The Mortal Instruments: Summer Reading

Listen, we don't know what your summer reading plans are, but we do know that your friends probably keep asking for a good beach read. And, let's be honest, this is probably a show you're going to want to watch with other people. So, here are 9 fail-proof reasons to get your friends on board with The Mortal Instruments.


1. This isn’t your typical Vampire, Werewolf and Demon story.


2. It’s about Shadowhunters and they’re awesome.

Take one... I promise.

3. The leading lady is a fiery redhead with a personality to match.


4. Sparkling vampires are a thing of the past. Make way for a glistening warlock who loves glitter.

5. There’s a good deal of power couple romance brewing.

Clary and Jace. Clary and Jace. Clary. And. Jace. 

6. Valentine Morgenstern wins the sexiest villain of the year award every time. Also, Voldemort never wore Versace.


7. Isabelle Lightwood. Girl crush anyone?


8. It’s an emotional rollercoaster. Love, betrayal, power, weakness-if you feel it, this series has it.


9. You’ll wish you’d read it sooner.
