Theme Thursdays, created by Kavyen @ Reading Between Pages, 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.
This week my addition to Theme Thursday comes from page 5 of Beaglemania by Linda O. Johnston:
Following Officer Gibbons, I hurried out of the well-insulated backyard shed that appeared so inconsequential from the outside - a moderate-sized steel structure that looked like a rural barn's younger brother, complete with red sides resembling painted wood.
