My Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Books

It's no surprise I love to read romances.  Whether they occur for the first time in a young adult contemporary, or send the pages smoldering in adult romances, I love it all!  It's basically the number one element I require in what I read.  Of course there are always exceptions.

For this week's Top 10 Tuesday I've gathered my most swoony-worthy reads.  It was tough to choose, as I've swooned quite a bit over the stories I've read, but these 10 definitely hit the high mark and need to be recognized for it.  Have you read any of these?  If not, I highly recommend that you do! Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.

  1. Blue-Eyed Devil <3 I love Hardy Cates so much! I'm beyond excited for Joe's story!
    Lovely choices! My Life Next Door made my list also. Such a perfect summer romance.

  2. Great list, Ginger! I knew you would have Han's Summer series on your list. Me too! I also have The Truth About Forever (my fave Dessen!) I have put off reading Perfect Fifths b/c I am nervous about the ending, but it's good to know that you liked it and it's swoon worthy. I will have to check it out soon!

  3. I still haven't read anything by Jill Shalvis even though EVERYONE has told me to! Also haven't read a Dessen book or The Summer I Turned Pretty-- I have both sitting on my shelf. I can never decide which Dessen book to read first. I'm nervous about it for some reason. Yay for My Life Next Door!!

  4. That is my all time favorite Dessen book on your list. Wes is so...♥. I seriously love that book to pieces! And Conrad and Jeremiah? I still can't pick between the two.

    My TTT List

  5. Forever and a Day isn't my favourite Jill Shalvis story but in general I think ALL of her stories are SO swoon-worthy. Have to agree on The Truth About Forever -- it is by far my favourite, swooniest, cutest Sarah Dessen story!

  6. I had The Summer Trilogy on mine too. Belly and the boys are just adorable! I am glad that I checked out your list because I had forgotten that I wanted to read Where the Stars Still Shine! I must get my hands on that one soon!

  7. The Truth About Forever is super good - I love Sarah Dessen :D I've been meaning to read the Jessica Darling series for a long while now, it looks really cute!

  8. We don't have any overlap this week. When was the last time that happened?? You have included lots of books I don't know why I didn't include so I'm going to say we're still thinking alike :)

  9. Sarah Dessen & Sarah McLean are great picks - I can see that I have some romantic reading to catch up on. Lovely list!

  10. You just reminded me that I still haven't read the Jessica Darling series. I can't believe you and Anna are still friends with me ;)

  11. Ooh I just re-read The Truth About Forever a couple of months ago and it definitely made me swoon :) I haven't read The Summer I Turned Pretty series or My Life Next Door, but I own them both and really want to read them soon!

  12. I almost added My Life Next Door to my list. It is most definitely swoon-worthy. I also cannot get over how pretty the cover for Where The Star Still Shine is! I was done with the Jessica Darling series at Charmed Thirds.. but seeing Perfect Fifths on your list makes me want to continue the series.. maybe..

  13. I've only read two of these books - My Life Next Door and Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake, and I agree they are super swoon-worthy.

  14. Blue-Eyed Devil will always and forever make any list of romance/swoony books I've read. HARDY EFFING CATES <3
