I picked these two books for this posts current reads for two reasons. I chose Michael Jacksons’ Dancing the Dream because of his death anniversary coming up and I chose Clockwork Prince because my library finally got it in stock and I was able to check it out.
If you don’t know yet(which I doubt you do) I am a huge Michael Jackson fan. I am not going to go into history about this because I always get super emotional and off track when talking about Michael, and we don’t want tears(Or a snotty runny nose, ew!). I have been a fan all of my life but unfortunately became a fan of the man Michael in 2009.
I’m going to be brief about Clockwork Prince since I have just started reading it but let me tell you, Clockwork Angel is an amazing book and I’m glad I bought it. I’m excited to see what this next installment has in store for Will, Jem, and Tessa. In the last book Clockwork Angels, I didn’t really like Tessa until the last few chapters when I was showed how much heart and bravery she actually has. Will is my current favorite character, not saying that Jem isn’t. I adore Jem, he’s mysterious and sweet. Will on the other hand is mysterious and well, cold. It makes me wonder more about him than Jem. If you’re looking for a good book to read this summer, definitely check this series out!
Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices) by
*Summary from Amazon.com*
True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the enchanting second “steamy, steampunk drama” (Los Angeles Times) in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series—now with a gorgeous new cover, a map, a new foreword, and exclusive bonus content! Clockwork Prince is a Shadowhunters novel.
In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.
Dancing the Dream by Michael Jackson
Dancing the Dream was the second book written and released by Michael Jackson.
Its a book of poems and reflections written by Michael himself combined with many quality colour photos. As it says on the inside cover “one man’s hauntingly beautiful, provocatively personal view of the world around us and the universe within each of us. Whether his prose or poetry are focusing on creativity, the children of the world, or the plight of the noble elephant, Michael Jackson’s observations and concerns make us see that trust and love and faith are the foundation stones for a life well lived. Some people wonder how they can make the world a better place, while other people have dreams that are so powerful that they have a vision that can touch us all. Dancing The Dream was written by Michael Jackson, a man with a vision. Come experience the dream”.

I love this book because it’s full of inspiration, poems, and soul. Michael wasn’t talented just in the music area. He wrote all these stories, reflections, and poems to share with his fans. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed either. Every time I read this book or a poem from it, I am astonished at how talented he was in so many different areas of life. That’s one of the reasons I adore Michael so much. I do wish he wrote more books but I’m grateful we at least have this one! He does have three other books by the way.
I can’t pick a favorite piece from this book because I have so many but I am, for the sake of this post, going to give you a little bit of one of my favorites, Angels of Light.
It’s hard to see angels, although I’ve stared at their pictures for hours. Some people can see them without pictures, and they tell interesting tales.
You can pray to the angels and they will listen, but the best way to call them, I am told, is to laugh.

Happy Reading & delving into other worlds!
