ID: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Let me preface this review with a warning… I am a blubbering idiot about this series ending!  If you haven’t watched the video below, then you’ve been spared the embarrassment of my brain going into meltdown mode.  Of course, I thought it would be clever to record my thoughts immediately finishing Clockwork Princess, needless to say that I won’t be doing that again.
Now that I have taken three days to compose myself, in addition to being unable to pick up another book because my head and heart are healing from …

Set Visit to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

I first shared my  love for Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments Series back in 2009!  I posted the first three books as our Book(s) of the Month, in hopes of getting Kassie as enthralled with the books as myself (Kallie)!  This series is one of the reasons I started BookshelfBanter.com.  I wanted to provide a place to discuss all the books I love.
Today I received an invitation to the set of the highly anticipated movie being made, City of Bones!  So, in two weeks I will be headed to Toronto to share, not only …

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

City of Lost Souls is the most riveting novel Cassandra Clare has written, EVAH, and that’s saying a lot!  I enjoyed the first three books in Clare’s The Mortal Instruments Series, and I will even admit that I thought City of Fallen Angels was really good.  But, my oh, my!  These characters lives, that Clare has so intricately woven together, have become so action packed it’s engrossing. I also adore the first two books in Clare’s The Infernal Devices Trilogy, and truly believed she could not write characters I would love more …

Oh goodness!! I am in LOVE with this challenge! We all know how much I like men-talking about them, looking at them, reading about them… 😉 In all seriousness…this has been a great and fun challenge! One of the things I have realized, though, is that because I like them so much, I have had an extremely hard time picking just one. BUT, with that being said, let me be clear that I would pick my fantastic husband over ALL of these picks! He kicks all of their butts! It …

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

Stefanie:

Kallie:
I have so many words whirling through my brain right now, and I am not sure how to explain to you what I am feeling!  Clockwork Prince, Book Two of The Infernal Devices, is a ravishing, enticing, and provocative novel.  This intricate story begins in Clockwork Angel, Clare’s first book in the prequel to her Mortal Instruments Series.  I was captivated by Tessa, Will and Jem in Book One and my attentions did not stray when reading Clare’s latest novel, due to be released this December.
The story picks up right …
