Review "City of Bones" (I) and "City of Ashes" (II)

Yes! I finally did it! I started reading the The Mortal Instruments series and I already finished two books. Those books are pretty well known by everyone and it's kind of a miracle that I haven't read all of them by now.

The first important thing to say is: I started reading this series in German back in 2014. That was an enormous (fat - hehe) mistake. I stopped after the first 100 pages because the writing style wasn't for me and I didn't give the whole thing a second thought. I took a look at the German edition of City of Bones and it turned out it was translated by two people (Franca Fritz and Heinrich Koop) who (I'm sorry to say it this way) screwed this up. So one thing I definitely learned from this is: if possible, read the book in its original language!

I absolutely loved City of Bones. The story moved on really fast compared to City of Ashes. I really enjoy that there isn't just good and bad and it's simple to understand the villains motives. But I don't just love the inside: the book covers look amazing! Seriously, I'm almost obsessed with them. There are so many editions and I'm really happy that I got this one.

The cover of City of Ashes is even more beautiful in my opinion, the plot moved on more slowly though but I wasn't bored at any point. I caught myself laughing about the jokes and humorous comments that were made from time to time.

I know that not many fans of the books are fans of the TV show but I am. To be honest, I didn't quite enjoy the movie but the show is so much more fun! I feel like the books are much more suitable for a tv show than movies. I'm really excited for season 2 and I can't wait to get my hands on City of Glass.
