This week, my swoon is from Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin!
He was going to kiss her again. She could see it in the slight five-degree tilt of his head, in the way he drew closer.
What did it matter? The sun was shining and not everything was a lie.
In less than forty-eight hours she was never going to see him again.
Couldn't she just have this? A Feeling that wasn't sadness or anger or guilt or weight? A good-bye that wasn't all tears and silence and screaming?
He leaned into her. She let him.
This kiss was much like the last, with the world moving around them and his lips telling a story to hers. It tasted like one of the Greeks' epic poems: Warring. Heroic. Vast. Full of so many loves and births and deaths.
- ARC, pages 329-330
I LOVED this book! Alternate historical fiction novel, and a truly good one!
