The Time Will Come #13 *CITY OF BONES*

'The Time Will Come' is a Thursday book meme which began at Books for Company, where we pick a book we've been meaning to read but haven't got around to yet, one that's been sitting on our shelf gathering dust for a while...

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, Book 1) by Cassandra Clare

I got this quite a while ago from an Aussie Swap
It has a topless dude on the front cover, with swirly patterns on his body. What the heck is going on there? And why is light streaming out from his skin? 

The book also has the New York City skyline on the cover which is nice. I love NYC. One of my favourite places in the world. 
The story sounds pretty interesting - from the blurb it seems like there's some invisible war going on... death in New York City, monsters, darkness - seems pretty gothic and very paranormal. Though it doesn't really say, I'm betting there's some sort of romance that'll be intertwined in there somehow. 

'S'not really that high on my TBR pile priority list. 
I read a quote somewhere that you should always read a classic in between every other book you read. So right now I'm reading the Great Gatsby, next will be Friendship on Fire, then Jane Eyre, then A Game of Thrones, and so on... 
Hence, this book will probably be about 20 or 30 something on my TBR pile. 

Have you read City of Bones? If so, how much did you like it?
