Swoon Thursday is a cool (more like HOT) meme the girls over at YA Boundcreated :) Here's how it works:
From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.
Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! We want to know :-)
This week's swoon comes from the first book in The Portal Trilogy, THE ONE by Heather Self!
"Now, I believe the best way for you to learn is immersion and since we can't teleport you all to France," he grinned at me, and there were once again sighs from the girls. "I'll be speaking only in French and will expect you to do the same. Is anyone here already proficient in the language?" I narrowed my eyes at him. He knew darn well I was fluent in French and several other languages. "Eveline, I believe your dad mentioned at dinner the other night that you are?"
What was he doing? "Umm. Yes-"
He shook his head at me. "En français s'il vous plait." More sighs from the class. I clenched my jaw and spoke rapidly. "Oui, Monsieur Smith. Je parle français. Qu'est-ce que tu veux?" Yes, Mr.Smith. I speak French. What do you want?
His eyes smoldered and caressed my face as he delivered his swift reply, "Je veux plus de toi que vous imaginez, ma petit lueur." (Translation: I want you more than you can imagine my little light)
My stomach dropped to my feet and my heart raced.
The scene made me completely melt while I was reading- it's one of my favourite moments in the book! Have you read The One yet? Did you just swoon from the excerpt above?? Be sure to let me know in the comments :) My review will be up soon, so be on the lookout! Keep Reading,
Your Y.A. Bookworm,
