Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The purpose of the event is to spotlight the upcoming releases that readers are most looking forward to.

Ah! My first WOW. I've thought it was a cool idea since I first heard about it, so... I'm excited to begin. This week, I've chosen...

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release date: April 5, 2011
City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels. (Summary taken from Cassandra Clare's website).
What a great way to start off my venture into the Waiting on Wednesday world. I absolutely adore everything written by Cassandra Clare and I am just itching to get my hands on this! The cover is beautiful, just like every other one of hers and from what I've read thus far, the story should be excellent as well. Even though Simon wasn't who I wanted to end up with Clary, I do love him as a character and believe that he deserves to be happy with someone else! At this point, I can't even decide between Isabelle and Maia - I guess I'll just have to wait for COFA to help me make that choice.



  1. First off, welcome to book blogging :D New follwer :)

    Secondly, I can't wait for this book either, I'm so glad she is writing more books with these characters. Though makes me wonder, if continuing was a good thing or bad thing, cause sometimes dragging on things can make the series go down hill, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this book will be amazing.

    Here is my WoW,

  2. Oh, look! My first two followers :D Is it ridiculous to get this excited over it? Thanks!

    @ Catherine: I know what you mean. A lot of the times, I find myself banging my head on a wall wondering why the author dragged the story on into a ten novel series. Hopefully Cassandra Clare knows what she's doing! She has yet to disappoint me so I guess we'll just have to wait and see :)

  3. I love these books... Cant wait for this one!!!
