My Book Boyfriend: Jace Wayland

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader, all about fictional boys who make us swoon. This week I've chosen Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I was expecting big things from Jace after he amazingly won nearly all the categories and was crowned the ultimate YA Bachelor in the YA Bachelor awards on Amber's blog, Down the Rabbit Hole. That's pretty big, considering he beat out Dimitri Belikov, Peeta Mellark, Adam Wilde, Etienne St Clair, Edward Cullen... yep, you can see why I was expecting to have my socks rocked off. After reading the books, I have to say he doesn't beat the aforementioned boys for me (sorry, Jace fans), but I did enjoy him - certainly enough to admit him into my man harem.What I liked most about Jace was his intelligence, wit, passion and strength. OK, his cockiness was kinda hot too. I pictured him as Alex Pettyfer.

Swoon-worthy Quotes

"It was almost as if he hadn't wanted to kiss her: His mouth was hard on hers, unyielding; then he put both arms around her and pulled her against him. His lips softened. She could feel the rapid beat of his heart, taste the sweetness of apples still on his mouth."

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

"'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.'"

"'I know it's wrong - God, it's all kinds of wrong - but I just want to lie down with you and wake up with you, just once, just once ever in my life.'"

  1. Okay, after reading these quotes I'm 105% sure I need to read this series ASAP. It's been on my list, I just haven't got around to it yet. I know, I know. I'm like the only girl who hasn't read it!

    That Alex Pettyfer is way too good looking for his own good!

  2. Amazing quotes! I'm a huge Jace fan myself. I love his cocky confidence...it's very sexy!

  3. Great quotes! I'm currently reading City of Ashes and can't wait for more Jace! Thanks for visiting my bf today! :)

  4. I think that is why I haven't read TMI series yet, I'm afraid the Jace hype has ruined me.

    Still, I totally wish Alex P has gotten the role of Jace. I think he would have been perfect for the role.

  5. First off let me say that when I was reading this series I totally pictured Alex Pettyfer as Jace. He is so swoon worthy, although currently I am reading the Vampire Acadmey series and I'm not too sure he can beat out Dimitri Belikov, I'm head over heels for that boy, lol.

    But that last quote you have, is my favourite out of all of them. If that doesn't make any girls heart flutter that I don't know what will. lol.

    Great bf today! It's my first time posting a book boyfriend, so stop by later if you have time and check it out :)

  6. Alex sure has grown into a hot guy hasn't he? Unfortunately I'm not a huge Jace fan.

  7. I haven't read the series yet, but the first 3 books are on my tbr. Oh and I can see Alex as Jace even though I haven't read it. The picture on the cover looks like him! So, you know I agree. Hm... I need to read these so I can steal Jace from you. Uh, you didn't just read that.... ;D

  8. Those quotes took my breath away! Even if he didn't look like Alex Pettyfer, whoever said that to me could take me in his arms with absolutely no resistance.

  9. Okay, so I really do love Jace, but I don't think he could ever beat out Dimitri from VA. I love Adrian from VA, but even he can't beat Dimitri. However....all that in mind I still LOVE Jace. He was one of the first book boyfriends I read about and I will always have a place for him in my fictional hottie section of boys i'd like to be accosted by :) I also think Pettyfer looks just like the image in my head. He's just not allowed to talk, lol!! Jace's cockiness is one of my very favorite things about him, too!!

  10. ohhh those quotes!!! and those pictures! its such a shame Alex pettyr is a douchbag
    Even though their are bad sections in this book i must read it just for the Jace/Clary moments!

  11. Ahh Jace. How do I love thee...Alex is totally great for Jace and I wish he'd been cast. Nice pick this week Belle :)

  12. ~drools~ Alex Pettyfer! He is so purdy!!! YUM. And then you have those delicious Jace quotes. YUM. Love this week's pick Belle :)
