More Books for 2014!

About fifteen minutes after I published yesterday's post with my list of books I"m looking forward to in 2014, I saw on Tumblr Cassandra Clare had released the cover of City of Heavenly Fire. Such is my life.

If you are curious, here it is:


The guy with the creepy blak wings is Sebastian, the evil twin brother, and the girl is Clary. (Which, if you know the series this is obvious.) I was kind of hoping the cover would feature Magnus, or Alec, or maybe even Isabelle. However, showing Clary doesn't surprise me at all, and neither does Sebastian.

I do want to note the excellent use of the pretty white virginal dress Clary is wearing.

Also - I completely forgot to mention one book that is coming out this year which I cannot wait for.

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

It is the third book in the His Fair Assassins series by Robin LaFevers. I just began the second book, Dark Triumph, and I LOVED the first one, Grave Mercy. I mean... it's about nun assasins. NUN ASSASSINS.

And one of these days, I'll get out of this blog writers block funk thing and write a real blog post. I promise.


  1. Sounds like a very interesting series!

  2. Em, have you read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children? I just finished it and the sequel came out a couple days ago. The books are a little weird but addicting!

    I'm planning on reading The Mortal Instruments series soon! You got me intrigued :)

  3. I only got through 2.5 books in the mortal instruments series before I became distracted and a little bored. I do plan on picking them up again and re-reading everything. Did you enjoy the movie?

    1. I totally understand! I'm starting to get bored with it too- especially the Clary/Jace relationship. Basically it's just now of "will they have sex, or won't they?" So I got more interested in the other storylines, especially after book 3 I think. But I'm invested in the characters so it keeps me going in reading them. I did enjoy the movie though! It wasn't anything spectacular, but I did like it a lot and I have the DVD.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
