Waiting on Wednesday (16)
"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at her blog, Breaking the Spine. This event spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.
Aside from biting my fingers in anticipation over who's-playing-who in the upcoming City of Bones movie, I am buzzing with excitement over the release of the fourth book in the Mortal Instruments series; which would be about (*looks up at the countdown widget*) 55 days from now. I loved the first three books! They really, really tickled my imagination and my sanity... Did I just imply that I was insane? *shrugs* Who isn't nowadays?

Blurb from Goodreads:
City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.
