We all have those “remember when” life moments (like when I fell flat on my face in front of my 7th grade crush at the school dance. Yeah, I’m still working on getting over that one).

But do you have certain BOOK memories that you’ll never forget? Isn’t it fun to remember big, epic things that happen in your favorite books, or just moments that were so hilarious you almost peed your pants laughing? Here are some of my favorites, but beware! There are some serious Harry Potter and Hunger Games spoilers here!RememberWhen

  • (SPOILER ALERT!!!) Harry killed Voldermort? (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)
  •  Greg lost his swim trunks jumping off the high dive? (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)
  • (SPOILER ALERT!!!) Katniss chose Peeta? Yes, Peeta! (Mockingjay for ages 12 and up)
  • The Snow Queen fed Edward Turkish delight and warmed him in her sleigh, and the whole time you’re thinking, “No, Edmund, don’t do it!” (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)

What are your favorite book moments? For today’s Writing Prompt, write your “Remember When” Book Memories in the Comments below!

    Remember When….

    In Mockingjay, the last book in the Hunger Games when Finnick died? I thiught it was so sad because he had just married his wife Annie, and he also had had a baby. It was unexpected and very sad.

    Remember when……….
    In Percy Jackson and the Olympians Battle of the Labyrinth when Quintus told Percy he was the half-blood who created the Labyrinth, Percy thought he was joking and he said, “Yeah and I’m Zeus.” I know it probably doesn’t seem funny in this way but if you read the book, at the time they were in(a life or death situation)it was pretty funny in the book.

    SPOILER ALERT for Mockingjay:
    Remember when Finnick dies and I think everyone had to read it a least three times to see if he REALLY just got his face eaten off and then you burst into tears?
    Oh man, I think I sent in the same comment twice. Oops.

    *SPOILER ALERT*
    Some of my uber memoriable moments were when…

    - Fred died: i was totally NOT expecting that!
    - When Katniss said yes to making the Capitol’s kids go through the Hunger Games: i seriously thought she was going to say no because she didnt want any others being hurt by the monstrosity.
    - When Katniss shot President Coin instead of Snow: I was like WHAAA?! Then i understood why
    - When Mary (from The Agency series by Y. S. Lee) tells James that she is a private detective and nothing about the secret organization
    And MANY more!

    I remember when I read Hunger by Michael Grant and Little Pete first said ‘hungry in the dark’. I was like WAIT A MINUTE CAINE ALSO SAID THAT WHAT IS HAPPENING???
    I also remember when I read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Screts for the first time, I had to keep reminding myself ‘Harry has five books left he can’t die’. That part was so sad!

      had the same moment when my brother was watching the one where he gets hit by the killing curse the second time he showed me one part:
      Le me: Is this the last movie/ book?
      Le older brother: no
      Le me: then why did he die?
      Le older brother: He is between “heaven” and “earth” so technically hes not “dead” yet so he has to decide if he wants to die or go back and fight
      What i heard Le older brother say: Blah blah blah heaven blah blah blah blah technically not dead blah blah blah fight
      What i said: ohhhhhhhhh so he’s dead
      Le older brother: noob
      i just pieced all of this toghether so… good day
