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
This week's theme is: ATMOSPHERE
From The Kult by Shaun Jeffrey
"Like many neighbourhoods clinging to the hub of British cities, the area Jane
lived in was rundown, with discarded trash bags spewing their contents across the
pavement – fodder for the rats and feral cats that prowled the streets once the sun
went down. McDonald’s packaging and the remains of half eaten kebabs discarded
by late night drunks littered the gutters, and the tang of rotten produce and sour piss permeated the air. Dirt and grime coated the walls of the buildings, many of which were boarded up and covered with graffiti, the culprits marking their territory like dogs."
