First she invades my music...

I should just hole myself up in solitary confinement or something. This woman is EVERYWHERE. I just bought the third book in the Immortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, City of Glass. And what's on the front of it? A QUOTE FROM SMEYER. A stupid one at that.

She says:
"The Mortal Instruments series is a story I would love to live in. Beautiful!"

EXCUSE ME WHILE I GO BARF AT HER 12 YEAR OLD THOUGHT PROCESS.

And it gets worse.


The New York Post, February 7, 2009

"Like “Twilight,” vampires and werewolves populate The Mortal Instruments’s fantasy world, but the trilogy - which wraps up with the March 24 release of “City of Glass” - is chiefly concerned with more heavenly matters: the nephilim, humans with angel blood in their veins. The series follows 15-year-old Brooklyn girl Clary Fray’s whirlwind introduction to the world of Shadowhunters, nephilim warriors who protect oblivious humans from dangers presented by vamps, werewolves and other kinds of baddies. If you thought that human Bella and vampire Edward’s relationship was fraught with issues, imagine how much more traumatic it is for Clary to find out that the guy she’s in love with might just be..."


Has anyone else ever read this series? It's FABULOUS and kicks the crap out of Twilight. It makes me SO upset to see it being compared to Twilight.

I recently got ahold of the M.I triology. I'm only a little more than halfway through the first one, so anything I say here is just my reaction of it so far.

In my opinion, while it's not the best series in the world--C.C overkills similes (some of which make no sense), tells instead of shows way too much, has a few too many OOC moments, and some chapters that derail too much from the actual plot--it's still better than SMeyer.

And yeah, I saw that quote on the third cover. Whether it's a sign the last book is bad or not, I'll have to wait and see.



[[...Guilty pleasure, but Magnus Bane is pretty cool. Alec, too. <:3]]
Yeah, Magnus Bane is pretty much the entire reason as to why I like the series.
