After long considerations, I'm going to jump on waggon and start doing Top Ten Tuesdays again. I love seeing other people's posts and it's so fun to discuss all the books and authors that make our top tens on different lists. Today we're discussing books that make us swoon and it was so hard to choose from. Here are some of mine:
Easy by Tammara Webber. Can we all take a moment and appreciate the amazingness that is Lucas? Ha, when I think back to it, one scene makes Lucas sound like a creep (where he says that he used to watch Jacqueline before when he spotted her on campus and stuff), but without that one dialogue moment, everything else about him is perfection. He has brains, he’s brave, thoughtful, has great artistic skills and knows his material arts. He makes the best swoon moments in Easy.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. Heh. Wolf and Scarlet. ‘Nuff said.
Anything by Krista and Becca Ritchie. I just love everything they write and their concepts, jokes, character building—everything is amazeballs. Their books have some of the best swoon moments ever! Nick can agree with that wholeheartedly. I'm even gtting swoons from people who don't have their own book, so, what does this tell you? :D
On Dublin Street series by Samantha Young. Braden Carmichael—my favorite man of Scottish origin. He is absolutely swoon-worthy and Samantha sure knows how to write her scenes with the right dose of wicked humor and all things smexy. Aman approves, I'm sure :)
The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. If you’re looking for a sweet romance and self-searching, pick this up! There are lots of swoon moments by Caymen and Xander.
ANYTHING by Colleen Hoover. I think we have established that Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors. Ever. My favorite first non-kiss is written (in Hopeless and Losing Hope) by her and it’s amazing how a non-kiss can make you feel ALL THE FEELS. Then there’s Will Cooper and his slams. My favorite lines by him being:
“If I were a carpenter, I would build you a window to my soul. But I would leave that window shut and locked, so that every time you tried to look through it all you would see is your own reflection. You would see that my soul is a reflection of you.”
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. If I wasn’t team Chaol, I would be team Dorian. That’s how good SJM is with swoon, ladies and gents. She doesn’t only give you the romance swoon, but just as Veronica Rossi, she gives you friendship swoon and bromance swoon. Even the villain swoon lol. The puppy scene, the books scenes, the ball scene, the falling asleep scene, the training scenes, the hug scene at the very end with a small thank you—everything in this book is made of swoon.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Last but not least, Cricket Bell, my lovelies. Most of you love Étienne St. Clair, but my heart and respect belongs to this young inventor with a heart of gold. He is made of perfection and gave me so many swoon moments that I almost couldn’t handle it. The stars people!!! THE. STARS.
Which books have made you swoon? Do we have any in common? :) Let me know!
