Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan

I like the concept of Immortal Beloved and look forward to book two in the trilogy. The summary and title of the book led me to think this was a paranormal romance with a touch of reincarnation, which is not the case. I was slightly disappointed with that misconception but Immortal Beloved still reads well and ends leaving the reader wanting more.

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels was, in my opinion, not as compelling as the previous books in the Mortal Instruments Series. I am also disappointed in the progression of Jace and Clary's relationship. I did enjoy the revelation of the nemisis towards the end of Fallen Angels. A couple of questions I thought would be answered and were not- Why did the seelie queen give Clary the bell? What did the witch mean when she said Jace would fall in love with the wrong girl? Ugh...I will just have to wait until the next installment in 2012! Overall a very good read...I just wanted more.
