With The Twilight Saga coming to an end, everyone is eager to dub the latest popular Young Adult books the next Twilight–or the Next Big Thing to rock Hollywood.

VH1 has named THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS one of 20 things to fill one’s Twilight void:

The Mortal Instrumentsthe novels by Cassandra Clare and its upcoming first movie, City of Bones. Just as human Bella transforms herself from a pawn in the supernatural world to an integral part of her family’s war against evil forces, Clary Fray goes from being a helpless girl to a powerful and unique hero of the demon-fighting Shadowhunters. We can’t wait to see how Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins will bring the books to life in the movie, out next August.

Head over to VH1 to check out the full list

THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES hits theaters on Aug. 23, 2013.

    awesome! itoo cant wait and I’m happy that tmi and hunger games and possibly beautiful creatures will be on of the great things to look forward too after twilight is done. I love the twiligh saga and books but I love mortal instruments and hunger games better

  2. I’m not sure how I feel about this. I never quite cared for Twilight, and I won’t get into why because I don’t want to offend any of the fans. I will just say that I think Mortal Instruments is a much more well written and thoughtful series. The only thing in common the two series have in common is that there are vampires and werewolves in both, but TMI has more than just vampires and werewolves and they are not the main creatures. The main creatures are shadow hunters who hunt demons, and they actually fight. Romance plays a big role in the series, but it’s not what the entire series is about.

  3. TMI has so much more going for it than Twlight it is laughable. The books are so intriging, so interesting, so interwoven with so much thought. You have to read them all and then also read infernal Devices. You could sit and dissect them and have hours of thought and conversation. And this is coming from a senior who was recommeded to them by a YA and so glad I was.

  4. I agree. I think Twilight was ok, but The Mortal Instruments is sooooo much better in every way. I read the Twilight series twice, but I am on my 8th time for TMI and no where near to stopping 🙂 Every time I read it I find little things that I didn’t remember and it is very rewarding and exciting re-reading everything. Thanks Cassie for such fantastic, fabulous books ❤ ❤ ❤

  5. I dont think it is nessacary to fill a “void”. TMI is a fandom unto itself. If anything Harry Potter and Twilight opened up the fantasy genre for amazing franchise oppurtunities. TMI will be it’s own brand of AWESOME!

  6. Yup! I agree with all of you…Yet the twilight books suck themselves dry of blood! I love tmi and can’t even get past ch. 1 page 1 of book one in twilight. the killed it but the movies were ok. Anyone looking foreword to the trailer?
    XD Rawr!

    I am so angry, these books are my life, and, if you excuse me, the Twilight movies were crud. There is no such this as “Team Jace” or “Team Simon,” honestly I am amazed that people are as stupid as calling themselves “Twihearts” or whatever. Get a grip. The TMI series stands alone, and whoever thinks that a strong character like Clary could be even compared to stupid Bella is sorely mistaken. I have read the Twilight series twice, and every time Bella opened her mouth I cringed. Clary, on the other hand, belongs to a series that I would love to read and reread if I could, Clary is a wonderfully crafted character, and, unlike when Bella does something stupid, Clary has the sense to think twice, or make a split second decision based on love she KNOWS about, and not go and try to force herself upon someone she knows nothing about. (Like Bella.) I am not saying that Stephanie Meyer is a bad author, she just, isn’t as good as Cassandra Clare. Also, as a note to you “Twilight Fans” this is not your series, so back off, “Team Jace” does not exist and neither does “Team Simon.” Simon becomes a vampire and dates Isabelle, Clary is not Jace’s sister and they get together, deal with it. I don’t care if it makes you popular. You may have ruined Twilight for many people, but you are NOT ruining this for me.
    There are no such things as “Shadowhunterheart” or whatever “clever” name you are trying to make up for the movie. If you are a true fan of the Mortal Instruments and of the Infernal Devices, you can suspend your wit for a moment, sit down, shut up, and actually read the books and think before you open your pie hole. The world needs a break from your stupidity for a moment.
    Thank you to all you TRUE TMI fans.

  8. And I think that what the fans are still putting out the same amount of dollars but it’s just going in a lot of effort and patience to get to toby keith at jiffy lube live on a weeknight.
