Swoon Thursday: Adore Me (The Keatyn Chronicles #4.5) by Jillian Dodd

Swoon Thursday is a meme hosted by YABound.  

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.

Today, I am spotlighting Adore Me (The Keatyn Chronicles #4.5) by Jillian Dodd, the thanksgiving novella recently release in one of my favorite series! I was upset after book #4 in the series but Adore Me was so, so good and I can't wait for the next book!  And now, on to the swoon:
I wake up and peek at the clock, shocked to see that it's almost nine. 
I'm not ready to get up though.  I want to lie in bed with Aiden all day.  Revel in the glory of him.  Sing praises about his chest.  Write poems about his tongue.  A sonnet about his lips.  Buy a billboard in Times Square thanking him for his amazing fingers.   
I pick his shirt up off the edge of the bed and pull it on, buttoning just the middle button.   
I hug mself, loving how his shirt feels on me.  And knowing that, somehow, I'm not letting it go home with him. 
I lie back down and run my hand down his arm, wanting him to wake up so I can see those gorgeous green eyes.
There were so many swoons in this book but I love Keatyn's internal monologue, always!  She is amazing at describing her own swoons!  Jillian Dodd is so good at description and voice that I always love reading her books and getting inside the character's minds.  Book #5 in the series, Hate Me, is scheduled to be released on April 12, 2014, and you can Pre-Order Hereor purchase Adore Me Here!!*  Who are you swooning over this week? Link up your Swoon below!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
