Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Will Make You Swoon

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. A meme where you will post your top ten of everything that's been asked here, depending on the date. Today, books that will make you swoon. Here are my picks and this isn't in order.

01. The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines, #4) by Richelle Mead - I've mentioned my love for this series so many times but I don't think I'll ever get tired of it. I was torn between this and The Indigo Spell (book 3) but so many Sydrian (Sydney/Adrian) scenes here were swoon-worthy. Especially during Sydney's birthday :')

02. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - Who wouldn't swoon while reading AATFK? Almost every scene with Anna and Etienne in this book makes one's knees go jelly.

03. Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2) by Marissa Meyer - I just read Scarlet last week and I am definitely in love with Wolf and Scarlet. All that "alpha" thing was sweet and precious. They're a match.

04. Wait For You by Jennifer L. Armentrout (J. Lynn) - Same with TFH, I've mentioned this in a lot of memes and this is one of the few New Adult books I've loved so much.

05. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick - Every time Jase and Sam are together, I can't hide my grin. They're adorable together and Jase's little brother such a cutie that sometimes he puts the two in an awkward situation and it's funny.

06. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - Two people, a road trip, a love that was slowly built along the road. This quickly went to my favorites list and it's such a good book. A perfect one for a road trip too.

07. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger - I don't know but I just happen to swoon because Wes is actually a sweet guy despite the reputation people claim him to have? He's actually nice to Bianca and this book made me cry. Worth the jelly-like-knees and the watery eyes.

08. Fall From Love by Heather London - Another one of the books that I have loved very much. Carter and Holly's friendship/relationship was so wonderful to read and how the romance was built wasn't rushed.

09. Reboot (Reboot, #1) by Amy Tintera - This one's a Dystopian novel and it's by far, the romance in it was one of the sweetest ones I've read. Callum's just adorable and such a sweet guy and I can't blame Wren for falling for him.

10. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan - This one's perfect for Christmas. Short and heart-warming but at the same time, swoon-worthy too even though more than half of the books, Dash and Lily aren't even together...yet.

There goes ten of the books that made me swoon. I got a lot more in my list because I'm a big fan of the chick-lit type of books (though other genres are also capable of making me swoon). I want to add this so bad but I don't think I could consider it as a book. If you read The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa (and liked/loved it), you might want to check this one out(if you haven't yet). It's a short and bonus story (?) and it's so perfect for this Valentine's Day: An Iron Fey Valentine. How about you? What are the books that made you swoon? :)


  1. I only have 7 on my list! hahaahaa
    I really need to add more swoonable reading in my life!!! For instance: Rainbow Rowell! I haven't read any of her books yet but I hear/read that they will definitely make anyone swoon. I have just recently started reading more romantical stuff, so hopefully my list will be a lot longer in the future!
    Here's to more swoonable books :)

    1. I say yes to the Rainbow Rowell comment :D Especially Fangirl. I feel like everyone can relate to the character. Enjoy those romantic reads and thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks, Missie! And thank you for stopping by :D

  3. Awesome list! I love Wolf and Scarlet, Wren and Callum and Amy and Roger...and Dash and Lily. So many good choices! =)

    1. Ohhh~ someone who's read Reboot! I find it rare to see people who read it. It's actually good. Thanks for stopping by! And you're definitely not a Nobody, you're SOMEBODY :)

  4. Woop, woop! Syndrian forever! <3

    Again with the Anna and the French Kiss. xD I will never not see this book, I think. I definitely need to move that up my TBR. <3

    SCARLET. I liked Cress more. Have you read Cress yet? Just...read Cress and tell me if you like Thorne and Cress or Wolf and Scarlet more! xD

    Ah, I have Amy and Roger's Epic Detour! Haven't read it, but I will. It will happen. It will.

    Great list! Thanks for stopping by mine and commenting (:

    1. AATFK was just so cute I mean there were things that were kind of dragging and some things were wrong to do but I just can't seem to not swoon at the friendship that turned to something more.

      Oh I read Cress :D I did love it though. I think I love every single pairing in that series haha. Though Wolf had me in his, "She's my alpha." line and Cress thought that she was his brightest star.

      Amy & Roger's Epic Detour's also good :D and it's a road trip so <3

      Thanks for stopping by, too!!

  5. I've only read Dash and Lily's Book of Dares on this list, and boy was it sweet! :D
    I like how you've chosen more varied genres for your list too, it's different to what I've seen around :)

    1. And I feel like it's going to be sweeter if one reads it during the holidays <3
      Oh I have swooned over a lot of books aside from contemporary, which happens to be the capital of the swooning feeling, and they sure didn't let me down ;)

  6. Hey great list!!.. I liked DUFF and My life next door a lot, though i didnt add them on my list. And yes I totally agree about George.. "His bed is really comfortable, and he never pees on it" is epic!!

  7. What a fun list! I've officially decided I need to pull My Life Next Door off of my bookcase and read it, pronto!

    And Scarlet ... oh my goodness. Have you gotten a chance to read Cress yet?? I just finished yesterday and could have passed out from swooning, I'm telling you! **sigh***

    Here's my swoon worthy reads, if you'd like to take a look!
