Just kiss already


So Christina Lee and Stina are hosting a “Just kiss already” blogfest and since I love a good kissing scene I thought I’d join in.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any great kissing scenes for my books, so I picked a published book.

To start off, I was one of those who wanted Harry and Hermonie to get together, that is until I read Half Blood Prince then I was just anxious for Harry and Ginny to kiss, so here it is.

A kissing scene by J.K. Rowling:

Harry looked around; there was Ginny running towards him; she had a hard blazing look on her face as she threw her arms around him. And without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her.

Can’t wait to go read the rest of the blogs.

Goal this week: Not to make any goals, because they don’t seem to be working for me. More on Wednesday.

I like that kissing scene too! Even in the movie version.

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Ah yes, Harry and Ginny.

Heidi Willis said...

I think the greatness of a good kissing scene is all the tension that leads up to it, so that when it finally comes, you're totally willing it to happen. Rowling did that well!!

I don't have any kissing scenes in my books either, which is a shame because this last one has a romantic interest. Maybe I need to rectify that. :)

Have fun with your lack of goals. :)

LTM said...

aww!!! And I always thought it would be H+H, too... Sometimes no goals are good goals! Have a great week~ :o)

I think the beauty of the Harry and Ginny relationship is the fact it takes SO LONG to happen--Rowling drops hints starting in book 1, when Ginny is obviously smitten and hero-worship crushing on Harry.

There's also a certain rightness to it. Harry HAS TO be part of the Weasley family, so marrying in is just perfect.

That is a good one! HP has it all doesn't it?

lotusgirl said...

Love HP! I love Harry and Ginny's relationship!

Loved this scene! So much better than the one they portrayed in the movie.

I loved the fact that this scene was so simple and short, yet completely satisfying! Then again, anything HP is great! :)

LOL! I think that has to be the shortest excerpt yet. And I think you may be the only one who'll quote Harry Potter. haha

Holly Ruggiero said...

Nice scene. I agree with Heidi it's the buildup that creates all the tension for the perfect scene.

Colene Murphy said...

BEST Harry Potter kissy scene!! Awesome choice!

Raquel Byrnes said...

You know I wanted him to get with Hermione also...and then I read that book and was like...yeah, of course.
Edge of Your Seat Romance

Stina Lindenblatt said...

This was probably one of my fav part of the series. I knew from the first book that they'd get together in the end. :D

What a great valentine theme. Thanks for sharing this kiss with us, such a touching moment I think.

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

What? Harry kissed Ginny?

Guess I really need to catch up on my HP reading. I think I stopped at book 3???

Yay for no goals. They never work for me either.

I think I was always rooting for Hermione and Ron.
