I remember really enjoying her books! I started with the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices, and though they were initially quite difficult to get into fully, she has a way of making me get attached to the characters and the world she had built.

I like the way she writes dialogue between the characters, her style is funny and enjoyable, but her descriptions of the characters' thoughts and feelings are a little too dramatic and exaggerated sometimes, which annoys me a bit. Her plots and characters are really good though so I don't mind it as much in the grand scheme of things.
