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?

Shadowhunters First Trailer

Halleluja people! Finally!!! After months of random behind the scenes photos, a few promos and a lot of teasing, Buzzfeed  revealed yesterday the first trailer for the new Shadowhunters series at ABC Family.

By the way, thank you Cátia, best thing ever to wake up at 4 a.m. and having this on my twitter notifications 😀 .

I like it! I think it looks cool!!! Sure, a few things will be different, Jocelyn sending Clary through a portal (?!) is a bit iffy, but hey, I can live with that.

The cast all looks great, and Dom sounds so Jace-like (yay!). My only tiny problem is with Kat and her Clary… I’m still not sure about her acting and this trailer did nothing to calm my nerves about that. Matthew Daddario and Emeraude though, look perfect as the Lightwoods. And Harry as Magnus too 😀 !

Did they make the seraph blades retractable or whatever? Isn’t that a bit weird?

I can’t wait for this show 😀 ! I know most of the cast (or all) has wrapped, so I think that the show is now all in post-production. January can’t come fast enough.

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?

Top Ten Tuesday: Hot Hot Hot!

Welcome to another Tuesday, which means another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is a FREEBIE! It might sound easy, but nope, not really! lol. After reading a few struggles on twitter about this week’s theme (this is partly your fault Jesse – go check out his post! 😛 ), and still suffering from a huge book hangover due to Ignite Me – where I totally blame the sexy scenes, I decided to make today’s theme: Hot and Steamy Scenes, whether it was a hot steamy kiss, something more or something considerably less… words can go a long way!

Top Ten Tuesday

Fair warning, the passages might be graphic! And there will be SPOILERS! If you are not comfortable with steamy scenes from some YA books, turn away! And if you haven’t read these books and don’t want to know anything, again, turn away!!! You have been warned! 😉


1. Warner & Juliette – Unravel Me

I mentioned above how I’m still suffering from a huge book hangover thanks to Ignite Me, right? Unravel Me is to be blamed as well. How else start this list, if not with the wonderful chapter 62 from Unravel Me? If you read the book, you know what I’m talking about… This WILL NOT be their only entry on this list…

2. Tamlin & Feyre – A Court of Thorns and Roses

This book is all kinds of hot. There are 3 scenes that I totally needed to fan myself to get over, and I’ll mention 2 of them on this list, but the first one is the hall scene…

3.  Warner & Juliette – Ignite Me

Let’s be honest, for the last 25% of the book they can’t keep their hands off each other, and it’s cute and hot and OMG…. but that moment!!! WOW! Does Tahereh Mafi know how to write sexy scenes or what?! I’m not going to put the whole scene here, because it’s amazing and you should READ IT! I know it almost by heart now, from the countless times that I read it…

4. Jace & Clary – City of Fallen Angels

Jace and Clary have some pretty steamy throughout the 6 books, a favorite of mine is the one outside the manor, yeah, when they still believe they’re brother and sister… moving on… my second favorite is in City of Fallen Angels, in the alley…

5. Tessa & Jem – Clockwork Prince

Let’s never ever forget that the first time that Tessa and Jem kissed, they almost slept together. It took Will a lot more to get there 😉 (but then poor Jem had to wait even longer). Still, this scene took my breath away, and I loved every second of it.

Clockwork Prince - Dirty Sexy Bedroom Scene (Cassandra Jean)

6. Shazi & Khalid – The Wrath & The Dawn

Shahrzad and Khalid’s first kiss is hot hot hot and epic. I’ll even mention the fact that this is their first truly intimate moment, even after they had slept together twice. It’s so so beautiful!

7. TAMLIN & FEYRE – A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES

Ok, so as I said before, Tamlin and Feyre have some hot scenes on this book, but the actual sex scene actually made me blush so much that I was truly aware that it shouldn’t be read on the train…

8. Laia & Elias – An Ember in the Ashes

I’ve said it before, I love Laia and Elias together, and I can’t wait for the next book, when they definitely have to spend some more time in each other’s company… Still, the one time they were all alone, it was pretty hot, right?

9. Will & Tessa – Clockwork Prince

Clockwork Prince was a busy book for Tessa! She rolled around in bed with Jem, and then had a very steamy make out session with Will, on the Lightwood’s balcony in the middle of a party, under the effect of some mood altering drugs… it was still a pretty great scene!

10. Magnus & Alec – The Course of True Love (and First Dates)

There are so many damn couples in the Shadowhunter’s world, that it’s hard to move away from it. I love Magnus and Alec, they’re my favorite couple in The Mortal Instruments, and their first date is just hilarious! But it’s also super sweet and you should totally read it, if you haven’t already. (I mean, Alec falls down the stairs…)

Special Mention – Tessa & Jem  – After the Bridge

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this story, first because it’s Jem and Tessa, secondly, because the whole story is pretty hot, steamy and emotional. Have you read After the Bridge? If not, you can find it here. Let’s just say that while Will always had the fame, Jem was a complete surprise…

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…

Most Likely To… Book Tag

Hey people, welcome to another book tag! Becca @Becca and Books created this fun tag and I loved it so much that I decided to give it a go.

mostlikelyto

So, this is how it works:

  1. Put 18 book characters into a jar and shake it up.
  2. Have the first three most likely to… categories ready. Pick three names from the jar and apply them to the first three categories (I’ll be stealing categories from people!).
  3. Keep going until you have none left!

round 1

I think this one is pretty straight forward (they even ended up in the right order!). I think Katniss would be the most likely to kill someone, given that she has killed a lot of people before.

Levi would be the one to get married, he’s such a romantic that I don’t even know if he and Cath would wait until they finished college.

Magnus Bane having a one night stand with a person he hates?! Sure, I can totally see that!


round 2

OHHHH!!! Let’s start with the easy one, Jace would totally get in a bar fight. He already has, right?

Hermione would totally fall in love with her best-friend, at least with one of them, which actually happened: Ron + Hermione = OTP!

And Tamlin would be the one to have kids super young. Now, given that he’s Fae and immortal and stuff, he still IS super young, so he’s totally on time for this one.


round 3

Jesus, this one is a bit weird… So, Jem would probably become a teacher, he’s super patient and smart and gentle, so yeah, that’s what he would do.

Celaena would probably write a book, a memoir, about her time as an assassin. I would totally read that (oh wait, I am reading that… The Assassin’s Blade! 😉 )

Dorian would so cry in the movies, and he wouldn’t even feel embarrassed about it.


round 4

Poor Cath, I can’t see her doing any of this stuff… so I guess she could get a Simon and Baze tattoo?!

Feyre would become a World Leader, at least a court leader, which she will probably be if she marries Tamlin. She would also be that of she chooses Rhys, so really, it’s in her future one way or the other.

Izzy could totally become an actress. I can so see it!


round 5

Juliette IS already a superhero, she has a freaking superpower! So that’s settled, Juliette will become a superhero.

Lucien would totally tweet every event in his life, like “oh, gross! Tamlin and Feyre are getting all steamy again #GetaRoom!”.

And Rowan would so be a stay-at-home dad, while Aelin would be out there ruling her kingdom and stuff… he would be a great full-time dad!


round 6

Kenji would become a dancer in a Beyonce video, he would also go on tour with her. He would also be amazing at it!

The final 2 are so hard!!! Ok, Warner would be the most likely to get his heart broken, because he had it broken already twice, but that will never happen again, because Juliette would never ever ever break his heart again. But he loves her so much that yeah, it’s the most likely thing for him…

And Rhys would starts a grunge band, lol. Or a boy band, not sure about that. Maybe he would be the bad-boy of the band, who gets all the attention but really only has eyes for one person… who in turn loves someone else. Oh, that’s tragic!


So, what did you think?

If you found this fun, consider yourself tagged!

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.”

July Book Haul

Hi! As promised, I’m here today to share with you my July book haul, which obviously includes my shiny new The Mortal Instruments books, with their amazing new covers (the last books just got in today).

Let’s start with The Mortal Instruments, which by the way, I have obviously already read some time ago…

But they are so damn beautiful… look at their spines…

Right?! Right? Gorgeous!

Other series that I got my hands on this month was the Shatter Me trilogy. I had been trying to get them for a while now, but the bookstore usually just had 2 of the 3 books, and I wanted to buy them all at the same time, to make sure their sizes were the same. A couple of weeks ago I went to the bookstore to pick up another book, and there they were, so, obviously, they came home with me. Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi.

As I had mention before on a Top Ten Tuesday post, I got Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, Magisterium: The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, Hollow City by Ransom Riggs, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, Charmed: The Power of Three by Eliza Willard and Constance M.
