Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Make Me Swoon
The Broke and Bookish topic today is swooning? Have I not talked about this enough already? Ha! I guess not. And in case you missed it and would like to see my swoony guest post from last week, I might as well milk it a bit more and give you the link yet again... check it out over at Book Bloggers International where I discuss swooning in depth!
But today, I'll list some of my favorite swoony books. Hmmmm, how to narrow it down.
Top Ten Favorite Swoony Books
(Wait, I must say that sometimes I get the books and movies mixed up. Is it the BOOK that's swoony or the movie? Or both? Take that into consideration!)
1. North and South. While Richard Armitage and the pulling off of that last scene is incredible, I still maintain that the book itself is also swoony. "Look back! Look back at me!" Poor Mr. Thornton.
2. Through the Ever Night has one of my favorite swoony kissing scenes ever. The build up was perfect.
3. The Legend series. Day is just an around wonderful swoony character. I'm not sure what it is... he has that swagger I talked about in my post last week, and also that kindness and gentlemanliness. Truly, he has it all.
4. Unravel Me has some very swoony moments. And we aren't supposed to be enjoying them, because Warner is the bad guy. Right? He is, isn't he?
5. Both Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door have swoony boys. The first one an exotic British dude, and the other an ordinary yet perfect boy next door. I swoon for them both.
6. The Sky is Everywhere. It's been awhile since I read this one, but I wrote a character connection post awhile back where I listed all the wonderful swoony bits about it/him.
7. Blackmore by Julianne Donaldson...there's this leaf fight and then a moment afterwards. Swoon. Also, not to metion all the propoals this book has, fake for one, real for the other. Swoon.
8. There's a very swoony horse riding scene in The Scorpio Races that I just died over.
9. There are parts all over in The Queen of Atolia that could make a person swoon. The intensity of that relationship is just... I can't even... just...CRAZY.
10. "In vain I have struggled, it will not do." Yep. That.
