*sigh* I'm having the hardest time finding new book boyfriends lately. All the boys I've been reading about just aren't up to par with all my other boyfriends. So I'm going to bring one of my favorites out and show him off. This week it's Jace from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare!
*Jace is a shadowhunter, he kills demons for a living
*is super cocky and gorgeous, and he knows it.
*Is described as "golden." Has blonde hair, tan skin, beautiful eyes
*Has daddy issues
Who I picture him looking like:
I'm still super pissed off that Jamie Campbell Bower got the part of Jace, because ALEX PETTYFER IS JACE. Hands down. He is the perfect Jace and will always be the perfect Jace.
"I haven't read your tea leaves, Shadowhunter? Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
Dorothea roared at that." At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting."
“I was thinking about the first time I ever saw you," he said, "and how after that I couldn't forget you. I wanted to, but I couldn't stop myself. I forced Hodge to let me be the one who came to find you and bring you back to the Institue. And even back then, in that stupid coffee shop, when I saw you sitting on that couch with Simon, even then that felt wrong to me-- I should have been the one sitting with you. The one who made you laugh like that. I couldn't get rid of that feeling. That it should have been me. And the more I knew you, the more I felt it--it had never been like that for me before. I'd always wanted a girl and then gotten to know her and not wanted her anymore, but with you the feeling just got stronger and stronger until that night when you showed up at Renwick's and I knew.”
“One of the Silent Brothers is here to see you. Hodge sent me to wake you up. Actually he offered to wake you himself, but since it's 5 a.m., I figured you'd be less cranky if you had something nice to look at." "Meaning you?"
“And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.”
Did you know there is 61 pages of quotes if you search "Mortal Instruments" in the quotes section of Goodreads? And almost all of them are Jace quotes. I had a hard time picking out quotes, but decided to (mostly) go with his more mushy quotes. Cause Jace getting all mushy is oh so cute.
