       And Now A Post About Books

Okay so I finished A Breath of Snow and Ashes this last weekend (I mentioned that below) and as always when I read Gabaldon, I go back to pick up Voyager to at least re-read the scene where Claire walks into Jamie's print shop after being gone for twenty years.

Because as memorable scenes go, it's one of the big ones for me. It's like the wedding night scene in Outlander - it's so well written and unexpected on many levels that you can see the depth of the chemistry and connection between these two people.

Claire thinks about how she wants to run her fingers through his hair to feel his skull after all that time has passed, she sees the bump on his nose and knows it's been broken at some point. It's those little details that make the scene so powerful.

And when they come together the first time when she comes back, it's hesitant and shy as well as needy and passionate. I love that.

What memorable scenes to you return to over and over?

    Lauren - I love Diana Gabaldon. I have a Breath of Snow and Ashes in my TBR pile. I love Jamie and Claire.

    I think they're a really wonderful couple and I love how they've aged together. Oh and the kilt.

    Those books are intense. I read the first 4 when they were first published, and was amazed the depth of detail.

    I have some Gabaldon in my TBR but haven't gotten around to reading them. Guess I should shift them up.

    Jenny -I had Outlander in my hands on and off for years. I'd look at the back and think, "ugh! This is not my kind of book" but a friend of mine sent several of the series to me and I read the first one in a day and a half and I was hooked.

    Kathy - congrats on the new grandbaby!
