Swoon Thursday (#136): The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas

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 Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas!


"Kiss me."

He took a pretty glass jar from the cabinet. The jar was filled with sweets. He opened the jar and held it out toward her. "Try one."

She put a green-striped bonbon in her mouth. And when he kissed her, the bonbon melted with a burst of freshness: mint, basil, and a hint of silver moss. But it was he who made her pulse race: his hands in her hair, the sinew of his arms beneath her fingertips, the scent of Pears soap that  still clung to his hair and skin.

- ARC, pages 125-126




I love this series so much! Quite possibly one of my favorite series ever. Catch my review of The Immortal Heights on Sunday!

    1. I've had it for a while, so I know what you mean. Since I'd gotten it months ago, I've been terrified of reading it! Glad to see others enjoy it though, that has helped my anxiety. :D
