Welcome to another Theme Thursday event, hosted by Reading Between Pages.

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 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

RECREATION (Any spot that you would go for a break – Parks, resorts, even a library ;) )


I was surprised that I didn’t have to look far to find an excerpt in Little Black Dress, by Susan McBride.

She glanced at her watch and her pulse did a cha-cha.  “I have to go,” she whispered to Vivien Reed, her assistant, loud enough to be heard above the chatter and the harpist fingering Mozart from the corner of the Vault Room in the City Museum.  The caterers were top-notch, and the swing band was set to play in the adjoining space once dessert had been served.  p. 5.


Now I’m off to discover what the rest of you have found.  I hope you’ll pop in here, too.
