The Last Hours snippet

Posted: 2015/07/08 in Uncategorized

Vi fick även ett citat från bokserien The Last Hour som ju utspelar sig tiden efter The Infernal Devices. Här rör det sig om tankar runt dansen vals och karaktärerna James och Cordelia.

James and Matthew separated, Matthew to dance with Lucie, and James to speak to his parents. Cordelia saw them glance over toward her and looked away quickly; still, she was not at all surprised when James appeared a moment later in front of her, flashing a smile at his aunt and uncle.

“Miss Carstairs,” he said, with a slight bow in Cordelia’s direction. “Would you favor me with this dance?”

“It’s a waltz,” said Cordelia’s mother, before Cordelia could speak. “My daughter does not know how to waltz.”

Cordelia bit her lip. She certainly knew how to dance: her mother had engaged an expert instructor to teach her the quadrille and the lancer, the stately minuet and the cotilion. But the waltz was a seductive dance, one where you could feel your partner’s body against yours, scandalous when it had first become popular.

She very much wanted to waltz with James.

Recently we were also treated to a snippet from the book series The Last Hour– taking place after The Infernal Devices. This quote revolvs around James and Cordelia.

Film Title: Pride and Prejudice.
Jag var sjuk flera dagar förra veckan och lyckades då återuppliva en gammal besatthet- är specialist på att snöa in på saker har jag märkt
Spenderade tiden hemma i soffan med att titta på 4 olika versioner av Stolthet och Fördom.
BBC versionen i 6 delar från 1995 såklart- med Jennifer Ehle och Colin Firth.
Den “nya” filmversionen från 2005 med Keira Knightley och Matthew MacFadyen.
Den skruvade komiska Lost in Austen med Jemima Roper och Elliot Cowan från 2008.
Samt YouTube versionen The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

Och även om jag tycker att BBC versionen från 1995 är helt underbar måste jag säga att det inte var för intet som jag såg filmen från 2005 minst 5 gånger! Matthew MacFadyens Mr Darcy…. alltså.
Och jag kan utvecka detta resonemang och kommer antagligen att göra det också men hittade ett blogg inlägg som ni kan läsa medan jag samlar mig. Och titta på videon nedan….

So I was at home ill for several days last week and spent a lot of time on the couch watching 4 different versions of Pride and Prejudice
The BBC 6 part TV version from 1995 with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firt
The “new” movie version from 2005 with Keira Knightley och Matthew MacFadyen.
The twisted comical Lost in Austen from 2008 with Jemima Roper och Elliot Cowan.
And finally the YouTube version The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

Eventhough I absolutely adore the BBC version, there was a reason why I replayed the movie more then 5 times. Matthew MacFadyen as Mr Darcy- I cannot stop fangirling…. Here’s a link to a blogg that shares my views and don’t forget to watch the YouTube clip above. More fangirling will follow later on I’m sure.

Hoppsan vad man missar mycket nu för tiden. Constatine Film som gjorde City of Bone funderar på att göra TMI till en TV serie istället för en ny film! Cassandra kommer att ha mer nyheter att dela om ett par veckor. vad tror ni om en TV serie för TMI?

Läs mer här/ Read the article here: TMI TV Reboot

Ooops, seems like I’m missing alot these days! So Constatine Film consideres making a TV series out of TMI istead of a movie follow up!
Cassandra will appereantly have more news to share in a while:

I don’t know. But I am flying out to meet with the showrunner, Ed Decter, in a few weeks, so I may well know then.

Any thoughts on TMI as a TV series?


Busy reading CoHF

CoHF Cover

Ber om ursäkt för att jag uppdaterat väääldigt dåligt på sistonde, men jag är fullt upptagen med att klämma in några sidors läsning av City of Heavenly Fire mellan jobb, familj, besök och allt annat. Har kommit halvvägs nu och jag älskar den så här långt! Härligt att få lära känna Emma och Julian samt ta del av vad som händer med Brother Zachariah. Och där får jag sluta innan det blir en massa spoilers!

I apologize for not updating recently, but I’ve been very busy trying to squeeze in a few pages of reading CoHF, here and there- between work, the family, visitors and what not. I’m about halfway through and I’m loving the book so far! So nice to get to know more about Emma, Julian and what happens to Brother Zachariah. But enough about that before I turn all spoilery.

Här kommer omslaget till den första boken i The Magisterum serien, kallad The Iron Trial. Denna serie som Cassandra Clare skriver tillsammans med Holly Black inriktar sig på mellanstadie ungdomar.

Are you ready to see the cover of The Iron Trial from Cassandra Clare and Holly Black’s new middle grade series Magisterium?

USA Today hasn’t only shared the cover but there’s also an exclusive excerpt.

The Iron TrialFrom USA Today:

The five-book series, aimed at readers 8-12, features students at the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. Clare says she had “a certain trepidation that I wouldn’t be able to capture a middle-grade voice, since I’ve only written for older teens. Working with Holly helped iron that out because she’s a middle-grade expert.”

Cassie added on her tumblr:

Aaron is in the center. Callum is on his left, and Tamara on his right.

The Iron Trial will be released September 9.

How cool is the cover/the excerpt and did you notice the sweet dedication to Holly Black’s son Sebastian?
