The Selective Collective: The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine


The SC’s December pick:


The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine

Here at Gone Pecan we were tasked with the freebie post.  Having a been on a bit of an imagination vacation this post was a long thought out idea but we’ve come to love it and hope you do as well.  In the book Wren’s BFFs (and Wren herself) mention several key romantic scenes from various movies and we thought why not share some of our favorites too??

Say Anything – Boom box Scene

Pride & Prejudice – Rain Scene

Teen Witch – Finest Hour/Dance Scene

My So-Called Life Hallway/Hand Holding Scene

10 Things I Hate About You – Poem Scene

Sixteen Candles – Church Scene

What about y’all?  What is your top scene stealing tv/movie moment?  Let us know!

Liked our freebie?   Check out the other SC posts!!
