Teaser Tuesdays #43 – May 19th: City Of Ashes


TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’ve started reading City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare the other day. I’ve read the first book of The Mortal Instruments series September last year and I wasn’t really blown away by it, but my TBR jar decided it was time for me to continue the series. So far I’m not really convinced; I actually enjoyed the prequel trilogy The Infernal Devices way better…


My teaser (51%):

“Simon watched Clary as she leaned against the refrigerator, biting her lip like she always did when she was upset. Often he forgot how small she was, how light-boned and fragile, but at times like this—times when he wanted to put his arms around her—he was restrained by the thought that holding her too hard might hurt her, especially now when he no longer knew his own strength.”


What are you reading right now?

    • I wasn’t convinced by City Of Bones either and I’ve only decided to continue because I drew the series when I used my TBR jar… I’m not feeling it so far, but since I’m not too far into the story yet I still have hope it will improve. 😉
