Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week is all about swoon-worthy books. That can mean all sorts of things, but I decide to focus on books that feature swoon-worthy guys. Because, you know, I love a swoon-worthy guy story.
In no particular order . . .
1. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
I’m going to be particularly specific here and talk specifically about the audiobook version of The Scorpio Races. Just listening to Steve West say in his Sean Kendrick voice “Keep your pony off this beach” is worth the listen. Luckily the whole book is amazing, and I’m pretty much madly in love with West’s Sean Kendrick.
2. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Okay, so I admit it too me a little bit to warm up to Daemon, but holy cow, I did, I pretty much fell into a dead faint. Okay, not really, because I am made of sturdy stuff and never pass out. But seriously Daemon Black – yum.
3. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
I’m pretty sure Betty would say “Noah Freaking Hutchins,” and end the conversation. And I think that’s a perfect justification for Pushing the Limits.
4. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
A tough, sarcastic hot guy killing demons – yes please!
5. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
It’s hard to pick just ONE JQ book, but I have to go with this one. Colin is such a nice guy, and I think that’s why I love him. He’s not a rake or anything ridiculous like that. He’s just a nice guy, who happens to be wealthy and good-looking
6. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
I tried to switch things up a bit, and didn’t list P&P first, but really, this is the ultimate swoon-worthy book. Mr. Darcy.
7. The Secret by Julie Garwood
This is my favorite Julie Garwood book. I love it because I get to see Judith and Iain getting to know each other, and because Iain is so honorable. Seriously, I thinking honorability is one of the most attractive traits ever.
8. Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson
It’s sweet, and fun, and full of romance!
9. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
It’s more of a quiet swoon, but still totally swoony. Sometimes it’s the quiet ones that affect you the most.
10. Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
Okay, so this is sort of part of the Pushing the Limits series, but all the books are companion novels, so I’m including this. There is just something totally amazing about Isaiah. I love how loyal he is, and when he helps Rachel out – sign.
