Incoherent fan-girling by Caroline for bigbooklittlebook Dot Co Dot UK
I write this post with red rimmed, puffy eyes and a stuffy nose.
The cause of my condition? An opportunistic cold virus? An episode of early hay fever? Or perhaps i've been chopping onions?
The cause of my distress can be laid firmly at the feet (or more fittingly, the mind and pen) of Cassandra Clare.
Despite a strict embargo, I was lucky enough to received my preordered copy of Clockwork Princess three days early *puts amazon on the naughty step*.
At first the excitement grabbed me and I could see no wrong in this situation. After all, I had no intention of releasing spoilers and after months, and months, and months (lets not talk about the agony caused by the change in release date) of waiting I was finally able to dive back in to Victorian London and the lives of Will, Jem and Tess.
I can't even put in to words how much I Love this book. I've laughed and cried, been amazed and surprised, I've had my heart broken and re-built. I feel rung out. The Infernal Devices was already one of my favourite book series but the publication of Clockwork Princess, has cemented it's place in my mind and engraved the characters names on my heart *rubs chest*
Now, having finished this remarkable book, I see the flaw in my haste.
I. Have. So. Many. Feelings. and No One to talk to about them!
SO, I implore you, Please get hold of a copy, read it quickly, and get in touch, before I explode from all of the feels.
