This week, my swoon is from Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken!


I stood on my toes again, bracing myself against his strong form, and pressed my lips against the smooth skin of his cheek.

"For luck," I explained.

"Thank you," he said.

I waited until he had disappeared completely from the tent before moving. I sat down heavily on the bench, my face in my hands, as anger, love, and fear all fought to rise up inside of me.

The tent flap banged open. I brought my head up, and there was Wayland North.

I was on my feet in an instant, but he had crossed the distance between us in two long strides.

"What-?"

He pulled me to him, grasping my face between his hands. And then he was kissing me, kissing me so deeply, so fiercely that I could feel my toes curling my shoes. The world spun away, and it was just the two of us.

One of my favorite books of all time. I was rereading it this weekend and couldn't resist sharing this scene!

  2. Ahhh Brightly Woven! I read this book way back in high school (ugh I feel old) and absolutely loved it. I'm still so sad that it wasn't a series, but I'm also kind of glad because what if the sequels weren't as good, you know? :)
