#READShadowhunter: City of Bones (Week 1)

By: Cait Marie

Hello, hello! I am so excited to start the City of Bones discussions this week! For those just joining us, Stephanie over at Books in the Skye put together this year-long Shadowhunter read-a-long, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it. We started in April with The Infernal Devices, and we just started the first book in The Mortal Instruments (my favorite!).

Full details on the read-a-long, including the full schedule and where to find past posts, can be found here.

Each week, I will be answering a couple questions based on the assigned chapters. Then, at the end of the four weeks, we will host a live chat on Twitter and I’ll share a full review.

Here is the suggested reading schedule for City of Bones:

  • June 24-30: Chapter 1 – 8
  • July 1-7: Ch. 9 – 13
  • July 8-14: Ch. 14 – 19
  • July 15-21: Ch. 20 – Epilogue

This Week’s Questions

Q1. While Clary is talking to Jace she receives an urgent call from her mom. Jocelyn warns Clary not to come home but to go straight to Simon’s and call Luke. However, the phone call is cut short and Clary runs home besides the warning. Would you have made the same decision or gone to Simon’s and call Luke?

A1. I probably would have made the same decision. I’m very close with my family, so if someone made that kind of distressed call, I would probably rush to wherever they were.

Q2. Clary is discovering this brand new world that she never knew existed. If you were here what aspect would you find the most interesting?

A2. This is a tough one! I think just the fact that it’s all real. I’ve always loved fairy tales and fantasy, so for all of that to be brought to life would be amazing.

“All the stories are true.”

Cassandra Clare, City of Bones
