Do you like to see your favorite books become adapted for television or film? I tend to like to read the book before it gets put in production because my interpretation of the story is envisioned in my mind matches the adaptation. Some are hits and miss on how it comes across and some are pleasant surprises. What book did you enjoy that was made into a film/tv that you thought was just as you imagined?

This week focusing on the film version of City of Bones. I really enjoyed the film, liked the casting and had wished they would make the other books. I have watched some of the Shadowhunters tv series but have not finished them yet.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fifteen year old Clary Fray has always felt he didn’t quite fit in, that something was always missing in her life. Her closest friend Simon has always been by her side, but as he is about to reveal something important to her she finds herself seeing things that are not possible. Clary finds herself pulled into a life filled with everything imaginable from vampires to werewolves, Clary finds herself drawn to Shadowhunter Jace Wayden whose slick retorts are infuriating yet bring them closer together. Faced with a mountain of untruths about her past, Clary’s mother has been kidnapped and the only one who can save her is Clary with help from Jace and the other Shadowhunters, as well as Simon.

Brilliant read, I was pulled in quickly and not disappointed at all by the book.
