I've just started on City of Bones (my friend recommended it) and this is almost exactly how I picture them! 
Fantastic!

I love your Simon and Isabelle, how they bracket the other characters! :D To think these younglings are the Clave's monster killing dream team and no one knows it---except perhaps Magnus who's a little in awe at how much they put their lives on the line while everyone else in the world is lazy. 

Is the show living up to your expectations? For me it's going beyond. I love it so much. Undertale Sans Brows Emoji

About the show, not so much. I didn't expect it to be amazing but i wanted it to be better... I love Isabelle and Alec IS PERFECT but Simon is a bit annoying in the series and so is clary and Jace is not as annoying as I hoped ahah... i just didn't get the same vibe i got from the books on these last 3 characters.
And Clace is my OTP i loveeed them so much in the books but i just don't se chemestry in the series... I find myself shipping Malec more that Clace, which, althoug i've always shipped malec like i said clace is my otp. I just wish they shared the same chemestry then some other tv characters... 
And to me honest i think the acting could be better. I still like it. I just don't love it. It wasn't a pleasent suprise like the 100.

I got the exact vibe the show is portraying from the books. Clary never looked at consequences and Jace bashed on Alec constantly and... I'm glad it's not being glamourized in the show. The friendships are being questioned, but well. It won't take my until COHF or season 6 this time to see any sign of a parabatai bond. 
I like the show's Clace better, honestly (wow, we're opposites). In the books it was really bright and shiny and I just wasn't feeling it. 
Someone mentioned how for the first time, Clace is quiet and slowly building while Malec is the loud, sparks and heat relationship. I love that because it gets me to appreciate the subtle friendship and support Jace and Clary have. There's this deep emotional connection, not based on loud jokes and stubborn slapping. Clace got that later as they got to know each other. In the show I'm guessing they're going the opposite way (the slapping scene was taken out and fans are guessing it's because Clary was in mourning in the first couple episodes and making her to flirt from day one would be a little strange). Instead, Jace gave her space since the beginning, let Isabelle take care of her and joined in in looking after her and her friend since the beginning. He manages to make her laugh by episode three, and that's when their friendship really starts, but before that it was all just him watching to see what state she's in (after having first met her where she fainted and was saturated in her own tears over her ripped away family).
I like that better. It allows me time to emphasize with Clary. In the books, she's sad and then she just starts calling the shots from day one. This Clary does too, but you can see the stutter in her drive (I've never related to Clary before and suddenly I care about her, I wish her and Jace well no matter how many mistakes they make. They're so human and it's tugging at my heart---and I usually don't feel anything for relationships because I always find them forced and instant).

As for Malec... well, they weren't allowed to be in many scenes in the first three books because school libraries wouldn't allow too much 'gay'. But this is 2016. They're being allowed to flirt openly, and for us to see their relationship and I'm honestly so relieved. I was expecting a show to make everyone stereotype 'the nerd, the flamboyant, the mean girl, the closeted' and instead we're getting more character development then almost in the whole series and I'm just--heavens. :D It's beautiful. 

But I get how orthodox book fans wouldn't like it. It's not an exact page by page reading. It's an alternate universe (fanfiction*shot*) who's still at the mere beginnings of its ventures, still testing the waters of TV. 
I can't say I watch television except for this show so I don't compare it to other shows. I have too many things in my life to become a professional critic. Still, I'm seriously enjoying this. Almost prefering it (just to see Alec's story not be narrowed down to 'he's gay and jealous' but instead 'he's brilliant, rule abiding, the devil's advocate to the rest of the group's reckless---oh, yeah, and he's gay but that's not everything about him'. I also love that Izzy and Clary don't instantly slightly dislike each other 'like girls do', that Izzy's confidence is so strong that she doesn't need to be mean to others to bolster it. She's just naturally gifted, confident. I love that Izzy's clothes isn't slut shamed by her brothers, I love that Jace visibly cares about everyone which I sometimes questioned in the books). 

So there's so many perspectives. I can understand from a TV perspective that the beginning's acting needed to find it's footing and how they've taken a book with lines like 'it's the mortal cup Jace, not the mortal toilet bowl' and made it into something vibrant, human and adult without fearing being annoying or adding a little immaturity (because they're very much annoying at the beginning and the characters later develop to be who they are in COHF) but still maintaining the story and its seriousness. 

...
I also may be a little biased because I love the show positive fandom. They're so much nicer then the show negative who seem to think that slut shaming Izzy, slurring at Luke or asking a show that they don't personally find entertaining (after only watching episode one for fifteen minutes) and yelling for it to be cancelled, sending hate mail to the actors... Like dang.
Plus, the show positive fandom has theories everywhere and analyses and gifs and text posts and memes abundant. I've never seen the TMI fandom so vibrant, so alive. :D

had trouble getting into this book series, the movie was definition of 'meh', and now they're going to try with a new tv adaptation, so... this is still very great art for some very dynamic characters, and you should be proud.

Well, i love the books they are currently nº 4 on my favourite books list. I hated the movie and lets see how the show goes. I'm exited but i've lowered my expectations... it will never be as great as the books (much like most of the times)

Very interested in hearing about the rest of the favorite books list! Big fan of the artwork you post for your favorites, maybe there's other novels that might be of further interest. Always looking for new things to read.

I quite like it. I mean i'm a bit worried about Kat as clary because she seems a bit inexeperienced, and i wish jace was the curly haired hottie that i envisioned but that is ok. I feel like the biggests problems come in the wordrobe area like clary in heals and stuff like that, that i most certainly didn't picture her wearing, but tv shows and movies almost always do that. No characters can have different body types or styles, girls always wear heals to school, boys always have abs, stuff like that...
