It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic: Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon
It was easy and hard all at the same time to come up with my book boyfriends again but luckily, I have a shelf on Goodreads called “All the Swoons” so I already had a good reference going! It was really hard to cut some out, but when it came down to it, I could only pick ten. So here we go, in a sort of “minimalist poster” style… Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon!
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) – Marissa Meyer
Swooning for: Captain Carswell Thorne
Where She Went (If I Stay #2) – Gayle Forman
Swooning for: Adam Wilde
Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2) – Leigh Bardugo
Swooning for: Sturmhond
Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
Swooning for: Etienne St. Clair

I love so many of the books on your list, but my main takeaway is: aaaahhhh these posters/graphics are seriously so awesome! I loved that I’d read so many of these books and knew the significance of the object you chose to feature. So talented 🙂
Oh my goodness, Cress! I just finished that book a day ago and I have been swooning ever since. Marissa Meyer has completely outdone herself with that book. And Thorne? Knock me over with a feather, that one could.
&&FanGirl, & Anna! Oh they’re just lovely. 🙂 Great list!
I intended to leave a comment about the books, but seriously, those posters are AWESOME. It was a great idea to do minimalist for the titles! And it turned out lovely.
Did you create these posters? STOP BEING SO AWESOME! I love them. Like I want that Siege & Storm poster in my room. I also wouldn’t mind Sturmhond in my room. A girl can dream, right? 🙂
Hahaha yes I did! 😀 Thank you so much for the enthusiasm 🙂 🙂 🙂
Haha I wouldn’t mind Sturmhond either. I mean… Just love him. Swooooon.
I’m kind of ashamed to admit that I haven’t read Where She Went yet… I really loved If I Stay, so I really need to get on that! I do own it though… just need to move it up in my to read pile.
There are SO many books I have to read. Gah! I can’t do it fast enough! YES to Anna. I left that one off because I felt like it was a given, but now I want her on my list! Haha. I have never heard of Confessions of an Angry Girl. I’m intrigued. And I am so excited to get to Ask Again Later! and Book of Broken Hearts… Great list! I must go read all the things.
I was totally swooning for Sturmhond in Siege and Storm!!! I seriously thought I was the only one, haha. But he was so swoony 🙂
I AM STARTING SIEGE AND STORM TMRW 🙂 I forgot to update you on Twitter about S&B when we were chatting, but YES I loved it obviously 🙂 I’ve been Sturmhond is just AHHH!!! But I am partial to The Darkling still *hides*. Also Anna. yes to Anna. And hopefully sometime in the near future I will be able to get my hands on The Book of Broken Hearts. I love your images! Your TTT posts are always so creative and pretty <3
I can’t believe I forgot Sturmhond! Gahhh I love him so much! Almost as much as I love the Darkling haha.
ZUZ! MIK!!! *heart explodes from cuteness and love* Also, I can’t have any lists about swoons or book boyfriends or favorite romances without Etienne. I just can’t do it at all. I need to read Confessions of an Angry Girl, too. I know you loved Jamie! I was so mad at myself for forgetting Josh Bennett! But YES TO HIM.
I loved Thorne in Cress, but Wolf is the one who has my heart in that series. I need to meet this Sturmhond guy. And The Darkling. Basically I need to drop everything and read S&B right now. I also really want to read Sea of Tranquility. Excited to hear that there is a swoony guy. 🙂
Excellent choices. I haven’t read Cress yet but I’m a big fan of Thorne, good to know he gets better. And I love your images, they’re fantastic!
I’d kind of given up on novellas, but if Night of Cake and Puppets was able to make you swoon, maybe I should give novellas another go!
I just picked up Cress today and I’m pumped to be reunited with Captain Thorne! He’s the reason I enjoyed Scarlet as much as I did 🙂
I’m loving your graphics here! And your list inspired me to ad a few more books to my TBR!
Thanks, Natalie! Hope you found some new good ones to read! 🙂
We have some of the same choices. I don’t know how I forgot about Josh Bennett, lots of shame on me for that one. I think I’m going to put Confessions of an Angry Girl on my spring TBR list, I’ve wanted to read it forever and I feel like you mention it a lot. I even have it waiting for me on my Kindle!
Hahah I totally do mention it a lot. Curious to hear what you think!!!
I can’t wait to read Night of Cake and Puppets. I love Mik and Zuzana!
Ooh I’m so excited for you to read it! It was just so stinkin’ cute!
I keep hearing such great things about ‘Cress’. I guess I gotta get around to it. 🙂
Oh, it’s SO good! I can’t wait for you to read it!
Look at you with the cool graphics! I loved many of these books so I know I’ll like the ones I haven’t picked up yet. Maybe I’ll start with Ask Again Later.
Thanks for sharing your swoony faves!
Of course I agree on Josh Bennett and Levi (just realized he doesn’t have a last name. I almost called him Levi Strauss, which wtf, brain?). Such perfect choices for their graphics too! I really like that special touch.
Hahaha I LOLed at Levi Strauss. Too funny 🙂
Thank you! I had so much fun making the graphics!
I am officially electing you and me the co-presidents of the Jamie Forta fanclub. SO many swoons with that boy. Dying for the next book 🙂
Count me IN. I’m anxiously awaiting book three too! 🙂
Oh, I forgot about The Book of Broken Hearts! That was so swoon-worthy! And Levi… I swear anything Rainbow writes is swoony! Great list and love the minimalist covers!
Thanks, Candice! Levi. He was just SO adorable. I loved him in that book!
Oh my. I finished Cress the other night and fell even more in love with Captain Thorne. I adored him from Scarlet but he really upped the game in Cress! Great list!
YES exactly!! I loved him in SCARLET but SUPER swooned for him in CRESS! <3
LEVI. THORNE. Excellent, as usual. Excellent. I love for Levi you have a Starbucks logo! That made me laugh. I’m glad I’m reading The Books of Broken Hearts sometimes soon-ish, since I’ve seen you have it on so many list!
Haha thank you! I was trying to think of what I could use for the book as a whole and then I thought more of Levi and it was just perfect! 😀
Oooooh do read that one soon! I’m scared but I hope you love it! Please love it 🙂
