Waiting on Wednesday.

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1) by Cassandra Clare

August 31st 2010 by Margaret K. McElderry

From Goodreads- Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: Jem, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

I'm sure that a lot of people are waiting for this one. I cannot wait to read it. I loved the TMI series. It's the only series I fully own :)


Random Update  

Posted by: Karla

I'm sorry I haven't been posting reviews and updating very often. I haven't been able to read a lot since it's coming down to the last week of school and I've been having to read Lord of the Flies. Hopefully I get to read more this week and those following since I won't be in school. I am starting and continuing White Cat and A Clockwork Orange. This summer has a lot of work. I already went to my AP US History Mandatory meeting and I know my summer assignment and Monday I have AP Language/English meeting and I will get my summer assignment. I'm also a part of Leo Club and we have a new...person, I don't know what to call him, we are going to be doing more service projects over the summer:) I like Leo Club, I'll miss Mrs.Smith. This summer will be busy but nothing will keep me from reading the YA books I love and look forward to, which are A LOT :).
I promise to have more soon. Have an amazingly fantastic day :)

So I know this really has nothing, kind of, to do with books and such but I feel so mad about it so I wanted to just vent about it. It's kind of random but hence the name Karla's Randomness :)

So today during English, I don't know how we got the subject, the girl next to me says that her cousin who is younger than her, we're 16, is and has been doing drugs since she was 12. 12!! I know our town isn't great but that is still so young. I asked her if she has told her cousins parents and she said no because she didn't want to be a snitch. I find that very wrong and selfish. I am usually a calm person and I try to keep it that way but when I said the next thing I heard a harsh tone in my voice, I don't know if anyone else heard it though. I told her that it doesn't matter if she was a snitch. If I was in her position I would have talked to my cousin and told her parents. She replied by saying that she didn't want to be a snitch. I don't get it. Being a snitch shouldn't matter if someone close to you is putting themselves in danger. So I said, this is getting to the hole "I said...so then she said..." kind of thing isn't it?, if I were you and I hadn't told anyone and one day she gets hurt or overdoses I would blame it on me and not be able to live with myself seeing her parents in family in grief. She told me that her cousin would never overdose she isn't stupid like that. If she wasn't stupid then she wouldn't be doing drugs in the first place. That is when someone else in the group changed the subject by asking what kind of drugs her cousin did. I don't know if she knew I was getting angry or not but oh well.*sigh*
The conversation just aggravated me. It's not the first time a topic that aggravates me comes up during English. I've known this girl since elementary. I guess I believed a lot of the people I knew for a long time thought the way I thought on that subject and others like having sex as a teen, but I am terribly wrong. I just don't get it but that's a different subject. I would love to talk about it but this is already too long :). I kinda feel less jumbled up about it...thank you blogger :). What are your thoughts on drugs? What would you do?
