Top 10 from Jace’s Lips

cityofbonesPsyched for City of Bones to hit the big screen! In honor of the newest paranormal blockbuster, I’ve compiled my favorite book quotes from the sexy, sarcastic hero of the series, Jace. Sorry, none of the mushy stuff, just the witty jabs that make reading these books so much fun. Enjoy and post your additions in the comments. Don’t forget to wear black on premiere day and show your #ShadowHunterPride.

10. “I prefer to think that I’m a liar in a way that’s uniquely my own.” – City of Ashes

9. “I can see why you like it here. There’s a thin layer of nerd over everything.” – City of Fallen Angels

8. “Watching me play Scrabble is enough to make most women swoon. Imagine if I actually put in some effort.” – City of Lost Souls

7. “I’m always so glad I have no idea what you’re vacantly chattering about. It fills me with a sense of peace and well-being.” – City of Fallen Angels

6. “I thought it was keep your friends close so you have someone to drive the car when you sneak over to your enemy’s house a night and throw up in his mailbox.” – City of Fallen Angels (Jace’s take on ‘keep your friends close, enemies closer’)

5. “…because going around and around in a dryer can be fatal. Whereas pasta is rarely fatal. Unless Isabelle makes it.” – City of Bones

4. “I guess blessings are easier to come by than I thought. Maybe I should ask for blessings on my mission against all those who wear white after Labor Day.” – City of Ashes

3. (upon being told that theoretically someone could be hotter than him) “Theoretically the planet could suddenly crack in half, leaving me on one side and you on the other side, forever and tragically parted, but I’m not worried about that, either. Some things are just too unlikely to dwell upon.” – City of Fallen Angels

2. “I don’t want to be a man,” said Jace. “I want to be an angst-ridden teenager who can’t confront his own inner demons and takes it out verbally on other people instead.” – City of Ashes

1. “Don’t order any of the faerie food. It tends to make humans a little crazy. One minute you’re munching a faerie plum, the next minute you’re running naked down Madison Avenue with antlers on your head. Not, that this has ever happened to me.”  – City of Bones
