Theme Thursdays [Trees] – 25Aug11

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

TREES (Plants/Greenery )

I am trying out the linky list for the first time this week. Please leave a comment with your link if it does not work fine. Also I do need suggestions for themes. So pour them in!!!

My THURSDAY THEME for TREES is here and I got a couple this week. 🙂

Had lunch with Lucy in her London pied-a-terre. She gave me a lovely pot of hyacinths.

On the cherry tree sat two woodpigeons as fat as gray cushions, and hopping on the lawn was a blackbird looking for worms among the daisies.

  1. Hmmm…I’ll have to see if I can come up with new themes. How about pets/animals?

  2. Great theme – I love trees and Mr Linky worked fine.

    Themes – hard to remember what we’ve done.

    Music/Sound
    Textures
    Smells
    Vistas…….i.e. ‘ I looked out and saw..”

  3. Good one, like the title of the book too.

  4. I enjoyed your choice. I like the trees one. The suggestions made are awesome. I love the animal one. With all the shifter books I won’t have a hard time at all. LOL. It is hard to remember which have been done. How about unusual names? Sometimes I read a name I wonder where the author got that from. Seasons and also seasonal ones. A school theme since all the kids are going back to school now.

  5. Mr Linky seems to be working fine- apart from we can’t see whose linked to follow without clicking to enter our own link.

    Themes (ignore any that have already been done):
    Sky
    Children
    Books
    Music
    Learning

  6. Great theme this week!

    Let’s see…I’m not sure which ones we may have already done but here’s a couple…

  7. I love the title of your book, I have to put that one on my TBR list.

    Weather related, sun, rain, snow, etc.

    I’m all out of ideas.

  8. Yes, Mr. Linky worked, although when I didn’t see the list on the page, I was worried…LOL

    I love trees! I didn’t find my excerpt right away, but then on page 9, there it was!
