Tales to Tomes: Announcing the May Read!

I am so excited to announce the selection for our May Tales to Tomes Online Book Club discussion!!  You all spoke and the answer was overwhelmingly . . .

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Read the book and be sure to join in the book chat this month on Facebook, Twitter (using #tales2tomes), or the *NEW* option of the Goodreads Group!  And, don't hesitate to spread the word and share the group with your friends!

For those wondering what I meant by overwhelming, here is a quick glimpse at the numbers of the vote!


  1. Yeah! I've been holding off reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare because of this event. Glad it finally made it. :)

    I'll chat on GoodReads verses Twitter. I feel I can talk freely there. On Twitter, I'm scared of giving away too much of the plot.

  2. Oh dear! I think I totally missed the voting, but I've heard great things about this one. Quick question though, anyone want to weigh in on if this is a good place to start with Cassandra Clare's stuff? If I recall this one is a prequel to the other series - but would it be better to read them in the order they were written or is Clockwork Angel a good place to start?

  3. 365andMe ... I'm really excited for this one too! Can't wait to get my hands on it! Good point about Twitter! And, I'm loving the new group so far on GoodReads! Thanks for encouraging me on that one!! :)

    lisa :) ... Clare writes different sequels, but the sequels can stand alone. Clockwork Angel is the first in the Infernal Devices series. I think that the different series can be read out of order in my understanding. She describes them as companions. Does that help?

  4. Excellent! Thanks for the info. I have it on hold at my library so I'll actually get to read it this month! Just let me know as we go along if there's anything that makes more sense or is ultimately cooler with knowledge of the other series. Off to check out the GoodReads group!

  5. lisa :) ... I am so glad that you will be joining us this month and welcome to the GoodReads group!!! :)

  6. I just placed my hold at the library. I hope I get it in time! There are like 25 people ahead of me.

  7. Kristen M. ... Yeah!! I hope you get it too! I just got my copy today!!!!
