TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.
This week’s question: Book Moments: What has been your favorite moment (scene) in a book that you’ve read so far in 2012? Please be kind & not include spoilers.
I CHEATED! There! I confessed! It was only a little cheating though… :)
I went with TWO scenes from ONE book that still holds the spot for favorite of the year so far. Be prepared to swoon and smile!
Then his hands are on my cheeks and we are kissing and the rain is pouring all over our crazy heads and once again my whole being is aflame with joy.
I didn’t know love felt like this, like turning into brightness.
“What are you doing?” I say, when I can finally bring myself to pull away for a moment.
“I saw it was raining–I snuck out, wanted to see you, just like this.”
I know the expression love bloomed is metaphorical, but in my heart in this moment, there is one bad-ass flower, captured in time-lapse photography, going from bud to wild radiant blossom in ten seconds flat.
“You okay?” he asks. His hands are on either side of my arms and he’s peering into my face.
“Yes.” I’m wondering how people breathe in these situations. “I’m fine.”
“You are fine,” he says, looking me over like a major dork, which immediately snaps me out of my love spell.
“Ugh, quel dork,” I say, pushing him away.
He laughs and slips his arm around my shoulders.
I love this because he reminds me of my fiancé in that moment. After all, the way to this girl’s heart is with humor. The boy needs to only make me laugh. :)
This week’s question: What book would you love to see made into a movie or television show and do you have actors/actresses in mind to play the main characters?
I recently read Until There Was You by Kristan Higgins and LOVED it…I mean, LOOOOOVED! And I immediately thought it would make and excellent movie, with the right screenwriter and actors. It would have to showcase the tone of this book perfectly though, because it could easily be turned into something cheesy, which this book is not. :)
