Theme Thursday (36)

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 - ENDING WORDS (Pick 2 snippets that have matching last 2 words i.e if one sentence has WIFE the other should have LIFE or KNIFE etc)

I looked straight ahead and rested the case on my lap. I needed to think of anything other than the beautiful woman seated beside me. Da. Like the reason I was here.

"You promised to return for me. And then--what? What, Alexi? You drop off the face of the planet. You disappear into the backend of the American nowhere." The gun's muzzle jabbed my temple as the carriage turned.

  3. That was easy wasn't it? As always great quotes and even greater cover. Ok, I am going to steal this cover for this week's cover meme..
