High spots, or memorable and exciting moments in a book, can make reading more enjoyable and increase the chances that readers will remember the book. They can also help to speed up pacing or create suspense.
Authors can create high spots in several ways. One is by including action scenes or moments of high drama that are gripping to read, often re-read and remembered after finishing the book. Another way is through humor or fun, which give a welcome respite from story tension and are just as memorable.
Not every moment needs to be a high spot, but a few well-placed ones help make a book more enjoyable and likely memorable. High spots can be essential for making books more successful – and enjoyable when used judiciously.
Every book has its high spots- those memorable moments that stand above the rest. The well-written or significant scenes or events that, by their very impact, highlight the whole.
High points are what make books worth reading. They’re the bits we remember long after turning the final page – scenes we go back to repeatedly because they’re so good, funny, moving, or thought-provoking.
And when recommending a book to others? It’s often all about them – pointing out which scene made us laugh/cry/think.
