A mini-me version of Read All The Things!

City of Lost Souls

City of Lost Souls - Cassandra Clare I don't really understand the point of this book. The series made a perfectly good trilogy. These last two books were fluff. It felt like the author wanted to continue the series but didn't have enough ideas to keep it going. This book did have a lot of funny dialogue, and there was more action in this book than in the previous one, but there wasn't much of a plot. It felt like the book was mostly relationship angst and fade-to-black sex scenes. It got too repetitive. The constant physical descriptions of the characters (especially their hair and eyes) started to get on my nerves. Jordan and Maia's relationship creeped me out because he attacked her and ruined her life, and she forgave him and took him back. That bothered me a lot. Clary also bothered me. I was never a huge fan of her, but she was interesting enough in the other books. In this book, she was unbelievably stupid. For example, she decided that it would be a good idea to get high in the presence of her evil brother and possessed boyfriend. How could that possibly end well?

I didn't dislike this book (it was entertaining enough that I read the whole thing), and I didn't dislike this series (it was entertaining enough that I read this far), but I've decided that this series just isn't my thing. I probably won't be reading the next book.
