Book Moments | Book to Movie or TV Show

This week on Gone with the Words:

Review: Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh
Review: Angels’ Flight by Nalini Singh
Review: Legend by Marie Lu


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.

The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy NelsonI 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?


Until There Was You by Kristan HigginsI 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. :)

    Sky of Everywhere sounds so good.  Thanks for the excerpts!  Kristan Higgins is one of my favorite authors.  I love the way she writes and her stories are so sweet.  They’d all make good movies (as long as they don’t go cheesy)

    I think cheating is absolutely allowed, considering Ginger also chose two scenes instead of one, and from different books to boot! And I think it’s good that you like a book that much that it holds more than one favorite scene, amking you unable to pick one over the other. ;)
    This is my TGIF for this week

    I’m surprised you could limit yourself to only two quotes from The Sky is Everywhere. What a beautiful book….

    Have a great weekend!

    Awww, that is so very sweet! I love both scenes, and while I haven’t read as many contemporaries, I’m really inspired to read The Sky is Everywhere. :) Thanks for sharing, Jess, both scenes were breath-taking.

    I haven’t heard of this book….but its seems like another book to list as to-read! I agree, even as much as you think the significant other is a dork, you need some humor :)

    I feel like I must be the only one not to have heard of that book. Nice excerpts and it says a lot that you couldn’t pick your fave bit and that there were other contenders too.
