and the award for Best of the Bunch for Febrauary 2012 is going to go to...


Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare!

I just love this series- steampunk-tastic!
This book was so emotional, and also completely action packed, filled with shocking twists and unexpected betrayals, and still infused with Cassandra Clare's trademark humour.
Love it- I can't wait for the next book in the series, I have no doubt it'll make me fall in love and break my heart all over again!

Honourable mentions also go to Cinder and Texas Gothic- fantastic books.

So which book gets your award? Add the link to your post below and visit some of the blogs taking part.

That's it! Good luck!

Sorry- this giveaway has now ended!


  1. I have Clockwork Angel on my bookshelf to be read soon! I've heard I'm probably not going to like it very much, though... Hopefully I'll love the books as much as you have!

  2. I'm glad you are carrying this on :) I've always enjoyed doing this meme :D

  3. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm really looking forward to reading Clockwork Prince at some stage :)

  4. I haven't read Clockwork Angel yet, but I really want to! I picked Texas Gothic funny is that?

  5. I have Clockwork Prince, I won it. And Texas Gothic and Cinder. I haven't read any of them. Since I don't have an extra day to post, I'll tell you my book for February would be Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley. I loved that book. Honorable Mentions would go to The Humming Room by Ellen Potter and Fairy Blues by JL Bryan.


    1. Ooh excellent- I have Graffiti Moon and I was planning to read it next, so I'm looking forward to it now!

  6. Hi Sally, great to see BOTB still going! Thanks for taking it on. This month I pick The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker. I'm not a fan of zombie stories but this one was just brilliant and more of a post-apoc than a zombie romp. I can't recommend it highly enough!

  7. I want to read both Clockwork Prince and Cinder. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  8. I've read the first book in this series as I'm a HUGE mortal instruments fanatic but I have yet to read this book. I'm umming and ahhing a little over if I should. I feel like Cassandra Clare basically pulled Jace, Clary and Simon out of modern day New York, changed their appearance and set them back down in a steampunk style old London. Maybe this book will make me feel otherwise

  9. Glad to see the meme continuing on! :D

    I loooooooved Clockwork Prince when I read it, too. I'm dreading what's to come in book three because, no matter what, there's going to be heartbreak one way or another. Eeep!

  10. I've just bought Clockwork Angel and started reading, so far I love what I'm reading simply enchanting. Hopefully I can received Clockwork Prince and continue the series.

  13. Wow, thanks for this amazing giveaway! Would love to read Clockwork Prince, Cassandra is an amazing writer! :)

    Best regards, Diana

  14. Ive read all her other books. I just didn't get around to this one. Thanks for the giveaway, it sounds awesome!
