This week, my swoon is from Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken!

I stood on my toes again, bracing myself against his strong form, and pressed my lips against the smooth skin of his cheek.

"For luck," I explained.

"Thank you," he said.

I waited until he had disappeared completely from the tent before moving. I sat down heavily on the bench, my face in my hands, as anger, love, and fear all fought to rise up inside of me.

The tent flap banged open. I brought my head up, and there was Wayland North.

I was on my feet in an instant, but he had crossed the distance between us in two long strides.


He pulled me to him, grasping my face between his hands. And then he was kissing me, kissing me so deeply, so fiercely that I could feel my toes curling my shoes. The world spun away, and it was just the two of us.

One of my favorite books of all time. I was rereading it this weekend and couldn't resist sharing this scene!


  1. "The world spun away, and it was just the two of us." SO BEAUTIFUL!!

  2. Ahhh Brightly Woven! I read this book way back in high school (ugh I feel old) and absolutely loved it. I'm still so sad that it wasn't a series, but I'm also kind of glad because what if the sequels weren't as good, you know? :)

  3. Eee, lovely swoon :D And YAY for re-reading a favorite book. <3 Sigh. I need to do more re-reads too :D
