Swoon Thursday (#52): All That Glows by Ryan Graudin

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 All That Glows by Ryan Graudin!


Richard leans down, closing the gap between us, drawing me into him. Or lips meet, smooth and seamless. There's a nameless desire in the way he kisses me. I feel it rising in me as well, swelling like clear, triumphant notes. He pulls me close, his kiss growing deeper, a never-ending crescendo.

This - this is something else. It reaches deep inside me. Sparks my soul.

I really enjoyed this book! It's a mixture of historical fiction and fantasy, which is very cool because those two are my two favorite genres!
