The Mortal Instruments


Ok is this serie of books that I fell in love with. You would actually think I’m going all around London, exploring.. But in fact I’m just searching good quite places where I can read. These books are soo amazing. My heart is breaking all over and over again.. but Oooh. You can’t understand. I’ve spent the past week reading, sometimes till the morning. I’ve spent the whole last two days in Starbucks at Piccadilly Circus reading and drinking White Chocolate Mocha. I’m getting obsessed. But actually I’ve quite missed that, because after Twilight and Vampire Academy I’ve just kept reading and rereading it all over again. And finally this is sometihing new. And there is nothing more amazing and exiting then reading a book for the very first time. After the first time, you’ll allways know that will happen next, but the first time you don’t know anything. And it is so exiting you keep reading it till you finish it. And then it’s over. Like so fast. And every time I keep telling myself that the next book I’ll read I will read it slowly, especially if is that intresting. But actually never ever succeed in that. And so when I finish the whole serie so fast, I normally start to read it again – normally the best parts. Sometimes I would love to erase my memories, just so I can read the book again like the first time ♥
Excerpt from City of Ashes (pag. 85-87): The one I fall in love with and the one I’ve been crying in relief. Ahh.. AMAZING!
The Queen’s smile was wide and terrible. “What if I told you she could be freed by a kiss?”
“…”
“That hardly seems necessary,” Simon said. “If a kiss is all…”
“No,” said the Queen, in a voice like tinking crystal. “That is not what I want either.”
Isabelle rolled her eyes. “Oh, for the Angel’s sake. Look, if there’s no other way of getting out of this, I’ll kiss Simon. I’ve done it before, it wasn’t that bad.”
“Thanks,” said Simon. “That’s very flattering.”
“…”
“Well, I’m not kissing the mundane,” said Jace. “I’d rather stay down here and rot.”
“Forever?” said Simon. “Forever’s an awfully long time.”
Jace raised his eyebrowns. “I knew it,” he said. “You want to kiss me, don’t you?”
Simon threw up his hands in exasperation. “Of course not. But if-”
“I guess it’s true what they say,” observed Jace. “There aro no straight men in the trenches.”
That’s atheists, jackass,” siad Simon furiously. “There are no atheists in the trenches.”
“While this is all very amusing,” said the Queen coolly, leaning forward, “the kiss that will free the girl is the kiss that she most desires.” The cruel delight in her face and voice had sharpened, and her words seemed to stab into Clary’s ears like needles. “Only that and nothing more.”
Simon looked as if she had hit him. Clary wanted to reach out to him, but she stood frozen to the spot, too horrified to move.
“Why are you doing this?” Jace demanded.
“I rather thought I was offering you a boon.”
Jace flushed, but said nothing. He avoided looking at Clary.
Simon said, “That’s ridiculous. They’re brother and sister.”
“…”
“Like you’d kiss Alec,” Simon said, “just because the Queen of the Seelie Court asked you to?”
“Sure I would.” Isabelle sounded annoyed. “If the other option was being stuck in the Seelie Court forever? Who cares, anyway? It’s just a kiss.”
“That’s right.” It was Jace. Clary saw him, at the blurred edge of her vision, as he moved toward her and put a hand on her shoulder, turning her to face him. “It’s just a kiss,” he said, anf though his tone was harsh, his hands were inexplicably gentle. She let him turn her, looked up at him. His eyes were very dark, perhaps because it was so dim down here in the Court, perhaps because od something else. She could see her reflection in each of his dilated pupils, a tiny image of herself inside his eyes. He said, “You can close your eyes and think od England, if you like.”
“I’ve never even been to England,” she said, but she shut her eyelids. She could feel the dank heaviness of her clothes, cold and itchy against her skin, and the cloying sweet air of the cave, colder yet, and the weight of Jace’s hand on her shoulders, the only things that were warm. And then he kissed her.
She felt the rush of his lips, light at first, and her own opened automatically beneath the pressure. Almost against her will she felt herself go fluid and pliant, stretching upward to twine her arms around his neck the way that a sunflower twists towars light. His arms slid around her, his hands knotting in her hair, and the kiss stopped being gentle and became fierce, all in a single moment like tinder flaring into a blaze. Clary heard a sound like a sigh rush the Court, all around them, a wave of noise, but it meant nothing, was lost in the rush of her blood through her veins, the dizzying sense of weightlessness in her body.
Jace hands moved from her hair, slid down her spine; she felt the hard press of his palms against her shoulder blades – and then he pulled away, gently disengaging himself, drawing her hands away from his neck and stepping back. For a moment Clary thought she might fall; she felt as if something essential had been torn away from her, an arm or a leg, and she stared at Jace in blank astonishment – …
Isabelle turned to Clary. “Can you leave now? Are you free?”
Clary went to the door and was not surprised to find no resistance barring her way. She stood with her hand among the vines and turned to Sinom. He was staring at her as if he’d never seen her before.
“We should go,” she said. “Before it’s too late.”
“It’s already too late,” he said.
There is also an excerpt of this moment from Jace’s point of view and I feel so dumb that I’ve found it out only today, only now. Dooh. And ofcourse I LOVE IT!! But actually. How to say, I don’t know.. reading from the point of view of Clary for me it was so obvious and yet Jace haven’t perceive anything like that. I’ve always tought that Clary’s face was like an open book, but then maybe I was wrong, or maybe Jace was just like every other guy who simply doesn’t get it what’s on girls mind :P  

After 842 pages OMG OMG AAAA FINALLY!!! Jace ♥ just please please don’t die now!!! :’( Here I was actually so so happy. Finally after so many heart breaking stuff, we finally find out the truth from Clary’s mother. And there it was, when I got a bad feeling, that something bad will happen to Jace. :( This book is amazing for how many feelings can get out of you. Hope. 
There must be a way for Jace and Clary ♥
…And ofcourse there is allways a way ;)


And "Oooh My Oooo!!! This is unbelievable, OMG OMG!!! This is the best Jace's point of view EVER! I love this moment in City of Glass!! Ooooo!!

The letter Jace had wrote to Clary before he left her, to go after Valentine: http://www.cassandraclare.com/cms/jaces-letter
Excerpt from City of Glass (ending): The one I actually cried so much. Before that and after that too. ♥
“You’re alive,” she whispered. “Really alive.”
With a slow wonderment he reached to touch her face. “I was in the dark,” he said softly. “There was nothing there but shadows, and I was a shadow, and I knew that I was dead, and that it was over, all of it. Anf then I heard your voice. I heard you say my name, anf it brught me back.”
“Not me.” Clary’s troath tightened. “The Angel brought you back.”
“Because you asked him to.” Silently he traced the outline of her face with his fingers, as if reassuring himself that she was real. “You could have had anything else in the world, and you asked for me.”
She smiled up at him. Filthy as he was, covered in blood and dirt, he was the most beautiful thing she’d ever seen. “But I don’t want anything else in the world.”
Relief.
And now we’ll see how it will go on in City of Fallen Angels :)
And it went ok.. Until the last two pages, where my heart had been broken. Jace ;( The book was amazing till the and full of surprises. But the last surprise was.. let’s face it: AWFUL. I mean “What the hell?!” How am I suppose to wait that long till the next book comes out?! 
I will need to wait until May and it feels like eternity. Ahh. I could die until May?! So sad.
