Why So Serious: The Mortal Instruments Edition, vol 2

To prepare for the upcoming release of City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare, I have decided to share my favourite quotes/dialogues that made me chuckle from the first three books in The Mortal Instruments. This is a series of posts I have titled 'Why So Serious?-TMI Edition'. I thought it would be nice to remember why we love this series so much and start getting even more excited for City of Fallen Angels.

So here goes...

From City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

1)      "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 undead are just like you and me … well, okay. Possibly more like me than you. " –Simon

2)      "We need to talk. All of us about what we're going to do now."
"I was going to watch Project Runway." -Jace

3)      “ Are you all right? Your eyes are crossing." –Simon

4)      "Look on the bright side," said Simon, "If they need a human sacrifice, you can always offer me. I'm not sure the rest of you qualify anyway."

5)      “That’s sweet,” said Maia. “That he loves his sister like that.”
“Yeah,” Simon said. “It’s precious"

6)      "He did," Alec confirmed. "I've never seen anything like it."
"I've never seen anything like this." Jace lifted a ten-inch dagger from the floor. One of Isabelle's pink brassiers was spread on the wickedly sharp tip. Isabelle snatched it off, scowling.

7)      "You have something on your neck.”
“Looks like a bite mark, what were you doing out all night, anyway?”
“Nothing. I went walking in the park. Tried to clear my head.”
“And ran into a vampire?”
“What? No! I fell.”
“On your neck?" –Poor Alec

8)      "What I actually want to call you is a hell of a lot more unprintable than your name" -Clary

9)      "If you're texting Magnus to say 'I think u r kewl' I'm going to kill you"  -Isabelle

10)   "That's your truck parked up by the factory isn't it?" Magnus pointed. "It's awfully butch for a bookseller."  -Magnus Bane
I love a good laugh and TMI series is full of them. Hope you enjoyed. Till next week.

Happy Reading Everyone!

  1. I just love Simon. Probably even more than Jace, dare I say it.
