Hello, darlings! It's time for Waiting on Wednesdays hosted by the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It's a weekly meme used by many bookish blogs so we can geek out over our most highly anticipated books and their gorgeous covers. My pick this week is part of a very popular series and it was in so many WoWs when the cover was first revealed, so I wanted that to die down a bit before I featured it as mine.

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)
Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Release Date: March 19, 2013
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.

Well, first things first. It comes out exactly three months before my birthday! I realize this doesn't exactly give me any claim on it, but it's all I have, so let me have it! I just think that that is so cool. It just makes me really happy.

It's less than 100 days now, guys. Like, it's getting so much closer to being here. I can't take it. Oh my God, I just can't take it! I need this book now. Like, more than I need breathing. Breathing is boring, to take a cue from Sherlock.

I am Team Jem all the way, even though I'm pretty sure that he's going to…you know. I'm going to be sure to have a box of tissues beside me as I read this one.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
Link me up! :)


  1. I'm a TMI fan, but I admit I haven't started on TID yet. The first book is sitting on my shelf already, but I want to read them all one after another, so I'm paitently waiting for Clockwork Princess to come out in German so I can devour this trilogy. However, thus I'm also not sharing so much of all your excitement. =(
    Well, nice pick, I'm sure it'll be a great final! My WoW

  2. Oh, heart be still...I can't wait for this one. It's sad that there has to be so much time between all of her books though.

    Nikki @ Books Most Wanted

  3. All of Cassanda Clare's book covers are seriously amazing! Great pick! Happy reading :D

    What I'm Waiting for This Wednesday
    My Enormous TBR Pile

  4. I liked Book One but haven't read the book two yet (GASP! I know) but I should get around to it sometime soon!

    My WOW this week

  5. OH ANNABELLE. I wonder if they're distributing ARCs for this book. I haven't heard anything about that. They so don't need to, but if they do, I know you'd get one, Annabelle. Great choice!

    My WoW

  6. Great choice and that cover! Love it. I actually haven't started either of Cassie Clare's series and I really really need to get on that! Great pick!

    Here’s My WoW!


  7. Huge TID fan here! I'm dying to know how it all ends for our trio! I love this series...even more than TMI! Great pick! Thanks for sharing. Here's my WoW post! Happy Wednesday! :D

  8. I still need to read Clockwork Prince, I figure I might as well wait for this one to out before I read it so I can read both, although this is definitely my favorite cover out of all of the books. Great pick

    Kristin @ Young Adult Book Haven

  9. I need this book in my life! The wait has been killer! Though the wait for City of Heavenly Fire seems much worse. I am Team Will, BUT I do still love Jem. I have no idea what will happen but I am pretty sure Cassie will tear all of our hearts out. Great pick! :)

    My W.O.W.

  10. Oh, yes I can't wait for this one! I may just have to do a re-read of 1 and 2 in celebration of this releasing. :) Great pick!
    My WoW Pick!


  11. My goodness that sounds like a good book. Great pick and Happy Reading! Here is my WoW for this week!

  12. I recently read the first 3 books from the Mortal Instruments and I'm planning to read this series soon :)!

    WoW at Mel@thedailyprophecy.

  13. YES! This book! I need to read it! Super great pick!

    My WoW

  14. I absolutely love this cover on this one! It's gorgeous! I can't wait to sit down and read this series all in one sitting once this one is out. That's all I'm waiting on! Happy reading.
    Waiting on Weds @Libby Blog


  16. I can't wait to-read this book. I loved the first two and I just can't wait to get my hands on it. Great pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  17. I've heard great things about this series but I really have to catch up! I actually made it one of my goals this year to catch up with all of Cassandra's books. :D I'm a new GFC follower!

    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

    1. I recently nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. If you don't want to do a post or anything, it's absolutely fine.

      Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  18. I haven't read Cassie Clare yet, but MY GOSH that cover!!

    Ahhh darling, it's so great to finally be commenting on your blog again after such an absence. Sad day that I can't comment all the time like I used to...I miss it!

    <3 you!
    Sierra @ Yearning to Read

  19. I love TMI and TID and I'm going to read her new one, the Dark Artifices, just because I think Cassandra Clare is amazing.
    The TMI movie is coming out this year!!!! It is going to beat Twilight AND the Hunger Games to the ground, or I'll know why!
