This Tuesday's theme is...

Top Ten Books That 
Will Make You Swoon

I'm not talking about sexy, steamy books. I'm talking about books that will give you butterflies and flutterflies, the feels, make your knees weak, your heart ache--serious swoonage. So, in celebration of Valentine's Day, here are fourteen books that are pretty high on the swoon scale. (Please note that this listed started out at twenty-eight books. This was HARD.)

*For series, I'm just mentioning the first book. For some, the swoon is upped later in the series. *eyes Crown of Midnight*

"'Did you really believe, that first day, that we were meant to be together?' I asked him. He looked at me and then said, 'You're here, aren't you?'"

"I choose you over everyone."

"I told you, everyone understands a quest."

"These stay the same. Remember that when you look at me. Remember it's me. Please."

"I swear that boy can't function without you, not even at lunch."

"You're stuck in my brain like my own blood vessels."

"Is it possible for home to be a person and not a place?"

"Sometimes I can't see myself when I'm with you. I can only just see you."

"'I don't want to lose you,' he whispered again. And I didn't want to be lost."

"I want everyone to meet you. You're my favorite person of all time."

"...still the sight of him feels like a homecoming, like a song I used to know but somehow forgot."

"You make me feel normal."

"'You have nothing left.' 'He has me,' I say."

"She lifted her eyes to his face, and found his gaze lined with silver. 'Get up,' was all he said.
