Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book With My OTP

btt_otp

Hello, welcome back for the 4th week ok Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.

This week’s theme is “It’s getting a little chilly outside. Better cuddle up *wink wink*! Choose a book that your O.T.P. is in.“. For this week I chose a book that has ONE of my OTPs on it, because really, who has just one? So The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, because it’s the first time that Alec and Magnus are together. But seriously, one OTP?


Original Over:

I like this cover! It’s the one I own (one of them at least) and it’s pretty! It features Clary 😉 .

COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):

                                  

Look at that! A book that exists in Portugal AND Spain! I’m so proud! However, and don’t ask me why, Spain and Portugal inverted the covers, they used the original one from City of Bones (with Jace) for City of Ashes, and vice-versa.

FAVORITE COVER(s):

            

I’m in love with the new UK covers for The Mortal Instruments, so much so that I bought the whole series again with these covers 😀 . I also really like the new US cover and the Bulgarian one is strangely beautiful.

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

                                 polish   

The Polish and Italian are probably my least favorites, actually, they’re pretty bad, especially the Polish. I mean, who is that? is that supposed to be Izzy?

When Shadowhunters and Scottish hotties collide!

I’m fangirling like crazy right now!

So… Cassandra Clare just announced the narrator for the audiobook of Fiery Trial, the eighth novella of the Tales from Shadowhunter Academy, and it’s none other than Outlander (super) hottie Sam Heughan (JAMIE (FREAKING) FRASER from Outlander!!!)!!!

I’m thinking that this one is well worth the audiobook money…

Shadowhunters: New Stills

EW has just released 3 new stills from episodes 2 and 3 from the new Shadowhunters series. Check it out!

“In the above photo, taken in the second episode, Clary (Katherine McNamara) and Jace (Dominic Sherwood) are seen heading into the City of Bones — the sacred burial place of all Shadowhunters.”

“In the third episode, Jace, Clary, Alec (Matthew Daddario), and Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) mean business on a rescue mission.” – I’m guessing that they’re going to get Simon?!

“Lastly, here’s Clary and Jace crashing a warlock party — as you do.”

Shadowhunters: cast picture

Yesterday, after Kat’s Q&A on twitter, she released a photo of the main cast (minus Simon), in costume, probably in Magnus loft for his party. Check it out.

So what do you think? I read a lot of people complaining about Clary’s outfit, remember please, the dress belongs to Izzy, is supposed to be short and revealing. About Isabelle’s dress, I can totally see her using that, she uses some weird stuff throughout the books. About Magnus not being sparkly enough, we’re not having a proper look at him.

I think they all look great, Dom (Jace) is especially hot, as well as Matthew (Alec), as usual too.

Shadowhunters BTS Week 4 (cont.)

After I did the last post, they kept sharing pics… so here’s one more, and this one is HOT!

It’s episode 3 and they’re already hot and steamy!!!

Shadowhunters BTS Week 4

First look at the City of Bones:

Then Clary and Izzy bonding, I’m assuming that’s Isabelle’s room and wow, it’s SO Isabelle!!

And Alan being an awesome Valentine (I’m really liking the red runes!):

There was also an amazing exchange between Alan and Jon Cor, about the whole Hodge/Valentine conundrum:

And a very sweet family pic… they all look so cute:

Jon Cor onset showed us this video of Matthew practicing with his bow and arrow!

Hodge is in the house!

All the gang!!!

And also, Jade Hassouné had a mold of his ears made this week 🙂

A photo of shadowhunter training:

And the gang working out 🙂 , David Castro already in the mixed.

Shadowhunters: Jade Hassouné cast as Meliorn

Meliorn, the faerie knight who serves the Seelie Queen, has been cast. Jade Hassouné has been tapped for the role.

Meliorn’s first appearance is in City of Ashes, but similar to Camille, it has been announced that he too will have an appearance on the first season of Shadowhunters. Given that we don’t actually know how much this season will cover, it might actually make sense.

I have to admit that I’m pretty excited about this casting, though I can’t put my finger on why. But it was the first casting news that made me stop in the rain grinning uncontrollably into my smartphone.

Again, I don’t know why, but I always imagined Meliorn as a person of colour. It’s not how he’s described, at all, but I imagined him (always) with light brown skin, dreadlocks (no idea why) and green eyes… 😀 😀 😀

Meliorn proves super important throughout the series.

Can we take a moment to appreciate this cast diversity?! They took a wildly diverse book series, and made it even more diverse. Think at how the seats for the representatives from all four Downworlder races will be filled =D !!!!

Shadowhunters BTS Week 3 (3)

week3_2

After the first few days of the week, which were crazy in terms of tweets of BTS stuff, the rest of the week was a lot calmer. I suspect it will be calmer still from now on. There are more BTS pics, and some with Dom and Matt with their respective girlfriends, and all, but I just wanted to put the cast here. Enjoy.

Shadowhunters: Kaitlyn Leeb cast as Camille Belcourt

I have to be very honest here, I do not know where they’re going with this… it’s way too soon to be casting Camille, right? Given that the first time she’s even mention is in City of Glass, and then she only shows up in City of Fallen Angels… but hey, whatever, I’m sure they’ll make it work somehow.

camillebelcourt

The news of the day is that she was cast! Yes, Kaitlyn Leeb has been tapped to play the leader of the Vampire Clan, Camille Belcourt, also known as *SPOILER* the bi*** who broke Magnus heart so many years ago… (sorry, couldn’t help it… not a big fan of Camille). 

I am liking the casting though, she’s not at all as I imagined her, and yet there is something very Camille-like about her.

I read somewhere that they’re also casting Meliorn, so the Seelie Queen should follow soon, yeah?! I’m kind of excited about the fairies.
