25 Days of Book Boyfriends + Giveaway - Will Herondale

Welcome to my stop on the 25 Days of Book Boyfriends tour, hosted by Lovin' Los Libros, Starbucks & Books Obsession and Readers Live a Thousand Lives.
Every day until December 25th, a different blogger will feature a different book boyfriend on their blogs. You can check out each stop on the tour here.

And my book boyfriend is:
Will Herondale!!!

You can meet Will by reading The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare. Believe me, you definitely want to meet him! 


Physical Description: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 throat was perfect. He looke«s like every fictional hero she'd ever conjured up in her head.”

Will is:

·         Cocky and Sarcastic

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

Are you implying that shreds of my reputation remain intact?" Will demanded with mock horror. "Clearly I have been doing something wrong. Or not something wrong, as the case may be."He banged on the side of the carriage. "Thomas! We must away at once to the nearest brothel. I seek scandal and low companionship.”

"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."

·         A Book Lover

It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them.”

“Sometimes, when I have to do something I don't want to do, I pretend I'm a character from a book. It's easier to know what they would do.

             A Good Friend

Will rose slowly to his feet. He could not believe he was doing what he was doing, but it was clear that he was, clear as the silver rim around the black of Jem’s eyes. “If there is a life after this one,” he said, “let me meet you in it, James Carstairs.” 
“There will be other lives.” Jem held his hand out, and for a moment, they clasped hands, as they had done during their parabatai ritual, reaching across twin rings of fire to interlace their fingers with each other. “The world is a wheel,” he said. “When we rise or fall, we do it together.”

Will and Jem by Cassandra Jean 

Tess, Tess, Tessa.

Was there ever a more beautiful sound than your name? To speak it aloud makes my heart ring like a bell. Strange to imagine that, isn’t it – a heart ringing – but when you touch me that is what it is like: as if my heart is ringing in my chest and the sound shivers down my veins and splinters my bones with joy.

Why have I written these words in this book? Because of you. You taught me to love this book where I had scorned it. When I read it for the second time, with an open mind and heart, I felt the most complete despair and envy of Sydney Carton. Yes, Sydney, for even if he had no hope that the woman he loved would love him, at least he could tell her of his love. At least he could do something to prove his passion, even if that thing was to die.

I would have chosen death for a chance to tell you the truth, Tessa, if I could have been assured that death would be my own. And that is why I envied Sydney, for he was free.

And now at last I am free, and I can finally tell you, without fear of danger to you, all that I feel in my heart.

You are not the last dream of my soul.

You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.

With hope at least,
Will Herondale”

He bent to put his cheek against hers. His breath against her ear made her shudder with each deliberately spoken word. "I have wanted to do this," he said, "every moment of every hour of every day that I have been with you since the day I met you.”
