Waiting on Wednesday (34): Clockwork Princess

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare
Release Date: March 19th 2013 by Margaret K. McElderry Books
 Format: Hardcover

Goodreads Summary:
Danger intensifies for the Shadowhunters as the New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy comes to a close.

If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it?

The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose.

Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment.

Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy.

Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. The cover. Guilty. I love books with pretty covers. They lure me in like nobody's business (Shameless, I know). But let's talk about that dress. THAT DRESS. Isn't it beautiful? I just love book covers with girls in fabulous dresses and the fact that the red dress the cover girl is wearing is a red dress from the Victorian era just makes my inner fashionista geek out like crazy :D

2. The genre. Young Adult historical fiction/steampunk/urban fantasy. The Infernal devices is a series that just has a bit of everything. These books are so creative and so well-written. They feel like you are a reading a period novel, but a fun one. There is just so much depth in these books and the fantasy elements are so interesting. Need Clockwork Princess asap!

3. The character development. The characters in the Infernal devices series are just SO amazing. They really tug on the heartstrings and are so layered and complex and unique. I love them all so much and need to know what happens with Will, Jem, Tessa, Sophie, Gideon, Charlotte and the rest of the cast of characters.

What do you guys think? :)


  1. I was pulling my hair out at the end of Clockwork Prince, knowing the long wait we'd have to undergo!! Great pick Jennifer! I can't wait to get my hands on this either! :)

    Our Wow

  2. I've never been so excited yet so scared for a book. I loved the way Clockwork Prince ended and I just don't want anything to mess up Jem and Tessa. They are so perfect together. And mean old Will can just find someone new! He should have looked into his curse sooner.
    My WOW

  3. I need this book. I really do! I cannot wait to see how Cassandra is planing to get herself from whole this. Just please don't let Jem dye! Even though I'm maybe team Will I just love Jem! Great pick! :)

  4. The covers of this series are so gorgeous. I haven't started it yet, but I'll wait for this one and read them all at once, I think! I've heard about that torturous cliffhanger at the end of book 2!

  5. I don't think there are many TBR shelves that are missing this book. The Infernal Devices caused so much excitement with their releases and I'm pretty sure this is one of the most anticipated books for next year. I can't wait. Great pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  6. I'm so excited for this! Cassie has hinted numerous times that this book would be heartbreaking, and I really can't wait to read it! :)

    My WoW :)

  7. I'm a Mortal Instruments Fan, but I have to admit that I haven't started the spin-off series yet. I wanna wait until all three of those are out in German as well, so I can read them in one awesome rush. That's gonna take a little while longer, though. ^^ However, I can see why all of you are so eager on this one, so nice pick! =)
