movie news — casting Clary  
Just dropping an entry to announce that, as reported by Deadline, Lily Collins, who starred in The Blind Side and the upcoming Priest**, has been cast to play Clary in the movie adaptation of City of Bones. The producers and director have worked with her before and say great things, and I have to admit right now I haven't seen The Blind Side but am obviously going to go out and watch it NOW.

She is completely adorable and looks right for Clary to me:

[and with curly hair!]

And now, of course, as this article notes, presumably the speculation about who plays Jace will begin in earnest . . .

** And apparently is also famous for dating Taylor Lautner — did I know this? No, but my readers apparently know everything. :)

ETA: There are now 590 comments on the post and I think 589 mention Alex Pettyfer. We get it. Really, we do! It would be hard to miss. Just a reminder that I don't have any influence over casting!

I LOVE the books, and THANK GOD I had Clockwork Angel in my hands on my way home from college! :D I had a 12.5 hour drive instead of 6.5, and I could not put your book down. I was seriously like:
"Alright, a few more pages, and I should take a break..."
*five chapters later*
"Woah! I can't stop now! This is getting WAY too good!"

It was incredible, and Magnus made me laugh a lot! <3 I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited for the next few books in both series and also the movie! Ive been dying to see if they would make it one.
