Man Crush Monday: James “Jem” Carstairs


Well it has been a while since I did one of these but I’m so happy to bring back Man Crush Mondays. If there’s any hot (literary) guys you want to see in the rotation let me know in the comments. For today, however, my Man Crush Monday is none other than Jem Carstairs from The Infernal Devices.

When it comes to The Infernal Devices a lot of people swoon over Will Herondale. And yes he’s cute and brooding and blah blah blah but let’s be real, Jem is the real catch here.

Jem is sweet, kind, a little shy, and a gentleman. He takes everything in stride and it’s really hard to make him angry. If you somehow piss off Jem you know you messed up real bad.

Moreover, he’s also cute. His “disease” gives him silver hair and eyes but they work really well on him. Plus, he’s just so gentle and you know he’ll never hurt you and do everything he can to take care of you.

Seriously, Jem is the best in every way. He’s also a little funny and he can play the violin beautifully. Plus, being a Shadowhunter he’s a skilled fighter and he’s strong.

Jem is the whole package and I’ll be on Team Jem always. The end.

“I can offer you my life, but it is a short life; I can offer you my heart, though I have no idea how many more beats it shall sustain. But I love you enough to hope that you will not care that I am being selfish in trying to make the rest of my life – whatever length – happy, by spending it with you.”
