Waterfall Wednesday - Week 5 Chapters 2428

Wednesday, September 28, 2011


Waterfall Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tina's Book ReviewEdgy Inspirational RomanceSupernatural SnarkThe Unread Reader and me.  For the period August 31st to September 28th each week we re-read chapters from Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren and answer five questions.  To find out more on this awesome event visit Tina's Books Reviews

1.  After Gabi is injured, the doctor gives her a tonic.  Gabi questions the doctor several times what is in it but he refuses to tell.  Would have you taken the tonic in Gabi situation?
 
At first I thought no.  But after being so sick for the last couple of weeks and things not looking better anytime soon I think I would try just about anything to make it go away.  So yes I would.

2.  Before the games Gabi asks Lia to let Lord Forabosch win in the archery event as people especially Lord Forabosch are becoming suspicious of them.  But during the games Lord Forabosch upsets Lia trying to throw her off her game. So Lia decides to win.  Do you think she did the right thing by not letting Lord Forabosch bully her or do you think she took an unnecessary risk?

I think Lia did the right thing. I personally couldn't have put up with Lord Forabosch and would have loved to put him in his place.

3.  When Gabi is dying and she and Lia decide to return to the tombs so they can get the cure at home but they have to tell Marcello the truth.  Even though Marcello thinks that it is madness that they are from the future he believes in Gabi because he loves her.  Do you think this is believable?  What would you have done if you were Marcello?

Hmmm I don't know if I would have believed it especially from someone I have only know a short time.  But love is pretty powerful and makes you have faith in people.

4.       In the end Gabi and Lia return home.  Do you think Gabi will return to Marcello? Would you go back?

Yes I am sure Gabi will go back.  I couldn't walk away from Marcello.  For true love I would pretty much do anything even if it is a little bit scary.

5.  Looking back at Waterfall what was your favourite moment?
 
Well since I am a romantic fool it would have to be that kiss!
 
I can't believe our Waterfall Wednesdays are now over.  It has been a whole lot of fun.  If you haven't read the rest of the series yet do so immediately.  It just gets better and better. 
 
Link your answers below for your chance to win The River of Time series, signed by the author. Winner will be chosen Thursday, 29/9/11.  Also don't forget commenting on any Waterfall Wednesday post automatically enters you into the draw to win Tuscan Earrings from Lisa T. Bergren! Good Luck!

Hi Nic:) Great responses! I'm sorry to hear about your illness. I hope you feel better soon:)

I agree with your view on Lia's behaviour. I felt that she'd done what needed to be done, even if it put her and Gabi at risk. She couldn't give in and let Foraboschi intimidate her.

I also would not be able to walk away from some one like Marcello...*sigh*.

I'm sad that Waterfall Wednesdays has come to an end. I hope I'm able to maintain communication with you and other bloggers after this.

Heh, yeah I loved that Lia stuck it to Lord Forabosch! And I can't wait to read Cascade when Gabi does return to Marcello! I'm sad that this is the end of Waterfall Wednesdays. I loved every week!

Gina @ My Precious said...

Hope your feeling better....

Oh, I never thought of myself as a romantic, but my favorite moment was THAT KISS too! :-)

Great answers to the final set of questions. I can't believe Waterfall Wednesdays is now officially over. Its been so fun!

Maybe someone would like to continue for the next two books?

Julie said...

Nic, I hope you are feeling better soon! Thanks for hosting this last week. I think everyone is agreeing that Lia needed to kick some Forabaschi butt! I've enjoyed WW very much!

rachelkiwi said...

oh my gosh, i hope you feel better soon. thanks for hosting even though you aren't well!

snuggle up with some cascade and torrent!

Amy @ bookgoonie said...

Thanks for hosting. Yep, the kiss had me at "I want to try something".

mrs_laura_koehler said...

I pretty much agree with all your answers. They are very similar to mine. Now for the last one I didn't really put my favorite part of the book since I loved pretty much all of it. I put my favorite part of the read a long. Hope thats ok. I hope you feel better.

Melissa said...

Sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well!! Hope you are on the mend! And I agree...I would have taken the tonic as well!!

Serena Chase said...

Oh, yeah. That KISS!!! There were so many great moments that is undeniably difficult to pick favorites!

Great answer and thanks for hosting this week!

Savannah said...

I really enjoyed all of the questions you all answered. I would have not taken the medicine. You never know what they gave you back then.

Lisa said...

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I completely agree that depending on how sick I was I would take the medicine also.

The kiss was spectacular! And after that kiss how could Gabi not return to Marcello.

Rebecca (RivkaBelle) said...

Hope you're feeling better! I was battling something last week myself...ick

I totally agree with you re: Lia! Plus, I mean really: is Lord F really going to be any 'nicer' if he won? Dude's a creeper, haha

Sad to see the end, but it's been an amazing adventure with everyone! :o)

Missie said...

I would have totally taken the tonic, but first, I would have shared some with you.

Lia was a total bada$$ with the way she put Foraosch in his place!

Thanks for the awesome questions this week, Nic! Hope you feel better.

Faith Hope Cherrytea said...

get well soon!
thanks for hosting - well done =)
looking fwd to more thoughts via the group... Cheers!

Jenny said...

Hope you're feeling a little better Nic!

I was completely rooting for Lia too, I wouldn't have been able to sit idly by and let that a-hole taunt me, I would have been compelled to put him in his place:) Thanks so much for hosting this week Nic!

YA Book Queen said...

Great answers! Ah, the kiss...that was definitely a great scene :)

Thanks for hosting, Nic!

Sally@Always Lost in Stories said...

Ah, that kiss- I loved THAT kiss too!

Hope you feel better soon.

Has truly loved this read-along. Thanks for hosting!

Jen (In the Closet With a Bibliophile) said...

I love Lia for exactly what she did. Meshing in is so overrated!

As for the tonic, I would have been angry that the doctor wouldn't answer me. It always reminds me of that joke: Don't take anything unless it's prescribed to you by a doctor or someone who looks like a doctor. LMAO!! Gotta love medieval Italy. :D Love the questions this week, Nic!

Tina said...

Thanks for the great questions and answers this week Nic...:)

Im so with you on the love factor...;) I would do just about anything for my family so big WINS on doing things for love...!!!

My keeper shelf said...

I hope you are feeling better Nic and I am so with you on the kiss:)

Tonia Seaman said...

I would take it to feel better and pray for the best.

My favorite part is when Marcello asks her to come back to him...

I hope it's okay to post my answers here since I don't have a blog … I really enjoyed this –I've never done a “read along” before!

1. After Gabi is injured, the doctor gives her a tonic. Gabi questions the doctor several times what is in it but he refuses to tell. Would have you taken the tonic in Gabi situation?

--I think I might debate it a little, after all, not all remedies that people used back then were good for you or even the wrong thing to give a person. They did use a lot of natural stuff, but since Marcello vouched for the doctor, in the end, I probably would have relented because of the pain ...

2. Before the games Gabi asks Lia to let Lord Forabosch win in the archery event as people especially Lord Forabosch are becoming suspicious of them. But during the games Lord Forabosch upsets Lia trying to throw her off her game. So Lia decides to win. Do you think she did the right thing by not letting Lord Forabosch bully her or do you think she took an unnecessary risk?

--I thought it was neat to see a little of Lia's personality come through and it was a good reveal for her character. It was a risk and though it probably would have been better to keep a low profile, it was great to see Lord Forabosch get what was coming to him, ha-ha.

3. When Gabi is dying and she and Lia decide to return to the tombs so they can get the cure at home but they have to tell Marcello the truth. Even though Marcello thinks that it is madness that they are from the future he believes in Gabi because he loves her. Do you think this is believable? What would you have done if you were Marcello?

--I don't know what I would do ... Marcello did seemed shocked, but Gabi was dying and if there was a chance that they were right, it was the only way to save her ... I'm guessing that the next book would deal with his feelings on the across-time-and-space thing.

4. In the end Gabi and Lia return home. Do you think Gabi will return to Marcello? Would you go back?

--Yes, because there are two books afterward, and based on how the characters on those covers are dressed, I'd say they made their way back somehow, ha-ha! Perhaps ... ask me when I fall in love. Just kidding! =)

5. Looking back at Waterfall what was your favourite moment?

--The dance lessons!!! C'mon, Marcello AND Luca, what's not to like? And the "almost kiss" scene which I loved so much ... ooh, the tension! =D

Jacinda (The Reading Housewives) said...

The kiss was my favorite part as well!

Thanks for hosting Nic! I hope you are doing TONS better!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I hope you are feeling so much better!! Btw, if you find the tonic works, give me some! ;)

((HUGS))

Crystal said...

I hope you feel better soon!

I loved the first kiss scene, it was so sweet!

Thanks for hosting this week =D Loved your answers!

Booksnob said...

I would have taken the medicine too. The readalong was fun.

Small Review said...

Aw, I hope you are feeling better soon. I was wondering where you were and if you were ok! Sending you hugs :)

I loved that Lia stuck it to him! Oh and that kiss, yes, that was wonderful *sigh*

Booksnob said...

Hey Nic, My first link doesn't work #29 and I don't know how to delete it, can you? I added #31 and that one should work. Sorry.

The Book Diva said...

Thank you for great questions, we agree a lot on our answers! Sad to see this read-along come to an end, Waterfall is such a great book!

Lisa Tawn Bergren said...

Oh, Nic. C'mon over and we'll toast the last Waterfall Wednesday with a cuppa Nyquil. I'm sorry you've been sick (for 2 weeks!) and hope you now make a speedy recovery! I'm seriously bowing my head and praying for you right now--for divine healing, or direction the right RX that will bring you HEALTH!

I so appreciate your passion for this series, and for co-hosting the WW run. xoxo

A Canadian Girl said...

I probably would have taken the tonic too because a) I trust Marcello and b) I'd be crossing my fingers and hoping that it's better than nothing.

Sending lots of good thoughts your way, Nic. Hope you feel better really soon!

Hafsah said...

Aww, you've been sick?? That's why there's been a lack of posts, huh? Anywho, awesome post, Nic!

Rachel said...

Sorry to hear you've been unwell, Nic. Hope you get better soon!

Missie said...

Happy New Year, Nic!!! I hope you are feeling better.
