Sentence of the Day: CLOCKWORK PRINCESS, p. 41

During a climactic action sequence involving a giant worm (Think Tremors, the movie), this sentence:

  • The worm’s thin, annulated tail was wrapped around his knees.

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER IF ONLY SELF HAD A SHORTCUT SO SHE DIDN’T HAVE TO KEEP TYPING OUT THE WORD SPOILER

Self tried to picture it: a worm with its tail wrapped around its knees. Would that mean Benedict Lightwood Iteration (i.e. Worm) is sitting on his or its bum, with its tail wrapped around itself? But hold on, how would a worm have knees?

Then, with awful pitching of her belly, self realizes, those are not the Worm’s own knees that its tail is wrapped around. Those are Will Herondale’s knees!

Oh no oh no oh no oh nooooo!  Self can’t, she can’t even!!!!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

    • OMG, this is the most fully realized world ever. Clare is genius at characters. Even though I’m so ANNOYED at Tessa right now, I believe in her character totally, as I believe in Will, Jem, Sophie, Charlotte, Henry, Cecily, the WORM, Magnus, the Lightfoot brothers, Mortmain.

      • But I’m now in the middle of CLOCKWORK PRINCESS, and I’m so annoyed by Jem. He wants to marry Tessa in the middle of the biggest battle of the Shadowhunters’ lives, he uses up a year’s supply of yin fen in eight weeks, he doesn’t trouble his head about Will AT ALL. I really find him so LAME. And Tessa, when Will stops you in the hallway and says, “I love you more than I have ever loved you before, and in an hour I will love you even more than that” — I mean, girl! How can she even!

      • Ha! I know what you mean. But I do think Clare did a good job showing us just how burned Tessa felt by Will’s earlier behavior. Now she doesn’t know how to handle him or whether some more honest emotions will get her burned again.
