Welcome to another edition of Theme Thursdays, our opportunity to spark some enthusiasm for writing styles in our current reads.

Our event is hosted by Reading Between Pages, and here’s how to join in:

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.

Thanks for all your wonderful wishes and sorry I could not visit all of your quotes last week because of all the birthday madness. The birthday was such a fun event and I will be posting some pics tomorrow.

This week’s theme is suggested by Cat from Tell me a Story. She posts some great reviews and if you have not visited her already, you should. So with no further delay, this week’s theme is



Today I grabbed my up-next book The Hazards of Hunting While Heartbroken, by Mari Passananti, a story of a head hunter left broken-hearted on the verge of thirty.  Managing other people’s lives seems suddenly ironic.

I couldn’t find any excerpts with music…it doesn’t seem to be that kind of book!  But cell phones…yes!


I decide to go outside and use my cell phone.  Carol’s yelling at someone on speaker in her office.  Her back is to me, and she doesn’t notice me slink by, but her assistant’s eyebrows go up as she watches me tiptoe past.  I dive into the elevator, descend to the lobby, push through the revolving doors, make sure I don’t know anyone within a twenty-foot radius, and dial.

It rings twice before a deep, manly voice answers, “Oscar Thornton.” p. 21.

What did the rest of you find?  Anything exciting?  Please stop by and leave some links!

  1. An innovative twist to this week’s theme by using cellphones. At times a cellphone ringing is music and many time a noise :). Looks like ‘Oscar Thornton’ is an intriguing person


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