This one is tough, because I really don’t know what book holds my favourite scene ever… I’m a complete romantic, so I guess my favourite scenes would be when the girl and guy in the novels realize they love each other, or have a cute moment together, etc. Therefore, these three books top the list of my favourite scenes.
I absolutely adore the scene in Pride and Prejudice when Mr. Darcy drops in unexpectedly to see Elizabeth, but doesn’t have anything to talk about. It’s completely awkward and cute and realistic, that it’s hard not to love them. The fact that he wanted to see her but didn’t have a good enough reason to and ended up going to Charlotte’s house anyways (where Elizabeth was staying), is simply perfect.
The Hollow Tree also provides a cute scene between Jem and Phoebe around the campfire. They’re trying so hard to fight their feelings but it’s obvious they can’t. This is a young adult’s novel, but I love it anyways. I was always jealous of Phoebe’s romantic situation when I was young because she and Jem just fit so perfectly together.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has two of my most favourite scenes in literature. Firstly, the battle scene at the very end was incredible. The movie version didn’t do it complete justice, but I lose myself in the book. Fred’s death is unbearable, not to mention all the deaths, but that only strengthens the scene even more. Secondly, I love the moment when Ron and Hermione finally admit their feelings to each other. And by that I mean Hermione jumps into Ron’s arms, kissing each other fiercely, while a battle goes on around them. The movie was cute, but not as powerful as it had been in the book.
Those are some of my favourite scenes in novels, but like I said, I’ve read too many books to name just a few scenes.
