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….

  1. Great choice for this week. Even details and explains the painful condition. Btw, I picked Lisa Unger’s book only after seeing it on your blog last week. Am enjoying it so far.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
