Waiting on Wednesday (14)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
I first heard about it from PageTurnersBlog.

My Waiting on Wednesday this week:
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Publication Date: April 5, 2011

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

City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

I’ve only read the first book, City of Bones (review), from this series and I really enjoyed it and like reading about the world that Cassandra Clare has created. I have City of Ashes on my TBR shelf and am planning to read it ASAP. My sister just bought me City of Glass for my birthday yesterday, so now I have that to read, too. The slight problem is that I lent City of Ashes to my roommate to read and won’t get it back until April, so I have to wait until then to continue with the story! As much as this is a bummer, I’m really happy that I got my roommate to read this series and that she loves it! It’s one of the reasons I love book blogging so much: spreading my love of good books and introducing people to new books that they’ll love.

Unless you live under a rock or something, you’ve probably heard of The Mortal Instruments series and Cassandra Clare. She’s a great writer and has created an awesome world with the Shadowhunters. I’m “waiting on Wednesday” for City of Fallen Angels because I know this series is going to continue to only great things and can’t wait to delve back into Clary’s world and see where it all goes.

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
