My Book Boyfriend

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader. It is a weekly meme where we talk about a literary crush including stats, a picture of what you imagine he looks like and some quotes from him that make you swoon.  If you are interested in participating please check out the My Book Boyfriend Introduction Page over at Missie's blog The Unread Reader.

This week my book boyfriend is:

Jace Wayland/Herondale from The Mortal Instuments Series by Cassandra Clare


Status:  Jace is a Shadowhunter. He's part nephilim and part human. He's also Clary's love interest.

Age: 17

Height:About 5´11´

Eyes: Gold

Hair: Blonde

More info: Jace is extremely good at hunting and killing demons. He tends to keep to himself and hide behind his sarcasm and though exterior. 

"I was born amazing."

"Do you remember back at the hotel when you promised thatt if we lived, you'd get dressed up in a nurse's outfit and give me a sponge bath?" asked Jace
"It was Simon who promised you the sponge bath."
"As soon as I'm back on my feet, handsome." said Simon.
"I knew we should have left you a rat."

"Don't." Clary raised a warning hand. "I'm not really in the mood right now."
"That's got to be the first time a girl's ever said that to me." Jace mused

"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 dares 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."

"There is no pretending." Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll you then."

Actor Alex Pettyfer

I know we already have a Jace for the movies but I think I'll always imagine Jace as looking like Alex Pettyfer.

What about you? Who's your Jace?


  1. I prefer Alex as Jake as well (and not the actor from the real movie, but they didn't ask for my opinion, so I'll have to deal with it.. LOL) and I love those quotes.. they remind me of why I loved so much this series.. It was because of Jake of course (I LOVED him in the first book)

  2. I will ALWAYS see Alex Pettyfer as Jace. ALWAYS! great post :)

  3. I dont like the movie Jace.... BOOO. Great pic

  4. Ah Jace! Amazing quotes by the way makes me want to go back and re-read the mortal instruments :D And I agree I think all of us pictured Jace as Alex Pettyfer..

  5. Oh Alex will always be the Jace in my head! Even though I do like JCB for the part in the movie.

  6. I will forever be disappointed that Alex didn't get the part of Jace. He would have been beyond perfect!

  7. I totally pictured Alex as Jace too! Sadly, the more I see of Jamie, the less attrative he is to me. Let's cross our fingers for movie magic!
