I took a few days off from reading after finishing the 4 books I blogged about last time.
I had said that the next two books I would read would be Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. These are a new series of prequel books to The Mortal Instruments by the same author. (You can read a little about the books here).
Well, I eagerly picked up Clockwork Angel and dove into it.
I was kind of disappointed.
I think I liked the idea of the prequel, but then when I got into it I quickly realized that I missed all of the characters that I fell in love with in The Mortal Instruments. Most of them are not in the prequels, obviously. I just got a little confused about what was going on, who was who, and I honestly got bored with the plot. I really only finished the book as quickly as I did because I wanted to move on. And I didn’t move on to the next book.
I had totally forgotten that the 5th book in The Mortal Instruments came out on May 8th!
Yessssssss! Those are the characters I know & love! I started it first thing this morning and I’m currently about 60% of the way done. It’s pretty dang good! I’m curious to see where the series will end…or if this is the end….who knows for sure really with some of these authors? Next up I’ll probably go back to Clockwork Prince just to get it out of the way. I’m really hoping I can get back into it! I want to like it. I really do.
I can’t wait to read this next series that was suggested to me.
I know absolutely nothing about it from the plot, to the characters, to the author, etc. I hadn’t even heard of it until just a few days ago and apparently I’m way behind. All I know is that they were recommended to me by a few people whose opinions I fully trust and are fellow book nerds like myself. They like what I like, so if they’re reading it, I should be too!
What are you reading this week?
I better get back to my book while it’s still quiet in here!
