Can't Wait for "The Mockingbirds"!

Name - The Mockingbirds 
Author - Daisy Whitney
Publisher - Little Brown
Release - November, 2nd 2010

Some schools have honor codes.
Others have handbooks.
Themis Academy has the Mockingbirds.

Themis Academy is a quiet boarding school with an exceptional student body that the administration trusts to always behave the honorable way--the Themis Way. So when Alex is date raped during her junior year, she has two options: stay silent and hope someone helps her, or enlist the Mockingbirds--a secret society of students dedicated to righting the wrongs of their fellow peers.

In this honest, page-turning account of a teen girl's struggle to stand up for herself, debut author Daisy Whitney reminds readers that if you love something or someone--especially yourself--you fight for it.

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Title: The City Of Bones
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: McElderry Books
Release: March 25th, 2008
Rating: 4/5
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go -- especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil -- and also her father.
To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings -- and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

Information from Goodreads.Com

Review - First of all this is the second book in the Mortal Instruments series so there might be some spoilers!

Well I don't know what to say. The beginning was amazing, but towards the end of the middle it got a little cliche.

I really liked the ending and epilogue. I think they made the book for me, they make me want to go and pick up the third book.

I liked the characters in this book a lot more than I did when I read the first book. In the fist book I found that most of the characters were annoying. I liked the new characters in this book. The inquisitor was good addition to the story and  Maia, the 15 year old werewolf and possibly Simon's new girlfriend. In this book we also got to see more of Valentine, Luke, Simon, Maryse, and Magnus.

All in all this was a pretty good sequal. I would recommend to all Harry Potter lovers out there.

What got me into reading

Well when I was in elementary school, I was always in the advanced readers group, but I was never a big reader. When I got into middle school I was obsessed with "The Series of Unfortunate Events" by Lemony Snicket. I read and re-read those books so many times, some of the pages started to fall out! Then when I was in sixth grade "Twilight"by Stephenie Meyer became extremely popular in my school. At first I wasn't so sure about the "Twilight" series, but my friends talked me into reading it. After I read it I was obsessed with reading, so I would say the "Twilight" series got me into reading.
Other books that kept me reading since - "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, "Beautiful Creatures" by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, "Bad Girls Don't Die" by Katie Alender, and "The Summoning" By Kelley Armstrong.
