Also, super excited about Head Rush, Clockwork Prince and Shaedes of Gray. What books are on your must-buy list for December?

    Clockwork prince is the one that’s at the top of my wishlist, but I’m also very excited for Touch of Power and Torn by Cat Clarke (YA, Dec 22nd) 🙂

    Head Rush is on that list of ‘if the world ends before I read this book I’m going to be super pissed off’.
    Also looking forward to Clockwork Prince.

  4. DeAnna says:

    Shadow Heir…crossing my fingers for Dorian!

  5. Carol says:

    I just finished Clockwork Prince and was SOBBING at the end. I haven’t cried like that since Dmitri turned Stigoi! It might just be me, but I think the Infernal Devices series is better than the Mortal Instruments series. Now, I’m about to start Head Rush.

      I know – me too. I love Will. His sense of humor is close to my own;) But it did leave me excited wanting to know what is going to happen next.

    Read Clockwork Prince twice in one week. I can’t seem to get enough of Wil. Loved it and dying for the next!
