Yippee! I'm done with a series! (without abandoning it) And let me just say it was an emotional roller coaster ride to read the finale to The Infernal Devices. Even worse that could have happened? Me reading both Clockwork Princess and Allegiant at the same time because in my humble opinion, it is a bad combo. A very bad combo unless you want to waste boxes of tissues (and I mean more than one).
Actually, any last book plus last book isn't always a great idea... I think you know what I mean. All the emotional and tears (happy, sad, etc...) that may happen.
Essentially I was rushing to finish the last few chapters before I snagged a copy of Allegiant from the school library. (Goal achieved).
My thoughts in a very listwise fashion... (because it's finals month! >_<)
- Remember in my reviews for Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince I said I really disliked Will Herondale? Yeah, it was pretty obvious I was Team Jem. But... Will Herondale is not a bad person after all. In fact, I'm just like Sophie in feeling sympathetic towards him now... which brings me back to square one. *sigh...*
- On the other hand, Tatiana Blackthorn/Lightwood is a nuisance. At least Will was entertaining.
- Does Jem remind you of Kierran from The Iron Fey series spin off??? The silver hair is eerily alike. :p Jem just needs some fairy magic, but no thanks on him being a Downworlder.
- Clockwork Princess is the first book ever (well, as I remember) that nearly got me into tears. Especially in a particular in which I mustn't say without spilling the beans.... I know, you must be thinking, "What?!" Maybe I really have been living under a rock after all.
(I'm also holding out so I don't have to wait for City of Heavenly Fire, lol.)
