This week, my swoon is from Breathe by Sarah Crossan!
"You're alive," I say, allowing my weight to fall back into my toes and our noses to touch. And that's when it happens: he kisses me. I expect him to pull away, to keep the kiss platonic, but he doesn't; his lips stay locked to mine until I feel them part slightly and Quinn breathes into me. I reach my arms up, fold them behind his neck, and press my body into his. Finally he steps back and looks at me again.
"You have green eyes. I never noticed that," he says.
"Yes," I say. "They've always been green."
And he kisses me again.
- ARC, page 257
I loved this book! I can't believe I waited so long to read it. I have the second book, and I'll be reading that on soon!
I think that I would like Quinn.... although, he should've known what colour eyes she had by now!! lolReplyDelete
Here's My Swoon!

I like how she thinks it's going to be platonic, but he's after more than that :-)ReplyDelete

Lindy@ A Bookish Escape
You must read it! Quinn is yummy ^_^Delete
Hee Hee! Sweet Kiss! I just can't believe he didn't notice her eye color. But I'm one of those people who sees a person's eyes first. That's what hooks me. :)ReplyDelete
Right?! I look at hair and eye color ;)Delete
Great swoon! Glad you liked it.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you liked this one. I haven't been able to decide weather or not to read it after seeing some mixed reviews. But your making me want to read it now, especially after that swoon!ReplyDelete
I think you should! And yes, the swoon is definitely the decider ;)Delete
This book is probably my favorite science-fiction / dystopian ever! I'm reading the sequel now and it's just as good. Bea -- she totally reminds me of Hermione from Harry Potter. Love her! Great quote -- I so swooned at that part.ReplyDelete
COOL! That is so awesome. I remember - I think you told me you don't read a lot of dystopias. I can totally see that! And me too - love this scene :DDelete
Um...that was awesome!ReplyDelete
