Quote Unquote: City of Lost Souls

Quote Unquote is a series of posts of my favorite quotes from certain books. Okay, so it seems like all but one of these posts are using the Mortal Instrument Series, but I just can't help it! Here are some more great quotes written by Miss Casandra Clare:

~“I don't care," Clary said. "He'd do it for me. Tell me he wouldn't. If I were missing-" 
"He'd burn the whole world down till he could dig you out of the ashes. I know," Alec said.” 

~“You may have the worst timing since Napoleon decided the dead of winter was the right moment to invade Russia.” 

~“I never cared,” he said. “I wanted you anyway. I always wanted you.”

~“Does she still love you?"
"I don't think so," Magnus said dryly. "She wasn't very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I've got an eighteen year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn't."
Alec sputtered. "As the person being objectified, I ... object to that description of me.”

~“How was the Seelie Queen?"
"Same as usual."
"Raging bitch, then?"
"Pretty much.”

~“Jordan doesn't really care about the blood," Simon said now. "His whole thing is about me being comfortable with what I am. Get in touch with your inner vampire, blah, blah."
Clary slid in next to him onto the bed and hugged a pillow. "Is your inner vampire different from your...outer vampire?"
"Definitely. He wants me to wear midriff-baring shirts and a fedora. I'm fighting it."
Clary smiled faintly. "So your inner vampire is Magnus?”

~“I will have you know I practiced that speech. In front of a mirror before you got here."
"So what do you think it meant?"
"I'm not sure," Jace admitted, "but I know I look damn good delivering it.”

~“Don’t take this the wrong way, but you smell like Magnus.”

~“I stabbed you. With a massive sword. You caught on fire."His lips twitched, almost imperceptibly. "Okay, so maybe our problems aren't like other couples.”

~“Simon rolled his eyes. “It’s a good thing we know the person who’s dating Magnus Bane,” he said. “Otherwise, I get the feeling we’d all just lie around all the time wondering what the hell to do next. Or trying to raise the money to hire him by selling lemonade or something.”Alec looked merely irritated by this comment. “The only way you could raise enough money to hire Magnus by selling lemonade is if you put meth in it.”

What quote from this book is your favorite?


  1. Hahha, those were great quotes! I think I really like the ~“How was the Seelie Queen?"
    "Same as usual."
    "Raging bitch, then?"
    "Pretty much.”
