Reading City of Bones

Hey there pixies!

It's currently 1:51 am here and I'm still wide awake. I made myself a cup of coffee an hour ago because I was craving for caffeine and now I can feel the effect. Usually, I drink coffee to make myself sleepy. Yep, it has that effect on me. Am I weird or does anybody know someone who has the same thing going on with them when they drink coffee?

Why am I talking about coffee anyway? That's not the point of my blog today. What I want to talk about is the book City of Bones. As some who might have read my previous blogs, I mentioned that I've been reading books with dystopian themes like the popular Hunger Games series. I just finished reading the Maze Runner trilogy (I love it but the last book is not on the same level as the first two books in my opinion). I felt there's something missing with the last book Death Cure but anyway, I'm not gonna dwell on that subject. I'll save that for a later post.

Anyway, City of Bones is not about dystopian theme, it's a fantasy book with an urban setting. It is the first book out of six in The Mortal Instruments series. I've seen the film before I started reading this one (I'm not yet done reading it) and so far the film changed and erased a lot of things from the book. Still, even though the film didn't follow a lot of things from the book I will still watch the second film (if ever they continue making it) not because I'm a fan of Lily Collins - the girl who portrayed Clary, the heroine of the series but because I still love the concept/idea of the story.

Anyway, I think I might need to read the book again once I'm done as there are parts that I wasn't able to digest well. So if you are interested with urban-fantasy story, this book is for you.

Sorry for this quick post. I'm supposed to make an "Art Dump" post as I've got lots of drawings I want to show you but I'm using my brother's desktop. I'll upload my artworks for the past weeks here when I'm using Yuffie (my laptop) alrighty?

Swish and flick!
