Theme Thursday

Theme Thursdays
Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event, hosted byReading 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 "male"

"Mesha looked taller and broader than I remembered and the typically mischievous and boyish demeanour he once had was now gone. He seemed older and more serious but his hug was just as warm as the one that he'd given me that day on the platform when he left home to serve in the JNA."
p156, Goodbye Sarajevo, by Atka Reid & Hana Schofield

    I can't tell whether Mescha is a brother, a childhood friend, or a suitor. But I suppose that doesn't matter, because here he becomes what every soldier aspires to be, which is Everyman. Thanks for sharing this teaser! =)
