Some books change your life. They change the way you see the world. They do this not only with the story as a whole, but sometimes with an idea, a beautiful phrase, or even a word, that resonates with you the way nothing has before.
Sensational Quote Sunday is my way of paying homage to those books that remind me every day why I love reading.
This week, I’m en vogue and looking at one of the most successful YA Fantasy series of the last few years: Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones.
Not only is this a superb story, with cracking characters and a vividly drawn world, the writing’s not half bad either! The books aren’t really about the prose, rather the plot and the people, but that’s what made the occasional lovely turn of phrase so exciting.
