Second I have a confession to make. I haven't read this series. Don't throw anything at me. I did read enough of the first book to know that I'm going to enjoy it. I seem to have good luck that way so I do plan on reading the series. I just need three more books. Yes I have the books and I do have the new box sets with the new covers on my Wishlist that I'm hoping a book fairy will buy me. Just don't buy them at the store. I almost had a heart attack when I turned over the box set for the Infernal Devices and saw it cost $41.99. Holy crap that's a lot of money for three books. I'm kind of swimming in books to review but I do hope to slip in this series because I don't want to feel like the books I'm reviewing are homework since that would suck and I didn't like assigned reading although I've always been a reader. Does that even make sense?
So the only thing I knew was the term Shadowhunters and that it was supernatural with the creatures and I knew some of the names like Clary, Simon, and Jace. I'm not totally clueless. I have to say that I enjoyed it. I'm really liking Clary but damn talk about having a Buffy birthday. I think Mom should have sat her down before serious shit went down so poor Clary isn't stuck wondering what in the hell to do now that these weirdos stole her mother who seemed to put herself in a magical coma which reminds me of a character from the Creepy Hollow series by Rachel Morgan. Check it out. It is a great series. I kinda think that Luke knew she was there and just lied to keep those suit guys that are bad news clueless but I could be wrong. He just looked over like he knew she was hiding behind the stairs. I'd be wigging out too if I went out to celebrate my birthday and weird shit started happening.
Okay me actually going out for my birthday would be weird but I'm talking about Clary. I really like Simon too. I do like those cool sword thingies that turn into swords and help deglamorize them. At least Simon knows she isn't crazy. I think the blonde guy is Jace and he's kind of a douche. Give the girl a break. She's new to this insanity that is normal for you. It might just be me but Clary and Simon kinda remind me of Xander and Willow. Just me? I don't know how this compares to the book but so far I'm enjoying it much more than that other show. Here's my post about it where I gripe. Apparently if you say something on Twitter where you're limited people think you're one of those people that expect everything to be the same which isn't true for me. I'm cool with changes although I will admit that this applies to shows while movies should remain faithful to the book. So instead of getting pissed off I ignored the two people and just wrote that post instead.
I have no idea what the Mortal Cup is. It doesn't sound very special unless it turns immortals into mortals which would make killing easier I guess if you misplace your thingie. Sorry but I don't know what that thing is called but I do know that I want one. I do have a Angelic Rune necklace. Yes I'm a little strange but I love bookish jewelry and well it was a gift. I get the feeling that Valentine was Joss's boyfriend or something since he seems to have some major feels for her. I'm just going with the shortened version of the name since I'm unsure of the spelling. Could he be Clary's dad? No don't tell me. There are very eager to get their hands on it and Joss doesn't want that to happen. Maybe Clary is the Mortal Cup. I really have no clue. I'm lucky I learned some of the names. Sure Isabelle dresses skanky but I think I might like her and she was probably doing that to lure in beasties to kill in that club. Tonight I plan on watching at least another episode of this show in an attempt to catch up. I just wish I got paid every time they mention the new name which I find totally lame. It makes ABC look bad to me since it's like they want to not be associated with it and oh crap I almost sense a slew of reality shows coming. Like we need more of those although I will admit to watching a few.
