The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones | Review

Hi girls, guys. Whatever sex is reading this post. I hope you all had a lovely weekend?.
Sorry I haven't post anything in a good few days. I've been rather busy lately. So hectic, I've not kept up with exercise or wrote anything significant in my novel (except made a few changes. I might just one day complete it. I hope!). So I'm hoping to get into a good routine where I have time to do what I need to do. Writing, keeping up with an exercise routine, blogging more, whilst juggling home life. The weekend just gone I went to Newcastle for the weekend which has totally taken it out of me. I celebrated a lovely 25 years of marriage. They renewed their vows and it was a lovely service.  

I was also bought a fantastic treat by my mum the Korres lip butter in pomegranate - which came today I've wanted it for ages even before I got the Korres rose stick from Birchbox e-shop (Pomegranate was unavailable. This was purchase from Feel unique in the sale and with free delivery on all orders its well worth a purchase) and I also was a winner of the Rimmel stay matte challenge and will be receiving a goodie bag any day - expect reviews. This is the second product I've reviewed for Rimmel and won both times. I'll go into more detail when I do a post on what I got. But I'm majorly excited and very thankful to both my mum and Rimmel for some exciting new stuff.

Today I went to see The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones with my sister for some quality sister time. We got there before it opened and were the only one's in the cinema watching it, (everyone went back to school today) which was nice. I manage to find a deal for my local cinema for two tickets and large popcorn for only £9.00 - complete bargain when you think of how expensive it is to go to the cinema now a days. Now I've wanted to watch this film since I saw the trailer advertised on the last installment Twilight so quite a long time. I'm such a fantasy fanatic and love Harry Potter, Twilight, The host and Beautiful Creatures plus fantasy novels are amongst my favourites. Now Mortal Instruments is a 7/8 book series and even though I've not had chance to read the books yet (it will set me back a good £40 downloading them to my kindle) I hope to in the future. After watching the trailer I became a crazy looney rabbiting on about it just like I did with Beautiful Creatures and will with Fifty Shades and Fallen.

When her mother disappears, Clary Fray learns that she descends from a line of warriors who protect our world from demons. She joins forces with others like her and heads into a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld.

When I saw the trailer I was so excited to watch this film. And the film didn't disappoint. I'm not going to go to much into it because it's fairly new. I don't want to ruin the surprise with any spoilers. But if you like Twilight, The host or Beautiful Creatures you will LOVE this. I think it might be even better then all three and I really love the three films mentioned so that's saying something. Yes this does have romance, some comedy lines but it's quirky, comes with story lines that you don't expect to happen, it's not full on romantic and is quite the action packed fantasy film and the graphics are fabulous. I recommend you go see this so much. Score 10/10. One for the DVD purchase list and I can't wait for the next chapter in The Mortal Instrument series.


  1. I really want to watch this too, might go cinema when my son starts full time at reception, if its still in cinema by then lol, xoxo.

    1. It will be for a month or so yet. It's good you'll enjoy it. Just been looking up what the books are about and I really want to read them. xx

    2. Hows your book coming along? xx

    3. I haven't touched it for a month and half. I have ideas pouring out my brain and when I went on holiday I took a lot of photo's of discoveries and places I went that gave me more ideas. I just need to start writing. I recently read through the lot of it and changed a few words but I just haven't had the time. I'm going to make time because I'm so passionate about completing it. My only problem is I can't stop reading other peoples stories ha. Less reading more typing will be my moto xx

    4. Its a long process but once its done you'll be craving writing and be on to the next book lol, xoxo.

    5. Yes your so right. I really want to do it. But time is going by so quickly. My daughter starts nursery properly soon and my son goes full-time at school Monday so maybe I'll start next week. It would be a dream come true to do some sort of writing work especially if it's a novel xx

    6. I can't wait to read your novel :D. My son starts reception next week Tuesday but its only mornings and then they will increase it, xoxo.

    7. Lol.. hopefully it's released for a audience to read. I copy and paste it to my mum what I've wrote so far well a while back I did like a bit. She said it was good but it needs a few changes. I don't want to make any changes probably just grammar wise. I like the beginning that she said needs sort of changing. After all it's me writing it, it's my story lol xx

    8. Lol There will always be critics, follow your heart, xoxo.

    9. Yes I know. I will. It's not that she doesn't like it she said she does. She just said needs some changes. I don't think she can say anything until it's a full written book then maybe judge. I need to get to the bottom of what changes she means exactly. She did say it a good few months ago though. xx
