    I enjoyed this reread SO SO SO MUCH I can't believe I was ever petty enough to vehemently dislike this novel Like almost every reread of The Infernal Devices I struggled to fall into the story in the beginning Alas I read the second half of the book in one sitting because I REFUSED to put it down I'm so pleased that I can enjoy these books as an adult much much than I did as a teen

    5 starsYou can find the full review and about this book on my blogClockwork Angel Review“We live and breathe words It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone They could be honest with me and I with them Reading your words what you wrote how you were lonely sometimes and afraid but always brave; the way you saw the world its colors and textures and sounds I felt I felt the way you thought hoped felt dreamt I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you I dreamed what you dreamed wanted what you wanted and then I realized that truly I just wanted you” If you know me and my reviews you would know that I am not a fan of seuelsespecially second books of the series but this one was entirely awesomeI have been caught up with series for weeks now and I can't think of anything elseThe way it is written is so beautiful and I do dig the appearance and the style of talking of the time this bookactually the whole series is set inMaybe as a fan of booksas a reader I do enjoy books in which dialogues are filled with uotes of classicsuoting the brilliant authors is one of the smartest way of creating conversations and I must give the credit for this to the authorShe handled this perfectlystaying in reality and not turning it into something artificial as some popular books out there had done it“It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone They could be honest with me and I with them” The way author describes the situation is terrificthe way the characters show their emotionstheir affectionseagernesssympathy fits greatly with their culture at the certain timeAlso you can sense skepticism on their thoughtsactions affected by feelingsinexperienceand ageYou get to read here about great heroic charactersfearless and strongbut it's something about them and the things they repeatedly do that makes them real and believableIt makes them people“They say time heals all wounds but that presumes the source of the grief is finite” I must say I enjoyed this one than the first oneNot that it was better than the first one in the plot or the writingor anything in general but if you may know meyou would know my public dislikeness for vampires as creaturesand this one fortunately doesn't contain blood drinkersSo I am pleased“If no one cares for you at all do you even really exist?” Even that there is not a lot of action or much happening in this bookit never got boringThe plot was beautifully organised and the situations were always thrilling filled with excitementThere are some secrets revealedbut still the plot is uite complicated stored with enigmatic words and ideas and persons in shades“We live and breathe words” This may contain spoilersI was uite impressed with the Will's curseand the revelation of itAnd it surely change my opinion for this character“You’re seventeen” Magnus said “You can’t have wasted a life you’ve barely lived” I can't part this bookAs the first bookthis one was also a perfection in every wayI can't say I didn't enjoy some parts than others but the difference is minor so I will not mention them because I don't want to spoil The story This book follows the story of the first oneAfter the death of the vampire and the unknown location of the Magister the shadowhunters are caught up in a lot of problemsCharlotte is doing everything to save the Instituteto stay at the head of itTessa is still clearing things in her headtrying to find about herself and who she isher originher parentsHer heart starts growing feeling for Jembecause of this kindness and everything but in the other hand she can't stop feeling affection for Will and his darkdark past“Lies and secrets Tessa they are like a cancer in the soul They eat away what is good and leave only destruction behind” The characters TessaWell I still have the same opinion for herAll the bestAnd I don't know why but I never have imagined someone beautiful than her in my mindAnd she has a sense of humorLike that's something easy to findbeautiful and funnyWillWell as I said my opinion for Will has changedNot that I have disliked this characters before but after knowing him betterI do feel pity for himI still don't know why he hasn't tried to find the demon beforeI mean for five years he could have find it and know better and he would not be lateand who has read this book knows what I meanJamesI also have the same opinion about this characters as beforeBut I do have a feeling that he knows what Tessa truly feelsI guess I have to find out in the third oneMagnus BaneI am mention this character because I can't really understand himHe has done a lot of generous things for othersbut I can't really know what he likes or desiresIt confused me a lot and maybe it's just me but I think he has some problems and I find him very creepy“Oh leave it” said Jem kicking Will not without affection lightly on the ankle “She’s annexed my plan” “Will” Tessa said firmly “Do you care about the plan being enacted or about getting credit for it?” Will pointed a finger at her “That” he said “The second one” I highly recommend this book to every book reader out thereIt's a phenomenal seriesIt contains everything you want to see in a bookSo pick the first one up and then this one Pictures from the review are not mine I took them mostly from Google images or Tumblr

    And I thought things couldn’t get complicatedThey can And they haveIt should scare me to think that Cassandra Clare is not done messing with our emotions that there will be heart breaking scenes in Clockwork Princess but part of me must be a masochistBecause I am looking than forward to having my heart broken for the millionth timeThese characters have become so dear to me I almost feel as if I have known them for ever Tessa and Will and Jem are the most intense trio there is in young adult literature from my perspectiveI know that they each have their own past and future yet I cannot help but want for them to be linked and bound to one another until death plays its roleClockwork Prince is different from Clockwork Angel in many ways For starters it contains romance There is even cheating Further secrets are revealed Many of them The pacing is slower and the focus is sharp on the characters and less so on the actual plotAnd it’s also treacherousAs in brace yourself dear readers for Clockwork Prince will leave a mark on you Of love of despair of madness or hope?

    Have you ever pictured yourself wandering among the tombs at Westminster Abbey marveling at the sheer wonder of being among the greatest literary figures in history? Sixteen year old Tessa Gray is taken to Poets' Corner by someone who understands exactly what such an experience will mean to her and this lovely little moment in the seuel to Clockwork Angel perfectly encapsulates everything I love about the Infernal Devices series Tessa is a shapeshifting Shadowhunter who is becoming accustomed to her powers but in the middle of all the magic and mystery in Victorian England the relationships between Tessa the enigmatic Will and the thoughtful sensitive Jem remain the very heart of the storyFollowing a rather ahem provocative prologue the story really begins as the London Institute of Shadowhunters is given two weeks to find the evil Magister who is still determined to gain control of Tessa’s powers and bring down the Enclave Tessa and the Shadowhunters must battle dreadful clockwork creatures demons and even treachery within their own ranks before everything around them is forever altered Readers who agonized over the last book will be happy to know that we see the beginnings of the ties between the Lightwood and Herondale families find out what the initials JTS mean and spend time getting to know all the characters including Magnus Jessamine Henry Charlotte and Sophie Here are the other important elements that I loved from this storyTessa Will and JemTessa becomes sure of her uniue position and powers and her relationships with both the boys in her life deepen in a life changing way Jem unexpectedly reveals an incredibly alluring side to him that we’ve never seen before and we finally discover the devastating secret in handsome Will’s tragic past This is one of the most well written love triangles I’ve ever read with a strong girl torn between two very attractive and honorable boys; there are good reasons for Tessa to love them both but also excellent reasons for her to give her heart to neither It is nothing short of torture to feel Tessa’s deep pull towards Jem and Will both of whom have swooningly romantic and wildly sensual moments with our heroine Believe me the infamous Dirty Sexy Balcony Scene than lives up to its promise and I clutched my pearls than once while reading this bookWhat Tessa never forgets however is that as confused as she is about her feelings for Jem and Will there is also a lifelong friendship between them that she must honor Jem’s illness Will’s love for and dependence upon him and her own need for self respect all contribute to an intensely difficult situation and one that made me hurt for everyone involved Victorian DetailsThe Victorian details in this novel make me uite ill with pleasure That's right ill with pleasure I'm not even speaking solely of catnip such as the clothes and carriages and the like but of a finer deeper authenticity that has to do with a way of truly immersive thinking rather than just trifling details It seems to be so difficult for many YA historical fiction authors to refrain from projecting anachronistic modern attitudes onto period characters but Tessa Gray stands out as a true Victorian heroine She shows courage and spirit but it's within the appropriate behaviors and thinking patterns for a girl living in the 19th century; if she breaks tradition she thinks about it and we know it's unusual before she does soEven while she's being trained for self defense by other Shadowhunters Tessa spends a great deal of her time struggling to reconcile her magical powers and responsibilities with her upbringing and social decorum The role of women in oppressive circumstances has always interested me and Tessa’s internal dialogue and conduct along with Sophie’s are notably in keeping with all the other spot on period details which are meticulously researched and beautifully woven into the story Before she began writing this series the author rather famously moved to England for six months and read nothing but books written or set in the Victorian era and even walked all the streets that her characters might have traveled There is a certain mood and style that is decidedly steeped in the foundations of this research and the dexterous language and witty dialogue feel pretty nearly perfect and true to the time—with allowances for fantasy and magic of course Tessa transcends the thinking of the time and uses clever magic and thinking to outwit her adversaries at every turnA Love of LiteratureAnother thing I also adore about this series is how much appreciation all the characters have for literature I still remember the awe I felt the first time I went to Westminster Abbey and it struck a chord to hear Tessa say “I can’t explain it It’s like being among friends being among these names” Upon traveling to the countryside for the first time she also says I feel as though I have seen it before In books I keep imagining I’ll see Thornfield Hall rising up beyond the trees or Wuthering Heights perched on a stony crag“ It is nearly impossible for any lover of books particularly those with an unruly bit of romance in her soul to fail to thrill when reading words like this Tessa is a kindred spirit for me and I think she would be for many other thinking dreaming readers as wellIf you were dying for this second installment in the Infernal Devices series rest assured that it has been than worth the wait It's full of great action scenes a clever use of magic and the hilarious dialogue that we've come to expect from these characters It is however also an intensely emotional read for those invested in the characters so be prepared with tissues—I cried several times near the heartbreaking end and it's going to be so hard to wait another whole year for Clockwork Princess Was the book satisfying? Yes Was it agonizing? A thousand times yes But it was painful in the most exuisite and emotionally truthful of ways This review also appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisher

  8. Beth Beth says:

    I think by now we all know how much I love and enjoy anything Shadowhunter related but I can honestly say I don't think I will never not give The Infernal Devices series anything less than 5 starsIt is just so beautiful These books make me feel things only one or two other books have made me feel My heart actually hurts for Will and Tessa It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone They could be honest with me and I with them Reading your words what you wrote how you were lonely sometimes and afraid but always braveWhat made it so special for me the second time round was how much I had truely forgotten It was like reading it for the first time When you read something for the first time your in awe and that's honestly how I felt I loved how it brought in characters and you could see alliances emerging It had so much humour in the book that honestly just brightened up my daySeriously though I don't know how many times my heart was just so close to breaking Will Will and Tessa Will and Jem Tessa Jem Tessa and Jem Charlotte and Henry Even Jessie TOO MANY EMOTIONS WERE FELTFor me Tessa seemed to be a totally different character in this book in the sense that she wasn't shocked by things any I enjoyed her a lot and could sense that she was settled I liked how she was uite independent and was able to control things easier My heart broke for her upon the confession SO CLOSE Will I can't I just I don't even know how to write any of this I have never felt so strongly for a character in the many books I have read There is something about him I know that he appears to be damaged but there is so much to him as a character In this book you find out why he is like he is and honestly it hurt However I thoroughly enjoyed Will's back story and once all was revealed I liked how open he became Onto the final person in the trio Jem He is like I previously mentioned so sweet and so lovely I feel uite sad that in my previous reads I was all for Will I still am but now I see the appeal of Jem anyway his character developed so much in this book I think he was strong stood up for what he believed in and was once again the loving caring Jem Carstairs we all know His love for Tessa is so beautiful and so raw it honestly melted me Sophie and Gideon just made me so happy in this book I enjoyed the training sessions between the two how Gideon became his own person entirely in this book and actually stands up for what is right Sophie also does the same even if it meant her telling everything she is honourable and does what is right Her friendship with Tessa is adorable and how she kind of puts everyone in there place YesssssI was so confused and had conflicting views about Jessie in this book One moment I loathed her the next I felt sympathy towards her She's not particularly a pleasant character but that's kind of why she's there I enjoy the fact she doesn't seem to have a filter however I just don't like how much she hurts the ones that love her I'm looking forward to finding out what becomes of her in the next book I remember something but not other bitsFinally the top dogs the heads of the institute Charlotte and Henry First of all how ADORABLE are they together? I just can't I think in this book you begin to understand how much they care and love one another The discussion of marriage had me laughing but at the same time it made me kind of sad However it was happy overall I was so pleased that something of Henrys finally worked They are both just lovely characters and the added bonus is Henrys ginger hair When two souls are as one they stay together on the Wheel I was born in this world to love you and I will love you in the next life and the one after thatWhat I liked? I liked how in the final chapters plans FINALLY came together it hurt to see that whatever Charlotte tried to do always seemed to fail I just want her to be happy The realisation that Charlotte and Henry both love each other eually and that everything they had thought wasn't uite true Demon Pox I have an image of Will dancing in my head it was hilarious The blossoming relationship of many characters I may have a soft spot for Gideon OH MY GOD Magnus trying to wind up Camille with Will was so funny I burst out laughing at work and everyone kind of looked at me as if I were slightly mad Magnus was in this book waaaaaaay I'm a fan of Magnus so anything related to him always make me happy Will's pure happiness and that he seemed to be giddy Sophie once again just makes me laugh so much My curiosity as I said I'd forgotten a lot of this book I'd completely forgot everything related to Jessie soooooo that was goodWhat I didn't like? Why do you continue to break my heart? I would of liked to of seen Mortmain maybe a little ? Final thought I'm kind of dreading reading the last book because then I know it's over and I know what's coming MY HEART CAN'T TAKE IT 290718 When two people are at one in their inmost hearts they shatter even the strength of iron or bronzeBecause I always have extra thoughts I want to add Jem taking Tessa to poets corner because he knew she'd enjoy it Will thinking he will be re born as a slug so someone can salt him ' BRIDGET Taking Gideon down her morbid songs ahhhh The complete innocence between Tessa and Jem The interactions between the three in general LEEDS MY HOMETOWN IS MENTIONED All of the things Magnus does; caring for Will knowing who people really are winding Camille up The slap it was great also tying people up hitting mirrors over heads courting So much foreshadowing Finally one of my favourite things about this series is how much they all care and love one another The protectiveness they all have towards one another honestly melts my heart it's so raw and so special I just honestly adore it23072020Honestly so many things happen in this Gideon finally arrives in the book definitely the unsung hero of this book Demon Pox All of the Angsts Dropping truthbombs about parents Magnus and Wills friendship really starts to peak Talk if Worms The party and balcony forever 1010 and I adore it Break my heart FOREVERAll ReviewsClockwork Angel 5 StarsClockwork Prince 5 StarsClockwork Princess 5 StarsThe Infernal Devices Manga ReviewsClockwork Angel 5 StarsClockwork Prince 5 StarsClockwork Princess 5 StarsThe Last HoursChain of Gold 5 StarsThe Mortal InstrumentsCity of Bones 5 StarsCity of Ashes 4 StarsCity of Glass 4 StarsCity of Fallen Angels RTCCity of Lost Souls RTCCity of Heavenly Fire RTCThe Dark ArtificesLady Midnight 5 StarsLord of Shadows 5 Starsueen of Air and Darkness 5 Stars

    1 City of Bones ★★★2 City of Ashes ★★3 City of Glass ★★★1 Clockwork Angel ★★★4 City of Fallen Angels ★ “You are a Shadowhunter You serve a greater cause Your life is not yours to throw away” Friends this is the highest four star rating Like I almost want to give this book five stars because I enjoyed the last 25% so damn much This is easily my favorite Cassie Clare book yet and I truly had such a wonderful time reading This is the second installment in this history preuel series that stars a young girl named Tessa who has traveled to London from America who was trying to find her brother in Clockwork Angel Well she found him and this book is dealing with the ramifications of what she found out Yet this book is also about Tessa trying to carve out a place for herself in a world that is unfamiliar to her in so many ways while also trying to learn about her true past and who she wants to be in the future Okay my review is going to touch on a couple key things that happened in this book and things that have happened in previous books so please use caution reading the rest of this review if you have not read this book and its predecessors And as always I’m going to do a little mini character breakdown on my thoughts and feelings on all the main characters in this book ➽ Tessa Gray Poor Tessa got so many big puzzle pieces about her life handed to her in this book And she is truly believing that her father was a demon which could completely be true and really intrigues me I mean I would personally be upset that he wasn’t from fae lineage but what can you do? “I was born into this world to love you and I will love you in the next life and the one after that” ➽ Jem Carstairs Jem is my favorite character in this series He's biracial Chinese and British living with a terminal illness and just the sweetest character in all of literature And I know without uestion he would be the one that I pick even if he’s not the one that I’d pick for Tessa Also I’ve dated enough rude and brooding boys to last me and Tessa a lifetime “I have wanted to do this” he said “every moment of every hour of every day that I have been with you since the day I met you But you know that You must know Don’t you?” ➽ Will Herondale Even though Jem is on the cover of this book I feel like this was Will’s book We learned so much about him and we finally get to see what happened to him five years ago Honestly I love Will and even though I won’t completely excuse the gross things he said at the end of Clockwork Angel I understand him and appreciate him If only I could feel the same about Jace Lord help me ➽ Charlotte Branwell So happy for her I honestly love how determined she is for herself but also how proud and supportive she is of her found family I love this house mom forever ➽ Henry Branwell So happy for him He’s alright but I like him because Charlotte loves him ➽ Sophie Collins Again Sophie is an MVP for me in this book too I really loved her in Clockwork Angel and that love only grew in this one I really hope she keeps remembering her worth regardless of what happens with boys in higher stations And I really hope she gets to become a Shadowhunter or something because she’s just lovely and brave and I feel so much joy every time I read a scene with her ➽ Benedict Lightwood Please don’t be a dick don’t be a dick don’t be a dick ➽ Magnus Bane Magnus my Asian and bi baby legit had me rereading paragraphs from laughing in this book Seriously such a fantastic character And such a caring character who just makes this world so much brighter I’m looking so very forward to his novellas ➽ Camille Belcourt So thankful that I read City of Fallen Angels only because it made me appreciate everything that happened between Magnus and Will that made Camille tell Alec the things she believes Like friends I was laughing out loud ➽ Jessamine Lovelace This bitch You all I knew she was trouble I just didn’t know how much But I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if she gets a redemption arc ➽ Nate Gray Like what a lame and pointless character Seriously But like now I want to know everything about Tessa’s necklace ➽ Axel Mortmain Where the fuck is this man? For real? Like I said above this is my favorite Cassie Clare to date I just feel like this book took on a much darker and mature theme while also blending in some amazing adventure and all that good angst I truly feel like the romance in this is one of my all time favorites and that’s really saying something I just never wanted to put this book down and I was always smiling or crying while reading it This was nothing short of a treat to read The romance in this book was actually incredible I kept complaining on bookstagram at 10% 20% 30% 40% that this isn’t a love triangle and that its so obvious that Tessa only feels platonically for Jem Then after that 40% mark my world completely shifted Friends this is one of my favorite love triangles of all time I will say that I can completely understand how people can see issue with Tessa maybe feeling obligated to start something with Jem because he is dying And obviously that’s a really terrible position to be in and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone but I truly believed by the end of this book that Tessa does have genuine feelings for Jem Even if I also believe with my entire heart that those feelings are stronger for Will “When she closed her eyes she saw Jem’s face and then Will’s his hand to his bloody mouth Thoughts of the two of them swirled together in her head until she fell asleep finally not sure if she was dreaming of kissing one of them or the other” You all are going to read this paragraph and you’re all going to be like “it’s not that deep Melanie” But I really do think that Clockwork Prince is a love letter to all the different types of love that we will have in our lives From just friendships and wanting to support and love them unconditionally and how magical it is when we find our own found family To romantic love which is that gut wrenching pure bliss that we don’t even have words to express but how we don’t feel truly whole without those peoplethat person And to all that messy love in between Even though I don’t feel the romantic love between Tess and Jem as much as I do between Tessa and Will that doesn’t make the love lesser and it definitely doesn’t make it any less real “Could you really love two different people at once? Could you split your heart in half?” And I believe with my whole heart that these three main characters should start a polyamorous relationship These three individuals love each other so much that it just feels right maybe even obvious that they should be a triad or a vee Because being in a polyamorous relationship doesn’t mean it has to be about sex I mean it could be but it also means being there emotionally for your two partners too And even though I do believe that they should all be in a relationship with each other they could also just both be in a relationship with Tessa and it would still be valid and pure and everything I’ve ever wanted Cassie Clare hear my prayers “I cannot explain love” he said “I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you or if it was the second or third or fourth But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you That you were the center of everything I did and felt and thought” Okay so something else I want to talk about is Tessa being a warlock Like Magnus is immortal and we are seeing him constantly throughout The Mortal Instruments but I’d just like to point out that I haven’t seen Tessa So friends I’m scared I’m real scared I also know everyone talks about how heartbreaking the final book is but I think it’s going to be even heartbreaking than I’m anticipating Overall I loved this book Easily my favorite Cassie Clare book yet Again I just want to say a big thank you to all for motivating me to pick this up and for not spoiling me for anything I can’t believe I’ve made it this long without being spoiled to anything but it’s truly making my reading experience so much greater And I can’t wait until I finally uncover every secret and can gush with you all forever over this world I can’t wait to read Clockwork Princess I just wish I didn’t have to read City of Lost Souls first Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Youtube | Twitch Content and trigger warnings for death murder loss of a loved one talk of past torture abandonment talk of chronic illness grey area consent of a kiss grey area cheating drug use talk of suicide and self harmBuddy read with Amy at A Court of Crowns and uills ❤

    actual footage of me thinking about the fact that I Cried Reading This Stupid BookI really could just leave my prereview here as a review so like here's the review sips from an open bottle of vodka any ending that doesn't involve all three of them dating is not valid it's just notOkay just to get the honesty out of the way these get moments of being Too Trashy You can only fit in around 50 literary allusions before it starts being kind of annoying WE GET THE TALE OF TWO CITIES THING FOR THE LOVE OF GOD Also it totally has that overdramatic fanfiction uality but it kind of works Yeah I’m aware that I liked this book than it might have deserved and I’m aware that people make fun of this series for The Love TriangleTM Cool So I just came here to say all of them are in love and it should end in all of them dating I am not giving up this opinion Jem and Will are both in love with Tessa canonically and Tessa is in love with both of them canonically and let’s just be really fucking honest with ourselves and say that Jem and Will are completely in love It's 2018 and it's time to admit that as a society I am aware that this is not what occurs in this series and it is my firm belief that under different circumstances they would all be dating and I do not care who fights me on this I guess we stopped pretending this was a review so here’s the part of the review where I scream about the characters aka the reason why I would die for these occasionally trashy books It will still be spoiler free “Yes she doesn't really look like either of us does she? Perhaps she's a girl who's fallen madly in love with me and persists in following me wherever I go”“My talent is shape shifting Will not acting” said Tessa she really said this out loud she really said this and I would kill for her Okay seriously I love Tessa Like I’m actually pissed off by how much she gets slept on because she’s such a good protagonist?? She’s a total Gentle Soul who loves her friends but also has the ability to drag everyone within an inch of their lives and uses it Every time Tessa burns someone I have ten years added to my life she's an icon and I love herOh Jem?? I love Jem Jem has never done a thing wrong in his entire life The only man I trust He projects being So Confident and So On Top Of It and he’s struggling so much Help himOh and I guess we’re talking about Will now too? Will and Tess are my least favorite couple within The Love TriangleTM but I still kind of love Will as a character? So this book had one of the best backstory reveals in any book I’ve read recently and I think this particular backstory is uite brilliant in how it explains his personality and some parts of his character in book one that kind of didn’t make sense I think it probably should have been revealed at the end of book one these books are drawn out but it really is That Backstory Reveal that changed me as a person and gave me a whole new attitude towards Brooding Bad Boy Backstory RevealsTM Let’s talk about Jem and Will and Tessa as a dynamic First of all I love them Second of all I would die for them Third of all help them The plot of these books is just “two of them worry about the third person” repeated over and over for six million pages and don’t get me wrong I think that’s beautiful but also help them And before you ask yes I actually genuinely mantain that the three of them should end this series dating and I’m 85% sure that is exactly how I am supposed to feel I am also around 724% sure that had this not been published in fucking 2011 a hell time that is actually how it might have ended AnywayThis book had such a delightful cast of side characters I love and would die for Henry and Charlotte That one cute scene between them was really fucking cute Like cliche but also I was crying? Sophie is such a good character and always has been I wanted a little bit out of Jessamine but I think she’s given a decent amount of nuance and hey she got me to sympathize with her and root for her redemption arc even though she’s kind of awful Oh you know that thing I talked about in my review of book one where I was like “they’re finally going to address how the downworlders are treated?” I lied they didn’t talk about it even though the lead character Literally Is A Downworlder and no one is emo about it than I am talkaboutsocietalineualityinmytrashliteraturejpg “Ah” said a voice from the doorway “having your annual ‘everyone thinks Will is a lunatic’ meeting are you? “It’s biannual” said Jem “And no this is not that meeting” Oh also I thought this book was fucking hilarious Every single line is the most iconic thing I’ve ever read and I love itso to this asshole and my ex girlfriend for screaming about this with me y'all really ruined my life hope it was fun and also if one of you tells me that I'm going to die when I read Clockwork Princess I will genuinely threaten to never read itBlog | Goodreads | Twitter | Youtube
