Swoon Thursday (#54): Death Sworn by Leah Cypess

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 Death Sworn by Leah Cypess!


(Today's excerpt is very short! I know, atypical of me. I like to mix things up.)

"I'm sorry," she whispered. "I'm sorry I didn't tell you -"

His hand touched her cheek, a faint nudge. That was all the encouragement she needed to lift her face so his mouth could land on hers. She clung to him desperately, trying to find what she always found in his kisses: forgetfulness.

  3. It might be a short swoon but it sure is sweet! The small tender moments can sometimes show more emotion than anything else. And Naomi's right the cover is gorgeous, I think it's that aqua colour in the middle!

    1. I agree! You should definitely look up this series. And I did know! I have not read them - probably because secretly, I don't want the rest of the series to ruin the first book for me (I don't know what the next books are like, but I LOVE book one, and don't want it to be ruined in any way lol).

  5. I think I just read a review for this book that was positive, and it may have been yours actually! But I really would like to read more fantasy and I like the quote!
