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.

5 FULLY STARS!
You can find the full review and more about this book on my blog!
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 totally wr...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!
This book is ...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!

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:
Magic is dangerous-but love is more dangerous still.

The beginning (1-100 pg)
The beginning till the middle was horrible. I had to force myself to keep on reading. It was so tedious i had to fight the urge to fall asleep. Most of the stuff was not even relevant and important! There was so much small, annoy ...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.

Trilogy: The Infernal Devices (book #1)
Author: Cassandra Clare
London, 1878, if you think there can't be a book at the same level as the ones in The Mortal Instruments series, you are making a huge mistake my friend!
What to expect:
A story that will delight your expectations, you enjoy it every moment and at the same time you start an adventure full of excitement and incredibly developed characters.
... mmm I think I need a hug and some ice cream even though I haven' ...more
Cassandra Clare is brilliant! Not only did Cassie captivate me with her Victorian Era setting (in London) and transport me i ...more
Reread rating: 4 stars again
"This is what is real, and the life I had before was a dream."
"That is correct. And now is the time to wake up"
Cassandra Clare is and always will be a fantastic writer when it comes to worldbuilding and sucking the reader into a book.
Tessa, an American teenage girl in 1878 has recently suffered the loss of her Aunt when her brother sends her a ticket to travel from New York to London. Upon arrival, Tessa is abducted by a sinister duo who c ...more
If you've been following my reviews you know that I love underdogs. I'm not entirely sure why I love underdogs. I just do. Perhaps it's my belief that underdogs typically have the potential to be top dog if they just try a little harder, put a little more effort into whatever they're trying to accomplish.
So I stand on the sidelines cheering like a maniac for the underdog, despite the odds, despite their performance in the past. Thinking ...more
For everyone out there, bookbloggers and mundanes alike, there is no way to avoid the inevitable. You will fall in love with William Herondale, given codename: #101
Include: Crying without stopping. Having dreams which occur after reading about #101. Shortness of breath. The incapability of being about the form sentences. Thinking about #101 non-stop. Day-dreaming about #101. Chest pains. A sudden fear of Ducks. Quoting lines from books at random. Smiling, whilst thinking abou ...more
Can I say how sexy Will Herondale is? Yes, I know he's a literary character and not even real, yet there's this likability about him that makes him feel real. He's not a cookie cutter hero where all the girls ...more
Of course, there are connections ...more
I say "girls" because this is the target audience of Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel. Love, emotions, strong female characters, this has them in spades. On the negative side, it also panders a bit with overt book love, puppy love and petty angst.
Regardless of the testosterone that was gushing through my boy parts, I might've enjoyed the heck out of this when I was 12 or 13ish, ...more
“There's plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes, if you wish to look for it.”
Set in the Victorian era, this is a magnificent steampunk book with, okay, let's admit it, Mrs. Clare's writing is what makes this so perfect. The world, Shadow World, she's created is an amazing fit and one I couldn't ever imagine being combined with the Victorian era. I loved it so much, it such an original book and Mrs. Clare won't ever stop surprising me. Firt, The Mortal Instruments which are one of my most favori ...more
Love it. Couldn't stop reading it. Love the world building especially the Victorian era setting. Awesome characters and am feeling invested with these characters already!! Just awesome. AWESOME!
No time for a full review, sorry! Need to move on to the next one now! :D ...more
5 months later and i've finally finished this book!! hahahah!!! What an accomplishment, I've been reading it for so long and just kept putting it down, not because i wasn't enjoying it, jut because i have to be in the mood for Cassandra Clare books and i just wasn't at the time i picked it up... anyway...
This book was such a roller coaster! I love Jem, also really like Will, Jessamine, Sophie and Tessa. The characters are so great, much like the setting of London in this book. ...more
