The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them…

Review6

Not really. The way Clare writes kinda reminds me of myself. The way we describe things and write characters is very similar. I just wish it was longer.

Review7  8/10 very violent with lots of blood and gore and torture. A really lovely read! ,)

Review9   A few minor swear words, nothing too horrible.

Review8.png  Some innuendoes. There’s two teenage boys, its to be expected. A few mentions of brothels and one scene near the end that is a little suggestive.

Well. I hope you enjoyed my first Mini Review!

June 6:  10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR ListI want to know what books have piqued your interest lately from whatever genre you choose!

(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish)

I wasn’t sure if I was going to do this weeks topic, then thought YOLO! (Don’t tell my youth pastor I said that, she hates it when people say YOLO)

#1

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Book76

I bought Allegiant and decided to  read the other books before starting it, so this is now on my TBR.

#2

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

Book56

I got this the same day as Allegiant. It seems pretty cool, I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.

#3

The Black Elfstone by Terry Brooks

Book77

I saw the show on Netflix a few months ago, but only recently found out there were books.

#4

The Spiderwick Chronicles by Holly Black

Book78.jpg

I grew up on the movie and have been looking forward to reading the books. But they’re so expensive! I can’t find them anywhere at a decent price .( .

#5

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Book79

I know it’s scary and I’ll never sleep again, but I LOVED the movie! We aren’t allowed to watch it cause of the younger kids, but if I can get my hands on this book you better believe I’ll read it!

#6

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

Book70

I only added this to my TBR for the cover, without reading anything about it. I just read the summary AND I WANT TO READ IT KNOW! It sounds dark and violent and right up my alley! The only problem is I’m not sure my parents will let me. They have been more lenient with books lately. Not sure why, but I’m glad. Just a couple years ago they would never have let me read things like Agatha Christie, Alex Rider, or The Last of the Mohicans. Mom was hesitant to let me read The Outsiders! Maybe it’s because I’m growing up?

#7

The Shock of the Night by Patrick W. Carr

Book74

I loved the Staff and the Sword books and really want to continue reading Carr’s work.

#8

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Book66

I wasn’t going to read the rest of these books, but why not? The first book was ok.

#9

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Book57.jpg

I haven’t read any of Clare’s books yet, even though I own two of them! I really need to handle up on my TBR….

#10

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Book80

I learned my lesson with Artemis Fowl, ALWAYS READ THE BOOKS IN ORDER! I have City of Ashes but I’m gonna read ^this^ first. I don’t want to be confused again, and I would like some surprises here!

TBR #3

TBR1

Oh, yeah! Third TBR! Things actually seem ok here 😉 . Now den, let us begin,

Book1

Book56.jpg (Goodreads)

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

 I was given this by one of the women at our homeschool co-op and my dad said it was good….

Book2

Book57.jpg (Goodreads)

In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them…

Everyone seems to love Cassandra Clare. I hope its as good as I’ve heard!

Book3

Book52 (Goodreads)

In a world where fairies lurk and curses linger, love can bleed like the prick of a finger…

Briar Rose knows her life will never be a fairy tale. She’s raising her siblings on her own, her wages at the spinning mill have been cut, and the boy she thought she had a future with has eyes for someone else. Most days it feels like her best friend, Henry Prince, is the only one in her corner…though with his endless flirty jokes, how can she ever take him seriously?

When a mysterious peddler offers her a “magic” spindle that could make her more money, sneaking it into the mill seems worth the risk. But then one by one, her fellow spinner girls come down with the mysterious sleeping sickness…and Briar’s not immune.

If Briar wants to save the girls—and herself—she’ll have to start believing in fairy tales…and in the power of a prince’s kiss.

I don’t own this book yet, but I will! Soon!
