Top 10 Swoony Quotes

Top Ten Swoony Quotes
(Feature hosted in The Broke and the Bookish)

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, which means a romantically themed Top Ten Tuesday!  It's no secret that I'm a fan of sweet romantic stories.  I'm the girl who went to see the new Nicholas Sparks movie on opening weekend.  They're cheesy.  They're often ridiculous.  But they give you feels, and there's nothing wrong with that.  The fantastic crew at The Broke and the Bookish provided some list options, and I went with a quotes one, because certain lines stay with you long after you finish a book.  Here are a few of my swoon-worthy favorites.

What's on your list?

Happy reading!
