while I wait to hear from HJ,
I dove into Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare.
It certainly is "not what I expected" not that I even knew what it was about. When I say "not what I expected" it refers to my perceptions about "Young Adult" books.
I also am getting the feeling the storyline is "not my cup of tea". Which leads me to the question...
"Do you read the summaries & reviews (including the plot line) about a book BEFORE you decide to read it? or do you just dive in because you vaguely heard it was good?
