I really want to read these books! They have such a loyal following that I know that it must be great!

Hi Linds! :) Thank you for stopping by. Oh, not so long ago I read the first 3 books and loved them. I was really surprised as I went into the books trying to not let the hype over do it and me be let down because it didn't live up to it. And I was really curious what everyone loved about them. And I was so surprised that they were all that the hype said and really happy with them. Loved them. :) I do hope you get a chance to try them out.

I recently read through the whole series, except for the latest book. They are very addictive. What's interesting is that I enjoyed each story more than the last but I found myself liking the characters less and less in each book. Kind of strange. But I had fun reading through them all.

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Simcha - wow. I'm surprised you found yourself not liking the characters as the series went on. Interesting. :) But I have to say the story and the world are very neat here. Hm. That is interesting to learn. I do see the characters being a little childish, but they are young too so I've excused it. Neat to hear. Thank you!

Melissa (Books&Things) - lol. I do love these books.... he he. You would love these as well. ;) Hope you get to read it.

Ooh, secretive stuff! I heard great things about this series, I totally have to read it.

What happened to Shadow's Lure though? That's a review I'm dying for!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Nikola - Hi! :) Thank you for stopping by. Oh, I've been loving this series with a few friends I've been reading it with. And Shadow's Lure! I'm loving it! :) It's one of the books I want to finish this week/weekend. I stopped to pick up with this one for a chat on Friday with friends. But I can't wait to get back to Shadow's Lure. :) I'm hoping (if all works out right) to finish it this weekend and review it next week. :) thank you!

Most reviewers I've seen seem to think this series superior to Infernal Devices. What do you think?

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

StephanieD - You know I'm not sure. I haven't read the Infernal Devices yet. I do have the first book here and can't wait to get to it, but haven't yet. I do hope so soon. :) Have you read them yet?
