BOOK COVER - CITY OF LOST SOULS by CASSANDRA CLARE - THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS # 5 - GORGEOUS, AWESOME, SWOON...WE HAVE A FACE TO JACE!!



BE STILL MY HEART!!

THE COVER

OF

CITY OF LOST SOULS

IS SWOON WORTHY

WE HAVE A FACE TO JACE

FINALLY!!

Looking at the cover we have Jace and Clary, lots of runes on their bodies and they are in each others arms ( wonderful!!) and I just saw on twitter, Paris, if I understood correctly. Ha! and apparently Jace has a Brazilian butt....on further inspection..yup! it's a nice tush!


I remember when I first laid eyes on this series in Big W , it was the same day I bought The Hunger Games.  I knew nothing of both book series. I purely went on Stephenie Meyer had her blurb on the front cover of City of Glass. It had just been released. Stephenie also had a blurb on The Hunger Games. I had been on my Merry-Go-Round of reading Twilight, 4 books, 9 times!! and it was time to get off. These were the first 5 books ( 3 x TMI and 2 x The Hunger Games) I had bought to read to get me off the Merry-Go -Round I was on.

Thank goodness Stephenie had her blurbs on them. I loved my Twilight saga, so I went with Stephenie as I hadn't heard much about both series , back then.

I have been in love with TMI series and Cassandra's writing ever since and I love The Hunger Games, I do have Mockingjay phobia...* shakes head* too scared to read last book in series, I will get through my phobia......eventually. ( I am getting there Carolyn!!)

I am now in love with The Infernal Devices series and have this addiction to Cassandra's writing that I must get a fix of each year or else........well it's not that crucial to life, but I do adore her writing. Cassandra is a quotes festival for my reviews. I even flew to Melbourne to her book signing, oh yeah! hubby left home with 3 kids and I would do it again! Such a warm nice person.

See Book Signings in left side bar for my adventure and vids of the night.

Anyhoo, YAY!! it's 2012 and City Of Lost Souls is released May 8th. I will be doing my happy dance when it arrives, The Pointer Sisters may have to help me out again. ( Clockwork Prince for reference to that comment)

Anyhoo, Cassandra and the peeps of book cover designing have done a smashing job again.

What do you think?

  2. I haven't even started this series, but it's one of those that you know you have to have in hardcopy. Not a kindle book. I've been wondering what this cover would look like and it's stunning.
    Thanks for sharing it!

  4. The sad part is I haven't even read "City of Fallen Angels" yet!! I've been dying to though! I've been waiting for it to come out in paperback, which I know probably sounds really lame, but I have the first three in paperback, and I wanted it to match ^^ haha.

  5. @ The Romance Bookie,

    I understand getting books to match. With Cassandra I can't help myself I buy whatever I can get my hands on first and then get what I want to match later. You are in for a treat with COFA, it is probably better COLS read right after COFA cause.....well then that would be telling...hehe!!
