Theme Thursday (3)

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event hosted by Reading Between Pages 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 – VEHICLE

The Humvee engine roared. The man named Koni stuck his head out of its window, waving frantically. Lannes wanted to stay longer, examine the unconscious woman's mind for more traces of Simon, but there was no time. He jumped off the upended truck, reached up to grab Lethe around the waist to lift her down. The green-eyed man lept gracefully from the truck and ran for the Humvee. Lannes did not watch him. He and Lethe raced up the median to the Impala.

  1. A perfect quote for this weeks theme

    I love the cover design and before I forget to mention love your signature as well.

  2. Lot of action in that snippet. Lots of vehicles too.

    My theme post is Here

  3. Dakota- I look forward to reading your books. Who are your favorite authors to read?

  4. I just picked up Kiss and Hell, can't wait to read it. I've heard great things.

    Three vehicles in one snippet! The scene is a little confusing, but I guess the right car to be running to is the Impala.


Sorry about the CAPTCHA folks. I'm getting too much spam again!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read every one that I receive and I appreciate your thoughts.
