Swoon Thursday – 1. On The Jellicoe Road

Swoon Thursday - 1

Swoon Thursday is a meme created by the girls at YA Bound. (click on the button above to be directed to their site). Here’s how it works;
From thebook 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.

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! We want to know 🙂


This is not only our first entry for Swoon Thursday, but our first time participating in a meme! In keeping with the theme of our blog, we decided that our first swoon would be over none other than the delectable Jonah Griggs from On The Jellicoe Road:

‘We passed Yass about half an hour ago.’
I smile. Three years on and we’ve moved forward, past the town where the Brigadier found us.
‘If you weren’t driving, I’d kiss you senseless,’ I tell him.
He swerved to the side of the road and stops the car abruptly.
‘Not driving any more.’

– pg 220 from the original Australian copy
