Swoon Thursday (8)- The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

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 a share swoon-worthy snippet with you!

So this week I’ve decided to share a swoon-worthy scene from the book I’m currently reading! So far this book was awesome and I know you all will be dying to get your hands on it after this passage!

THE BURNING SKY by Sherry Thomas

This book is awesome and the scene I’m going to share isn’t sexy times but it’s very sweet. When I read is I awed and swooned! I absolutely adore Titus and I can’t wait for the world to meet him! Ok so a little set up here Iolanthe has been transformed into a canary for her own protection and Titus doesn't think she will remember what he has said to her when she transforms back into a human. Will she remember? You'll have to read the book to find out ;)

“Remember it will be unpleasant and you will not be able to move immediately afterward. I will wait in the repository.”

She chirped after a few seconds, perhaps trying to make sure he had vacated the premises.

“I am still here, shuffling along.” He answered.

She chirped again. She was most likely telling him to hurry, but he chose to have a little fun with her—there was a severe scarcity of fun in his life. “You are anxious? Imagine how I feel, darling.”

She chirped twice in a row. He wished he did not feel so wretched—carrying on an imaginary conversation with her would otherwise have been a highly rewarding use of his time.

“How can you help? If you will only…” He stopped.

He had been trying, with no apparent success, to bridge the chasm between them. But that was not all he wanted, was it? No, he was far more ambitious than even he had realized. He wanted her to…

“Fall in love with me.” He heard, loud and clear, the words the truth serum compelled from him. “If you loved me, everything would be so much easier.”

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