Top 10 Books That Will Make You Swoon

I found this topic really hard because there are a lot of types of swooning. There are books that make you swoon that are cute and light, sexy swoony, and of just plain swoony boys. So my list is a combination of all the different types of swoon. 

1 The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
So many things in this book made me swoon and it wasn't just Sean Kendrick (although he helped). I also swooned over the island, Puck's family, and the entire race!

2 Endless Knight by Kresley Cole (Ok, anything by Kresley Cole)
I was introduced to Kresley Cole last year and have since read most of the books she's written. Her books a definitely an example of sexy swooning. 

3 Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This is cute and light and swoon perfection *sigh* Etienne!

4 The Summer Series by CJ Duggan
I didn't want to pick just one book in this series so I picked them all! This is the perfect summer, beachy, happily ever after series.

5 Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
When I first read this prompt I immediately thought of Meant to Be! It is the perfect example of cute and light and oh so swoony.

6 The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead 
Actually, Adrian Ivashkov swooning should just have it's own section! I loved him in Vampire Academy and adore him in Bloodlines. 

7 The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
I wasn't Ash's biggest fan until this book. Having a story written from his POV demonstrated just how much he cared for Megan and that made me swoon.

8 Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
This definitely falls in the category of sexy swooning. I am firmly on Team Warner.

9 Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Oh Jem. I loved his inner turmoil with yin feng, and his devotion to Tessa. Very swoony. 

10 Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Do you like your swoons to be a little darker and more devious? Shadow and Bone is for you!


  1. Anna and the French Kiss is going to be on SO MANY LISTS. Which isn't surprising at all and is actually pretty darn impressive. I totally didn't realize that The Scorpio Races had so much swoony potential... Must read asap!

  2. Completely agree with Shadow and Bone! I wasn't 100% keen on Scorpio Races though. Brilliant list, Emily!
    My TTT :)

  3. I love Maggie so I can't wait to read The Scorpio Races. Something needs to fill the Raven Cycle void until book 3!

  4. I so have to agree on Clockwork Prince, that book and Will and Jem, oh my. I'm also interested in your thoughts on The Iron Knight, I'm reading my way through The Iron Fey series at the moment and don't feel much for Ash, so this had made me think I may come to like him a little more when I reach this book! This is a great Emily! :D

  6. I agree with you when it comes to The Iron Knight. Ash and his words for Meghan were enough to make my knees weak. I want to read the Summer Series and you made it sound so good that I want to get on with it ASAP :D Great list!
