Adaptation #54: TMI and Incestuous Canoodling

header054In this rather late episode, our hosts discuss the first Mortal Instruments installment by Cassandra Clare, City of Bones. They all seem to love the exact same characters, and find the others a little less than bright, while rolling their eyes at how none of them realize that they are stringing someone along. And the ending makes some love the book more, while others feel it’s too reminiscent of another beloved series.

Edit: Now available, check out the episode on the film!
