On Monday I got City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass and City of Fallen Angels off Amazon for $5 each. I've read the first 3 (three in 5 days, I guess I like them ) and will start on the 4th soon (I need a rest). They are written for a younger crowd, I'm used to way more sex in my fantasy, but the story and charaters are quite good.

But the last book was just teenage whining and pining, borderline obsessive; it made me think of Twilight.
Now that is ScArY!!

My "sci-fi nephew" and I really liked the movie Priest which the lead actress of City of Bones was in, so I expect I will like this one too.

I have to say I am tired of Transformer and GI Joe sequels. They are more like Toy Story every iteration.

We saw the movie this Friday.

We liked it.

The two leads, Lily Collins and a blond dude, straight out of a fantasy comic, were great.

The story was good overall but as an "occasional author" I found problems.

According to "Box Office" it has only done about $22 Mil in 2 weeks and against some pretty tepid competition coming when school is starting.

Still the sequel has already been ordered.

Again, the leads are great. Ms Collins has the potential to be a screen great! The dude might be more "typed" but in a fantasy type or horror type script just lends gravitas to the writing. Think along the lines of the elf in the Lord of the Rings except more so.

Well, "Mortal Instruments, The City of Bones" has had 3 weeks and has only make about 28 Million. That is disappointing. It took about $60 Million to make. Hopefully it will do better abroad.

The good news is that a sequel is already being made.

I do hope it catches on. (Maybe they need a "heartthrob Vampire" character.)

Up to about 30 Million. A big disappointment for me.
