Fun Weekly Findings

This is a new feature I'm going to be doing where I am going to share one new thing I discovered this past week- it can be absolutely anything, from a new word I learned, to a new cover release I found, to a new book blog I discovered, or anything else. It's going to be a fun way for me to share cool new stuff- bookish or non-bookish! I will share only one thing or many, whatever I feel like.

1. I only have one thing to share this week but it's awesome news if you haven't heard it yet. They have officially chosen the actress to play Clary in an upcoming City of Bones movie! Cassandra Clare posted about it on her blog here.

Clary will be played by Lily Collins (she was in The Blind Side). I can see her as Clary, I think she's a great choice! (With red hair, of course). I can't wait for the movie to come out, though I'm nervous at the same time because I think it would be very easy to screw it up like some other movie adaptions of novels I've seen.

What do you think of the casting choice?


  1. I hope that you enjoy your books. Happy Reading. Wanna check out what I got this week In My Mailbox?

  2. Lily Collins is perfect, in my opinion! I'm so jealous you got Rival! I can't wait for your review! HarperTeen has never replied to an ARC request from me haha :)

    Great haul this week, Ava!

  3. Cool IMM! Congrats on getting Rival. I'm looking forward to that book. It's on my list for 2k11 Challenge. Lily Collins is a great choice. She did a terrific job in The Blind Side.

  4. I went out and got some more books after doing my IMM today, and one was Fixing Delilah. Interested to see what you think.

    Have a good week!

    I still need to read the mortal instruments series

  5. I'm currently reading Fixing Delilah and it is so good. I hope you enjoy it, happy reading! :D

  6. Great books this week. I am dying to read them all. Enjoy!


Thanks for the comments! I read every single one and try to reply, either on your blog or another comment! They make my day!

As of 1/17/11, Book Infinity is an awards-free blog. My schedule is busy as could be, and I don't have time to follow all the rules to pass them on. But I really do appreciate the thought, thanks so much for thinking about me!
