This series has been hit or miss with me. I loved book 1 City of Bones which I devoured in only a day or two - this was mostly due to the starky humour that Cassandra Clare injects into her characters. However, book 2 City of Ashes, was a bit blah for me as I felt it was predictable and repetitive with the humour lacking from book 1. I was therefore hesitant to continue with the series but, after hearing more and more great things from fellow booktubers and bloggers, I decided to carry on.
I did enjoy City of Glass, however all the fantastic elements – Sebastian, Idris, Clary’s Mum etc - were all a bit flat for me as I’d either been spoilt already (Sebastian’s reveal) or had predicted it was coming (Clary’s Mum). This makes reviewing this book very hard as I really can’t say I really liked it because there was just no excitement. The hard part is because I know if I’d not been spoilt on some of the story developments I would have loved it more. I therefore have to review this book only 3 stars because of the reasons I’ve previously described. I will be continuing with the series, but not in a rush.
