Kendall’s Favorites

By Cassandra Clare
I have been addicted to the Infernal Devices since they released Clockwork Angel. This book is the second of the series. In Clockwork Prince Tessa Grey has found a home with the shadowhunters. She has to decided between her longing for Will and her feelings for Jem. All the while, trying to find and destroy the Magister. Clockwork Prince is worth every second of reading. Every chapter brings a new surprise and twist. Tessa Gray has not only the problems of a shadowhunter but also the problems of a regular teenage girl, which I love. They remind us that she is normal while she is facing deadly challenges throughout the book. I had doubt about continuing the series but the sequel is worth every penny.

There is a lot of hype going on about the Hunger Games and I could not help but get sucked into it as well. In Mockingjay, the final installment of the Hunger Games, Katniss finally has to decide what she wants and needs to do. It was the perfect finish to a thrilling series. Just like the two books before it, it keeps you on your toes until the very end. You think you know what happens next and Suzanne Collins brings in a totally different view. Not only is Mockingjay one of the most innovative books I’ve ever read it is also very well written. Everything is written in a way that is easy to understand even though the story and its characters are so complex. I recommend reading this book and the first two is you haven’t already. They are well worth their praise.
