She wore paint-spattered overalls over a lavender T-shirt, and brown hiking boots whose soles were caked with oil paint. People always told Clary that she looked like her mother, but she couldn't see it herself. The only thing that was similar about them was their figures: They were both slender, with small chests and narrow hips. She knew she wasn't beautiful like her mother was. To be beautiful you had to be willowy and tall. When you were as short as Clary was, just over five feet, you were cute. Not pretty or beautiful, but cute. Throw in carroty hair and a face full of freckles, and she was a Raggedy Ann to her mother's Barbie doll. Jocelyn even had a graceful way of walking that made people turn their heads to watch her go by. Clary, by contrast, was always tripping over her feet.

City of Bones
Okay- so its like... 11 A.M and i finally finish the book. Yeah, that's how good it was. I started it around 7 that night and read all through the night, not closing my eyes except to blink. I couldn't put it down; it was so good. Really refreshing to finialy read something that good after some many mediocre novels.
The people were real, in my face, and totally 'there'. You know? I melted into the story and felt like I was there, and it was fantastic! so, if your a big book lover, sink your teeth in and go along for the ride...

Jace Wayland - superbly perfect & superbly flawed at the same time!
The wit, the charm, the strength, the humor, the intelligence... the glorious body of a warrior with a face of an Angel... *Sigh*
I'm so glad I found this series. I'm going totally crazy over the entire series!
Jace in particular! "The Mortal Instruments"

the music made it like a dream, someone else's life, not her boring real life at all. But she was always too shy to talk to anyone but Simon.


Add to my quotes

He looked less as if he were contemplating the powers of darkness and more as if he were on his way to chess club.


Add to my quotes

He could smell her mortality, the sweet rot of corruption. Got you, he thought.


Add to my quotes

Humans were so stupid. They had something so precious, and they barely safeguarded it at all. They threw away their lives for money, for packets of powder, for a stranger's charming smile.
