Swoon Thursday (#105): The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace

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 Storyspinner by Becky Wallace!

Before she could question propriety or decorum, Johanna did what felt right. Rising up on her toes, she brushed her lips over Rafi's.

It was a simple kiss, the merest contact. She pulled back, face flaming, heart skipping, but Rafi didn't let go. Kissing her once, twice. Nervously, the hungrily.

If the men watching murmured, she didn't notice. If Pira, lurking in the shadows growled her distaste, Johanna didn't care. His arms were around her waist; her fingers were in his hair.

- eARC, 96%


  1. This sounds like a forbidden kiss. Got to love those kind.

  4. I had a feeling you would pick this quote. :P Loved that moment! I just wish they had outright communicated their feelings a little bit more.

    1. LOL! And I agree. But communication is lacking in all teenage/young adult lives - in literature and in real life.

  5. WHAT. 96%? SAD FACE. Not a single kiss before that? HOW MEAN, lol :D But hoping there is tension and such before. <3 Anyway. Gorgeous swoon sweetie :D I'm pre-ordering this book. <3 Excited about it :)

    1. LOL! I don't pick the swoons in order or anything. I just pick my favorites :) I hope you love this one when you read it, Carina - you SHOULD read it!
