Swoon Thursday: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Well, I haven't posted a Swoon in a very long time. It feels good to get back in the game. There were a lot of passages I really loved in Divergent. In the end, it was a no-brainer. SO this is what I'm swooning about.

Swoon Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by YA Bound @

“I have something to tell you,” he says.

I run my fingers along the tendons in his hand and look back at him.

“I might be in love with you.” He smiles a little. “I’m waiting until I’m sure to tell you, though.”

“That’s sensible of you,” I say, smiling too. “We should find some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something.”

I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing behind my ear.

“Maybe I’m already sure,” he says, “and I just don’t want to frighten you.”

I laugh a little. “Then you should know better.”

“Fine,’ he says. “Then I love you.”

Le sigh!

    1. It was interesting in that while there was a romantic story, it's not a typical romance in that every day was a life and death struggle. So, the romance was very stripped down, more cut to the chase, maybe more primitive. It was certainly refreshing. And believe me, Four is a very swoon-worthy romantic lead.

      I know you hate hyped up books and try to stay away from them, but I think you might actually like this.

  2. Oh I love this book! Awesome swoons!

    1. I'm just sorry it took me so long to read it. I think it was just my dystopian prejudices. So glad I caught the movie on cable. Otherwise, I might never have read the book. Now I just need to read the rest of the series.

  3. Awww... that is a great swoon! I so need to read this series!!

    1. I was a non-believer, but I'm glad I caught the movie on cable which prompted me to read the book. I got the Kindle edition because it was under $5.00. Loved it so much I had to buy the Collector's Edition in hard cover with some extra goodies inside. I wholeheartedly recommend the series, well, at least Divergent. I still need to read Insurgent. I hope you check it out!
