TGIF (2): Book Moments

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads.

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.

This should be a fun one and kind of quick. 

Across the Universe by Beth Revis. Amy goes to her father's storage locker and takes away a couple of notepads and a copy of The Art of War. She decides at that moment that she's going to have to fight Eldest (even though she's been on the ship for two days). It was so over-the-top cliche and dramatic and hokey that I couldn't help but smile at how stupid the scene was.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. All of the almost hook-up scenes between Anna and St. Claire. They were really cute and better than actual kiss scenes. Spot on, Stephanie Perkins.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Manchee the Talking Dog. Nuff said.

I would also like to apologize for not posting a new video or, err, post for several days. I've been busy and am trying to secure a better camera at the moment. If not I'll be back to posting regular written posts on Monday.

  1. You have way more self control than I do (vis a vis Across the Universe). I tend to chuck books at the wall.

    1. I've done that. It was an Ayn Rand book, though. And it left a fairly large dent in the wall. Her books are brick shaped...

    1. If I had a top five list of pets he'd be number 3.

  3. Anna....epic cuteness! Same with Lola! That's the only way I can describe those books. Epic cuteness!

    1. I'm still workin' on the top five fictional crushes I've got. It's harder than I thought.

    1. I plan on doing that (although I am starting to enjoy the videos).

  5. Yep, loved the tension between Anna and Etienne in Stephanie Perkins' debut novel. And Manchee is probably my favorite character in The Knife of Never Letting Go, he's awesome.

    1. I'm reading Lola right now and it's kind of killing me that Stephanie Perkins hasn't really created the right kind of tension between Lola Cricket. Also, his name is Cricket.
