My Book Boyfriend (#6): Jace Wayland

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme, hosted by Missie at The Unread ReaderWhat is My Book Boyfriend you might ask.  Well 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.

So seen as I (Jess) am such a fictional man perv, Donna has let this be my weekly post. But I'm to let her know when I do Ash of the Iron Fey series. So this weeks My Book Boyfriend, I wanted to do someone who we all love, and who is currently in the lead for our Battle of the everyones faveourite Shadowhunter Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments.

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

Age: 17
Eyes: Gold
Hair: Blonde
Physical Description: He has a slim, muscular build, and is about 5"11. He is covered in thin, silver scars from the years of applying various magical runes. 

(Actor-Alex Pettyfer)

"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." 

"What's this?"
"That's a mango." Simon stared at Jace. Sometimes it really is like Shadowhunters were from an alien planet.
"I don't think I've seen one of those that wasn't already cut up," Jace mused. "I like mangoes."
Simon grabbed the mango and tossed it into the cart. "Great. What else do you like?"
Jace pondered for a moment. "Tomato soup," he said finally.
"Tomato soup? You want tomato soup and a mango for dinner?"
Jace shrugged. "I don't really care about food." 

"I was born amazing." 

What do you all think of Jace Wayland? Have you read The Mortal Instruments?

Thanks to Missie for hosting this great meme.

Tune in next Wednesday for another installment of My Book Boyfriend.

I think I'm the only person in the world who hasn't read this series. I have them all on my bookshelf as well *hangs head in shame*

Oh Lesley, you really need to read this series. Jace is absolutely devine!

Carina said...

Oh God, thanks for the reminder that I still need to read this series! :D But seeing those pictures I really want to order the books now. Good thing I still need to get some books for my vacation in August. Spending some quality time with Jace seems like a good idea to me.

Alex Prettyface....sorry I mean Pettyfer is HAWT. He would make the best Jace. Love those quotes :)

Jess said...

"fictional man perv" LOL!!! Can I join that club?! I haven't read this series, but I love the name Jace. If these pics hadn't drawn me in, his name would!

Missie said...


"I was born amazing."

Yes, he was! I haven't read the books yet, but I'm already completely in love with Jace. I'm still upset over the fact that AP won't be playing him in the movie. :(

He would have been perfect for the part.

Book Passion for Life said...

Nic-LOL @ 'Alex Prettyface' that's a good one. I also like to use 'Ian Smoulderhalder' too. Lol.

Glad you girls all agree. And I'm sorry he isn't going to play Jace, he'd be perfect.

The Lovely Getaway said...

definitely wish Alex was playing him in the movie. I'm not too sure about the other guy :\ we'll see what happens.... all we can do is support and hope for the best!


Lisa said...

I love Jace. There is something about his cocky, badass self that makes me weak in the knees.

Bookish Brunette said...

I LOVE Jace!!!!

I so don't think this little boy is HOT enough to ooze sex appeal like he does... I wish they would have chosen a different actor... *tears*

Lieder Madchen said...

OMG I love Jace! I am such a Jace-nerd that I am representing him in the YA Bachelors month.

I love Jace. Really, who doesn't?

Here's mine:

Rubita said...

Alex Pettyfer is an excellent choice. Jace is definitely swoon-worthy. And he makes me laugh, which is always appreciated.
