Hi guys I wanted to take a survey today, because I've been having trouble choosing to start reading the Mortal Instruments series or not. I know the movie is coming out soon, and I want to read the novel first, before watching it if I do. I have the Infernal Devices series, which is the prequel to the Mortal Instruments series. I've read the first two books, and my thoughts initially on them were that they were pretty awesome, but now that I think about it, it seems like a very paranormal soap opera. Care to yell at me if you want. Yeah... anyways I know there are die-hard fans of the series, and I know there maybe some neutral people out there, so help please? Thanks.
