Theme Thursdays [Atmosphere] – 28Apr11

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays 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.

The randomly selected theme for this week is suggested by Bev from My Readers Block .

And this week’s theme is ……..


ATMOSPHERE
something that suggests “spooky” or “tense” or “romantic”…etc.


My THURSDAY THEME for ATMOSPHERE (suggesting festive) is below. I thought I will have a tough time with this theme, but surprisingly it was EASY. Yippe!

The biting winter wind pounded against Piper’s body as she kept her head down and continued trudging up Ninth Avenue. Christmas wreaths and colored lights draped store-fronts and restaurant windows. The sidewalk was crowded with workers and shoppers rushing to buy present or meet friends and business associates for holiday luncheons.
Taken from page 17 – “To Have and To Kill” by “Mary Jane Clark”

Leave a comment here with a link to your post. Also don’t forget to leave your theme suggestions as well. Do make sure to visit and comment on other Theme Thursdays.

Sadly, the ‘Theme Party’ ends with this week. I received so many wonderful suggestions for themes that I will be doing the theme party every now and then. So please continue to throw in your suggestions. Thank you all for making the ‘Theme Party’ a huge success….

    • I enjoyed this month so much as well. Thanks to all the wonderful suggestions we had. I was hoping to do ‘people’ as a theme for May. Let’s see how that goes.

  2. This one was kind of hard, but I feel like the one I picked is somewhat ominous 🙂

  9. I enjoyed your meme and look forward to playing again whenever you host another.
    It also added a little extra fun while reading – trying to find a quote I liked best to use for that week’s theme. Thank you.

    For Atmosphere, I went with tense or spooky:
