My Book Boyfriend-- Jace!

My book boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie over at The Unread Reader. Each week you post about a boy from a book that you love. What he looks like, who should play him, his best quotes, all that.

*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!

About Jace:
*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?"
"What else?” 

“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.


  1. Well I can't wait to read some of those mushy quotes because I'm halfway through the first book and I have yet to come across any so far. Hoping Jace turns out to be everything people rave about because so far I'm not very impressed. I do love your pick for Jace though. He fits the bill almost perfectly. And this guy is just super hot.

  2. Jace does have some great quotes! Love the one about how he turns himself down. Alex makes a perfect Jace. Blonde and hot! Lots of Jace lovin today!

  3. Another Jace! He's seems to be the favourite this week, and as ever, Alex is perfect.

    Nothing from me this week. But I thought I'd comment anyway.


  4. I guess I really need to read this. Everybody loves Jace!
    Here is mine:

  5. Jace has the best lines in this series. He's so funny. I love that arrogant, cocky demeanor he has. Yum!

  6. Everything Jace says is the best! I loved that one about him being in love with himself. And yes, if I had him to look at in the morning, I doubt I'd ever be cracky too. LOL

  7. I love the pictures you chose for him! I refrained from reading the quotes, because I've only read City of Bones yet. (:

  8. Jace is popular this week! I haven't read the series yet, but it is next on my list after finishing Vampire Academy. Alex Pettyfer is absolutely beautiful!

  9. Oh yes...Jace is the perfect Book Boyfriend and gets better with each book. I am not happy about Jamie as Jace either. I do not have high hopes for the movie. Thankfully the books can live forever in our minds.

  10. Honestly - Jace is the best! I absolutely love everyone's different versions of Jace all of his quotes are the best & Alex is one of my favourite actors to play Jace as well! Fantastic post this week :) I'm not new to My Book Boyfriend, but I took a hiatus - I'm happy to be back and swooning all over again :)

    Check mine out if you're interested!

  11. I adore Jace and Alex! I have them both on my very first Book Boy Friend!

    I didn't choose Alex for Jace, though! I think it's an excellent match!

    Great pick and LOVE the quotes, Jace rocks!

  12. Alex Pettyfer will always be my ultimate Jace!

  13. Fun post! I had no idea there were that many pages of quotes for this series! There are a lot of funny lines. :)
    And maybe the Jace they picked won't be so bad? It's always sad when the person you think would be good for a character isn't in the movie. I'm still sad about some of the Hunger Games casting.

  14. I LOVE JACE <3 <3 <3

    And you've picked great quotes ;) ;)

  15. Some people on here probably don't know... Alex Pettyfer isnt just someone we really wanted to be Jace... He was GIVEN the role. he got it and ended up turning it down. this new guy Jamie Cambell Bower looks NOTHING like the Jace anybody who read this book would've imagined. Never... I am very, very pissed... i agree completely with whoever posted this... im still just VERY very pissed.. lol

    1. Yeah and Jace... I'm completely in love with him. honestly, one of my fav. Clary/Jace moments isnt a romantic one, but when she slapped him in the face and said "that's for the other ten percent" You have to have read the first book to get it <33333
      LOVE JACE!!! <3333333


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
