BOOK REVIEW ~ CLOCKWORK ANGEL

Let me preface this by saying this review is spoiler free! I wouldn’t dream of taking one drop of surprise away from you, so rest assured you can read on without fear.

Now, I’ve made no bones about the fact that my absolute favorite book of all time is CITY OF GLASS, and that my favorite author is -you guessed it - Cassandra Clare.  You have to realize then, that I had very high expectations for the first book in her new THE INFERNAL DEVICES trilogy, CLOCKWORK ANGEL. Add to that knowledge that this book incorporates elements of Steampunk! (a fixation of mine for ages) and you’re starting to see that the expectations I held were not only very high, they were ridiculously high, insurmountably high, so very VERY high that it seemed completely impossible CLOCKWORK ANGEL could skim the surface of what I was hoping and expecting it to be.

It wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. It was SO MUCH BETTER!

You may doubt me right now. I’ve heard and read a lot of different people say they worry they won’t love this series the way they loved THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS books.  (And if you haven’t yet read those, I shoo you forcefully away with the strict instruction to buy and read them IMMEDIATELY… don’t bother checking them out from the library. You’re going to want your own copies. Trust me.)  Here’s the deal. What was it you so loved about the TMI books? Whatever your answer was, I can almost guarantee you that element features in CLOCKWORK ANGEL, too.

I’m not going to bother with a broad summary of the intro or hook of this story line. Doubtless you’ve read those already. You know that the story centers around a young warlock named Tessa Gray who travels from her native New York to London to find her brother in 1878. What you don’t know, and what I am going to tell you, is the reason WHY you’re going to love this book. The answer to that lies in the prose of CLOCKWORK ANGEL, itself:

 “There was something particular and beautiful about the way the stele scrawled – not like ink flowing from a pen, but more as if the lines had always been there, and Will was uncovering them.”

When I read this, it made me pause. Not just because I enjoyed the imagery it evoked, but because it seemed such an apt description of Cassandra Clare’s writing itself. It’s exactly the way reading her work feels: not as if she’s creating this fantastical world with ingenious plots, unforgettable characters, and glittering prose, but as if she is simply uncovering these things for the reader.  Her characters are so alive – so real and round – it’s impossible not to love and hurt right along with them. The themes and the plot are perfectly balanced: gritty and modern without ever having to try too hard to be edgy. The romance and relationships are just as complicated in this series as the last (though that probably sounds unlikely to you, trust me!) and the twists will have you speeding to the end of the pages and then cursing the publishing industry that the wait for book two is so painfully long!

So you can stop worrying now, and give your readership trust over to Cassandra Clare. She hasn’t let us down yet, and CLOCKWORK ANGEL is no exception. My advice?  Clear  your schedule for August 31st, you aren’t going to be able to put this one down!

Friends Only! You Over There...You Heard Me!

Since this is my only unlocked post, and because it previously said. "Friends only, comment to be added." the journal rating meme rated my journal as elementary reading level. That irked me, and led me to write the following ridiculous rephrasing of "Friends only, comment to be added.":
Amicable individuals that have previously made my acquaintance are henceforth the only individuals allowed permission to view the musings and transcriptions of thoughts located at this particular congregation of my most personal thoughts. I request that you leave correspondence at this location should you desire to affiliate with aforementioned individuals.

 

My journal is now rated as High School reading level. See? Using superfluous wording does make you sound like a butt wipe more intelligent. At least the internet thinks so.




This has been a long time coming. Drop me a comment and tell me where I know you from (fandom, life, whatever) and we'll go from there

2.5 Years of Concerts

Flipping through my lastfm account earlier, I thought it would be interesting to see how many bands I've actually seen since I opened up that account and started keeping track. I wish I had a record of all the shows before that, because I can't even guess how manys gigs Greg and I hit in the pre-kid days. But, just for giggles, here's a (mostly) complete list of the past 2.5 years or so! I have several first time shows coming up that I'm crazy psyched for (STEVE MOAKLER! BEN RECTOR!) and several bands I'm seeing again soon that I can't wait for (SLEEPERSTAR, TYRONE WELLS, ERNIE HALTER!) Bring on the music!

Reading List 2010


 
So. I may or may not have failed miserably at last years 100 books goal. I blame that on the fact that my bestest friend lived here for eight out of those twelve months, and we were too busy concerting, writing, and being generally awesome to do much reading. She left though, right before Christmas, so I'm back to having ample time to bury myself into the fictional worlds of others. This year -- as I did the year before last -- I expect to exceed my goal of 100. I also plan to blog at least twice a week, so here's hoping I can get back into the swing of LJ! And now, without further ado, I present to you my reading list for 2010.

Thoughts:

1. 01/02/2010  Hold Still by Nina LaCour
Im not sure what my deal is with books like these at the New Year. (Last year's book #1 was 13 Reasons Why.) Like 13RW, Hold Still deals with teen suicide. In this book the main character, Caitlin, has just lost her best friend to suicide. As she's in the process of coming to terms with her own guilt and loss, she discovers that Ingrid left her journal under her bed as a farewell. The prose and the story are both haunting, and while this book was downright painful to read at points, it was well worth the hurt. Highly recommended!

Holy Blog Neglect, Batman

So, I didn't die. This may surprise some of you since I seemed to drop off of the face of the planet about four months ago! I'm here, though, and I'm BACK. Back to blogging, back to reading and commenting! Generally back. :)

I'll update in a day or two about the milestone that was my baby's first day of Kindergarten last Monday, but for now I just wanted to drop in and say HELLO. I CAN HAZ RETURN?
