Synopsis

 

I am always so captivated by Sara Shepard’s writing. I forgot how much I love this series! I read The Lying Game back in March of 2013, so it was a little rough for me in the beginning of this book because I had forgotten most of the first book’s events. But I’m so glad I chose to continue the series because I just really love Sutton and Emma’s story! It’s so fun to follow Emma in her investigation. (I would even go as far to say I’m starting to like this series more than Pretty Little Liars, but those books will always hold a special place in my heart.)

Synopsis

 

(4.5 Stars)

Whoa okay so I definitely really enjoyed this first novel in the Infernal Devices series (although it took me forever to finally finish it because of school and other books…). It was refreshing to be back in the world of the Shadowhunters, since the last novel I read involving them was last October (City of Glass…I know, I need to catch up!)

Tessa Gray is an interesting main character, and I believe I like her more than Clary Fray, from The Mortal Instruments. I went into reading this novel having no idea what it was really about, just that it was supposed to be a prequel novel to TMI. Therefore, to learn that the main character had an intriguing power was exciting! I also enjoyed reading about Will and Jem, and all the other inhabitants of the London institute. They’re all so lovely and different from one another.

The Infernal Devices takes place in 1878, which adds a historical feel to Clockwork Angel; this was truly interesting. I usually do not like historical fiction, but since this novel was more of fantasy, it was not bad at all! I actually quite liked how Tessa seemed so old-fashioned and how her and Will would quote literature from their era! It was pretty cool.

*I don’t think you need to read the Mortal Instruments series before reading this book, but it makes it more fun since there are so many references to places and people throughout!

NEW Sara Shepard Series!

20549288

So in my review for Toxic I mentioned discovering an advertisement for a brand new Sara Shepard series. It’s called The Perfectionists and takes place in Washington, following five teenage girls.

Publication Date: October 7th, 2014

Synopsis: In Beacon Heights, Washington, five girls—Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker—know that you don’t have to be good to be perfect. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they realize that they all hate Nolan Hotchkiss, who’s done terrible things to each of them. They come up with the perfect way to kill him—a hypothetical murder, of course. It’s just a joke…until Nolan turns up dead, in exactly the way they planned. Only, they didn’t do it. And unless they find the real killer, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them. (from GoodReads)

My Thoughts: Considering this novel is filed under the genres “mystery”, “drama”, and “suspense”, it sounds somewhat to me like Shepard’s most popular series, Pretty Little Liars. Will I read it? Of course. The synopsis sounds intriguing. How was Nolan killed in exactly the way they joked about? I heard this is supposed to be a series of only two books, but considering how Pretty Little Liars turned out, I have a feeling it may turn in to much more.

What do you think about Shepard’s new series?
