As a member of Crowdtap I was able to join the The Mortal Instruments Shadowhunters Book Club Party. We had a really fun afternoon talking about the book and chatting about the upcoming movie. Have you heard about this riveting book and the upcoming movie yet?  It is premiering in theatres August 22! Well, keep reading either are going to be totally into the book AND the movie...guaranteed.
City of Bones is the first book in the series.  Fiftenn year old Clary Fray is the heroine. Anyone 15-100 will enjoy this series. The Shadowhunters wage an epic fight for the survival of the humans against demons. Outside a night club in New York City, Clary Fray witnesses the Shadowhunters Jace Wayland kill what appears to be a wild teenage boy outside a night club in NYC.  When the boy is dying Clary realizes that he is not quite as human as he initially seemed. Clary is soon drawn deeper into the mystery involving the fight against demons. Her mother disappears the next day and Clary herself is almost killed by a creature that she realize is as demonic as the teenage boy killed by Jace.

Clary holds secrets that are later revealed that explains why Clary attracts the attention of the demons and also why she has the ability to see the Shadowhunters. Clary joins forces with the half-angel warriors Shadowhunters and immerses herself into Downworld, an almost parallel New York that is filled with demons, including vampires, werewolves and warlocks.
I was excited to recently host a The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Book Club Party with a group of my reading fanatic friends. We had a fantastic time.  What isn't fun about some good food, good books and good friends?  I chilled some nice wines and popped a few good ales in the refrigerator. I baked up some brownies and angel food cake and a few other tidbits to snack on while we chatted too.  I set up a Spotify playlist with great funky background music from the movie trailer like Radiohead's  “All I Need,” and Jack Trammel's “Echelon" to set the mood.  We talked about freaky stuff from the movie and book like if any of us have ever felt like we can see things like Clary can.  We debated the possibility of hidden worlds and got ourselves all wigged out thinking about it.  Paola told a really eerie ghost story from her days at Syracuse that really freaked us out.   That got Lynn remembering a weird story about Indian Lake up in the Adirondacks.  She totally believed she saw a ghost out on the lake!  It was fun to chat about the book and movie...we are planning on going as a group to see the premiere on August 21 too so that should be a lot of fun.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones premiers in theaters August 21, 2013. Hey, don't forget, you can join me as a member of Crowdtap and get great opportunities like this as well!
