In My Mailbox/Book Haul (3)

Hello all. I know I said I was on a break but I'm trying to figure something out. I won't say anything until I've done it. And Veronica threatened to kill my family if I didn't post. But anyway. In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by the lovable The Story Siren where you post up the books you either got in the mail, bought, traded, or got in the library for the week.

This week was a tad empty. I got one book which is still awesome. I still have the pile of books to be read and with college classes coming up on Tuesday, I'm going crazy trying to finish them. But enough of that, I'll figure something out as I go along. This Saturday, I went to Walmart to buy school supplies and I saw the one and only copy of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. It was actually hidden, someone thought they were smart. They are not.

Clockwork Angel

Magic is dangerous-but love is more dangerous still.

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability; the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by - and torn between - two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world . . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

Only book I got this week but I'm happy with it. I started around three in the morning after finishing Tyger Tyger today. Only finished the Prologue but it's already good and I can't wait to read the rest. Hopefully next week I'll buy some more books, even if it is textbooks.

Have you guys gotten any books this week?
