Mundane Monday #22

.... Jace, on the other hand, looked like the sort of boy who'd come over to your house and burn it down for kicks. "I like the dress," he said, unhitching himself from the wall. His eyes ran and up down her lazily, like the stroking paws of a cat. "It needs a little something extra, though."

"So now you're a fashion expert?" Her voice came out unevenly- he was standing very close to her, close enough that she could feel the warmth of him, smell the faint burned scent of newly applied Marks.

He took something out of his jacket and handed it to her. It was a long thin dagger in a leather sheath. The hilt of the dagger was set with a single red stone carved in the shape of a rose.
..... She slid the dagger into the outside pocket of her backpack.

She looked up from closing it to find Jace watching her through hooded eyes. "And one last thing," he said. He reached over and pulled the sparkling pins out of her hair, so that it fell in warm and heavy curls down her neck. The sensation of hair tickling her bare skin was unfamiliar and oddly pleasant.

"Much better," he said, and she thought this time that maybe his voice was slightly uneven too.

  1. Well, First comment never win but someone as to start the action!
    The quote I chose is from City of Glass!
    " "I don't have a reason to lie to you. Not now." Jace's gaze remained steady. "And quit baring your fangs at me. It's making me nervous."

    "Good," Simon said. "If you want to know why, it's because you smell like blood."

    "It's my new cologne. Eau de Recent Injury." Jace raised his left hand. It was a glove of white bandages, stained across the knuckles where the blood had seeped throught." -p.141

    I just laughed out loud when I read it!
    I follow the blog and I'm a forum sbuscriber.

    Thank you!

  2. Favorite quote from the MI series? Oh man there are so many of them. But the one that sticks out most to me would be from City of Glass pg 209. That whole chapter is my favorite!

    "Clarys breath caught 'You said you just wanted to be my brother.'"

    "'I lied,' he said. 'Demons lie, Clary. You know, there are some kinds of wounds you can get when you're a Shadowhunter- internal injuries from demon poison. You don't even know what's wrong with you, but you're bleeding to death slowly inside. That's what its like, just being your brother.'"

    "'But Aline-'"

    "'I had to try. And I did.' His voice was lifeless. 'But God knows, I don't want anyone but you. I don't even want to want anyone but you.'"

    Oh how Jace can make a grown married women swoon! <3

    I follow your blog and I'm a forum member.

  3. Hi girls!!
    One of my favorite quotes is:
    "There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then."
    I'm a blog follower,and I'm here with my fingers crossed hoping to win this one!!

  4. So hard to choose, but I think this part was really funny in City of Ashes:

    Simon spread the pamphlet open. "Here I'll practice on you." He cleared his throat. "Mom. I have something to tell you. I'm undead. Now, I know you may have some preconceived notions about the undead. I know you may not be comfortable with the idea of me being undead. But I'm here to tell you that the undead are just like you and me."

  5. One of my favorite quotes is:
    "There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then." Jace always makes women drool. I'm a blog follower via GFC. Please enter me.

  7. Here are two of my favorites:

    "Don't order any faerie food," said Jace, looking at her over the top of his menu. "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," he added hastily, "that this has ever happened to me." -Jace pg. 192 City of Bones

    "Yes," Jace said, unable to help himself, "I was trained to be an evil mastermind from a young age. Pulling the wings off flies, poisoning the earth's water supply--- I was covering that stuff in kindergarten. I guess we're all just lucky my father faked his own death before he got to the raping ang pillaging part of my education, or no one would be safe." -Jace pg. 79 City of Ashes

  9. Here is my quote:

    "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."

  10. I love this part in the Book!!! I love all the Books. However one part or quote out of City of Bones is "I said his Poetry was terrible. It sounds like he ate a dictionary and started vomiting words at Random." ~Jace,City of Bones

    I am a blog follower; or

  11. I agree with you Andrea!! I love that part in the book!!! Thanks for sharing that one!!

  12. Gosh, there's a lot of lines that i love. But here's one I think got me a bit teary-eyed:

    “I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there’s a life after that, I’ll love you then.”

  13. Just one? Oh, this is hard. Um, ok, I managed to narrow it down to three.

    "I can't untie myself from you, Clary--not my heart or my blood or my mind or any part of me. And I dont want to." - Jace, Epilogue: Across the Sky in Stars, pg. 531

    "The Angel brought you back."
    "Because you asked him to. You could have anything else in the world, and you asked for me."
    "But I dont want anything else in the world. I love you. I would do it again. I would always ask for you." - Jace and Clary, Chapter 20: Weighed in the Balance, pg. 498

    ". . .thinking of the way Alec had grabbed onto Jace the moment he's seen him in the Hall, because that was what you did with family when you'd been worried about them, you grabbed them and held to them and told them how much they'd pissed you off, and it was okay, because no matter how angry you got, they still belonged to you." - Clary, Chapter 10: Fire and Sword, pg. 254

    - Ronna

  14. this one if my favorite...

    "What do you want me to tell you? The truth? The truth is that I love Simon like I should love you, and I wish he was my broher and you weren't, but I can't do anything about that and neither can you! Or do you have some ideas, since you're so goddamned smart? - Clary, p. 181 of City of Ashes.

    The relationship of Clary and Jace can be summarized in this line. One look at it and you know what's going on. I love it because even though it may seem a little harsh, it's also desperate. There's longing and passion in Clary's words.

  15. Ahh! My favourite quote is everything that comes out of Jace's mouth!!!

    but... I'll have to go with this:
    "I am a man" he told her, " and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone, woman, and bring me something brown." -Jace

    I also love:
    "Jesus!" Luke exclaimed.
    "Actually, it's just me," said Simon. "Although I've been told the resemblance is startling."

    I'm a follower. :)

  16. A lot of my favorites are already used so i'll use something different. I always get a kick out of this one!

    "Stay away from my blades. In fact, don't touch any of my weapons without my permission."

    "Well there goes my plan for selling them on ebay," Clary muttered.

    "Selling them on what?"

    "A mythical place of great magical power."

    And of course where the name of your blog came from:

    "It means 'Shadowhunters: Looking Better in Black Than the Widows of our Enemies Since 1234."

    Thanks so much for the chance to win this, that necklace is awesome!


  17. So many of my favorites have been mentioned already. Reading through all of these really, really makes me want to go back and read the entire fantastic series again. Love all these quotes & scenes!

    Two of my favorites:

    Jace (CoB): "Well, you'll have to wait until tomorrow. I'm out of commission.(points to his shirt) Look. Jammies." <--- I laugh every time I think of Jace saying "Jammies", no matter how many times I've read that line!

    From CoG (this moment is so beautiful & always brings tears to my eyes): "With their hands clasped like children in a fairy tale, she fell asleep beside him in the dark."


  18. One of my favorites is:

    "Jesus!" Luke exclaimed.
    "Actually, it's just me," said Simon. "Although I've been told the resemblance is startling."

  19. There are so many funny ones, but since I'm a romantic at heart... My absolute favorite is...

    “I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there’s a life after that, I’ll love you then.”


    But it is really hard to choose only one!
