Waiting on Wednesday #40: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clare

Publication Date:
March 19, 2013

Margaret K. McElderry Books

Hardcover, 496 pages





In Clockwork Princess, Tessa and her companions travel all over the world as they race to stop the clockwork army before it’s too late. As Jem’s health worsens alarmingly and his friends search desperately for a cure, can Tessa choose between the two boys she loves—even if it means never seeing the other one again?


Ah, when this cover came out, I fell in love. So gorgeous. The whole Infernal Devices series has beautiful covers but this one has a wonderful feminine quality to it. And besides Tessa looks beautiful. I wonder what book she’s holding? I can’t believe we all have to wait until next year to get our hands on this one!

What’s your Waiting on Wednesday book this week?

    I’m dying to find out how this series ends! It’s funny because earlier this morning I was thinking about how if the release date didn’t get pushed back, we would be getting it in the next few weeks. EEK! Depressing, I know. Great pick! 🙂

    I’m simultaneously impatient for and scared of this book 😛 I know my heart will break no matter who Tessa chooses. I like the Infernal Devices better than TMI so I’m really really curious about the conclusion and how the two series tie into one another!

    Yes! I need this book! I am a bit scared of it though. It has the power to rip me to shreds. I fear that no matter what happens someone is going to get hurt. With the ID series Cassie has created the big papa of all love triangles. Awesome pick!

    Totally agree.. cover is so beautiful and remind me of victorian dresses <3
    Description doesn't sound very promising;. but like everyone says don't judge book by cover, the same goes with description xDD

    I love the cover so much! Although I’m not a fan of every single Cassandra Clare book, I do find much of them quite amazing. I have some catching up to do . . . I’ve only read Clockwork Angel, so I have to get started on Clockwork Prince sometime soon.

    I still have yet to read the entire series. I know, I know, I need to get to them, especially now that the movie is coming out! I do love the covers and I have most of them, but have yet to crack the spines. Thanks for reminding me I need to read them! New subscriber!
