Swoon Thursday {29}

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 Thursday comes from The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by  Laini Taylor! I just finished reading this one a few days ago, and I have to say that although it was very different, I liked it ! 


Photo I posted on my Instagram while reading ! :)
"So you are a child of love. It seems right, that you were made by love."                                      
She had never thought of herself in that way, but after he said it, it struck her as a fine thing , to have been made by love, and she ached for what she had lost, in losing her family. "And you? Did your parents love each other?"                                                                                                        
She heard herself ask it , and was overcome by the dizzying surreality of the circumstance. She had just asked a ****** if his parents loved each other.                                                                                                                                                                                                            
"No," he said, and offered no explanation. "But I hope my children's parents will."                                                                                                     
Again he lifted her hand so that she could circle under the bridge made by their arms, and again her horns got in the way, so they were briefly parted. Turning, [insert spoilery character name here :P] felt a sting in his words, and when they were facing each other once more, she said, in her defense, "Love is a luxury."                                                                                                             
"No. Love is an element."                                                                                                                
An element. Like air to breathe, earth to stand on. The steady certainty of his voice sent a shiver through her, but she didn't get a chance to respond....

This is one of those scenes where you just feel the intensity between these two characters! I always sigh at the line, "Love is an element." ! Have you read Daughter of Smoke and Bone? What do you think about the sequel? I haven't read the second book yet and I'm curious to know what you guys thought of it. Keep Swooning!

Your Y.A. Bookworm,
Caitlin <3
