The World of Shadowhunters

Who here has read the YA fantasy fiction series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare?

Well I have. And I love it. I read the series way back when, and was thrilled when she decided to extend the trilogy to six books. She also has done The Infernal Devices which are seriously beautiful and she captures the Victorian Period so wonderfully.

I'm excited because of a few things:
  1. They are officially making The Mortal Instruments into a movie. The first movie will be called: City of Bones. I wasn't sure if they were actually going to do it...but they are. I love Lily Collins as Clary Fray. I just do. I still really don't know how I feel about Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace Wayland...Jace is one of my BIGGEST fictional crushes out there, and I really wanted Alex Pettyfer. But he declined and Jamie really wanted it...so we'll see how it goes. I just hope he gets more buff and doesn't look so...girly. Simon is a cutie, so I'm glad about that; Alec will be great (loved him in Air Bud); also not sure about Isabelle. I thought Megan Fox would've been perfect for the role, but like I said, we'll just see. Here is the main movie website HERE. If you're big fans, such as myself, you can get all the information there. Here is the first official photo of the main five: 
Simon, Jace, Clary, Alec, Isabelle

Cannot wait for it to come out in 2013!!

   2. Secondly, the cover for the last Infernal Devices finally came out...and it's..well, BEAUTIFUL:
Beautiful. 
I have nothing other to really write about, other than how much I love Cassandra Clare's writing. She has such a wonderful advice area for writers on her blog as well which I have found useful.

She is just so clever. We've seen vampires, werewolves, fairies, etc. yet she captured it in such a unique way that I really admire. Shadowhunters are so different and I really sometimes wish I could come up with something of that sort. I'm pretty sure my idea hasn't been seen yet for FW, but I don't know overall how unique it truly is. Not that I'm second guessing my work, just thinking out loud :)

I'm going to write tonight; trying to make time. Doing my best. 

Hope you're all doing well. Sorry for the quick post, just had to share my excitement!
