Swoon Thursday (#13): The Collector by Victoria Scott

Swoon Thursday is a hot meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at YA Bound!


- 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

- Try to make the swoon excerpt 140 characters (or less), if you are going to tweet about it. Use the hashtag #YABOUND when tweeting


This week, my swoon is from The Collector by Victoria Scott!


I tug her against me and smash my mouth over hers. I feel everything - her hair between my fingers, her skin pressing against mine. And her lips. I feel those soft pink lips freeze for a moment beneath my kiss. And then I feel her relax, opening her mouth and mirroring my movements. 



***A note. I realize that two other bloggers used a swoon from this book. I chose this swoon a few weeks ago, but I didn't want to post it until after the official release date. When I re-read the book for the tour earlier this week, I created this post with this swoon. I am sorry for that.***

Check out my review HERE.

This book was fantastic! And though the swoons came later on, they were perfect :D

So, what made you swoon this week?
