Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is a perfect way to highlight books that we are waiting patiently to be released... it is also a sure-fire way to watch your TBR pile grow!

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 instalment of the best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy.

Expected Publication: March 19 2013

Why am I so eagerly awaiting this release you ask?

Okay, okay... I know what you are thinking.  Most of us are waiting on this book so using up a precious WoW post seems a bit redundant.  But hear me out...

See, I am so excited for the release of Clockwork Princess and I have yet to read any of the Infernal Devices series! *gasp* I know!  But here is the thing.  When I read the Mortal Instrument books I was hooked from the start and I knew I would love this spin-off series.  However... those of you who have read any book by Clare will know she is a huge fan of the dreaded cliffhanger.  And they are normally HUGE cliffhangers so I was thankful that at that time five of the six books from the MI series were already out.  This meant I didn't have to wait to start the next one.

So when I finished City of Lost Souls I contemplated starting Clockwork Angel right away but then I saw that book three wouldn't be released until March of next year.  I then did the impossible, I showed restraint.  This is very rare, trust me!  Even though I have been tempted many times and almost caved several times I am determined to read Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince just before this release so that I can read them all together.

In a way I am quite proud that I have been able to hold back.  And from what I have heard from others I will not be disappointed when I do get to read them.

What is your Waiting on Wednesday?

  1. If I really want to read a book I just can't wait for the next books in the series to be published! I have read Clockwork Angel and I want to read the rest. I just haven't come around to reading Clockwork Prince yet... Huge TBR pile ;)

  2. You have more control than I do! And you're right about the cliffhangers. Dare I say that TID has some of the worst/most frustrating I've ever read. I do love this series though, more than I love TMI. Even though the books rip your heart out and shreds it. I am kind of scared for the emotional roller coaster that is bound to be Clockwork Princess.

    Here's my Wow if you're interested :D

  3. Wow, that's some restraint, you're showing here! I couldn't do it, but I have to live with the cliffhangers. So, I'm not sure, if I'm better off now. It's not so long anymore... and there's the movie stuff to follow in the meantime. I just keep telling myself that. ;)

    Here’s our WOW.

  10. The release date is tooooooooo far away. I need more Jem, Will, & Tessa. :)

  11. Wow. Kudos to you, Christine, for being able to resist the temptation! I really liked Clockwork Angel but I DEVOURED Clockwork Prince and that book tore my heart to pieces!!

  12. Awesome choice! I have had a copy of Clockwork Angel sitting on top of my bookshelf for far too long - since I was reading the Mortal Instruments series (like you!) I really need to crack it open...I have a feeling I'm going to love this series more than The Mortal Instruments :) Thanks for sharing, old follower - here's my WoW this week.
