Swoon Thursday (#85): Stray by Elissa Sussman

Swoon Thursday is a hot meme hosted by the fabulous ladies at YA Bound!

- From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering

- Try to make the swoon excerpt 140 characters (or less), if you are going to tweet about it. Use the hashtag #YABOUND when tweeting

This week, my swoon is from Stray by Elissa Sussman!

Suddenly Thackery took her hand. "Your fingers are warm," he murmured, pressing her hand to his chest. "Can you feel that?" And she could. She could feel his heart beating beneath her palm.

Aislynn raised her eyes to his. They were so very green. She saw herself in them, and it was like staring into the mirror she had always wished for, where the reflection was winsome and fine.

Then he kissed her, and it was better than dancing, better than summer, better than bread. All of her seemed to be turned inside out in one glorious swoop.

This is one of the sweetest passages of the book... seriously though, this book has so many gorgeous moments!


  1. Better than bread... well that's certainly got me curious. I'm glad you're still enjoying this book.
