Top Ten Tuesday (6): Books That Will Make You Swoon

(Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. To join in on this weekly meme, visit the blog here)

Top Ten Books What Will Make You Swoon
I'm not really a swooner, but do internally squeal and wish very hard for some romantic book moments to happen irl. These are the top ten books with those moments.

1. Clockwork Angel (or rather, the entire Infernal Devices trilogy) by Cassandra Clare
Between Jem's musical talent and sweetness and Will's passion for books and Tessa, this series certainly had me 'swooning'. Of course, there is a whole lot more to the steampunk fantasy series than the romance, these two Shadowhunters are at the top of my list of swoon-worthy guys in YA.

2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Levi Levi Levi. That's all I have to say.

3. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
I've yet to read Ignite Me, so it's going to have to be Unravel Me that is the most swoon-worthy of the series (or should I pick Destroy Me?). Nah. Unravel Me. Chapter 62.

4. Boy Meets Moy by David Levithan
If you haven't read it yet, I'll try not to spoil, but the lengths Paul goes to to get Noah back are just adorable and completely swoon-worthy, in my honest opinion. It had me giddily grinning nearly the entire way through.

5. The Collector by Victoria Scott
Can bad boys make you swoon? Um, yes. Dante Walker proves this (but maybe don't tell him that - his ego is inflated enough).

6. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
This series about angels and part-angels really got to me. And I'd say even quarter angels are swoon-worthy, wouldn't you?

7. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
I mean, Julian, man. He and Lena are just too adorable to not deem swoon-worthy. Sorry (not sorry), Alex.

8. Tight Knit by Allie Brennan
Just... Lachlan. All right, maybe he wouldn't appreciate being called swoon-worthy, but we don't have to tell him.

9. Switched/Torn/Ascend (Trylle trilogy) by Amanda Hocking
It's a series, so it counts as one. I mean... Loki.

10. Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
I'm more of a Puck fan myself, but I can't deny a more swoon-worthy performance than Ash's declaration to Meghan, and everything he goes through to be with her.


  1. Unearthly nearly made my list too :-) I really love that trilogy. Pandemonium is a great choice!

    1. Unearthly was so great. Boundless had me in tears

  2. A few of these are on my list as well, and some I've never even heard of but I'm definitely going to have to look them up!

    Here's my list if you'd like to see who I picked :)
    Must Love Books

    1. Your list is great! I love seeing overlaps on TTT lists. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Boy Meets Boy! I loved Infinite Darlene. And you're right - the romance between Paul and Noah is adorable. I read this book for the first time when I was sixteen and reread it again this year (ten years later!) and I loved the book just as much now as I did back then. I'm really glad to see it on your list this week. Great TTT! :)

    1. To this day I still cannot decide between Jem and Will. I kept flipping. I think I do lean a little more towards Jem, though. Today, at least.

    1. I just need to finish up with Cress and then I'll be reading Ignite Me. The longer I wait, the more terrified I am of spoilers!
