After getting a whole lotta entries, I’ve finally winnowed it down to the top 5 entries in the Mortal Instruments: Splat Hair Color giveaway!  Yaaaaay!  *ahem*

And the winners are:

  • Summer Walter, who would like to be a witch; “Witches can cast spells over the werewolves , vampires, shapeshifters! Not to mention witches can do good things, but don’t double cross them because they could cast an evil spell as well or curse you!”
  • Stephanie Grant, who wants to be “a hybrid Shadowhunter/Vampire that way I would have both sets of assets at my disposal and be on the good side of the battle. I could walk in the daylight and be able to turn into a bat and fly what could be cooler?”
  • Ebony Brown, for the Heroes shoutout; her choice would to be “Peter f’n Petrelli! I would absorb any powers to be had and kickbutt!”
  • Bri Elliot, because she’d like to be “a shadow hunter. I like to kick ass and take names!”
  • Steve Rauch, for making a good point; he’d be a “Vampire, since they get the prettiest girls!”

Mortal Instruments: Splat Hair Color Prize Pack giveaway!

Yes, I read YA Fiction.  I ain’t ashamed.  Because most of the time, that stuff is amazing.  Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Infernal Devices…and that’s just a sampling of what’s come around lately.  (Don’t get me started on classics like Lord of the Flies, Earthsea and The Hobbit.  Yes, The Hobbit was considered a book for the young’uns.)  Some of these have been made into films, some haven’t.  Some are on the way to you.  Which brings me to another series that’s pretty darn tasty, The Mortal Instruments.

What’s this particular tale about?  Oh, I’ve got you.  Here’s the synopsis of the first book, and the movie, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones:

Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures.  Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.

I’ve read this novel and let’s just say there ain’t no lovestruck, happy vamps and werewolves around these particular parts.  City of Bones stars Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror), Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga), Robert Sheehan (Misfits), Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Kevin Durand (Lost), Aidan Turner(UK’s Being Human), among many more.  Nice, right?  Absolutely.

So, wanna head to the theater and catch a show, for free?  This ain’t no screening invite, it’s a “you get free tickets to the movies” contest.  Plus there’s more….
