Clary’s Super-Sweet Coffee

“She tore a bun apart, savoring the rich savory-salt taste of the pork, the chewiness of the white dough. She washed it down with a swig of black super sweet coffee.” – City of Bones

“She took a sip – no milk and lots of the sugar, the way she liked it.” – City of Ashes

As I have several historical fiction books just waiting to take me on a new adventure I fear this is only the first review of many. I’m sorry not sorry  in advance!

I had looked into getting a few audiobooks to listen to while I run on the treadmill at the gym anyway, so this was a perfect oppurtunity. I’m not sure about you but I get ridiculously bored on the treadmill, I start staggering a bit then my mind wanders. I have concluded that audiobooks are the BEST IDEA EVER – for me at least.
