  1. This is some exciting news. Glad everyone liked the Jamie and Lily as much as I did to get it the crown!

  2. WOO rated better than the 1D movie.That’s amazing 😀

  3. Tbh it’s a bit crap that it has to be classed as a guilty pleasure, like we’re meant to be ashamed of liking it 🙂

  4. The media has trashed this movie and teen genres as a whole. They trashed Twiligh too. Critics liked Hunger Games because of its liberal political slant and now they will love it because an Oscar winner is in it. Critics are snobs and tend to be and by nature very cynical. Twilight won respect because it made billions and that is the only way to be respected.
    The media is trashing young adults and devaluing the things that they care about. A movie ticket is like a vote. Drag your friends and get them hooked on MI too. I’m a mom and I love these books. I HAVE READ THEM ALL

    • Oh and by the way I’m a twihard too and I’m 21 and have no shame.

    • I am a senior, I was introduced to the books by a friend who was introduced by the daughter of one of her friends. We are all hooked. Can’t wait for City of Heavenly Fire, loved the Infernal Devices books just as much. So there critics!!!!

      Thank you for your post, I absolutely love how you worded your point. You are 100% correct. These books are so special to millions, and it is sad how young adults seem to be put down and stigmatized for having so much passion and enthusiasm for stories packed with character, emotion, and plot twists. Perhaps the people who put us down have not found anything that they are equally as passionate about, which is sad for them.

  5. I’m a 34 year old mum and I enjoyed the movie and I loved all the books. I cant wait to see city of ashes. I wish the critics would stop giving them such a hard time!!

  6. I learned about these books from seeing City of Bones at my bookstore and, of course, was attracted to the cover. I then went online and thought it sounded interesting so read them all. I also followed the casting process (always rooting for Jamie, whom I imagined as I read) and have enjoyed the movie immensely. Sure, there were some changes but there are to all sagas when translated to screen (except HP). I would have liked it to be taken more seriously. It will be interesting to see what Cassie does with the screenplays for TID. We have a great, enthusiastic quality cast, which is more than I can say for other so-called “teen” movies. One request: Let Jamie sing!

    I’m 28 years old and me and my two daughters age 8 and 5 are seeing it again today for the 6th time – we also talked both of my parents into coming as well. People need to relax and have some fun. The books are amazing and the movie is pretty damn awesome as well,. My husbands best friend saw the movie twice now and he loved it too and hes 35 years old. I hope they continue making the movies.

  9. YES. YES YES.

    Yay but I’m not ashamed to love it!

  11. I love the books and the movie … its great to hear this .. people who critized will know in the end that shadow hunter is a brilliant idea from cassie … she doesn’ t create main character from other creature like vampire or werewolf etc which already there before
    …. she creates shadowhunters genuine and fresh from her… ok those downworlders are in the stories but thats the fantasy world n they should be in it…
    And Harald Zwart was doing great he made the actors dedicated like he did with jayden in karate kid… the cgi awesome.. the wardrobe cool… i just loooveee it .. a must have collection
    Really looking forward to the next movie..
    Those who throw bad comments they don’t know yet.. lets see who laugh last

  12. I’m so happy!!! And I don’t like 1D but I understand that a lot of people do, so I’m so proud and impressed that the mortal instruments won!!!!!! And I do not feel guilty about being obsessed with the film!!!!

  13. And books

  14. Is anyone else devastated they are already pulling COB out of theaters?! At least by me they are, I’m the the Northeast region, USA, and it really upsets me because this is a quality film, not just for book fans. I feel like nobody is giving the movie enough of a chance!!

  15. Please make City Of Ashes!!! It is epic!

  16. City Of Ashes is epic! It could still be!
