Top 10 Tuesday: Books That Make Me Swoon!
I’m not really a swooner. I’m more of an awkward “Oh holy books that guy is hot/cute/sweet/funny I MUST HIDE IMMEDIATELY LEST HE NOTICE ME AND MY REMARKABLE AWKWARDNESS” type of girl. I wish that I was kidding. Safe space, y’all. *gestures*
Ahem. Oversharing aside, here are some books that make me imagine being swoony and adorable relationships that I ship. (Click the titles below the image for GoodReads links!)
#1: Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door – seriously, if I could leap into the book and steal Cricket and then age him appropriately, I would do it. Lola would survive.
#2: Anne’s House of Dreams – I love Anne and Gilbert’s relationship. They are my top ship. SAIL ON ANNE AND GILBERT.
#3: Under the Never Sky – the series. Because Perry. And Roar. And Perry. And Roar.
#4: The Bitter Kingdom – HECTORRRRR
#5: Crown of Midnight – CHAOLLLL
*Sidenote: does anyone think that hector and Chaol are just so similar that it’s insane? I love them both. For the same reasons. I love them.*
#6: The Sweet, Far Thing – the cave of sighs scene. You know the one.
#7: Simply Irresistible – One of the few New Adult books with an … emphasis on sexy times that actually had a good plot and that I liked.
*Another sidenote: I hate this cover. There’s no snow in that book. It’s just generic and crappy. OH LOOK THEY MADE A HEART. ROMANCE. I’M A LADY, I MUST LIKE HEARTS AND ROMANCE.*
#8: Attachments – I love Lincoln and his shyness and his sweetness.
#9: Where She Went – I loved Adam and his struggle. A man whose whole heart is fractured because of first love and who lets that love go because it’s what’s best for HER. No matter how much it hurt him or made him sad.
*Yet another sidenote: The book was about Adam. Why is Mia the cover model? Imma have to get on a rant about this later.*
#10: Pushing the Limits – I just finished Dare You To and Crash Into You this week, and neither of those love stories held a candle to Noah and Echo. I love their struggles, each of them dealing with crap in their lives, but they’re stronger together.
