Pre-Order TMI: CoB The Little Book of Quotes

A fun new book popped up as a pre-order on amazon, TMI:City of Bones The Little Book of Quotes. Here's the synopsis description:

A gorgeous hardcover book that features wise, inspirational or funny quotes from the script of This summer's blockbuster movie, alongside character profiles and stunning cast photos. There is even the chance to design and colour your own quotes and runes on the specially designed write-in pages! This beautiful hardback book, with its gold-debossed-foil cover and gold-pantone- and-black-ink insides, is a must-have for any fan! The movie is based on Cassandra Clare's international bestselling book series. There are over 16 million copies in print worldwide and the series has been translated into more than 35 languages.
Release date is set for July 9th. What do you think, Mundie Moms, is this a must have item? I must admit liking the idea of a collection of quotes from CoB.

A Glimpse Into Cassie's Writing Retreat

Spoonhenge from Cassie's tumblr

From Cassie's tumblr, a little glimpse into her writing retreat with Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Kelly Link and Jennifer Lynn Barnes.

I was sitting on the sofa writing a Bane Chronicle. (The Last Stand of the New York Institute.) I intended never to go outside again.
A seagull has pooped on my face twice in the last three days.
It’s not safe outside.
(Several theories: 1. Seagulls are soulgulls. They want my soul and 2. The wereseagull has marked me for his bride.)
Then Maureen came in, her face uplifted.
MAUREEN: I have recreated Stonehenge.
FRIENDS: Why would you do this?
FRIENDS: … oh.
MAUREEN: But… it is entirely made of spoons.
MAUREEN: I call it… Spoonhenge.
Reader, I went outside
I love these moments where we see their creativity at work. Does anyone remember when Cassie and Holly found that giant worm which was eventually the inspiration behind the infamous Lightworm scene in Clockwork Princess?  You never know in which book Spoonhenge may end up.
