Sorry to bug you guys again, but I wanted opinions on another series. :-) I was at Wal-Mart this morning and the covers of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series caught my eye. Just wondering if anyone out there has read it, liked it, hated it... I know they're YA, but looked like something I might enjoy. Thanks in advance for your input!

I won't give away the plot but I really like the series. I have read bks 1 and 2 and just got book 3. It will be read really quickly. Go buy it. It's worth it !!!!

Reading the first one right now and I agree, it's really good.

If you have a Costco close by they have both book 1 and 2 for $5.99 each, already bought the second one :-)

They are great - I've read 1 and 2, but haven't gotten to 3 yet.

I plan on it, but right now, I've already got 200 books (the PBS limit) on my WL, so I'm gonna have to wait until there's some spots freed up. :-) If anything, I'll just suck it up and pay the WW price.
