Quote of the Week

"I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library."

So Good

If you've looked at my blog at all you know that I thoroughly enjoy the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.  When I found out that she was writing a prequel series (Infernal Devices) I was so excited.  The first book came out a couple of weeks ago and I have finally had the chance to read it!  It was every bit as good as the other series with some new twists and turns.  Not to mention some familiar characters.  This one, I believe, is still considered Urban Fantasy (don't ask me what the genre really entails because I couldn't tell you), but this one takes place in Victorian London.  This one also has just a teeny bit of Steampunk in it as well, but not too much.  I know many people may be put off by the words Fantasy and Steampunk, but really, these are good!  Now, I'm terribly excited for book two in this new prequel series.
