Welcome to another Thursday Sparks, in which we celebrate Theme Thursdays, 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.
I am just glad I have so many suggestions to pick from. This week’s theme is unique and is suggested by The Book Gatherer. So are you ready for:
HEALTH (Health / Wellbeing / Illness / Disease/ etc )
Today I’m spotlighting a new review book called Space, by Emily Sue Harvey.
In this excerpt, the character Deede has consulted a doctor about a fertility issue:
“You have polycystic ovaries, Deede,” Dr. Wingo said gravely.
“What’s that?” I asked as the old familiar dread snaked through me.
“That’s a disease where the ovaries produce an egg, although it’s not a mature egg usually, but the hormones are unbalanced. So the egg never releases. The egg then becomes a cyst.” p. 21-22
Maybe TMI? What did you find in your books today? Come on by….
