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:

Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare


Status: Will is a Shadowhunter in Victorian England. He's Tessa's love interest.

Age: 17


Eyes: Blue

Hair: Black
More info: Will is a bad boy. He's incredibly aware of his charm and has a number of vices like smoking. He can be a good guy, though and there's something in his past that makes him hide behind his attitude.

"But that wasn't what made her stare. He had the most beautiful face she had ever seen. Tangled black hair and eyes like blue glass. Elegant cheeckbones, a full mouth, and long, thick lashes. Even the curve of his throath was perfect. He lookes like every fictional hereo she'd ever conjured up in her head."

"No, I mean enterprising." said Will. "When I mean morally deficient, I say 'Now, that is something I would have done'"

"Oh, I can never get enough. Which, incidentally, is what your sister said when..."

"Jem gave her a wistful look. "Must you go? I was rather hoping you'd stay and be a ministering angel, but if you must go, you must."
"I'll stay." Will said a bit crossly, and threw himself down in the armchair Tessa had just vacated. "I can minister angelically."
"None too convincingly. And you're not as pretty to look at as Tessa is." Jem said, closing his eyes as he leaned back against the pillow.
"How rude. Many who have gazed upon me have compared it to gazing at the radiance of the sun."
Jem still had his eyes closed. "If they mean that it gives you a headache, they aren't wrong."

Actor Gaspard Ulliel

I'll confess I love Gaspard and I think he would make a good Will. What do you think?
Who is your Will?


  1. wow...what really cool pics! I never thought of Gaspard as Will...but he works! Great post!

  2. Yes! Carla, you're brilliant.

    Gaspard would be a PERFECT Will. Will is such a clever lad. He makes me laugh like no other. Thanks for those fun quotes. Love them! :)

  3. WILL! oh, this is so not cool. I've been doing so well with NOT thinking about how much I wanna read Clockwork Prince right now.

    I like your choice , though (I'm more of a Jem [for me] girl, myself, but I do love me some Will [for Tessa - and me, i'm greedy, but willing to concede Will to Jesse]-- especially with how you've cast him).

    Here's PiF's

  4. I love Gaspard! He's so gorgeous. I haven't read this but it's on my wishlist :D

  5. Gaspard would make a great Will! I had so much fun doing my MBB on Will. I used Nicholas Hault as my Will. Go team Will!

  6. Oh Will *pitter patter* no matter how many times I read those books, I cannot and will not ever not love Will Herondale!! He is just deliciousness topped off with saucy british accents and eye's that could melt you in place, teheheh. And I LOVE the actor you choose. Perfect choice!!

    My Book Boyfriend was a little late being posted, so if you have time check mine out :)

  7. Gaspard makes everything better! Great choice for Will :D
