reading the divergent series.

"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..." (review by Amazon)

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them By: Newt Scamander

I cant believe it has taken me so long to read this book, especially with me being a HUGE Potter fan. My husband and I read this together in honor of remembering the time that I forced him to listen to me read Harry Potter in the car on the way to work till he became interested. :p It was fun and nostalgic to read this book together. It was a lot of fun to read and I would recommend this book to any Harry Potter fan.

This book is an A-Z of magical creatures that Newt Scamander has found in his various journeys; including the ministry of magics danger rating, as well as a short history of various monsters and locations.
