Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Will Make You Swoon

Top 10 Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish

This weeks topic:
Swoon Worthy Books/Scenes

We all have those book boys (or girls) that we want to just pick off the pages of our books and stick into our pockets, right? Oh tell me I'm not alone in this . . . No? Okay, good. Moving on. Instead of sticking with just books that are flat out swoon worthy, I picked certain scenes that enlist all those wonderful fainting spells.

So in no particular order, my top ten six books/scenes that will make you swoon:

1) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Levi and Cath are a slow burn relationship, but they started out as friends first - which I feel is rare in a NA novel. First off, he's a pretty amazing guy and you can tell he genuinely cares for Cath. Even before anything with them really happens, he's honest and upfront with her. He takes an interest in things that she has an interest in. The scene that gets you: when they're reading The Outsiders.

2) The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. I just finished this book the other day and it was just . . . too . . . cute! It was the perfect read and the relationship between the two main characters is that amazing realistic relationship where you can't help but swoon. The scene that gets you: when they're talking in the kitchen at Xander's.

3) Embrace by Jessica Shirvington. Now why this series has a love triangle, it is one of the best love triangles - and one of the more believable - that I have read. Between the three of them - no, not like that! - there are so many amazing swoon worthy moments through out the series that we would be here for quite awhile. Just get ready to swoon and swoon hard. The scene that gets you: when Violet and Lincoln are walking home from the club.

4) Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard. Daniel. Oh, Daniel. When will you and Eleanor just get it together? When? They have that slow burn relationship, where you know they have feelings for each other, but have yet to act on it. A kiss here and there does not count! When these two are together though, I'm just so hopeful and excited! The scene that gets you: standing underneath the lamppost after the dynamite scene.

5) Dare You To by Katie McGarry. Ryan and Beth came from different backgrounds and their relationship started out as a bet, but through everything, Ryan was just amazing. Even though they both are having troubles, and they're troubles are at opposite ends of the spectrum, as they become closer you can't help put root for them. I definitely could not put this book down once I started reading it. The scene that gets you: when it's raining out by the pond and what happens with the cologne bottle.

6) Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. Specifically Wolf and Scarlet. Even from the beginning, Wolf held my heart. I don't know what it was about him that instantly pulled me to him, but I never not liked him. I'm so excited to read more about him and see how he and Scarlet play out. The scene that gets you: When Wolf tells Scarlet that he would rather have died and betrayed them, than lived and betrayed her.
