The Mortal Instruments, City of Bones Movie vs. Book

city of bones cover City-of-Bones

I’m not going to lie, I was kind of sad after I left the movies. I absolutely loved everyone of these books, which you know if you read my posts, but I was bored by the movie. I think they did some great things like the way the demons looked and the way the institute looked. I especially appreciated that the werewolves truly turned into werewolves and not half men creatures. I wasn’t thrilled with who Magnus Bane was played by because I expected him to be so much more, so much…extra. Instead he was flat, and the only interesting thing he did was called Alec cute. Jace wasn’t cocky enough for me and he didn’t make his voice charismatic enough. I absolutely love Jamie Campbell Bower in Sweeny Todd, and like his performance in that so much more.

I like the way they brought the witch light to life, and how they made the Steeles different for different people.  I also really appreciate that I felt like they stuck to the book really well, and nothing was added, or anything significant was taken out. I like how they made the buildings change when looking past the glamour. They did great when it came to the special effects, and making it all come together.

I waited so long to see this movie, and was so excited for it, and now I can’t say that I’m excited for it at all. I still recommend that you see it of course, but I wouldn’t have high hopes. Am I going to go see the rest of the movies as they come out. Well yeah, of course, and I do believe that they’ll get better as they go. I’m not sure if the movie is still in theaters, It’s probably not, but if it is I recommend you seeing it to support this growing franchise!!

Until Next Time,

City of Glass (Mortal Instruments), Cassandra Clare

Well Cassandra Clare continues to amaze and entice me with the next Mortal Instruments book, City of Glass. If you haven’t read the first two books City of Bones and City of Ashes click on the titles to read my posts! Clary and Jace are no ordinary people and they’re starting to figure exactly what that means. After the fight between Valentine and his demonic army, and the Shadowhunters, everyone finally understands that Valentine truly is back, and he is plotting his ride to the top. In order to try and get things solved and accomplished Jace and the Lightwoods are heading to Alacante to try and get the Clave’s help. Clary of course wants to go as well because she has never seen Alacante, but Jace tries to do everything in his power to keep Clary from there for her own safety…well so he says.
Clary being Clary she finds away for her and Luke to get there so that she can find the way to save her mother.

Once there as usual when it comes to Clary and Jace, all hell breaks loose and it is up to those two to make everything right again. Along the way they find out more about themselves and about Valentine.

As usual I absolutely love this series!!! I cannot wait to read the next two books and the prequel series Infernal Devices. I honestly don’t have much else to say other than READ THESE BOOKS!!!

Until Next Time,

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments), Cassandra Clare

I found it! Another book series that makes me just as excited as I was for Twilight, Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games. This series Mortal Instruments, is the best of all of my worlds. It has the fantastical, like werewolves, vampires, demons, and faeries, it has action, and it also a little bit of romance, and its own love triangle. So, let me tell you a little bit about the first one.

It was a normal night for Clary Fray, she was going out on a Sunday night with her best friend Simon during the middle of the summer just like any other 15 year old girl would until everything changed.

She found herself in a completely different world, well she was still in New York, but she was seeing everything a little bit more clearly, things that she had never though existed. Demons, faeries, warlocks, the new word mundane, and everything that you once read in a story book and more just became true to her, along with the other things you read in books, like love, and fate.When Clary met Jace her world turned upside down and backwards, never expecting what could come next on their journey that brings them closer together in more ways than they could imagine. Clary finds out more about her past, and what’s going to happen to her in the future.

I haven’t found a book this interesting in a long time, not one that I literally want to keep reading all day long, well not since Twilight, The Hunger Games, and Harry Potter, so of course I recommend this whole entire series to those who are looking for an addictive read. I’m trying to make my posts shorter, so that I’m not giving away too much, so as always feel free to ask me anything. I cannot wait to read the rest of these books as they became a great cruise ship read to keep me distracted from everything. Until next time,
