This week I’ll be moving on to Cassandra Clare’s, City of Bones. No, I haven’t read this series yet … I know, I know, but I’ve been crazy busy with my own writing. And what better time to start a series than right before it goes to film? So here we go:
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . .
Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.
Pretty cool, huh?

HA! It’s finally here!
THE FIRE BORN NOVELS
Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.
Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.
Or is that all in her head?
Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.
No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?
The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.
In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.
Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?
The answer may never be far enough … away.

This week on YA Highway’s Road Trip Wednesday Blog Carnival, the theme of love goes on …
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done for love OR what’s your favorite movie/book moment of someone doing crazy things for love?
That’s a loaded question. Let’s see … First off, I’ve done so many stupid/crazy things for “love” they’d be hard to count.
I could talk about the time I … or about … Nah … I’ll leave that to the imagination and head straight toward my favorite movie moments. Not sure I’d call these crazy, really, but I have A LOT of favorite moments. THESE ARE ALL SPOILERS! DON’T WATCH IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THESE ALREADY. 😉
Here are just a few:
SAY ANYTHING boom box scene with John Cusak
THE WEDDING SINGER airplane scene
THE ART OF GETTING BY
I am in love with this movie–the realness of it, but finding one good scene to show was impossible, so here are a lot of them: SPOILER!
Another incredible favorite of mine, but again–can’t find the end scene by itself … SPOILER!
There are my few for now. You guys? Favorite movie moments?
