Cassandra Clare shares CLOCKWORK PRINCESS playlist

Clockwork Princess We are just over 100 days away from the highly-anticipated release of CLOCKWORK PRINCESS, the conclusion to the bestselling THE INFERNAL DEVICES, and the wait is agonizing. Cassandra Clare made the wait a tad more bearable when she shared her playlist for CLOCKWORK PRINCESS (in no particular order). Check it out!

Libertines: Music When the Lights Go Out Is it cruel or kind Not to speak my mind And to lie to you Rather than hurt you? And alarm bells ring When you say your heart still sings  When you’re with me Oh won’t you please forgive me  Snow Patrol: If There’s A Rocket Tie Me To It And I knew the beat since it matched your own beat I still remember it from our chest to chest and feet to feet A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry A pulse your pulse, it’s the only thing I can remember I break you don’t, I was always set to self destruct though The fire the fire, it cracks and barks like primal music. Bright Eyes: Perfect Sonnet Lately I’ve been wishing I had only one desire Something that would make me never want another Something that would make it so that nothing matters All would be clear then

Foster the People: I Would Do Anything for You

Every day is a battle I face
Strange life I live 
But it’s what you’ve decided
I give it all into your hands
Do what you will with me 
And I’ll I smile when you speak
Remember all those times 
I was hoping for something?
And shaking my head 
From all that I’ve done
But you never left me

Elliot Smith: Alameda

Thinking about your friends
How you maintain all them in a constant state of suspense
For your own protection over their affection
Nobody broke your heart
You broke your own because you can’t finish what you start

Cake: Love You Madly
I don’t want to hold back
I don’t want to slip down
I don’t want to think back to the one thing that I know I 
Should have done

I don’t want to doubt you
Know everything about you
I don’t want to sit across the table from you 
Wishing I could runLeft and Leaving by The Weakerthans

My city’s still breathing (but barely it’s true)

Through buildings gone missing like teeth

The sidewalks are watching me think about you

Sparkled with broken glass

I’m back with scars to show

Back with the streets I know

Will never take me anywhere but here

Destiny by Zero 7

The journey’s long, and I feel so bad.
I’m thinking back to the last day we had
Old moon fades in to the new
Soon I know I’ll be back with you
I’m nearly with you, I’m nearly with you.

When I’m weak, I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart, we are each other’s 

Exit Wounds: The Script

And it hurts so bad
That I search my skin
For the entry point
When love went in
And ricocheted 
And bounced around
And left a hole when you walked out 
Grizzly Bear, Knife
I want you to know
When I look in your eyes
With every blow
Comes another lie
Block Party: I Still Remember
And I can see our days are becoming nights.
I could feel your heartbeat across the grass.
We should have run.
I would go with you anywhere.
I should have kissed you by the water

You should have asked me for it
I would have been brave
You should have asked me for it
How could I say no? 


Wraith Pinned to the Mist by Of Montreal

Maybe I’ll never die,

I’ll just keep growing younger with you,

And you’ll grow younger, too.

Now it seems too lovely to be true

But I know the best things always do.

All the Rowboats: Regina Spektor

But the most special are the most lonely,
God, I pity the violins

The Reeling: Passion Pit

And all at once i feel this, oh how it clings to me
it reels and calls me towards it, confounding destiny
and i can feel the madness inch by inch
the more i run the more i am convinced
a color all these like the branches glimpse
just like the saddle in the foggy mist

Yo La Tengo: Tears are In Your Eyes

Although you don’t believe me, you are strong
Darkness always turns into the dawn
And you won’t even remember this for long
When it ends all right

Ocean Breathes Salty: Modest Mouse

Your body may be gone, I’m gonna carry you in.
In my head, in my heart, in my soul.
And maybe we’ll get lucky and we’ll both live again.
Well I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.  

Wishing Well: Airborne Toxic Event

So you stand on the corner
Where the angels sit
And you think to yourself,
“This is it, this is it,
This is all that I have
This is all ll I can stand

Casimir Pulaski Day: Sufjan Stevens

In the morning in the winter shade
On the first of March, on the holiday
I thought I saw you breathing

All the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications when I see His face
In the morning in the window

All the glory when He took our place
But He took my shoulders and He shook my face
And He takes and He takes and He takes.

    This is the Clockwork Prone playlist not the Clockwork Princess.

    Foster the People: I Would Do Anything for You AND Elliot Smith: Alameda, sort of suggest that Tessa will end up with Jem, and Ocean Breathes Salty: Modest Mouse says that someone will die (we all knew SOMEONE would die, but none of us are sure who.)

    Whatever happens in this book, its all a blur to me, all I care about (mostly) is that Will and Tessa go together because if there is one thing I CAN’T stand in a book is that the guy get his heart broken. I have this opinion that, in books, the main FEMALE protagonist hurts (emotionally) the main MALE protagonist (or another male) WAYYYYYYYY more then vice versa. BUT that’s just my opinion.

      Why can’t a guy get his heart broken? When a guy character gets his heart broken, it only makes me respect him more because we get to see a more vulnerable side to the character. And just to point out, if Will and Tessa get together, Jem’s heart will be broken, too.. I like a guy who isn’t afraid to cry over a girl.

        We already saw a vulnerable side of Will. He went to Magnus so he could find the demon and get his curse lifted so he could be with Tessa. Plus Jem is going to die anyway from the demon poison

    ^When^ he went to…

    I second writergirl98’s statement i like it when a guy isn’t afraid to show the true extent of his emotions.
