Theme Thursday (25)

Theme Thursdays

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 Thursdays)
  • 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 – PATHWAYS (reference to roads, streets, passages, etc)

As I walked home, balancing on the seawall that kept the Vaders' yard and my yard from falling into the lake, my cell phone rang. I pulled it out of my backpack without hurrying.[...]

The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols

  2. Wow! That's an awesome passage and as I was reading it there were the sounds of waves coming from your blog too! How clever are you!

  3. Awesome post. I love how the sound and you passage match! The book looks like a fun beach read.

  6. I like your choice - a seawall is very different.

    Happy reading!

  7. i sitting here picturing the seawall and trying to make the connection and i just simply said. is the seawall representing the path way? OOKKKAAYY! canada has seawalls. i think that was where i was introduced to them while on a houseboat.
