Hello Lovelies! As usual TTT is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish . This week's theme is books that'll make me swoon. AKA books that I'll be rereading this Friday when I'm at home alone :D

 My YA Picks:
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson : A voyage abroad at 17 where she meets a cute guy and has a delightful time? Dream come true for me.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins : I've seen lots of Anna and the French Kiss on these lists, but why neglect Stephanie's equally delightful 2nd novel?? I CANNOT WAIT for Isla and the Happily Ever After
Okay, I know my picture is of That Summer, but I'm too lazy to change it to The Truth About Forever which is probably my favorite of Dessen's books, but they're all phenomenal. Just pick one--it'll be swoon-worthy.
My adult picks
The Darkest Pleasure by Gena Showalter : Okay, okay, it's the third book in the series. But this is by far my favorite so far (in terms of swooning, hoooooooo boy).
Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop : This was one of my first adult romance novels outside of the contemporary genre, and sweet baby Jesus it's delicious. This series, for real though. It's intense and the love just grips your heart.
Three Fates by Nora Roberts : I was on a super big NR kick for a few years and I've read most of her stuff (although her more recent books have been far less enjoyable and I gave up on her a little bit). This is by far my favorite. And it has one of my favorite couples of contemporary romance.
Naked in Death by J.D. Robb : Okay, technically another Nora Roberts book, but I feel like this series is substantially different than her contemporary romance novels. And the relationship in this series is delightful.
Wizard of the Grove by Tanya Huff : I also adore Tanya Huff's Keeper series, but this one has the most heart-wrenching love that just ughhhhhhhh. I don't want to spoil anything but dear god.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte : Like I could ever write a list of books about swooning without including my favorite book of all time. And while the romance in this book might not be great for real life, it's very very swoon-worthy.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte : Such a great romance. Swooooooooon.

So what about you? What books make you swoon??
