Cassandra Clare Shares A Snippet from 'Lord of Shadows' #TheDarkArtifices

We have our first Lord of Shadows snippet!! In answering Lady Midnight questions from fans today, Cassie shared a snippet from Lord of Shadows, the next book in The Dark Artifices series! Check it out below: 
Kieran shook his head. “I cannot do it,” he said.
“Kier —“ Mark began angrily, but Kieran had his head down, like a beaten dog. His hair fell, sweat-tangled, into his face, and his shirt and the waist of his breeches were soaked in blood. “You’re bleeding again. I thought you said you were healing?”
“I thought I was,” Kieran said softly. “Mark, leave me here —“
A hand touched Mark’s shoulder. Cristina. She had put her knife away. She looked at him, levelly. “I’ll help you get him over the wall.”

Noooo, it can't end there! I need more of this snippet! I realize Lady Midnight was only released two weeks ago (today), but I can't wait for this book.

Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven't Talked About In A While / Top Ten Tuesday #54

Hello & welcome to this week's Top Ten Tuesday! This week's topic is Ten Books I Really Love But Haven't Talked About In A While. My previous Top Ten Tuesday post was, Ten Books On My Spring TBR List

I love this week's topic, and I enjoyed going through and selecting books I have loved, but haven't read in a long time or haven't talked a lot about (except of course for Clockwork Princess). As I've put this list together, I've realized how much I've missed reading these books. I can still point out everything I loved about these books. Now I'm thinking I need to put aside some new releases so I can re-read these all time favorites of mine.  Here's my list of books I Really Love, but Feel Like I Haven't Talked About In A While. 

  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore
  • Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
  • Heist Society by Ally Carter
  • Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  • Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
  • Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
  • Poison Study Maria V. Snyder 
  • Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rosi
  • The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
  • Firelight by Sophie Jordan 
  • Queen in Exile by Donna Hatch 
Wow, talk about walking down memory road. Some of these reads go back to 2010. I need to re-read these books soon. I don't even think I reviewed all of these titles on the blog. 

What are some of your favorite books you've not talked about in awhile?
