Thanks for hosting daynight!
Holy smokes, this one taxed my brain. Since I read so many books this last year (over 600), remembering individual scenes is near impossible for me. So only very memorable scenes, scenes from books that I've read many, many times, or scenes from recently read books came to mind :).
Favorite book moments
- When Peeta tells Caesar Flickerman who his crush is in The Hunger Games
- When Katniss sings to Rue and decorates her body in The Hunger Games
- Darcy confesses love for Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice
- Bilbo finds ‘my precious’ in The Hobbit and then encounters Gollum for the first time
- Ending of Mockingjay… loved that it wasn’t a Disney ending/completely realistic (though it took reading a few times to get there)
- Ending of Brave New World. So grim, but beautifully told.
- When Jacqueline finds out the identity of Landon in Easy
- Heart-wrenching twist near end of The Edge of Never
- Kiera and Kellan’s first kiss (and everything with them) in Thoughtless
- End of first book of Wool Omnibus, where Holden finally gets out to the hill to see his wife (grim)
Meet The Second Chance Institute (SCI): Earth’s benevolent non-profit by day, Thera’s totalitarian regime by night. Their motto: Because Everyone Deserves a Second Chance™. Reality: the SCI subjects Second Chancers to strict controls and politically motivated science experiments like Cleaving—forced lifetime union between two people who have sex.
Meet Kira Donovan. Fiercely loyal, overly optimistic, and ensnared by the promise of a full-ride college scholarship, Kira signs the SCI Recruit contract to escape memories of a tragedy that left her boyfriend and friends dead.
Meet Blake Sundry. Bitter about being raised in Exile and his mother’s death, Blake’s been trained to infiltrate and destroy the SCI. Current barrier to success? His Recruit partner—Miss Goody Two Shoes Kira Donovan.
Meet Ethan Darcton. Born with a defective heart and resulting inferiority complex, Ethan’s forced to do his SCI elite family’s bidding. Cleave-worthy Kira Donovan catches his eye, but the presiding powers give defect-free Blake Sundry first dibs.
