Theme Thursdays [Location] – 04Aug11

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.

This week’s theme is

LOCATION (reference to the location where the story is happening)

Honestly I thought this would be an easy one, but I struggled with finding an apt snippet. Finally after a lot of hanging around I found this. If you have just as much trouble as I did, just find any location – a doctor’s office, a park, a room, anything would work fine.

  11. I thought this theme was going to be a little tricky – but not so! Love it when that happens 🙂


  12. Mine was early in the book so it was easy to find:

  13. Yeah, I can definitely see why this one would be hard. It was fairly easy for me, but this book does a good job of constantly pointing out where it takes place., Whether it was tough or not, that was an awesome snippet! Kudos!
