My Book Boyfriend (#2): Will Herondale (Clockwork Angel)

Hey all, and welcome to this week's installment of My Book Boyfriend, a weekly meme hosted by Missie over at The Unread Reader. If you'd like to play along, it's simple! Just share one of your latest literary crushes; you know, give his stats, a picture of what you think he might look like, and some of his quotes that make you melt into a heap on your couch, chair, or wherever you read. :) For more details, check out the rules, then get your boyfriend posted! :)

My book boyfriend rests in the pages of Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel. He's snarky, overconfident, and just might be hiding a side that would make us all swoon! He's Will Herondale!

Will Herondale Description:
  • He's a Shadowhunter
  • He's stubborn, opinionated, and overly confident in himself
  • He's got dark blue eyes and shaggy hair
  • Marks cover his body so he can perform his duties as a Shadowhunter
  • He's hiding something from Tessa
  • His goal in life seems to be to infuriate everyone he comes in contact with.

"Will leaped down from the ladder and landed lightly in front of her. 'You do believe everything I say, though, don't you? Do I seem unusually trustworthy to you, or are you just a naive sort?'"


"Will sighed and leaned against one of the posts of the bed. 'I had such plans for this evening. The pursuit of blind drunkenness and wayward women was my goal. But alas, it was not to be. No sooner had I consumed my third drink in the Devil than I was accosted by a delightful small flower-selling child who asked me for twopence for a daisy. The price seemed steep, so I refused. When I told the girl as much, she proceeded to rob me.' 'A little girl robbed you?' Tessa said. 'Actually, she wasn't a little girl at all, as it turns out, but a midget in a dress with a penchant for violence, who goes by the name of Six-Fingered Nigel.' 'Easy mistake to make,' Jem said."


"Do you normally turn up in gentlemen's bedrooms in the middle of the night? If I'd known that, I would have campaigned harder to make sure Charlotte let you stay."


"'Well, she's not responding to my advances,' he observed more brightly than he felt, 'so she must be dead.'"


"'You're right,' Will said, 'I shouldn't underestimate my own skills. Should Tessa make a mess of things, I'm sure I'll be able to fight our way through the slavering vampire masses to freedom.'"


"Gabriel's face darkened. 'Is there anything that isn't a joke to you?' 'Nothing comes to mind.' 'You know,' Gabriel said, 'there was a time I thought we could be friends, Will.' 'There was a time I thought I was a ferret,' Will said, 'but that turned out to be the opium haze. Did you know it had that effect? Because I didn't.'"

Oh, how I love a sarcastic, snarky, sexy guy! Will is so yummy sounding, while at the same time I just want to smack him! You know he's got a soft side just hiding all the snark...and I can't wait to find it! My Will is played by Adam Gregory.

What do you think? Who's your book boyfriend this weekend? Leave your link and share those cuties! :)


  1. *fall on floor* That is the perfect Will! (or even Ash, the Winter Prince)


    I almost forgot what a charmer Will is. Of course any woman who doesn't respond to his advances must be dead. LOL
