Theme Thursday

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 week's theme: Description of a Man/Boy

From Treasure Me by Christine Nolfi

"With hair darker than midnight and eyes to match, he
looked like Lucifer’s younger brother. His easy smile and
faded jeans lent a careless sexuality and his houndstooth
sports coat smelled enticingly of men’s cologne. Not that
she’d dare have a fling with a guy who made a living
exposing people’s secrets. She had enough skeletons to fill
three closets. And send her down the river for five to ten."

This is a good one; but I am very intrigued by her. What does she have to hide? "She had enough skeletons to fill three closets." Thats a lot and lot of secrets to withhold.

He does sound very yummy, I do love the smell of mens cologne!

Mine is from The Rose Without a Thorn, which is a book about Katherine Howard.
