The Sweet Stuff: The Top Ten “Awww” Moments in Books

The Broke and The Bookish want to know this week, what are the Top Ten "Awww" Moments In Books (those cute lines, charming actions, kisses, or any other sentimental moment that made you say "AWWW!"

The only way to explain the “Aww” moment is to include spoilers. They’re kept to a sentence or two, but you’ve been warned. So here are my top six in no particular order.

1. When Peeta gave Katniss the pearl in Catching Fire.

2. When Luke gave Becky back the Denny and George scarf in Confessions of a Shopaholic.

3. When Gabriel hides June Beans in Rhine’s meal trays in Wither.

4. The final time Clare sees Henry when she’s an old lady at the end of The Time Traveler’s Wife.

5. When Harry, Ron, Hermione & Ginny are all sitting together in the Gryffindor common room in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and you think, this is how it should always be.

6. When Eric has Sookie’s driveway re-graveled at the end of Club Dead. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but I thought it was so thoughtful.

This one was difficult for me. I guess I don’t read a lot of sweet books. I’m sure there will be a few I’ll see as I look through the lists this week and wonder why I didn’t think of it, but this list was definitely one of the shorter ones for me.

What are your favourite sweet moments?


  1. Love your sweet moments. I tweeked the "awww" a bit, for my own purposes.

    Here's my Top Ten "Awww" Moments. I hope you'll stop by and see what you think.

  2. I like reading other peoples lists because I'm reminded of stuff I'd forgotten like the end of Time Travelers Wife. Great Moment!

  3. I loved it when Peeta gave Katniss the pearl too, you have a great list of perfect awww moments. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  4. I only thought of one, so I didn't post, but it was the scene in which Ron, Harry, and Hermione become friends following their defeat of the mountain troll.

  5. Thanks for stopping by. I loved having all four of them sit in the common room together in Half-Blood Prince too. I loved that Ginny was included.

  6. Yeah! I saw this meme and thought I wouldn't be able to think of 10! But good job with these!! I love number 5!

  7. Deb, Maybe I should have done some tweeking too.

    Jenny, I wouldn't have thought of it if I hadn't just read a review of the movie.

    kaye, I love Katniss and Peeta. Peeta was such a sweetheard.

    smellincoffee, That's a great aww moment and it really bonded them as friends.

    Jenni, Lah, Ginny was on the outskirts for a long time. When she became part of the group, it felt great, even if it was only for a little while.
