First fave of 2012


TGIF is a bookish meme hosted by the fantastic Ginger at GReads! in which she asks a bookish question for us to discuss. Not only do I think Ginger is totally rad, but I happen to be a pretty big fan of this meme as well. That, my friends, is what we call a win-win.

This week Ginger asks:

Book Moments: What has been your favorite moment (scene) in a book that you've read so far in 2012? Please be kind & not include spoilers.

No spoilers here, friends. I promise.

My favorite moment from any book so far in 2012 is most assuredly from Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Picking one moment is difficult since the whole book is hilarious and insightful and touching and charming and difficult and the very best kind of coming-of-age.

I loooooved when Will Grayson (who likes Jane) showed up at her house to talk about Schrodinger's cat. Why I love this is best phrased by Jane when she says something along the lines of - there may be some girls who would be annoyed that you showed up close to midnight to talk about Schrodinger's cat...but I am CERTAINLY not that kind of girl. Yeah, our boy Will has moves and he doesn't even know it. What a bro.

Why I loved that scene is because Will is the type of boy who shuts himself down before he starts. He likes Jane but he doesn't know what it means to like her so he pretends not to. Of course, that's not effective at all. He finds they have TONS in common and they start discussing Schrodinger's cat. It kind of becomes their thing. It's so nerdy and dark and AWESOME that their thing is Schrodinger's cat. I just love it so.

What about you? Do you have a favorite scene so far? Do you know the scene I'm talking about in Will Grayson, Will Grayson?

  1. Haha, I remember that scene! They're sitting on a porch swing or something, right? I read this book a while ago, so the details are hazy, but I do remember LOVING it! Great pick, Lisa!

  3. I haven't read this one yet, although it's certainly on my list. If only someone would stop time, so I could catch up... The reference to Schrodinger's Cat reminds me of Big Bang Theory (one of my favorite shows.) They refer to it in at least one episode. I WILL read this book. I WILL read this book....

  5. That is a really great (and nerdtastic) moment in the book!

    It's such a coincidence that your book moment is about Schrodinger's Cat as I just read a book (To Say Nothing of the Dog) that extensively discussed Schrodinger's Cat!

  7. I just read Will Grayson, Will Grayson a couple of weeks ago, and I loved that scene as well, although my favorite scene was probably the one where WG and WG first meets, and are sitting out on the curb talking:)

  8. That sounds unexpectedly endearing and sweet. Also, hilarious. I'm a fool for not having read this yet!
