Favorite Books of All Time

A Listmania! list by Jessica "Jaa1120" (Baltimore, Maryland)
The list author says: "I read tons of books. I love all different genres, including fantasy, romance, and non-fiction. As a 20 yr old I am constantly finding myself stuck between teen books and books geared more toward older readers. The books in this list are some of my favorites, most of which I've read two or three times. I was able to enjoy all of them without ever feeling like I was forcing myself to relate to an age bracket where I didn't belong."
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, Book 1)
1.  City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, Book 1) by Cassandra Clare
The list author says:
  "This is the first book in the Mortal Instruments Series. The main character is a girl who finds herself caught up in a world of otherworlders and Shadowhunters, those who hunt otherworlders. There are so many plot lines and twists in the book, along with a romance that is unlike any I've read."
