City of Bones Movie Tie-In Edition with Pre-Order Links

Cassie just posted this picture of City of Bones, the movie tie-in edition and here's what she had to say:

The City of Bones tie-in edition! I’m always a little frightened of tie-in editions but this one came out extremely pretty. I love the creepy upside-down city and the book is shimmery gold on top and shimmery silver on the bottom. Here it is having arrived today, living on my coffee table.
Pre-order links: amazon |  Barnes and Noble | IndieBound

It's scheduled to be released on July 9th, and that's just around the corner! We're almost there!

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill, Cover Reveal

I am beyond thrilled to be teaming up with Disney Hyperion this morning to reveal the cover of their upcoming release, ALL OUR YESTERDAYS by Cristin Terrill. Fresh off it's reveal at this morning's BEA's YA Buzz Panel, I'm so excited to able to share the cover with you!

Check out this AWESOME cover!

“You have to kill him.”

Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present-imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America's most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’ life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.

“All Our Yesterdays” is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

Martin Moszkowicz Asks What is Our Must See Scene in City of Ashes

Martin tweeted these two questions and boy, did I immediately have answers! What do you think are your Not to Be Missed scenes in City of Ashes? I know we all agree about the obvious first answer, Seelie Court scene, but what about some of the other scenes?

My personal favorite is one of the last scenes in the book where Jace says, "I'll just be your brother from now on." (page 451). That scene still breaks my heart every single time I read it.

As for the "essence" of TMI? I'm going with bittersweet. What about you, MMs? What do you think best describes the essence of the series? Go answer Martin, @mmoszkowicz.

MTV News Exclusive On Set Interview with Jamie

MTV News has an exclusive on-set interview with Jamie Campbell Bower where they discuss, what else but, being Jace. Now I do remember when I first read City of Bones, I thought why would Clary fall for such a sarcastic, okay good-looking, jerk? But then about 100 pages into it, I understood that it was just part of Jace's armor and I actually began to look forward to his well-timed, snarky remarks. Here's Jamie's thought on Jace:
"What I love about him is the fact that he's actually a bit of a d*****bag," Bower said during a 3 a.m. interview on the Toronto set. "He's not like a meathead, he's just sarcastic and rude."
You can read the rest of the interview here including Cassie's thoughts on Jamie's performance, which I just loved:
"Personality-wise, Jamie is exactly like Jace," Clare said. "It's actually like interacting with Jace, talking to him. It's a little bit creepy."
Can you even imagine what that was like for Cassie? A character come to life? Creepy indeed.
