Theme Thursday

Theme ThursdaysTheme Thursdays is a fun weekly event, hosted by Reading Between Pagesthat 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)

This week's theme is "colours"

"I pictured Kat in her house, perched high on stilts as all the island houses were. It was the colour of lemons. I could see her sitting at the long oak table in the kitchen where over the years she, Hepzibah, and my mother had cracked and picked then thousand blue crabs. 'The Three Egreteers,' my father had called them."
p16, The Mermaid Chair, by Sue Monk Kidd
