Clockwork Angel

Review Time! I'm a huge fan of the Mortal Instruments ( no joke, hard core) and when I found out that a new series was coming out set in the same world as the Mortal Instruments I was super excited. I have this obsession with book sets in the 1800's so this was like a dream come true :P

Short Story? - I don't know what all the fuss about Will is Jem all the way! Oh, and can't wait for the second one!

Long Story?- I absoulutely loved this book, I have read alot of good books lately but this one was Okay, so Cassandra Clare is a fanstastic writer but this book was just so good! It wsn't as funny as the Mortal Instruments but then it was set in a era where humour was rather dry so it all fits. There was clearly alot of research involved so credit to that ( historical fiction is almost as hard to write as Fantasy). I actually liked the "other" guy in this book more than the main one so that was diffierent from Mortal Instruments. The start was abit slow but it was really face paced so that was good. Um, I loved the cover, it was so mysterious and pretty that I spent alot of my time just staring at the book instead of reading it. I honestly can not choose which series I liked better but the plot was more interesting in this one hasnd down, I don't know if it's going to stay that way in the next book but hopefully it does! Great book overall, excellent characters, different, original, beautifully written ( fingers crossed that Jem and Tessa get together :P), cliff-hanger ending, 2010 MUST -READ! Rating 5/5

Badass Bookie xx


  1. I'm so glad to read this is a good novel. I haven't read the Mortal Instrument series yet (saving it for when I'm in a reading slump) but I bought this book so I'd have it to read after the first three. Thanks for the review!

  2. hi, I just gave you a blog award, check it out on my blog!


  3. What an awesome blog you have here! It's really pretty too!

  4. I like Will but I am a sucker for the bad boys with issues. I think the people who don't like this type just latched on to Jem because he seems like such a sweetie. I think the next book is his chance to shine.

  5. We have all of the "Mortal Instruments" books, too. I got the first for my Not So Bebe Girl Autumn last Christmas, which meant that soon after, I had to get the others. I have THIS one on my 'to-buy' list for THIS Christmas!
