Why So Serious: The Mortal Instruments Edition Vol 3

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 Glass by Cassandra Clare

1)      "I am a man" he told her, "and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone woman, and bring me something brown."

2)      "Is this the part where you say if I hurt her, you'll kill me?"
"No" Simon said, "If you hurt Clary she's quite capable of killing you herself. Possibly with a variety of weapons."

3)      "I think he’s handling it with grace. A lot of teenage boys would sulk, or lurk around under your window with a boom box."

4)      "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 cologne. Eau de Recent Injury." Jace raised his left hand.

5)      "Well, I can always fix it up with something sparkly." Magnus said, holding a sparkly headband.
"Resist the urge Alec, resist the urge." Simon said.

6)      “I have a fetish for damsels in distress.”
“Don’t be sexist.”
“Not at all. My services are also available to gentlemen in distress. It’s an equal opportunity fetish,”

7)      "So technically, even though Jace isn't actually related to you, you have kissed your brother."

8)      "I thought I'd lie on the floor and writhe in pain for a while, it relaxes me" – Jace

9)      Sebastian: YOU'RE Ragnor Fell the warlock?
Magnus: Well, I'm certainly not Ragnor Fell the exotic dancer

10)   “And I’m sure my blood is fan-tastic.”
Simon set the empty flask down on the arm of the chair by the bed. “There’s something very wrong with you,” he said. “Mentally, I mean.”
Just two more weeks guys, isn't that exciting? Well till next time.

Happy Reading Everyone!


  1. haha! I am just so impressed at how well Cassie does humour. Very well done.

    So excited for CoFA!! The only problem is of course all the finals and papers in the way. Unfortunately, I may not be able to read this until much later after the release date. Argh.

  2. I won't be able to read CoFA till the end of April, beginning of may. Makes me sad. I love the humour, I am looking forward to more of it!


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
