Swoon Thursday #2 - The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead


The fabulous girls over at YA BOUND created this super HOT meme. Here's how it works.

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

This week I picked my Swoon from The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. I love the Vampire Academy and the Bloodline series, which this book is from. I hope you enjoy!!

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

“‘Historically inaccurate.’ ” Adrian gestured at me with his other hand, the one not on my shoulder. “Who the hell looks at you and says ‘historically inaccurate’?”

“Well,” I said. “Technically it is.”

“He shouldn’t have said that.”

I shifted, knowing I should move away ... but I didn’t. “Look, it’s just his way.”

“He shouldn’t have said that,” repeated Adrian, eerily serious. He leaned his face toward mine. “I don’t care if he’s not the emotional type or the complimentary type or what. No one can look at you in this dress, in all that fire and gold, and start talking about anachronisms. If I were him, I would have said, ‘You are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth.’”
