TGIF is a weekly meme created and hosted by Ginger of GReads! that recaps the week's posts and has a different question each week.
This week on Denim-Jacket Librarian Dishes:
What has been your favorite moment (scene) in a book that you've read so far in 2012? (Be kind and no spoilers please.)
My Answer: This is a tough question since there have been so many great scenes in the books I've read in 2012. If I had to choose, I'd have to say when Persephone meets the mysterious man visiting her vale in Radiant Darkness by Emily Whitman.
Sun shines full on his face, blazing on the gold behind his night-black hair, making a halo. He's looking right at me.
I've got a second chance and I'm going to use it.
But use it how? What do I do?
My senses are wide open and everything is flooding in: heat, soaking into me so I can feel every single pore opening... the sun, burning up the chariot so it looks ready to explode... birdsong and the sound of hooves shuffling in the grass...
He smiles. "Hello."
AND the cemetery scene from Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey. Yes, I'm a cheater, but I can't help it if there's such good scenes in so many books!
"You've kept me waiting forever, Rose," he said in a smooth, rich voice.
I sat back and stared at the vivid image my mind had conjured in that reflection. He was tall and thin, with longish hair. Well, if I was going to hear bogeymen, I supposed it was better that I could see them too, especially if they looked like this one. But why would I conjure one that called me by my middle name?
I'd had enough weird for one day. It was time to relegate him to my imagination where he belonged.
