The Mortal Instruments Book 1 City of Bones
by Cassandra Clare
“Sarcasm is the last refuge of the imaginatively bankrupt.”
“When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?”
(I don’t like this Book Cover)
I read this book a while ago, way before the rumors of a TV series started (at least to my knowledge). And I actually enjoyed them. I’ve scene the first two episodes of the show, and well… I have no opinion…(Well, I do, but that’s for another post). For the record I think the movie was awesome.
I don’t remember making a review about this book. But you should know that I read those books in no time (meaning the whole series). I just loved them. I haven’t read Lady Midnight yet and I’m not sure I will, because I’m just not in the mood to get back on that series again. But maybe, someday, I’ll read it.
Anyways Cassandra Clare’s writing can be really sarcastically funny at times and that’s what this post is about. There are so many funny things the characters say in the books that I couldn’t help myself.
So here are My Top 5 Funniest Book Quotes from The Mortal Instruments City of Bones.
“Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?’
Jace said, “Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself.”
…”At least,” she said, “you don’t have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland.”
“Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
“Is this the part where you start tearing off strips of your shirt to bind my wounds?”
“If you wanted me to rip my clothes off, you should have just asked.”
“You’re an idiot.”
“I’ve never claimed to be otherwise.”
“Don’t.” Clary raised a warning hand. “I’m not really in the mood right now.”
“That’s got to be the first time a girl’s ever said that to me,” Jace mused.”
“Are you trying to get run over by a cab?”
“Don’t be ridiculous. We could never get a cab that easily in this neighborhood.”
There are wayyyy more, the book is full of them. If you haven’t read the books I highly recommend them.
Also if you have read it, send me any quote you think it should be in this list.
