Swoon Thursday is a cool (more like HOT) meme the girls over at YA Bound created :) 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 Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin! I read this book a couple of weeks ago and I'm still completely in love with it. Here's a swoony-swoon ;)
"I could kill you."
"Then I'd die happy."
I opened my eyes and focused on his. "I'd be happier without you," I lied as convincingly as I could.
"Too bad." Noah's mouth curved into the half-smile I loved and hated so much, just inches from my naval.
My head was foggy. "You're supposed to say, 'All I want is your happiness. I'll do whatever it takes, even if it means being without you.'"
"Sorry," Noah said. "I'm just not that big of a person." His hands traveled up the side of my jeans, up to my waist. The pads of his fingertips grazed my skin just underneath the fabric of my shirt. I tried to steady my pulse and failed.
"You want me," Noah said simply, definitively. "Don't lie to me. I can hear it."
"Irrelevant," I breathed.
"No, it isn't irrelevant. You want me as much as I want you. And all I want is you."
My tongue warred with my mind. "Today," I whispered.
Noah stood slowly, his body skimming mine as he rose. "Today. Tonight. Tomorrow. Forever." Noah's eyes held mine. His stare was infinite. "I was made for you, Mara."
Oh how I love this book so! Have you read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? What did you think about this week's swoon? Be sure to let me know in the comments below! Keep Swooning!
