So, I'm rereading the mortal instruments series. I have finished the first two books and I've already started the third book. (Side note: I've forgotten how infuriating this series is--I mean this in the best way possible.) I'm going to write a few of my favorite highlighted quotes here! All photos you see here can be found in this collection:

City of Bones

It was Alec who spoke first. "What's this?" he demanded, looking from Clary to his companions as if they might know what she was doing there.
"It's a girl," Jace said, recovering his composure. "Surely you've seen girls before, Alec. Your sister Isabelle is one."

"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.

"Do you remember back at the hotel when you promised that if we lived, you'd get dressed up in a nurse's outfit and give me a sponge bath?"
"Actually, I think you misheard," Clary said. "It was Simon who promised you the sponge bath."
Jace looked involuntarily over at Simon, who smiled at him wildly. "As soon as I'm back on my feet, handsome."

"In the future Clarissa," he said, "it might be wise to mention that you already have a man in your bed, to avoid such tedious situations."
"You invited him into bed?" Simon demanded, looking shaken.
"Ridiculous, isn't it?" said Jace, "We would never have all fit."
"I didn't invite him into bed," Clary snapped. "We were just kissing."
Just kissing?" Jace's tone mocked her with its false hurt. "How swiftly you dismiss our love."

Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?"
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
Dorthea roared at that. "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."
