I had always heard that Cassandra Clare’s books were amazing and I just never knew which one to start with. My friend was like read Clockwork Angel; so I bought it and fell in love. I ordered Clockwork Prince 3 days later. I never thought that I could fall in love with a series as much as I did with Divergent, TID proved me wrong.
Clockwork Princess broke my heart!!! I finished it last night and my heart is in a million pieces. Honestly I am not a big fan of Will’s but his love letter made me fall in love with him. I am going to include his letter below.
Tess, Tess, Tessa,
Was there ever a more beautiful sound than your name? To speak it aloud makes my heart ring like a bell. Strange to imagine that, isn’t it– a heart ringing? But ringing in my chest and the sound shivers down my veins and splinters my bones with joy.
Why have I written these words in this book? Because of you. You taught me to love this book, where I had scorned it. When I read it for the second time, with an open mind and heart, I felt the most complete despair and envy of Sydney Carton–yes, Sydney, for even if he had no hope that the woman he loved would love him, at least he could tell her of his love. At least he could do something to prove his passion, even if that thing was to die.
I would have chosen death for a chance to tell you the truth, Tessa, if I could have been assured that death would be my own. And that is why I envied Sydney, for he was free. And now at last I am free, and I can finally tell you, without fear of danger to you, all that I feel in my heart.
You are not the last to dream of my soul. You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.
Will hope at last,
Now can we take a minute to appreciate this love letter? ❤ I bought City of Bones, and City of Ashes today 🙂 Hopefully my heart mends haha.
