I will first give you, the unedited review, this is what I felt and thought when I first finished the book. Be wary, it contains so many spoilers you will have to jump to the end of it if you do not want to know what happens at the end of the book. You have been warned.

Where to start? I like them enough, but I had already watched the first 2 season of the series, and I must say they are pretty similar to the books, I could easily picture Sam Heugham and Caitriona Balfe while reading, although Jamie is much taller in the books.
Brianna and Roger on the other hand, are nothing like in the books, sorry for the actor and actress who portray them, but they did not work for me, one bit.

Alright, we are gathered here once more to talk about what we love… I assume you love it if you are reading this, so thank you for reading.
I should have posted this long ago, I know but the new episode is right around the corner (June 5, in case you did not know, along with the new season of Stitchers *smiling*), and I felt it my duty to fill in some blanks for all to know and be on the lookout for what should be happening next in the show. Now or never was the time.
Do I need to say is by Cassandra Clare? You probably already know that, but there I said it. Now, I might have to warn you that this review could contain some minor spoilers, that I might talk a lot about Julian Blackthorn, and that I freaking loved it! Even more so than the other 10, I was as surprised as anyone else, because I love TMI and Clockwork Princess became one of my favorite books, but Lady Midnight was just too F**king Awesome!
And I know you will enter my chaotic thought process… thank you for being here. What you are about to read has some minor spoilers and it was written during and shortly after I read LM.
By Cassandra Clare
I’ll try to make this quick…
I tend to say that but considering that I have to talk about Jem, Will and Tessa that might not be entirely true this time… oh! And Gideon as well as Gabriel and Cecily but the latter two will not be that much in my ramblings…
What to say that has not been said before? I know, lots of things! Because never in my wildest dreams (cue in Taylor Swift’s song in the background if you want) would have I imagined that Cassandra could surprise me or make me love even more characters from the Shadow World, Jem is almost certainly perfect, Tess can be a little bit annoying but by book 3 you wanted to be like her or have her luck, that was when you were not crying over the events on that book, as for Will Herondale… what can I say? You might have thought he was just like Jace but in the end he really wasn’t, not entirely.
But that is enough for the overview, I will give you a bit of what I thought as I was reading Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, since Clockwork Angel is pretty much done in that link you just overlooked.
By Cassandra Clare
I should really wait until I finish all three books, which is what I was going to do before writing this, oh! Well, I am doing it right now.
Have you read The Mortal Instruments? I hope you have, because they are so completely awesome, but this is about what happened before Clary, Jace, the Lightwoods, and Simon all got together to save the world.
By Neil Gaiman
Well, this is a first. I didn’t like this book as much as I suspected I would, I loved the movie is one of my favourite movies of all times, I have lost count the times I’ve watched it, I practically know the dialogues by heart as well as the music and scenery, I loved it.
But we are here, in this virtual space because of the books, books we love, books we share with others, books we share even when we don’t like them that much. I wish I could say that I absolutely adored this read but I got to be honest, I have read better, I am not saying that Mr Gaiman is a bad a writer or nothing of the sort because he isn’t and he has incredible imagination, this is about me and the fixation I had with the movie, I suppose. Although it really is the first time that I read something and don’t find it as charming as the film.
