This week, my swoon is from Warped by Maurissa Guibord (which I am re-reading for the ten billionth time)!
He pulled her to him, lowered his head, and kissed her.
With the touch of Will's lips to hers, Tessa's world shrank. There was nothing beyond the small, dark space between them, nothing beyond the sensations that enveloped her like a wave. Like an ocean. She was sinking and yet weightless as his breathh mingled with hers, his mouth molded softly to her own. She twined her arms up and around his neck and felt herself drawn even more tightly to him.

Check out the summary (from Goodreads):
Tessa doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But there's something weird about the dusty unicorn tapestry she discovers in a box of old books. She finds the creature woven within it compelling and frightening. After the tapestry comes into her possession, Tessa experiences dreams of the past and scenes from a brutal hunt that she herself participated in. When she accidentally pulls a thread from the tapestry, Tessa releases a terrible centuries old secret. She also meets William de Chaucy, an irresistible 16th-century nobleman. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together, they must correct the wrongs of the past. But then the Fates step in, making a tangled mess of Tessa's life. Now everyone she loves will be destroyed unless Tessa does their bidding and defeats a cruel and crafty ancient enemy.
Guys. You do not UNDERSTAND how much I love this book. I read it back in 2011, when it was published. It's one of those that you read, re-read, leave for a while, and pick up periodically to read again and again. I seriously love this book so much!
Interesting how the names of these protagonists - Will and Tessa - are the same as the ones in The Infernal Devices, right? Except, this book came out a year and a half BEFORE the first Infernal Device book came out. But still, something to notice.
Next week, I promise I will have a new book that is NOT adult fiction! I'm currently reading an adult book, and I'd rather use a YA book that I am reading, but not for the first time.
Anyway! What book made you swoon this week?
