Feature and Follow Friday: My first attempt!



Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by two equally awesome bloggers, Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. This linky party is perfect for those who loves to read and blog. Every week, a question is posted and everyone is welcome to blog their response and join the linky party.

This week the question posted was

What is the last book that made you cry?
Tell us about the scene

My answer

It was the father-daughter scene from The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. When Hadley was having this dialogue with her father

Dad: I think this guy would be happier too, if you let him go. (pertaining to a firefly) You know what 
they say, If you love something set it free.
Hadley: What if he doesn't come back
Dad: Some things do, some things don't. He said, reaching over to tweak her nose, I'll always come back to you anyway.
Hadley: You don't light up. Hadley pointed out, but only Dad smiled.
Dad: I do when I'm with you.

Part of me was affected because I admit that I'm not used to having this kind of conversation with my own Father. I was rather blessed with a Father, who I see as a man of few words. We rarely have heart-to-heart conversations, but deep inside I know He loves me more than anything else. My Father has this mysterious and magical presence that despite his silence, I know I always have him with me.

  5. That was a pretty touching scene in TSPOLAFS. Honestly, I am not sure I would be able to forgive my father for doing that. I think it is pretty awesome that Hadley can.

  8. I have to say, it didn't make me cry. I was really excited for the novel, but I found it a bit disappointing :/ maybe that was just me though? New follower!

    1. Nina, it wasn't the entire book that make me cry. The book didn't receive excellent ratings from me too, as evidenced in my linked book review in the post. However, though the book didn't impress me to my expectations, there are just some scenes that melted my heart. I particularly love that conversation of Hadley and her Dad. For some reason, the simplest words are powerful enough to awaken that emotional trail in my heart.
