Okay so I'm pretty sure anything I say will be a spoiler since everyone knows how hardcore I ship Jem & Tessa so my reading thoughts will be in the spoiler tag.

Also warning that the comments of this post now have spoilers.

This book was undeniably flawed, but you will definitely get what you came for:

- circular ending. It ends the same way it began.

My poor heart has never felt this way after finishing a series; I had no idea it was possible to feel such tempered happiness as well as such overwhelming grief for everyone involved. Many of the things I thought might happen, did--and yet it doesn't change my fierce love and admiration for the way everything unfolded.

THIS is how a love triangle should be written, in a way that preserves the honor of everyone involved. There isn't another series out there that has ever managed to handle one wit

I can't believe it's over. This series has been one of my favorites for the past couple years and it's always been in the back of my mind. So now that it's over I'm not sure what to do with myself. Guess I'll just have to read some more books.

I officially died and went to heaven when I finally got this book in my hands.

And it was freaking amazing. Everything about this book was perfect, and it ended absolutely perfectly.

And it was SO. SAD.

OH DEAR JESUS. I couldn't handle the level of sadness.

Even so, still perfection.

So I have read the book.

Now, I'd feel really bad if I had to deleted the whole what-the-fuck-is-gonna-happen conjectures I'd written in this 'review' before reading it, so I'll just put everything into spoiler. (So if you haven't read the book yet, you can open the spoiler as it's not actually a spoiler but only a list of my thoughts BEFORE reading the book.)

here’s a song called I’m ready to die *strums guitar*

In my reviews of Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince, I talked a lot about of the things I loved so much within this series. But you know what? I cannot wait to do it all again. This series took an annoyingly large emotional tole on me and my fragile emotions, and it was kind of trashy, but also it made me cry, like, a lot, and I qualify that as a quality piece of media.

I’m registering my honest opinion that fun trash is fantastic if you can

MY HEART HURTS. I'VE NEVER FELT THIS BROKEN OVER A BOOK BEFORE.

Words truly cannot express the greatness of this art and perfection. The Infernal Devices certainly became one of my favorite series of ALL TIME. I can't believe it's actually over. And that epilogue. Cassandra Clare can seriously write one heck of an epilogue no matter how painful they could be!

The Infernal Devices has been one wild ride right from the very first page of Clockwork Angel. I binge read all three books and I have

Well, I can honestly say that I did not see that epilogue coming. Insert jaw drop here. Also, I feel like I need to immediately reread this to catch all the details I missed in my hurried frenzy the first go around? And could I possibly cry any more tears over this book? This is my most favorite Cassie Clare novel to date, and I finally see why you all hold it so close to your heart.

A NOTE TO THE AUTHOR: PATIENT VERSION

(NOTE: read this letter in a dramatic British accent. It'll be more funnier than I intended it to be.)

Dear Cassandra Clare,

I am begging you to please release this earlier. If the world will end this year, then I will not have the chance to read this amazing book, and I will die very, very sad. Not only I will die this way, but also many other fans will die very, very sad. Now, you don't want your fans to be very, very sad, do you?

The setting was easily my favorite part of this book! I just really like Wales… the whole time period, steampunk feel, and London & Wales setting of this book might be the cause of at least half of these stars. All of the Welsh legends and language were really fun to see.

I haven't been the biggest fan of Cassandra Clare’s other works (I mean, they’re fine... they're just not favorites), but this story was all sorts of emotional.

The love triangle worked so much better for me here. And I love

So the first thing you need to know is I AM A GARGANTUANLY ENTHUSIASTIC CASSANDRA CLARE FAN. I am! I didn't love Clockwork Princess as much as I wanted to but, zomg, I still love the Shadowhunter world an astronomical amount. But all in all? The conclusion to this trilogy was a liiiiittle anti-climatic for me. BUT I HAVE BROKEN IT INTO LIST FORMAT FOR YOU. Because I'm kind like that.
