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 Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum!
(Note: I took out the boy's name! The mystery must remain alive, given the specific premise of this book.)
"Three? I don't have a three. My head is still spinning."
"I have one."
"Go for it."
"Three: I want to kiss you, like, very much, please."
"You do?" I ask.
"I do," he says, and so I turn toward him, and he turns toward me, and even though we are in this random IHOP and our table is full of the bizarre array of uneaten foods [redacted] has ordered to allow us to keep our table for the past three hours - pancakes, of course, but also pickles and apple pie - everything falls away.
It is just him and me, [redacted] is [redacted] is [redacted] and Jessie is Jessie is Jessie, ad his lips touch mine.
But sometimes a kiss is not a kiss is not a kiss. Sometimes it's poetry.
- ARC, page 325
That is the last scene, the last lines of the book. I found that I couldn't not pick a scene from this book, even though there was a lack of PHYSICAL swoons in this book. It was very swoony in a non-physical way, this story. I ADORED this book. Seriously, go see how much I loved it. I'm not a YA contemporary person (usually) but this book was quite good!
Oh my, you had to wait until the end to get to this. Now I'm intrigued.ReplyDelete
YES! Given the premise of the book, it makes sense... but yup, all the way at the end. :)Delete
Oh my gosh I am so excited for this book! I'm glad you found it swoony, even if there isn't much physical stuff ;) I'll definitely check out your review, Alyssa!ReplyDelete
