Shadowhunters: Posters

rs_1024x691-151120133053-1024.shadow-hunters-freeform-2.ch.1112015

Yesterday, the Shadowhunters poster was finally released, as well as the character posters you can see below. I have to say, these posters look good, but Kat McNamara still has something about her that doesn’t scream “Clary” to me… I don’t know… What to you guys think?

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

And it’s Tuesday again! The Top Ten Tuesday theme this week is “Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds“, which surprisingly was harder than I thought to come up with 10. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. So, without further ado…

Top Ten Tuesday

1. Cath – Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Cath is the ultimate book nerd, she not only loves to read, but she loves to live inside their world. And Cath reading to Levi is the cutest thing ever.

2. Celaena – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

The girl loves a good book, even more than she loves killing (I hope)!

“I can survive well enough on my own — if given the proper reading material.”

3. Dorian – Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

The second bookworm in this series is Prince Dorian. Come on, the Prince has a library in his room and it is said several times that he was born more of a reader than a fighter. And it’s so cute that he has books at the ready to send Celaena when she asks for books.

4 & 5. Tessa and Will – The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

These two are such bookworms. She spends all her time surrounded by books and he knows the books by heart.

“One must always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.”

6. Hermione Granger – Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

This one is mandatory. I bet not one single person is going to leave Hermione out of this list, am I right? Come on, at 11 the girl read the school manuals before even setting foot at the school.

7. Dante – Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Dante loves to read and shares his love for books with Aristotle. It’s also very cute.

8. Luke – The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

Luke has a bookstore, which is kind of cool. Also, he’s one of my favorite characters from the Shadowhunters chronicles :).

9. Elizabeth Bennet – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

True that Jane Austen tell us that for a woman to be accomplished she has to read and to all these other stuff, but Lizzie really did enjoy reading.

10. Catherine Morland – Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Other of Austen’s heroines that loved to spend a good deal of time with her nose in a book, especially if they were sordid and scandalous…

Shadowhunters adds Luke and Alec

They are on fire on the Shadowhunters work place thingy! Just a couple of days after announcing that Katherine McNamara will be playing Clary, today ABC Family has announced two more casting news.

Matthew Daddario was cast as Alec Lightwood, brother to Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) and Isaiah Mustafa will be taking the role of Luke Garroway, father figure to Clary, in love all his life with Jocelyn and, in the show, he’ll be a NYPD detective (apart from being the adorable werewolf and gorgeous leader of the pack, that we know he is).

I’m kind of excited about Isaiah Mustafa playing Luke, I mean, I never imagined him like that, specially with the blue eyes/brown hair description, but Isaiah is gorgeous and I think he could be AMAZING!!!! Full disclose, I have a HUGE crush on Luke’s character since the first book, I root for him, and Isaiah seems to have all the charisma necessary, so well done people!

About Matthew Daddario as Alec… well… the blue eyes man, it could make a huge difference… I mean, Alex HAS TO HAVE blue eyes and black hair, he just has to, it’s Magnus favorite combo. If only Matthew had his sister’s (Alexandra Daddario) eyes, he would be super perfect. As it is, I hope he wears contacts, other than that, I’m sure he’ll be great. I do hope they make sure that he has amazing chemistry with Magnus though.

City of Ashes: fav quote #4

City_of_Ashes

Jace to Luke, after picking a fight with his pack… teenagers… well, a teenager that just got shunned by the only mother he ever knew… so… yeah, maybe he’s not so bad! Poor Jace (and God damn it, Luke is the perfect man/wolf/dad)!

“I don’t want to be a man, I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can’t confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead.”

― Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes
