OH. MY. GOD.
I have been a fan of the MI books for years, but have somehow been unable to find this thread until now… I know – I am ashamed.
I was so in love with the books, and was absolutely devastated when it ended. I reread the series again, so that I could convince myself that it wasn’t over. Then I read the books again.
When I found out about City of Fallen Angels, I could not contain my joy.
There are no other words for it. I was so unbelievably excited… and then on top of that, to find out that there is another series coming. Wow. I was beyond thrilled.
But, when I found out about the movie, I wasn’t actually that excited.
I sort of couldn’t help but be scared that it would get ruined, y’know? That the movie would suck, or that, all of sudden, people would be like, “so there’s this new movie…” and: “I think I might read the book or whatever?”
I’d already seen this same thing happen to Twilight, so of course I was scared that it would happen again, and to books that I love more than the Twilight Saga (don’t tell anyone I said that!)
and of course, the idea that they might alter the plot line to make it more “conventional” or “socially acceptable”… I will be very upset if this happens, but I must resign myself to the idea that it might.
Anyways… I just had to share all that with people who would understand. *shrugs* if you think I’m totally crazy that’s okay, too, but I’d love to talk more about the books.
Favorite book? Favorite character? Quote? What do you want to see happen in COFA
What are you looking forward to in The Infernal Devices
Please let me know, because I’d love to talk more about these wonderful books.
