Clockwork Angel (Reissue)
Clockwork Angel (Reissue) | Cassandra Clare
Magic is dangerous but love is more dangerous still. Discover the compulsively readable ("Booklist") first book in the #1 "New York Times" bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series now with a gorgeous new cover, a map, a foreword, and excusive bonus content! "Clockwork Angel "is a Shadowhunters novel. When Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks, and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos. Kidnapped by a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform into another person. What s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own. Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by and torn between two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm s length everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all."

So I figured I might as well keep my #TBRCleanup going for the variety, alongside my #LeastRated 😊

Out of the 10 left I think I'll try to finish the tagged book first, because I was reading it the most recently, then I think I'll try The Fire Queen because it's been half finished for the longest...

But it's me so I'll probably read something entirely different just because I can 😅

#TBRChallenge ❤🧡💛

Suet624 This is such a great idea. I need to do it! I have a huge TBR. (edited) 3mo
TCLinrow @Suet624 same! I decided it was about time I got it under control 😂 3mo
Suet624 Did you use an app to put this grid and book photos together? 3mo
TCLinrow @Suet624 I did 😊 the grib was a from a site called myfreebingocards.com and I added the pictures on once I finished them on an app called Pic Collage 3mo
Suet624 Perfect! Thanks for the info. 3mo

I made it! Just... 😊😎
5 books finished (all started beforehand; I'm good, but I'm far from that good!) and two more well and truly dented!
I'm almost half way through Annihilation, and I knocked another 130 pages off the tagged 😁 Not bad for a weekend's work.
My #TBRCleanup selection is looking much better now too ☺️

Got a few more hours in last night but found myself flicking between books (and going off script with Pride and Prejudice for an hour😊).
Hoping to put a dent in the tagged today, and maybe finish off one or two of the remaining Little Black Classics (A Cup of Sake..., How to Use Your Enemies, and The Eve of St Agnes).
I'm working today, but weekends are the quietest time, so should have time for #24b4Monday😊

i loved Tessa‘s character development and i hope that continues throughout the series. It was a very good opening novel it may be hard for the author to answer all the questions she introduce because every question she answered she brought another three in. Regarding Will the book touches on his history I hope the series continues otherwise he‘s gonna get annoying to read because how am I supposed to feel bad for him if i don‘t know what happened

I have a little over a hundred pages left and these are my thoughts so far. I love Jem so much he‘s my favourite character. The story is really interesting a little predictable but i like it I‘m excited to see where it goes and read the rest of the series.

So something i don‘t understand about Tessa‘s character and maybe someone can explain it to me is that she is dumbfounded by women who fight and where pants “women dont have those sort of feelings... warrior feelings” but then at the same time is frustrated when people tell her she cant do stuff because she is a girl (see page 96)

I'm between a Pick and So-So.

It was entertaining enough to keep me going while making my daughter a skirt from scratch, and up past midnight preparing Cinnamon Rolls (my neighbour's had her second baby and mentioned a craving for Cinnamon Rolls yesterday - it's a surprise, so don't tell her 😁). But, I saw the plot twists coming from a mile away.

Not sure whether I want to read the next in the series.

I'm not sure whether you've read this series yet. Anyway, I had to chuckle upon this.

DuckOfDoom I almost think those are the best of the book 😅 YA is not my genre at the moment :/ 5mo

TCLinrow @julesG I've been meaning to read it for ages, and it's been sitting on my shelf for far too long, so I grabbed it for reading on the train. I didn't have high hopes but so far at least I'm enjoying being proved wrong 😊 5mo

Wow, I'm amazed its been so long since I posted here! I have a good few reviews to post but for now here's my current read.
I'm enjoying it but it's set in the Victorian era but the language isn't quite right and I keep forgetting. Also, Will feels like a copy of Jace from The Mortal Instruments and i keep picturing him.
But I am enjoying it ☺️

I love the setting of the book in 19th century London. It was fast paced and fun to read, it reminded me a bit of the steampunk genre dressed in the Shadowhunter disguise. Honestly speaking, I enjoyed it more than Mortal Instruments.

If only you guys knew how much I love this series. I don't think that I have ever loved a series (Harry Potter excluded) this much.
Cassie Clare is really a master since she created the Shadowhunter world.

Also, Will Herondale is the love of my life. He is such a precious being.. agh I can't even write about him without being sentimental.

I have been trying to finish these books all month, and I am just not feeling it. Could it be that I am just not in the mood?
I have tried to start the clockwork angel, for ages. Just can't seem to focus enough to stay with it. And you would think I would have finished Pollyanna ages ago. Since it is a quick read. I keep finding myself stopping.
Should I stop all together, and read something else? Go back to it?? I need advice
