From Clockwork Angel on, both series kind of intertwine and some things are foreshadowed in one series that is going to happen in the other. This way you're reading it as Cassandra Clare intended the story to unfold, and you won't be accidentally "spoiled" for one series. :)(less)
When people ask me ''Who is your favorite author?'' I never know exactly what answer to offer. I very much enjoy reading L.J. Smith’s books. But C.S. Pacat is my favorite M/M author! And let’s not forget how amazing J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series is. Oh, and have you heard of Kiera Cass? She wrote such a swoon-worthy love story! And Eliza Crewe, Leigh Bardugo, Laini Taylor and Marissa Meyer are all new favorite authors of mine.
Nonsense. No need to be torned ever again.

I never thought this could be that good.I had started "City of Bones" (the first book of The Mortal Instruments by the same author) but it didn't work for me so I thought this could be the same but I was...more
The Dirty Sexy Attic Scene, from Will's point of view: http://www.cassandraclare.com/cms/loss1
Yeah, yeah, it's a little over the top in parts, but who cares? :D Yum
I don't give many 5 star reviews, but this one is definitely a 5 star book for me. While I liked Mortal Instruments, I wasn't as rabid a fan as I know many people are, so I read Clockwork Angel out of curiosity more than anything else...and I'm so glad I did!

In order to save you some precious time, I will tell you my honest reaction to Clockwork Angel right here, right now:
Thank you, Shou.
Also, when I first opened the book, I was faced by this description as well:

Clockwork Angel was AMAZING. If you love The Mortal Instruments, then you will surely love this book, maybe even more than the original series itself. And if you didn't, well I honestly believe The Infernal Devices will succeed in what The Mortal Instruments failed to do.
The characters were one hundred times more better than that of The Mortal Instruments! Everybody was so much more likable and mature. I really thought for a second that Tessa Gray was older ...more
However, I think I would have liked it much better if I hadn’t read the Mortal Instruments series before. But the books are so similar (which was to be expected, I know, as they are set in th ...more

This just made me more excited for Clockwork Prince to come out. Goodness I am not patient these days!

Listen, I'm not going to lie and say I didn't kind of enjoy it. This was my third attempt at reading this, and I guess thir ...more
It's not a long life, killing demons; one tends to die young, and then they burn your body—dust to dust, in the literal sense. And then we vanish into the shadows of history, nary a mark on the page of a mundane book to remind the world that once we existed at all.
It's really hard for me to review a book everyone loved and have high expectations but then end up not even liking it because maybe your expectations were too high, not met, or you were just bored. In my case, it was all. Expectati ...more
I apparently have gained a following because of these reviews, and they have convinced me to use my analytical powers on The Infernal Devices series. You could say I'm easily swayed because I lack dignity. But this is really just too much fun. It's so much fun, I need to be stroking a cat.
First, the usual disclaimer. This review contains spoilers, griping, whining, over thinking, and general ranting. Trolls need not apply.
Let's get started.

Listen guys, I tried. I seriously tried!!!! But this was so slow and boring for me, I just couldn't get into it no matter how hard I tried to make myself like it. I was originally going to give this one star, but at times it was a little fast paced and action packed.
Since I already read TMI before this series, the whole info. about Shadowhunters and stuff bored me and I really couldn't find mysel ...more

"It was books that made me feel that perhaps I wasn't completely alone."--Will Herondale
So, this is it. My very first book by the incredibly popular writer, Cassandra Clare, and she didn't disappoint me at all. I've always wanted to give her books a try and see what the hypes are about but was taken aback by such a HUGE chronicle. I mean, there are other series more or less related to The Infernal Devices or The Mortal Instruments and I have the habit of readathoning all of them. Fortunately ...more
I definitely didn't love this as much as I did when I read it the first time but I still really enjoyed it!
JEM IS A PRECIOUS CINNAMON ROLL. WILL IS A TORTURED SOUL. TESSA I JUST THE BEST.
I love this world and I love the steampunk elements so much. My only qualm with the audiobook is Gabriel Lightwood's voice because it ...more

“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
It was interesting to read this back now in 2017 as someone much older. When I first read this in 2012, I was not even in highschoo ...more
This world that Clare has created is just beautiful in its plot, scenery, characters and description!
I love both Will and Jem so much but admittedly I am on team Will he definitely has that Mr Darcy / Heathcliff thing going on.
I also enjoyed Clockwork Angel being set in the Victorian era even though I'm not a historical / period book fan tbh but I love the incorporation of the shado ...more
“If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all?”
I read this book for the second time. First time ? Not my impressive experience. Clockwork Angel is fun to read but not spectacular. I don't know why something always pulled me back when I really wanted to enjoy this one. Although the characters are outstanding, it's not captivated enough to neutralize the disastrous pace of this book. Will, James and Tessa are a perfect triad I'm very fond of, they give and recieve ...more

So, as we all know this was a re-read for me. I've never wrote a review for this, so this is all fresh and new. I'm so excited to write this and have been wanting to do so for a long long time! I can finally do so now. I was so scared to re-read this, I thought may ...more
I can't believe it took me so long to read this book! I loved the world it is set in and all of the characters accept the evil ones. Although, the evil ones were done very nicely indeed!
I'm sure about a million thousand people know the story by now, but I guess I will tell it some more ☺
