"Theme Thursday"

Theme Thursdays [Body Parts] – 14Jul11

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 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

BODY PARTS (Hands, feet, fingers, waist etc)

 I stroked her tiny head, fragile beneath my fingers. Her fur was of medium length and stood on end, giving her a wild look, though she was totally docile in my lap. Eyes half shut, she was tucked in the crook of my leg with one little paw against my knee. pg. 89.

  7. Haven't seen this one of Barbara Delinsky's - something to look forward to.

  8. How sweet! I pictured a cat too...


  9. This sounds good! I haven't read a Delinsky book in a long time.

    My first thought was that it was a cat . . . but in the character's place, I know I'd prefer a dog! It's a very sweet scene. =)

    I'm very late this week, but my snippet is from another book in which someone bonds with a pet. I hope you can check it out: Theme Thursday.
