This is the first book in the mortal instruments series. Clary and Simon get into a club in town. Their plan is to dance and have fun. But Clary's life is about to change like she hasn't known before. The club that they were in had some strange looking people that come to it. She'd been watching this boy with blue hair for a little while. He then noticed a girl all in white. She was quite stunning. Clary moved through the crowd. Simon told her he was going to go get something to drink. Clary's attention was some where else. She followed the boy and he was heading straight over to where the girl was heading.

Clary noticed that the girl wasn't alone there were two guys with her. She could see everything that was going on. What she didn't expect was what was going to happen next. The guy with the blond hair used some kind of sword and killed the boy with the blue hair with it. She screamed and the guy looked right at her. Simon had then, found her and asked her what was going on. She told Simon. After Simon got the guard and they didn't find anything, they left. Clary and Simon caught a cab back to her house.

The next morning her mom was a little upset with her. She wanted to speak with her. Luke was there because they brought in art supplies. Simon had called Clary to say he was heading over there and was wondering about going to see his friends poetry reading at the coffee house. She was just about to walk out the door when her mom asked if she'd not go. Just then, the door opened and Simon walked in, scaring her mom to death.

She left with Simon, not thinking that this would be the last time she would see her mom in awhile. At the coffee house she saw that guy she saw at the club, the one that killed that boy. She was so bothered by what she had seen that she left the coffee house to speak to him.

He was a little rude and ached like he didn't seem to care about what she was wanting to know. He just kept saying that there were things she just didn't want to know about. Clary told him that she could see everything that happened.

Clary found out what demons were because one tried to kill her. She found out that there were shadowhunters that killed demons to protect the humans that lived in this world. She found out so many things that it could have been more then she could have taken. But she dealt with things one thing at a time.

She meets Alec and Isabelle. Finds out the boys name is Jace. Meets Hodge's who runs the place they were staying at. Finds out about Valetine and that he wants the mortal cup. By the end of the book you learn that Valentine is Clary's dad and Jace's dad. Which means they are brother and sister.

But over all, I don't want to give to much away because you will have to get the book and read it.
And by the way, they did make it into a movie but, I'll say this, the book isn't anything like the movie. They also made a series for television. I've always figured that books are better then movie and this one meets that greatly.

Deadline by Sandra Brown

This book was very good. It was about lies that you tell yourself and sometimes even get away with. Its about murder and getting revenge. This author is one of my favorites to read.

Dawson Scott is a reporter for a magazine. He spent time over seas in the war zone. He came back home with some scares of his own. Gary Headly is an FBI agent and had been after Carl Wingert for the last 40 years. He told Dawson about all that and asked if he'd been willing to take a trip for a trial that was going on. What Dawson didn't expect was what was going to happen when He first see's Amelia Wesson. If you ever thought lusting after someone wasn't possible, it is And he did.

Dawson got a little close to Amelia then he wanted to at first. There was a few other things going on that made him wonder what was really going on. Carl is a very evil man. He treated his friends badly and turned his son into an evil person too.

Dawson had some secrets that he didn't want to share with anyone but, Amelia had this way about her that got him to open up to her. What he hid from himself she found a way to get it out of him. He would keep trying to push her away and she wouldn't let him. I think she was falling in love with him.

By the end of the book you find out all the truth about everything. Its very much worth reading.
