Swoon Thursday (#36): Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter

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 Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter!


He meshed his lips against mine, infinitely tender, going slowly savoring every moment, as if he could draw out a response - or was willing to do anything necessary to earn one.

That's all it took.

The spark that had always burned between us exploded into a wild inferno. I thrust my tongue against his, and he thrust back. Neither of us was gentle. I clung to him with all of my strength, demanding more, taking more. Taking everything.

It wasn't enough.

I wasn't sure if I would ever get enough.

He moved his hands through my hair, fisting the strands at the strands at the base of my neck and forcing my head to tilt allowing him deeper access to my mouth. In that moment, he owned me.



I really enjoyed this book! And the swoons were even HOTTER in this book :D

  5. Dannnnng! The last swoon you did from this series had already convinced me! Now I just plain want to read these! Sigh. SO MANY BOOKS. Not enough time. Why can't someone pay me to be a professional reader?! ;)

    1. LOL! Well, that's one of the reasons why I did back-to-back swoons from this series. I think a professional reader/reviewer career is in order for this engineer... lol

    1. Haha, it totally is. There is no love triangle in this series, so far! Although you might *think* there is, in the second book... ;D

  9. Mmm a nice 'explosive' kiss! I was hoping you'd pick a swoon from this book. After reading your last swoon and now this one I'm think of starting this series. I have to admit I haven't read many Zombie books, but this one might change all that!!
