Hi everyone,

The Mortal Instruments book series is one of my favourites. As you may know, the movie version didn't go down so well, so now they have created a TV show called "Shadowhunters".

What are your thoughts on this new upcoming adaptation of the books?

Yeah I agree, I didn't mind the movie either. Even though it did leave some things out and change things that happened in the book, but I guess that's just what happens generally with book to movie adaptations...

For the series... I'm not sure whether I like the new casting... I grew fond of the movie casting.

I've only read the first two books, but I'm certain the TV series will be better than the film (I just couldn't bear watching the entire film) as there's more room to plot and develop everything. I'm not hoping too much, though!

I've read the books and watched the movie, I honestly thought both were great. Although, considering..there's always more details and depth in the books that they can't insert into the movie. I definitely grew fond of the movie casting as well, a little disappointed the cast members for the tv series is different...buttttt I'll give it a chance a watch the premiere and a few episodes!
