RTW: Those Magic Moments
YA Highway's Roadtrip Wednesday prompt today is: What is your favorite literary moment?
I've read so many books I've loved, and rooted for, and gasped and cried over. It's hard to pick just one moment in one book. That said, the Harry Potter series has some pretty great moments. We're talking jump around cheering or gasp like a child with his first balloon moments. I love those moments.
While others have specific genre-oriented moments they love - first kiss, finding whodunnit, getting revenge - I love the moments of wonder and realization, when the character finally comes into his/her own. The moments that make you go "Really? Really?? Really!" These moments are so amazing, the main character often doesn't believe it himself.
What literary moments are your favorites?
