TGIF: Book Moments {4}


TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week's posts and has a 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? 
I didn't have to think too hard about this question. I immediately knew the answer, but I couldn't narrow it down to just one. Here are my top three favorite moments, based on my emotional response:

For the LOL factor, I couldn't stop laughing during the scene in Stay where Savannah drinks a few too many Kool-Aid cocktails while watching a Rin Tin Tin marathon. The result? She orders a (not so small) German Shepherd puppy from Slovakia. The entire scene was pitch perfect and hilarious. I couldn't stop giggling and reading parts aloud to my husband!

For the sweetness factor, I sighed over the moment in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight where the narrator explores how books have played a role in Hadley and her father's relationship. This is the line that made my heart swell: "He was a professor, a lover of stories, and he was building her a library in the same way other men might build their daughters houses."

For the cryfest factor, I held back tears while reading the epilogue in Unbroken. I don't even have the words to describe how much I loved the ending of the book. Well, the entire book really. So amazing!

    1. Isn't that line just the best? I also loved reading about how she and her father read together, but it was that line that made me LOVE the book.

    1. Yes, it was definitely LOL funny! I loved the witty and slightly sarcastic way Allie Larkin writes, and that scene was one of the best examples of it. Read STAY if you haven't already!! Thanks for commenting :)
