We return to the modern day, and to a disappointing book. If there is a plot in this book, it has escaped my notice.
I was very impressed with the premise of this book, an American writer writing about the UK is quite unusual, and I am a fan of the Victorian era.
This book was a wonderful conclusion to the first half of the series.
The second book in the mortal instruments series sadly suffers from middle book syndrome. It is not as good as the first book, the plot is lacking, and the new characters are boring.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, having not enjoyed it the first time I read it I did not enjoy it. Several years later, I decided to give it another go and enjoyed it massively.
A new month is upon us, so it is time for another TBR. This time, for Shadowhunter September.
I haven't read as many books as I was hoping to this month, although I still have a week to go, let's see what I have read so far...
