In the spirit of St. Patrick’s day, the girls and I thought it would be fun to put on a little mini-series of posts. Basically, we are here to answer one very pressing question: if you knew that the Leprechaun at the end of the rainbow was holding one book: ARC, published, special edition, signed, different language, and you had to fight him for it. What book would that be?
Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
For as long as Lucie Herondale can remember, the Herondale family manor has adjourned the manor of the Blackthorns.
It’s too bad that Tatiana Blackthorn, the matriarch of the family, has always been, as her father Will Herondale says, “mad as a mouse trapped in a teapot.” Since the day that her father Benedict murdered Tatiana’s husband, and was killed in turn by a group of Shadowhunters that included both her brothers, Tatiana has nursed a burning grudge against the London Institute and all its inhabitants, especially Will, Tessa and their children: Lucie and her brother, James (taken from Goodreads.com)
Why I want it:
I think that synopsis should speak for itself, but OMIGOSH. I NEED. Cassandra Clare is one world building mastermind, and dare I say: I loved The Infernal Devices Series more than Mortal Instruments. The time period and the characters just felt so much cozier than modern day New York. My favorite trio – just shy of Harry, Ron, and Hermione – are Will, Jem, and Tessa. Now you’re telling me I can have another trilogy in there world?? Yes. Just yes. I consistently wonder if Clare will be forever writing different spin off series from her initial world, and to be honest I almost hope she does. I cannot think of a single YA author who has done quite as many spin off series as her, particularly a spin off series that has been as successful. Though the TV show and movie reboots were disappointing, the books remain on the top of my favorite and most anticipated lists.
How I would fight for it:
Now, I’m battling a bookish Leprechaun here, I obviously need a weapon. I think that my weapon of choice would be a glass beer pint. Fitting for an Irish men, and maybe he would just be willing to trade! If not, I can always block flying gold coins and hurled insults with that pint. Even save a few sips of water in that thing!
So, what do you think??
