i love books. i love every kind of book. i just want to hug them all but i can't. can't hug every book, can't hug every book. (to the tune of "can't hug every cat."
After reading it a second time, I can conclude with that I didn't like it more than the first time, but I didn't like it less. My opinion on it hasn't changed. (That was a horrible conclusion, don't mind me.)
It has a slow beginning, but you do get into the plot after a while, and the characters are all easy to care about. Maybe you love them, maybe you hate them, but you care, and that's what shows good character-ship. (That's not a word.) It's if you're indifferent to the characters that the author is doing something wrong.
The writing style is so-so, nothing special, but the worldbuilding is interesting and believable, and the setting is cool. Cassandra Clare also writes kissing/romance scenes very well, but I think I've mentioned that in every single review I've made of a Cassandra Clare book, so you probably know that.
A good start to a good series.
