Swoon Thursday (3)- The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson

Ok so you said you’d like me to keep doing Swoon Thursdays and I am here to please! Thanks to the lovely ladies at YA Bound for this awesome meme! I love being able to share swoon-worthy snippet with you!

So this week I’ve decided to share swoon-worthy scenes from one of the books I’ve read over the past week! This book was the perfect finale and I know you all will be dying to get your hands on it after this passage!


This series is one of my absolute favorites and the ending was perfect but bittersweet. I will miss all of these characters and this world! One of my top 5 book boyfriends comes from this series and that’s why I needed to share a little bit of Hector and Elisa with you!

He lifts his head and considers me thoughtfully. Then he tips up my chin with his thumb and kisses me again—a sweeter, gentler kiss that feels like sun breaking through the clouds.

The pit of my stomach buzzes as I press my forehead into his chest, saying, “I told you that you would kiss me again.”

He laughs. “It’s the ‘and more’ part I remember most vividly.” He gently pushes me away, putting a safe cushion of distance between us. He grabs my hands and lifts them to his lips. “When we reach Bassajuan, maybe I can get you to myself for a while.”

The earth tilts a little.

“In the meantime,” he adds. “I really should teach you how to care for tack. I find myself in need of a distraction.”

I grin. “Good idea.”

So what did you think? Does this make you want to add it to you TBR? I’d love to hear what you think!


  1. Ugh torture me! I want this book so much!!! Thanks for sharing. Nice swoon moment :)

  2. O.M.G. I need this book! Thank you so much for posting the excerpt! :)

  3. Gah I loveeee these two!! They are definitely two of my fave characters separately, and together they are just a constant swoon.

    Also, YES to this being such a great conclusion. I actually can't wait to re-read it, even though I just read it a week or so ago.
