So it can have a 2.35. The first most of it was bad and needed plot development, but the end was cool. It was like bad chocolate, that really cheap kind. It's chocolate, which is good, and there's good in it, but it could be so much better, and it doesn't actually taste that good.

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Clare should have stopped after she finished her trilogy. This book seemed like an excuse to write about everyone's love life. The main plot was more of a side story. The majority of the pages were taken up with Clary worrying about whether Jace loved her, Alec being with Magnus, and Simon's double relationship with Maia and Isabelle. Really, it's all very shallow. Why does Alec get so mad when he finds out that Magnus dated someone a couple centuries ago? Why does Jace start to pull away from Clary because of some nightmares instead of telling her about them? No, all he says is that he doesn't want to hurt her. Of course, it all adds to the romantic drama. At least the bit at the end was cool, but I'm not sure it was worth reading the rest of the book just to meet the awesome character at the end. There should be more text dedicated to the actual plot, not the boring, unnecessary side stuff. A little is ok, I guess, because it's clear that Clare wants to write about that, but to have most of the book devoted to it is a bit much.
