The Infernal Devices

31 - The Infernal Devices

Hello Everyone!

As you may have gathered from a few of my Instagram posts, I absolutely love to read! If you don’t follow me on instagram please click on the link and check it out.

I wanted to do this for when I finished the Maze Runner series but I didn’t feel as strong a connection to that series as I have to this one. The Infernal devices was a series that my friend told me about a while ago, after I had finished reading the Mortal Instruments. The characters in the Infernal Devices have found a special place in my heart, especially William Herondale. Although it usually is rare for the reader to feel attached to the main character in a book; Cassandra Clare (author) had managed to create that relatability and also compassionate anger toward William that gives that connection between the reader and protagonist.

A while ago now, I finished the Clockwork Princess – the last book in the series – and once it was over, I just sat in awe at how the series just seemed to capture me and draw me right into the book. It seriously felt like I was living with the characters every second of my day. I just couldn’t forget them, even when I was at school, Magnus Bane would make an appearance in my head and attempt to distract me from my work.

My favourite quote from this book was spoken by the Protagonist, Will Herondale (and features in the image above);

“Sometimes, when I have to do something I don’t want to do, I pretend I’m a character from a book. It’s easier to know what they would do.”

From the very beginning of the series I was able to relate to Tessa. I felt a greater connection to her when she expressed her love for books and the sadness of leaving them behind in the beginning really got to me as I would’ve felt the same way, even if I had been rescued from evil.

With the shared love for books between Tessa, Will and I. I was more apart of their journey than ever, getting the feeling that I was one with them and not just a reader looking in on a romance built on book recommendations, meaningful quotes and handwritten poems.
