Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

I'd let to get one thing across the table right now: Just because I like Cassandra Clare's work doesn't mean I like her as a person. 

I love her works. Man, those are good stories, but that whole thing about cyberbullying others? Not cool. I can read her stuff, I can like her stuff, doesn't mean I like her. It's like Taylor Swift. I'm this total Swiftie fan (and I'm pretty sure I spelled that wrong), but her date-and-dump thing going on doesn't agree with me.

Just getting that across the board.

This reveiw has spoilers from the last two books.

Things you might want to get when reading this book:

  • ice cream
  • tissues
  • warm blanket

But Oh by the Angel, this was a shmurgaberg shadow-tastic book. There will be tears. There will be sobs, and there will be extreme shock. If you have been scrolling through tumblr, or heard some sort of rumor, it's just coming from those who have already read them book and is right. But for those who have been hoping for it, no, Jem and Will do not have a heated make-out session. But the rest I've heard have been correct.

But the love thing kind of confuses me. I feel like Tessa agreed to the engagement with Will was because she felt like she would've felt guilty saying no. Not that she actually loved him. Which was weird, but it kind of goes the same thing with Will and Tessa. All I know is they have stuff in common, Will is a hot guy and boom- a bit of chemistry. What? I just don't understand. This is like Piper and Jason from Riordan's The Heroes of Olympus. Actually, for that one, I haven't even figured out what they have in common, and why they like each other.

I was still confused at some parts, but the writing was good. Though she did take quite a lot of pages just to write one fight scene which I though was kind of cool. It was like the second book to Fallen, a whole book just about like 15 days. Woah. A hectic life there. The fight scenes were detailed, but not so much that they were overly-gory, and the romance there was hot and heated. Definite plus.

I liked the details of Tessa's London, and the Epilouge was heart-wrenchingly....breaking. Yea. That. I just sobbed though the whole thing. So just get ready for a sob-fest. It was sad that this whole series ended and I am extremely close to these characters (if not closer than those in TMI). So it was quite sad for me.

I hope you will/had enjoy(ed) this book!
