Before I get into this can we just admire this beauty:

Annnnnd I’m back!

Okay so I’m currently reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare and I’m about 31% into it according to Goodreads. I am really enjoying this book a lot more than I did City of Bones. I’m comparing them because they’re the first book in a series that are set in the same world.

A lot of people who personally know me have told me that I would love this trilogy way more than The Mortal Instruments. Let’s see if that’s true.

So far I’m loving the female characters and how Cassandra makes a point that although this is set in the 1800s, women in the Shadowhunter universe are equal as men. And the Shadowhunter men treat the women as such.

I’m loving the writing in this book and the setting so much! I feel like I’m there in London in the 1800s wearing these beautiful dresses.

So no complaints as of yet.

Have you read this trilogy? What did you think? And if you also read The Mortal Instruments, did you read it by publication date?

  1. I can’t wait to start this myself! I loved TMI, so when I keep hearing that I will love this even more, I get excited 🙂 I recently bought, them, just haven’t gotten to them, yet. I’m glad you’re liking it!

  2. I wasn’t surprised that I enjoted TID so much (more than TMI) being that I love 1800’s London, No I don’t think I would have been able to pull off a corset given this past Friday’s wedding dress situation BUT lol I luv that setting in history! I read TMI in it’s entirety before TID but then again this was before I connected with other readers to get the heads up on reading it any other way lol.

  3. I recently finished this trilogy and I’m among the 1% who prefers TMI more than TID. Unfortunately, I wasn’t blown away by this series but it sure was a good read. But hopefully you’ll enjoy it more than I did! 🙂
