You probably get really tired of hearing me say this, but this TTT topic was nearly impossible for me. I reach books because of the swoons. I love books because of the swoons (most of the time. As in, almost all of the time). So choosing just TEN books I swoon over when quite literally ALL of my favorite books are swoony is so hard. My entire archive of read books to choose from is swoony, really. But I did the best I could.
The Distance Between Us. Pivot Point. Both have incredibly wonderful, swoony, cuter-than-puppies romances. I hear there's an additional swoony couple in Pivot Point's sequel, Split Second
Another recent read that had me literally, physically swoon. I swear at one point I clutched the book to my heart and sort of sagged sideways across the couch.
Chapter Fifty-Five. And Fifty-Eight. And all the chapters. And oh my god if Mafi ever wrote a New Adult novel the world would just burst into flames of swoons and lust.
WES AND MAC. The cutes! The swoons! The slow build! The partnership! The trust! The cute moments!
Jase Garret, you can crawl onto my roof any day. Any time. He and Sam are so adorable together, and reading about their love story makes me swoon.
The thing I love best about Tammy's book are the ships. I mean, besides magic and plots and shenanigans and kick ass female heroines of all kinds. But you know me; I read for ships, and I'm not ashamed of it. Tamora Pierce has written three of my all-time OTPs, not to mention the most seminal kissing scene of my childhood.
Nobody brings the contemporary romance like Katie McGarry, and Dare You To is my favorite of hers. Ryan and Beth are so different, but their romance makes so much sense, and THE SCENE IN THE BARN. I went weak in the knees reading that scene.
Percabeth Percabeth Percabeth. Percabeth Percabeth. Percabeth.
It's a way of life.
"The kiss obliterated her.
It was like coming home or being born or suddenly finding an entire half of herself that had been missing."
This is a liiiitle bit of a cheat, since I've only read Catching Jordan, but I completely adored Catching Jordan and have heard nothing but the best and swooniest things about her other books from friends whose swoony tastes line up with mine.
Ohhhh, do I ship the ship in Scarlet and Lady Thief. I recently read and LOVED Lady Thief, book two, and trust me, this is where the swoons really come in to play. The kissing scenes... I can't even.
