Bookish News ~ 3/15/14

The Mortal Instruments TV Show - It has been released that TMI filing will start in May in Vancouver! ABC Family has picked up the show and is co-producing with Constantin. A casting call went out on Craigslist for LA, and the characters are being aged up to college years.

I am VERY nervous because ABC Family has a reputation for screwing up adaptations. Constantin produced TMI movie, and it was horrible... They threw out the cast (thank gosh), and I'm trying to be hopeful. The producers are considering doing a book per season. Also Cassandra Clare is not affiliated with this tv show at all. She has no say in anything and has nothing to do with the project. That's all we know for now!


How has your week been?

  1. Thanks for sharing! I hadn't heard that ABC Family picked it up until just now.. That makes me nervous as well. Though I haven't read the Pretty Little Liars books I am positive that the books were not like the TV show.. I'm SO glad they're getting a new cast. I need Magnus to be way more fabulous. Crossing my fingers!!

  2. I cannot believe that they are making TMI into a television series! I don't think its going to work out... thank God they scraped the movie cast though. The Queen of Shadows cover is gorgeous!

  3. I can't decide whether I'm nervous or excited about the TMI TV show. I just hope it won't be a complete disaster.. And I love the Queen of Shadows cover so much!! :)

  4. Not sure how I feel about a TMI show. I've talked to a few people, all who say that they're excited, but if the author's not involved, I think they might butcher the books. I'll check it out though!

  5. I'm not sure I'll be watching this show, I didn't have problems with ABC before but the movie was unbelievably bad, and the cast! I loved Lily Collins in Love, Rosie but she was just not Clary and let's not mention the others. I wasn't such a fan of Winter's cover at first sight but now I think it's pretty, not as gorgeous as Cress' was though.

  6. I'm trying to not be TOO hopeful because... this could really end up crappy but hope keeps poking so... Fingers crossed.

    THE COVERS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL!!! They already changed the cover for Trial by Fire? I must say, this one is prettier. UNTAMED AND QUEEN OF SHADOWS!!! SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! <3 <3

    Great post! :)

  7. I'm really angry that they didn't keep Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace. I just hope the TV show is at least good.

    I love the changes in the Trial by Fire covers! All of the others are beautiful as well, I think Untamed and Queen of Shadows are my favorites!

  8. Rachel, if you're nervous about ABC adapting the Mortal Instruments for TV, let me give you some consolation: if it ends up being bad, just remember that it won't be nearly as bad as the Percy Jackson movies. *shudders in horror*

    That is all.

  9. Wow, I do NOT like the sound of it. For the author to have NO input? Doesn't sound great to me. I haven't even watched the movie since I heard it was so bad. Someday, I might. And I will probably try the show but I am not hopeful!

    THOSE COVERS! I am usually not a fan of redesigns, but the Trial by Fire covers... oh the gorgeous! I need them. And Unhinged is amazing. And WINTER is amazing! And I don't even know what See Me is, but I need it too! (That probably isn't a good idea, I should at least look it up on Goodreads or something!)

  10. I can't focus on any other covers, all that I can see is the beautiful and amazing and perfect Untamed cover! AS far as the tv show, I actually think it might just be decent. It has a much better chance as a show, being able to add more information and more of the story into the show each episode. But I think its biggest advantages are no author means a little more free reign, and completely starting over with the casting. WE shall see. I will definitely check it out!

  11. A TV SHOW!?!?! But doesn't it have a film already? Hmmm, I wonder if they're going to scrap the makings of the sequel of the film for the TV show instead. I can definitely see it working as a TV show than one huge movie cramming everything in a measly 2 hours.

  12. TV SHOW xD I'm still deciding if that's a good thing or a bad thing .. The last four covers are so beautiful though x Thank you for sharing Rachel! <3 Benish | Feminist Reflections

  13. Oh lots of pretty covers! I like this new Trial by Fire cover and the cover for Winter looks cool as well!

  14. I really like the new Trial By Fire cover! It looks so awesome! I also like Winter and of course QoS! Untamed has a cool one... though I haven't read the series.

    I don't know what to think about TMI being made as a tv show. I guess I'm still so horrified over that awful movie. LOL.

  15. I've never read The Mortal Instruments, and I'm not really interested in the books or TV show. I just hope one of my shows on ABC Family doesn't end up cancelled to make room for it. I'd be devastated.

    I really like that new cover for Trial by Fire, but I'm bummed that the new hardcover of the second book won't match the first edition. Oh well. But Winter... that is just unbelievably gorgeous. I thought maybe it would be hair and a ribbon or the red lip. It took me by surprise.

  16. No way! A TV show?! Oh my goodness Rachel this just made my day! Gaaaahhh! Thank you so much for sharing! *bear hug*

    All those covers are perfect! Especially Winter and ACoTaR.
