Yes, it is that time of the week. The day we dread and wish would never come- Mondays. *Wipes tear* But have no fear, Memory Lane Monday is here! Every Monday, here at TheYABookworm, I'll do a special post called Memory Lane Monday. What's that you ask? Memory Lane Monday is a once-a-week post where I (or any other bloggers that wish to participate) choose one book that I've previously read to be featured on that day. From the book chosen, I will pick two of my favourite quotes and write a little blurb containing my quick thoughts on the book. The books that I choose will not be books I've reviewed- since I've read so many books, I want to share with you my opinions on ones that I won't get the chance to fully review (because seriously, rereading dozens of books would take a year...or two)! Be sure to participate by leaving your "Memory Lane Monday" in the comments, or a link to your blog post with the hash-tag #MemoryLaneMonday on twitter :D
This weeks (and the first) Memory Lane Monday...
City Of Bones By: Cassandra Clare
#1 “Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
..."At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
#2 “Don't order any of the faerie food," said Jace, looking at her over the top of his menu. "It tends to make humans a little crazy. One minute you're munching a faerie plum, the next minute you're running naked down Madison Avenue with antlers on your head. Not," he added hastily, "that this has ever happened to me.”
Since the release of City Of Lost Souls is quickly approaching (next Tuesday!!!) I thought it would only be appropriate to kick off the first Memory Lane Monday with City of Bones by Cassandra Clare! Even after all these years, City of Bones has still remained one of my favourite, favourite books. Not only is this book hilarious (I had a hard time choosing ONLY two quotes....there are many more) but it is also filled with one of my ultimate favourite love triangles. Equipped with a kick ass heroine, a super hot shadowhunter, trusting friendships, and lots of unexpected secrets, City Of Bones is the perfect book! I'm really looking forward to seeing the film adaptation with Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower! See you next week for another memory :)
