Movie Mention: City of Bones

15 Nov

So…I’ve written about how much I LOVE Cassandra Clare’s YA series, The Mortal Instruments (read about what I said here), and a movie adaptation comes out August 23, 2013. So, yes, I know this is WAYYY early, but I couldn’t help myself.

The teaser trailer came out last night, and here it is.

Watch it! Maybe you’ll be just as excited as me or you’ll pick up City of Bones next time you’re at the store.

Happy reading, watching, writing, and entertaining!

Relax & Read: The Mortal Instruments

2 Oct

Reading can get expensive sometimes! Especially when you LOVE writing inside the books like I do, because you have to own every one of them. But, hey, at least you get to keep them forever! (I think I may need a bigger bookshelf.)

Anyway…I thought I’d excite everyone by reminding them that the paperback version of Cassandra Clare’s City of Fallen Angels is released today.

If you haven’t checked out The Mortal Instruments series, I highly recommend them! Cassandra Clare is one of my favorite YA authors, and The Mortal Instruments series is also in the process of filming (so, if you need more encouragement, there you go!)

The first novel. City of Bones, dives right into the world of Shadowhunters when Clary, a young teenage girl, witnesses a strange murder. She unknowingly has the Sight (unlike us mundanes), and Jace, a young but capable warrior, wants to know why. After Clary’s mother is unexplainably kidnapped, Jace takes Clary under his wing (or arm) and exposes her to the world of demon hunting. Not only are demons real, but it turns out that everything else is too: werewolves, vampires, angels, fairies, and irresistible boys. (Maybe Jace? Hint. Hint.)

If you like everything paranormal, this series is for you.
