Swoon Thursday (#114): An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

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 An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir!


I lift myself up on my toes, and his face comes down at the same time. His lips are soft, softer than I could have imagined, but there is a hard desperation behind them, a need. This kiss speaks. It begs. Let me forget, forget, forget.

His cloak falls away from me, and my body is against his. He pulls me to his chest, his hands running down my back, clasping my thigh, drawing me closer, closer. I arc into him, reveling in his strength, his fire, the alchemy between us twisting and burning and melding until it feels like gold.

- ARC, page 371




So much love for this book... there better be a sequel! :D

  5. I think I'm gonna wait to see if there is a sequel before I read the first book, but I'm glad there are so many positive reviews! That quote indeed is quite swoony. :D Just hesitant about the love squarish situation.

    1. Now that I can understand. I almost didn't want to read this book buuuuut, since the pub sent it, I did. And square? I don't see a square happening. Triangle, maybe, but not square. Someone misinformed you.
