Wasn’t meant to be—City of Fallen Angels

So today I was meant to be reading, or more so reviewing this book, but I just couldn’t.
I picked it up (there’s even a soft fold in the cover half of the spin because I opened it) but I couldn’t read it. Couldn’t get myself in any mood to read it.
I know I’m not obliged to read it. But I still feel shitting, but....
I read the first half as a trilogy and its feeling I’ll probably wait and read the last half the same way. Which means a year after the last book comes out (I ain’t getting it in large format)

Clary is back in New York and life is good: she’s training to be a Shadowhunter and is finally able to call Jace her boyfriend. But nothing comes without a price. When Jace inexplicable begins to pull away from her, Clary is forced to acknowledge that she herself has set in motion a chain of events that could lead to the loss of everything she loves. Even Jace.
Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge.
The stakes are higher than ever....

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
(The Mortal Instruments, #4),
 First published 5th April 2011 by Margaret K. McElderry Books

YA fiction

City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Lost Souls, City of Heavenly Fire
 Because of my error in not reading it, I’m going to give you what I read and see if you could be bothered reading it either. Especially when every review you read of it told you that it wasn’t really worth it. 

 “Just coffee, please.”
     The waiting raised her pencilled eyebrows. “You don’t want anything to eat?” she asked. Her accent was thick, her attitude disappointed.
     Simon Lewis couldn’t blame her; she’s probably been hoping for a better tip than the one she was going to get on a single cup of coffee. But it wasn’t his fault vampires didn’t eat. Sometimes, in restaurants, he ordered, but late Tuesday night, when Veselka was almost empty of other customers, it didn’t seem worth the bother. “Just the coffee.”
