This week, my swoon is from To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han!
My heart is pounding like a million trillion beats a minute as I scoot closer to him. I bend my head down and press my lips against his, and I feel his jolt of surprise. And then he's kissing me back, open-mouthed, soft-lipped kissing-me-back, at first I'm nervous, but then he strokes my hair in a reassuring way, and I'm not so nervous anymore. It's a good thing I'm sitting down on this ledge, because I am weak in the knees.
[...] I lean into him and kiss him. He starts to run his fingers through my hair, and it feels so nice I can't think straight. It's better than getting my hair washed at the salon. I move my hands down his back and along his spine, and he shivers and pulls me closer. A man's back feels so different than a girl's back - more muscular, more solid somehow.
- ARC, pages 314-315

GUYS I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH! I'm honestly not much of a contemporary person, but this book was SO GOOD. I mean, it got five stars from me. FIVE STARS. From ME.
