Okay, so, the title is a little misleading. I read the Infernal Devices a while back and just realized that although I LOVED them I never actually posted about them. They’re supposedly what happened before Clare’s more famous series, the Mortal Instruments. Here’s my issue with this. The first book I read this summer was City of Bones, because I thought I would like them after loving the Infernal Devices so much. Turns out I was wrong. This is probably going to sound really, really harsh, but I thought the Twilight Saga was better than City of Bones. (For the record, I am not a Twilight hater. It’s possible to like Twilight and Harry Potter and all that, for all the rivalry between the two. I actually thought Twilight was fine.) It’s just stupid. To be fair, I hate how Clare wrapped up the Infernal Devices in Clockwork Princess, but I still loved the trilogy. So there.
Read the Infernal Devices, but I under no circumstances would suggest the Mortal Instruments. (Why on Earth would you make siblings fall in love? It’s so morally wrong.)
