Länge sedan jag svarade på en fråga i 30 days of books-utmaningen så tyckte det var dags nu.
Dagens fråga är:
Day 17 – Favourite quote from your favourite book
Hade lite svårt att välja bara en bok. Och ännu svårare att bara välja ETT citat. Det går ju inte. Först så tänkte jag välja citat från Själens osaliga längtan, men eftersom jag var lite för lat för att bläddra igenom hela boken efter några bra citat så valde jag istället City of Ashes som helt klart är en annan favorit just nu. Den innehåller ju SJUKT många roliga citat och de flesta kunde jag enkelt hitta online. Så jag väljer att skriva ner alla mina favoriter eftersom jag inte bara har ett.
Så, here we go.
“That does it," said Jace. "I'm going to get you a dictionary for Christmas this year."

"So you can look up 'fun.' I'm not sure you know what it means.”
“We came to see Jace. Is he alright?"
"I don't know," Magnus said. "Does he normally just lie on the floor like that without moving?”
"No, I'm just a very naughty boy. I do all sorts of bad things. I kick kittens. I make rude gestures at nuns.”
"Mom. I have something to tell you. I’m undead. Now, I know you may have
some preconceived notions about the undead. I know you may not be
comfortable with the idea of me being undead. But I’m here to tell you
that undead are just like you and me … well, okay. Possibly more like me
“Is standing by the window muttering about blood something he does all the time?" asked Simon.
"No," Jace said. "Sometimes he sits on the couch and does it.”
“I'll just have them change the entry in the demonology textbook from
'almost extinct' to 'not extinct enough for Alec. He prefers his
monsters really, really extinct.' Will that make you happy?”
“Isabelle drifted over, Jace a pace behind her. She was wearing a long
black dress with boots and an even longer cutaway coat of soft green
velvet, the color of moss. "I can't believe you did it!" she exclaimed.
"How did you get Magnus to let Jace leave?"
"Traded him for Alec," Clary said.
Isabelle looked mildly alarmed. "Not permanently?"
"No," said Jace. "Just for a few hours. Unless I don't come back,"
he added thoughtfully. "In which case, maybe he does get to keep Alec.
Think of it as a lease with an option to buy."
Isabelle looked dubious. "Mom and Dad won't be pleased if they find out."
"That you freed a possible criminal by trading away your brother to a
warlock who looks like a gay Sonic the Hedgehog and dresses like the
Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?" Simon inquired. "No,
“I've got a stele we can use. Who wants to do me?"
"A regrettable choice of words," muttered Magnus.” (Hahaha, klockren!)
