I am so excited to be today’s stop on Stephanie Thomas’s LUMINOSITY blog tour with a Top Five Guest Post and Giveaway. I have been super excited for this book’s release ever since I first saw the amazing cover ages ago. And that description absolutely killed me! I CANNOT WAIT to dive in.
I have LUMINOSITY on my Kindle right now and I’m just dying to start reading it so I can meet Beatrice and this enemy who she may be falling in love with. But I’m even more excited to check it out after having read the author’s five favorite scenes which totally TEASE but DON’T SPOIL this awesome book.
I could ramble on for awhile but you’re not here to listen to what I LOVE about this book. You’re here to see what Stephanie Thomas does. So I will turn this blog over to her.
But first, here’s a little bit…
ABOUT THE BOOK
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My Top Favorite Scenes (Without Giving Anything Away)
The Execution Scene: This one was most vibrant in my mind, and my editors clung to it. I love how it repeats itself through the book in some way. It’s amazing how the scene evolved from the original version, since I didn’t originally write it to be a focus of the book. But it slowly became one, and I just love how it turned out.
The Ending Scene: I wanted to write this scene so badly that I originally wrote it out of order. I was near the end of writing the book, but I wanted to get that scene out of my head ASAP, and so it was born and written before the actual end of the book.
All the Dream Sequences: I loved writing the dream scenes because it was sort of like stream of consciousness writing. I could be much more free with details because it was all a dream, and we know that dreams can be bizarre things.
The Pathos/Hanging Scene: I can’t give away too much about this one, but lets just say there’s lots of blood and gore.
The Rooftop Scene: It involves Beatrice, Gabe and a secluded rooftop. Well, all except for those guards standing over there…
Oh my gosh this is such a tease! Just the scene names are making me absolutely desperate to start reading!
I love that the ending scene just had to be written and you couldn’t wait for the end to get it out. I think I’m going to have a major battle with my curiosity so as not to SKIP to the end to read it before I finish the book.
And blood and gore? Oooh love it! Though I’m a little scared of just WHO is being hanged….
I’m also so very curious about this “secluded” rooftop…. If Gabe is the best friend I hope that doesn’t mean what I think it could mean. The “best friend” role is never the safest one to have for a character….
Thank you so much for teasing your top five scenes. I have a feeling they will top the list of mine, too!
