Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event hosted by Reading Between Pages 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 Thursday’s)
- 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.
This week’s theme is
JULY 4th (Celebrations, Independence, Freedom, Flag, Fireworks etc)
For this week you need to choose a snippet that best relates to July 4th. It could be anything that strikes you, but make sure you explain why you chose that particular snippet.
I thought I was going to have a really hard time with this week's theme, but then I remembered a book I picked up recently from Goodwill. I was pretty sure I could find something about fireworks in a book titled Fireworks Over Toccoa!
Fireworks Over Toccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff
"She could hear it whistling as it climbed above the grassy field into which she was walking. Then, boom-boom, even louder again, and the trail exploded into thousands of beads of light, each one shooting out on its own dazzling trajectory, filling the entire blue and white canvas over the meadow with shimmering silver tinsel. Lily just stood in the field, looking straight up, slowly, reflexively, turning, as the firework continued expanding, engraving the sky."
