Theme Thursday

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:

BODY PARTS (Hands, feet, fingers, waist etc)

 

Pale Demon by Kim Harrison

 

“Encouraged, my head tilted, pulling away from him with the unsaid language of lovers that demanded he follow. And he did, spinning a thrill through me from his lips to my toes. My pulse jumped, and I pushed against him, my body molding itself to him.”

    This is a good one. I agree that the "unspoken language of lovers" is communication through the body. =)

    I'm very late this week, but here's my own Theme Thursday snippet.

  2. Actually, for me it was posted before I went to bed Wednesday night, so I went ahead and found something real quick to post. The kindle makes it quick and easy to find a post sometimes. :)

  8. I do love the covers of the books in the paranormal romance/fantasy genre. I really like how this one is showing Rachel displaying her powers!
