Top Ten Swoonworthy Books


This week, I’m participating in Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Today’s theme? Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon. By which I think they mean top 10 characters that make you swoon. Which is a bit hard for me, because there’s not a lot of swoon in children’s and middle-grade fiction, which is what I mostly read these days. But here goes.
