Waiting on Wednesday (24)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a WoW. *cracks knuckles* *shakes out muscles* Let’s get going. Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This Wednesday, I’m waiting on City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare, (yet) another installment in The Mortal Instruments. It’s releasing May 2012.

Summary (goodreads):

In Book 5: City of Lost Souls, the Shadowhunters struggle to piece together their shattered world after a betrayal by one of their own leaves them reeling.

And that is all Goodreads tells us. Any of you who are familiar with TMI series know that the ridiculous cliffhanger on that last book makes me want to figure out what the heck is going on with that Jace, even though I thought that the series should have ended at book 3.

There are so few urban fantasies I love that this is one I’m keen to follow just to show myself that I’m not just, you know, one of those readers that never goes out of her comfort zone. So I love this series, I love Simon, and even though I’m frustrated that TMI keeps going on and on when it should have ended long ago, I’m looking forward to reading this one.

Also, that cover: I love. I’ve always thought that Clary was pretty meh, but she does have a choice between two hot guys I like a lot more than her. Jace looks like a bit too baby-faced here for his character, but his HAIR. ZOMG, HIS HAIR. I love it!

My question is, when is Simon gonna show up with Clary? HE’S my favourite.

What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday?

    EWWW THAT COVER. I’m sorry, but this looks more like an urban fantasy romance than an urban fantasy. >_> (And there’s a difference. >>_>>) Sorry. I’m being a superb downer. But I’ve heard enough bad things to stay away from Cassandra Clare. :P

    I have yet to read up this series.

    The guy on the cover makes me think of Alex Pettyfer. Don’t you see the similarity?

  4. OMG OMG OMG!!! This one sounds REALLY good :) I love the cover and the premise. Great pick!!! Can’t wait to pick this one up!!!!

    Tempest and The Eternal One’s Giveaway!

  5. I love Cassandra Clare! I finished reading Clockwork Prince not too long ago.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! =)

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I hope that you found a book there that you may be interested in.

    I have the first 3 books of The Mortal Instruments but I haven’t started them yet. I should really get to them soon because I am already so far behind in reading the series. And of course then there is The Infernal Devices books to start too.

  7. I haven’t read this series. I haven’t even heard of it; I don’t live under a rock.
    What I’m waiting for on this Wednesday? Erm… I’m waiting for my cousin to arrive from Islamabad and hand me the entire Twilight book series.

    I want to read it and hate it even more than I do already :P

  9. Sadly, I have yet to read this series, but it is on my long TBR list. Someday for sure! I love all the covers.

  10. Hah hah, I agree-Jace is a bit too baby-faced here, and I’m kinda “meh” on Clary as a character, too. But HER hair looks like it’s on fire! Which is awesome. :D
