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?

Title: City of Fallen Angels
Series: Mortal Instruments
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publication Date: April 5, 2011
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry

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.


I had already featured City of Angels in an Cover Thursday episode [see here]. And you may have noticed that the covers are different. The Cover Thursday... well, cover, was just some sort of promotional tool or whatnot. As you can see above, the real book cover is different (well done, Captain Obvious). But, unlike other covers, the entire face could be seen now - at least Clary's. The other guy must be Simon.

Covers aside, no matter who it is slapped there, I can't wait to read this. The publication date falls after my uncle's birthday, too.
