The Mortal Instruments by cutie_marlena
Monday, September 17 2012 at 7:05 pm

This series is a great, light read. They are targeted toward teens, but I really enjoy reading them and so do my mother and sister-in-law. I would put them in a category with Harry Potter as they are fantasy and are similarly written. The series thus far includes 5 novels: Cuty of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, and City of Lost Souls. The author is Cassandra Clare.
If you liked Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, or even Twilight, then you'll absolutely love this series!

Cassandra Clare has also started a prequel series to the Mortal Instruments called The Inernal Devices. They are just as great and they're interesting because they reveal a lot about why things happen the way they do in the mortal instruments. The other interesting thing is that Cassandra is writting new books to both series at the same time so I read Book 5 of the Mortal Instruments then read Book 2 of Infernal Devices. It's pretty neat this way.

Like Marian Keyes by cathymahar

Does anyone know of an author whose style is similar to Marian Keyes. I've read everything she's written and although I enjoy other authors, I really like her writing style.

Quotes about Books, Reading and Writing by elahet0001

"When written in Chinese, the word crisis is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity."  John F. Kennedy

"Neither is a dictionary a bad book to read. There is no cant in it, no excess of explanation, and it is full of suggestions, the raw material of possible poems and histories."  Ralph Waldo Emerson

"There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written."  Oscar Wilde
 

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them.  Mark Twain

I love these!

Really Good author. I have a few of his books. Each one is different, but the books sometimes do get intertwined with various characters, etc. I suggest giving him a try.
