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:

PATHWAYS (reference to roads, streets, passages)

The Marked Son by Shea Berkley

“Within minutes, the rain streaks between the trees as if searching just for me. I finally break through, glad to be out of the woods. With rain pelting down, I run along a dirt path that’s grown muddy and slick, and I nearly slide past the back gate in my rush to safety.”

  5. I'm about 70% finished with it, and so far I've really liked it. Can't wait to see how it ends, though since it's book 1, I know everything won't be wrapped up of course.
