Swoon by Nina Malkin

Swoon by Nina Malkin
Published: New York : Simon Pulse, 2009

In rural Connecticut, when seventeen-year-old Dice tries to exorcise a seventeenth-century man who is possessing her cousin Pen, she inadvertently makes him corporeal--and irresistible.

I found Swoon to be a really good book. I loved every part of it.

I liked most of the characters, I really liked Dice and I thought she was a pretty cool character. I think that the only character I wasn't too fond of was Pen. But I have to say that I felt Nina Malkin did a good job with character development.

The story line itself is a really good one. It is unique and the first book I've read that is actually about possession.

Swoon is definitely a well-written book, the interest level is there too. The chapters are all quite short and so I kept telling myself, I'll just read one more chapter but I would soon find myself reading five chapters.

The only thing I didn't really like was the drug use but thats just me and to be honest it didn't change the way I felt about the story as a whole or anything like that.

Overall, Swoon is definitely worth your time. It is a great novel with a unique story line and great characters. If you enjoy paranormal stories with a twist of romance then Swoon is definitely the book for you.


  1. Awesome review! I'll be sure to check it out!

  2. I'm DYING to read this one... my friend recently bought it and I'm planning on kidnapping the book once I get to her house ;)

  3. I loved Swoon! and I have to agree, I wasn't the biggest fan of Pen.

    I love when books have short chapters as well, but it does make you want to read more :)


Comments are always awesome!
