Swoon Thursday (#20): Insomnia by J.R. Johansson

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 Insomnia by J.R. Johansson!


(Parker's POV)

"In the last month, we'd become like magnets, and I couldn't keep flipping over trying to keep us apart anymore.

I tilted my head down and gently brushed my lips against hers. The mist around us churned with warmth as her fingers curled in my hair and she kissed me back, pulling me closer. Any will I had left dissolved.

We became lost in each other. I moved my moth against hers slowly, enjoying the moment. She scratched the back of my neck with her fingernails, and it was impossible to imagine ever willingly letting go. I wanted to kiss her forever."

- eARC, 80%



I absolutely LOVED this book! One of my few five-star-rated books! My review will be up within two weeks. It's one of the best debuts of 2013 I've read so far! Insomnia is very unique, and it's solely in the male's point-of-view! GAH - I loved this book.

What made you swoon this week? Let me know in the comments, and leave a link to your blog so I can comment back! :)

  1. I'm not sure about the cover. It's kinda scary.
    The swoon's great though. A kiss that goes on forever. Yeah, who wouldn't want that.
    So glad you liked the book. I'm going to check this one out.

    1. The book itself isn't scary! Coming from the girl who REFUSES to see rated r scary movies.

      Thanks, Marilyn!
