Appreciation Post: City of Bones Tenth Anniversary Edition!

Hey guys! I’m just so damn excited for this beautiful book that I had to share it on my blog! You’ve all probably seen it by now or have your own copies but I was only able to pick mine up yesterday and I was freaking out! This book is stunning! Absolutely stunning! A similar post I did for Lord of Shadows was surprisingly popular so I thought why not do one for this too? If you want the contents of this book to be a surprise then do not view this post!

This is my 200th post which is flipping fantastic and quite fitting that I dedicate it to an author that I wholeheartedly adore!

Before we get into this post I would just like to apologise in advance for the awful pictures. I didn’t get home until 7pm so obviously I had zero daylight and had to take the pictures in the dark. But I added some pretty fairy lights to hopefully make up for my sucky pictures?

See? My pictures are kind of sucky but hopefully you can still appreciate how utterly gorgeous this book is! That cover is beautiful and it was honestly love at first sight when I picked this book up. Plus, it’s signed! I already have a signed copy of Lady Midnight but Cassie is one of my favourite authors – I adore her books. So if I have the opportunity to get another signed book, I’m going to get it! The website had a signed copy and a normal hardback copy and both were £15 so obviously I’m going to get the signed one! Also, SPINE BEAUTY!

So on the inside cover is this beautiful illustration of Clary! Not even joking, when I saw this it actually took my breath away. It’s so pretty! Then we have Cassie’s autograph which is so laughable but I still appreciate it. Seriously, it’s so easy to forge that signature but it’s understandable for her to have one like that because she has to sign a lot of books!

After seeing the beautiful illustration of Clary I nearly screamed when I saw these illustrations. Nothing could have prepared me for this! They are actually perfect! There are no other words to describe them! They’re so vibrant and colourful – I think they have captured the characters perfectly.

You probably can’t see the map very well, I’m sorry! But as you can tell this whole book will leave you breathless and in awe. I’m so excited to re-read this because there are added illustrations now which I think are really cute. They make the book that much more special.

These are just some of the added illustrations – just little touches of magic here and there. I love it!


At the back of the book is this gorgeous illustration of Jace and this just makes my heart so happy. Thank you for giving us this beautiful book with these beautiful illustrations. I didn’t know I needed this in my life until now.

What do you guys think of this tenth anniversary edition? Feel free to leave a comment below because I would love to know your thoughts! Personally I think they have done a fantastic job! I love this book so much it flipping hurts.
