Welcome to another Theme Thursdays, hosted by Reading Between Pages, in which we “spark” our creativity by discovering themes in the books we’re reading.
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
TREES (Plants/Greenery )
Today I’m sharing from a book on my list for next week. Rock Bottom, by Erin Brockovich, is a fictional tale from the woman who fought PG&E and won.
In this excerpt, the character has come back to her home town, where unpleasant events had transpired. She is headed to her grandmother’s house:
Gram Flora’s house was across the hollow, on the edge of town, as far away from the coal mine as you could get. Situated in the middle of a twenty-acre apple orchard that had been in my grandfather’s family, the Hightowers, for generations, it had always been my safe haven. p. 9
What excerpts did you discover today? I hope you’ll pop in and share.
