The new book I've currently been obsessed with is The Clockwork Prince from Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices trilogy and...
OH MY GOODNESS FREAKIN' GRACIOUS.
Thank you, Cassandra Clare, SO MUCH, for creating a character as fabulous as Will! I can honestly say that I like him even more than Jace! Whyyyyyyy can't he be real??????????
- is very attractive--black-haired and tantalizingly blue-eyed-- and boy does he know it!
- muscular and strong--from all that shadowhunter training (incredibly adept with throwing knives...and hand-to-hand combat)
- super witty and sarcastic (I am a total sucker for guys like that!)
- comes across as cocky and arrogant, sometimes rude
- BUT is super self-sacrificing and really cares about the people he loves
- loves reading... and quoting books... (is that a deal-breaker or what?)

“Demon pox, oh demon pox
Just how is it acquired?
One must go down to the bad part of town
Until one is very tired.
Demon pox, oh demon pox, I had it all along—
Not the pox, you foolish blocks,
I mean this very song—
For I was right, and you were wrong!"
"Will!" Charlotte shouted over the noise, "Have you LOST YOUR MIND? CEASE THAT INFERNAL RACKET!
"They’re not hideous,” said Tessa.
Will blinked at her. “What?”
“Gideon and Gabriel,” said Tessa. “They’re really quite good-looking, not hideous at all.”
“I spoke,” said Will, in sepulchral tones, “of the pitch-black inner depths of their souls.”
Tessa snorted. “And what color do you suppose the inner depths of your soul are, Will Herondale?”
“Mauve,” said Will."
“For Tessa Gray, on the occasion of being given a copy of Vathek to read:
Caliph Vathek and his dark horde
Are bound for Hell, you won’t be bored!
Your faith in me will be restored—
Unless this token you find untoward
And my poor gift you have ignored.
“I feel myself dissolving, vanishing into nothingness, for if there is no one in the world who cares for you, do you really exist at all?”
"I thought him a pretty bit of poison to start with, but I have come around. There is a soul under all that bravado. And he is really alive, one of the most alive people I have ever met. When he feels something, it is as bright and sharp as lightning."
