The last year has seen an explosion of popular YA novels being made into films. The next big thing (at least until Catching Fire is released in November) is sure to be Mortal Instruments: City of Bones based on the bestselling series of the same name by Cassandra Clare. In the first novel, City of Bones, good girl Clary Fray meets handsome and mysterious stranger Jace and soon finds herself drawn into a dark, supernatural world of demons, vampires, werewolves, and more. With plenty of action, mystery, and romance, the Mortal Instruments series is sure to attract numerous new fans with the release of the first film.
