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!"


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've checked out the first Mortal Instrutments book from the library only to lose interest after twenty pages due to the author's lack of writing ability. Instead I read through both Graceling and Eon:Dragoneye Reborn, both incredibly well written fantasy novels as opposed to Twilight and the Mortal Instrument books. That quote from Stephenie Meyers is one of the worst endorsements by any author then again some of Shannon Hale's books have become defiled by her endorsements as well. Hopefully newer editions of one of my favorite novels "Jane Eyre," will not be tainted with the words of Stephenie Meyers.
