Theme Thursdays 4/21/11

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:  
  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)  Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

 This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

And this week’s theme is ……..


 "The golden light gathered around her again.  She was back in the meadow and so very sleepy.  She lay down on the grass.  The breeze blew over her, whispering her name, and she fell into a deep sleep."  ~ page 237, Quicksilver by Joy Spraycar

Please share your Theme Thursdays link with me so I can return the visit or leave it in the comments.  Have a great day.
