"Waiting On" Wednesday 8

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments series, book 4)
By Cassandra Clare
432 pages
Margaret K. McElderry, to be released April 5, 2011

City of Fallen Angels is the fourth book in the bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.

“Love, blood, betrayal and revenge — the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels. Simon Lewis is having some trouble adjusting to his new life as a vampire, especially now that he hardly sees his best friend Clary, who is caught up in training to be a Shadowhunter—and spending time with her new boyfriend Jace. Not to mention that Simon doesn’t quite know how to handle the pressure of not-quite-dating two girls at once. What’s a daylight-loving vampire to do? Simon decides he needs a break and heads out of the city—only to discover that sinister events are following him. Realizing that the war they thought they’d won might not yet be over, Simon has to call on his Shadowhunter friends to save the day—if they can put their own splintering relationships on hold long enough to rise to the challenge.”

Check out that nice, flashy counter down on the bottom-right corner of my page, just ticking down the time to April 5, 2011, when the latest installment in the Mortal Instrument series is released. I'm THAT excited.

Jace and Clary are one of my favorite couples, and I'm excited to see what's in store for them next. It sounds like this book is more Simon-focused, and while he's never been my favorite, Cassie Clare is such a master at creating alternate universes that I'm more than happy to go wherever she's going to take me in City of Fallen Angels. Can't wait!

  1. Great pick. I still have to read the last book in this series. I even read Clockwork Angel but not City of Glass. Must get onto that :)

  2. Yes! Yes! Yes! This is my most favorite series (seriously - I know I say that a lot lol). And Jace - HELLO! He is my #1 swoon-worthy fictional character :-) I just about peed my pants when I found out she was going on with this series. Though I loved the ending of City of Glass, I wasn't ready to be done with these characters.

    Btw - nice ticker!! lol

  3. YES! Excellent pick, Anna! haha I'm dying to read this book, and I want them to reveal the cover already! :)

  4. CoFA was my first WOW and it's the best I can think of! I just loved the TMI series and Clockwork Angel and can't wait for Cassandra Clares next piece of brilliant work. Thanks for sharing:)

  5. Oh my gosh, I want this one so badly. Hell, I even just want to see the cover and that will satisfy me for a little bit.

  6. Haha what Melissa and Tara said!

    I like Jace and Clary but I really like Magnus Bane :) I usually find myself laughing whenever he is around.

  7. Wow, I'm behind - I haven't read the first book yet! Looks like a great series, thoughth!

    -Linds, bibliophile brouhaha

  8. I heard great things from her and I just added this to my tbr list


  9. This is one of my favorite series. I've been dying to get CoFA ever since City of Glass was released.
    Here's my pick.
