Book vs Movie: City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare #ThrowbackThurday #Books #ShadowHunters #YAReads #YABooks #Movies #BookBlogger

I'm going back to a throwback feature here, comparing what is a fantastic book to it's sub-par adaptation (still so disappointed). What makes it hurt even more is that we could have had a whole franchise of Shadowhunter movies had it not bombed so spectacularly!

The Whisper Man by Alex North “A fantastic thriller with rich characters, tons of suspense, and more than a few twists.” @writer_north @CeladonBooks #BookReview #Thriller #Books #BookBlogger

Here's another fabulous book I purchased as soon as it was released, that I'm ashamed to be reviewing just now (bad book blogger!), but my passing slump was relentless, not to mention my TBR is ginormous! Better late than never?

Series: The Folk of the Air, Book 3

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Fae

“Only out of his spilled blood can a great ruler rise. But not before what I have told you comes to pass,” (Baphen, Preface).
