Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where the contributors over at YA Highway post a weekly writing- or reading-related question. Then readers answer it on their own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This week's topic:
A long-awaited kiss, a surprise ending, a character's sudden decision… these are the moments that make us smile, gasp, and LOVE a book for the rest of our lives.
What is your favorite literary moment?
This is such a hard question! I can't pick just one, so here are a few:
CINDER (review here): This one's a total spoiler. Highlight to read on. I love the moment when Cinder takes Peony the cure for the plague, but she's too late. It's so heartbreaking, but so beautiful.
INCARNATE: This one's easy. The masquerade scene is SO swoon worthy. I'm swooning now just thinking about it, and I'll probably be swooning all day. Every touch, every breath is so beautifully done and long awaited. Here comes the spoiler: I guess I must have trust issues, because I was nervous the first time I read the scene. I was afraid someone was tricking Ana. So once I finished the chapter, I re-read it and LOVED it.
WRINKLE IN TIME: I love the entire chapter that takes place on Camaztoz. It's so dark, but I really feel like this is the first time Meg gets an idea of how wonderful her differences are. Spoiler: Although everything that happens to Charles Wallace breaks my heart, when Meg sees her father it made my heart feel so full.
Those are just a few. What are some of yours? (Feel free to post a link to your post in the comments :) )
