If you know me at all you've probably guessed that one of the main reasons I picked up City of Bones was because it said on the cover-fans of Buffy would fall for the series. That and my sister-in-law told me I had to read them, using the Buffy thing as a way to pique my interest. I admit I was hesitant to read it because I thought it would be a rip off. I'm mean it's demon slaying right? So not a rip-off! She made it her very own.
And her own is very awesome!
