The Weight of Souls by Bryony Pearce

His eyes glazed for a moment, then flickered up to meet mine.

For a moment there seemed to be something deeper than the usual disdain in the rich brown of them, and I pictured him as I always secretly saw him, a Victorian poet dumped into the wrong era. Justin was almost, but not quite, too thin; his uniform always clean and pressed, but not like a dork, more like he was too cool to bother to mess with it. Even when he was quietly directing the rest of the gang, he had a sprawling air. He always looked as if he was leaning on something, even if he wasn’t.

Daughter of Isis (Descendants of Isis #1) by Kelsey Ketch

“Come on, Natara Stone.” The sound of him speaking her name made Natti freeze in her place. “What’s it going to take?”

She felt his hand brush up her arm. A
shiver ran through her as she relaxed a bit under his touch. She had hoped it had been only her  imagination yesterday; that the strange, hypnotic feeling was all in her head. She knew the touch of a few boys from her past. Each was soft, sometimes intense; a spark which sent her skin glowing with desire. Seth touch was that and more. Like a fire burning under her skin mixing with the intense tingling sensation that danced through her veins. It was enticing, haunting, mesmerizing. . . . Better than she had ever known before. It simply seemed impossible.

SO NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! On your blog and/or on Twitter, tell us what’s got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

Be sure to attach your link to YA Bound and shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound.
