Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
There is nothing quite like finding a book and swooning over it. While it’s always nice to swoon in real life, sometimes books do the trick!
Here are my some of my favorite swooniest books:
The Crown of Embers – I skipped over The Girl of Fire and Thorns because Hector didn’t make a huge impression on me. When I got to Crown of Embers though… yowzah! He brought all the swoons and quivering bodices. He only gets swoonier as the series goes on! But it’s not really just him that makes this book swoony; it’s the tension and building relationship between the two. It’s how you’re torn between wanting them to be together and wanting Elisa to grown on her own.
The Iron Fey series – Ash is honestly what makes this a swoon-worthy series. It’s one of my favorite series that totally made me all a flutter. What made me swoon is just how deep the love ran through the series. It was hard at times but even when it tore at my heartstrings I still felt wonderful about Ash and Meagan and their slow build relationship – well, as slow as it can be!
Chapter 62 of Unravel Me– I know this is supposed to be books that make you swoon, but the entire Ignite Me series is swoony. This chapter however is simply panty-melting hot.
Crown of Midnight – The romance in this book is top-notch, but not the main focus. Which is why I think this one brought on the swoons for me. Small scenes that were so perfect gave me a chance to sigh and realize how lovely it was before the ass-kicking started back. The scene where Celeana and Chaol dance? Le sigh!
The Goddess Test series – Okay, this is one of those examples where it’s not so much the book that makes you swoon as it is the love interest. Henry, or Hades, is simply the most swooniest. He’s dark and brooding and, according to his first wife, Persephone, is quite… blessed with endowments (still can’t see what this girl was complaining about). While the series is, in my opinion, good, what really made it perfect for me was Henry and just how dreamy I found him.
Catching Fire – There wasn’t a chance this book wouldn’t end up on my list. There’s not a ton of swooning in it, but little moments that made my heart flutter. Thank you Peeta. 🙂
Okay, I’m gonna stop here because I am getting a serious case of the vapors! Happy Valentine’s Day!
