By request of firekindlesdesires. When I first got this request, I actually hadn&#8217;t read any of the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare yet, but this was just the kickstart I needed to finally start reading my copy of Clockwork Angel and OMG BOOK IS LIKE CRACK CAN&#8217;T STOP. The request was for some Tessa and Jem art even though, as of right now, I&#8217;m intensely and wholly devoted to Will. Like, why isn&#8217;t this book called Clockwork Will? Jem&#8217;s such a cutie, though.

Anonymous asked: Do have a good reads? So we can see if you've read a book before we request something from it :)

I do have a Goodreads account! Even better, I’ve got a blog, and the archives there are pretty up to date. Neither covers my ENTIRE history of reading YA, but they’re a pretty good place to start.

Wesley Ayers from @veschwab&#8217;s The Archived and The Unbound, looking gorgeously guylinered in green by request of an anonymous who specifically requested guyliner. Oh, Wesley. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
(No, but seriously, if you aren&#8217;t reading this series, I recommend you rectify that)
