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.

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.
I have to do this… can’t have it stuck in me forever.
Matthew Daddario and Harry Shum Jr… good good, at first I wasn’t sure about Matthew but one look at him in this teaser was enough, I hope he doesn’t dissapoint, Harry (Magnus), I think he’ll be great but hey, I’m partial because I think he’s great. The general scene it was good but what is the problem then, you are probably wondering…
My concern is this… why would ABC show a teaser with Clary talking like Bella (Twilight)? You might not agree but come on! It is right there, I’m not trash-talking about Twilight it is a completely different kind of story and scenario which brings me back to my point why give it that feel of it, and also that Disney world style?
Book and Movie
Alright, as many of you may know, I don’t normally do movies here but I haven’t done 50 shades the book either and since I saw the movie, I felt like I should let it out of my system. Then I decided to make a little combo just for the sake of it and because Jamie is an awesome actor.
FSOG the book
Many of you know that it was originally thought as a Twilight fan fiction, no matter what anyone might try to say to deny that, and let us face it people, the resemblance is there, if you want a short list of them I can give it to you know.
FSOG – Twilight
*Anastasia (Ana) Steele.
*Isabella (Bella) Swan.
They both want to be called by their nickname.
They both think they are not pretty, even when the man of their life says otherwise; they both do crazy stuff to protect their hot boyfriend like cutting the palm of their hand so a vindictive vampiresse go after them or go meet a crazy ex-employee.
They both get pregnant even when the guy didn’t want a child and then the hot bf comes around and loves the kid (obviously is their son/daughter)
Both have issues. (One more than the other). They are rich, they are adopted, and they want to buy expensive stuff to their girls.
Younger sister of C.G aka Alice from Twilight, they both love the brunette straightaway, they both are annoyingly sparkly.
Rosalie and Kate, both gorgeous and Bella/Ana wishes to be a little more like them in their heads most of the time.
Elliot and Emmett, come on. Even the names are similar and the personalities completely the same.
The same for the parents.
Oh! The most important thing of all, the break-up in book two, come on! Bella and Ana living on nothing, basically. And depressed to no end.
By Shana Abé
Well hello readers! Here we are again. Another book or books, another post full of my inner thoughts.
If you are a regular to Books Everywhere, then you might know Ms. Shana Abé author of the Drákon Series and many other books. The Drákon Series is by far one of my favourite stories, and of course Shana is one of my absolute favourite authors, since she is one of the few who actually makes me read descriptions and pay attention to the little things in a book because if you don’t know them, then you end up completely lost and have to go back a chapter or two and find out what truly happened.
But enough of that you are reading this because you want a new book to read or you love these two in The Sweetest Dark Series. Let us begin.
The Sweetest Dark
It was a damn good one, even if I cried like the soft girl I am inside with it. I didn’t think another book about Drákon would be this good and don’t get me wrong, is nothing against anyone is just that The Smoke Thief, The Time Weaver, and The Dream Thief were just freaking awesome and the other 2, Queen Of Dragons and The Treasure Keeper were just as good, but you see which ones would be my pick to travel with. Going back to TSD is set many years after, it can be read as a stand-alone, however, I highly recommend to read the others first.
In this one, the author show us once more that she can confuse you to the point of craziness, and then you are like: Oh!! That’s what happened, that wasn’t what I imagined at all.
I thought Jesse was great, an amazing character as well as Eleanore. I don’t know what to say about Jesse, other than that he is so loveable… by the end of it all, I was sighing each time he made an appearance.
Eleanore, the female lead is something else entirely. And you must know by now, how I don’t say that about all female characters because most of the time, they annoy me. But she didn’t and it makes me happy when that happens, so I won’t have to write anything bad about a female.
By Gayle Forman
And a little something about: If I Stay
Alright, everyone ready for this?
I mean seriously, I spent like 5 or 10 minutes after I was done with the book looking through wiki and Gayle’s official website for another piece of Adam and Mia, and you know what I found? You know it, Nothing!
Where she went ended like that, and that’s that… very eloquent of me. I don’t care at the moment. Is almost midnight right now, I’ll probably post this sometime tomorrow, meaning the 13th of Jan 2014. But I just finished reading Where She Went like I just mentioned and, ok, bravo to Gayle Forman because she definitely hooked me with this one, I literally read the book in half a day with intermissions, if you ask my app reader I read it in 5 hours total or so. I jumped from If I Stay right into this one because it was such a cliffhanger with the other, the way it was in the movie, which by the way is great and I must confess it was because of it and amazing Chloë Grace Moretz and Jamie Blackley, that I even considered reading it. Hey, I’m sorry if for the first time ever I said that, I was trying to be honest if you know anything about me at all or my reading style than I’m sure you’ll understand, this is a weird thing for me, to see a movie before reading the book but then again it was Chloë acting and I adore that girl.
