Swoon Thursday #05



Swoon Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by YA Bound. 
From the book we're currently reading or one we've just finished we're supposed to show you "what made me SWOON. What got my heart pounding, my skin tingling, and my stomach fluttering."

My pick this week was simple. This swoon is less on the steamy side and more on the "awww". I'm currently reading, and about half way through with "This Is What Happy Looks Like" and I'd just like to say, this book is ridiculously amazing so far. The last book I read was filled with disappointment and I really needed something to make me smile, make me happy. Hello it says it right in the title how can I not pick this? So my sweet part I literally just read 2 min ago and it had me grinning from ear to ear. Here we have Ellie and Graham's first kiss :)  ♥♥♥


*****


He was almost to the end of the driveway when he heard the screen door bounce shut behind him, and then the sound of Ellie's bare feet on the pavement as she ran to meet him, shaking her head as she approached.

"I'm sorry--" she began, but that was as far as she got, because Graham couldn't wait any longer. He leaned in, his lips meeting hers, which tasted faintly of peanut butter, and he closed his eyes, and he held her by the shoulders, and he kissed her.

It was exactly as he'd thought it would be, like the first time and the millionth time all at once, like being wide awake, like losing his balance. Only this time it wasn't just him, this time, they were losing their balance together.

*Sigh* I know right? I can't believe I stopped there to type this up for you people! I'm dying to get back to the book. Okay, okay.. I gotta get back to reading but link me up your swoons!! I'll be making my blog rounds later and can't wait to see what everyone else has for me :)
