I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

Review: City of Bones: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion - Mimi O'Connor

City of Bones: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion by Mimi O'Connor, published by Simon and Schuster on 1st August 2013

Goodreads synopsis:
Get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie with this official companion book. This fan favorite features full-color photos from the set, designers’ sketches, interviews with the cast and crew, and more!


Review:
Since getting this book I keep picking it up again and again to discover more about the wonderful world that Cassandra Clare has created.  There is so much packed into this guide that if you love the books and have enjoyed the film then you really need to add this title to your collection. 

Everything you would want in a movie companion is here.  There are fantastic full glossy photos of all the cast, pictures of behind the scenes, interviews with Cassandra Clare herself and interesting insights into the making of the film.  The book is literally packed with so much interesting information that you'll constantly find something new to grab your attention. 

It must be incredible seeing a story you've written come to life before your eyes and the companion provides a unique insight into this.  I enjoyed finding out about the problems encountered in the making of the film, as well as what the author felt about the whole process.   

If you love The Mortal Instruments then I would highly recommend this book which is the perfect movie companion for fans of the series.
