This week, my swoon is from Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi!
"He smiled and leaned down, kissing her softly, tenderly. She knew she should step away. This was a risk, but she didn't care about anything except him just then. She woved her arms around his neck and parted his lips with hers, stealing a taste of him. Tenderness could wait for another time."

According to Goodreads, I've been "currently reading" this book since January 20th... UGH. That's a month ago, since I started! And I've read so many books in between then and now! I am determined to finish this book, but the problem is, I've reached page 180, and things are, well, not happy.
And I've been swamped with schoolwork. Between colleges, scholarships, projects, essays, and finishing class curriculums to start studying for my lovely eight AP exams, I have had barely any time for anything!
So, this isn't exactly a new swoon on my part, but currently, I'm not reading anything (unless you count this one, which I started ONCE, a month ago, and never picked up again).
So anyway! What made you swoon this week?
Great Swoon! Love the cover of this book too!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about being busy. If it dosen't rain, it pours.

I love this book so far. And you are SO right :DDelete
Urg I hate those books that you just can't finish .. I have a book too that I've been reading since Feb 9th and I just don't want to continue but I have to! I can't not finish a book (I think I have a bit OCD on that part ;) )ReplyDelete
But, nevertheless I like the swoon AND the cover. :-)
Thanks for stopping by my blog at www.theobsessivereader.com
I can't not finish a boo either! I don't like DNFing books.Delete

Thank you! You ROCK <3
I read this book and I know what you're talking about when you say " not happy"! What happen at the end of this book had me crying my eyes out! Love your swoon Alyssa! :)ReplyDelete
OH MY GOSH! Crying is a good way, or bad?! I'm so scared - I've heard CRAZY things about the end. That *may* have been a factor in me not finishing yet lol. Thanks, Debbie!Delete

Sweet Swoon! If you've been reading it for a month, I take it your struggling to get through this book. I hate when that happens, but for the most part I'm the same way. Determined to get through every book I dart. Good luck :)ReplyDelete
