Swoon Thursday {31} The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Swoon Thursday is a weekly feature hosted by #YABound
in which we share something that made us swoon in the
book we're currently reading or recently finished.


This week I'm featuring The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black!

Leaning over, not speaking, he brought his mouth to hers. For a wild moment she wondered if he wanted her. Her and not just this. 
At first, the kiss seemed part of the night and the dancing, full of dreamy madness. Jack kissed her as though he only could reassure himself she was awake and okay so long as they were touching. He kissed her as though he thought she’d turn to smoke the moment he stopped.
paperback, pg 214
I totally cut this scene short. Which is a shame for you guys, because boy is it a nice kiss scene, but also good for you because it's enough of a tease to get you to pick this up, if you haven't.

This was such a magical book. Holly Black is so good with faerie stories! The ship <3


  1. Definitely looking forward to reading this at some point. Great scene to share, thank you! :)
