Theme Thursday (1)

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that  is hosted by  Reading Between the Pages this meme 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 is my first week participating in this and I think it's a really neat idea.

The theme for this week is : WEATHER

This is from The Soulkeepers by G.P. Ching:

"The day he died was sunny, as it was most days on the island of Oahu where he lived. Only a few miles away, bikini clad tourist stretched out on the sand of Waikiki beach."

The Soulkeepers


  1. I think I am going to start doing this meme. It sounds like fun! Plus, my current read has a lot of weather related passages for me to choose from!

    I loved the passage you picked!

  2. I was daydreaming about the beach and then recalled someone died at the beginning of the snippet! Terrific Theme Thursdays selection!

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. I will have to look into The Soulkeepers.

  3. That's a beautiful theme! I never heard of the book but I'm going to look it up on amazon!
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Hi, Neri. Thanks for stopping by and for following. I am now following you back. :) Reading your snippet makes me feel warm, which is good since it is rather cool here today.

  5. The weather goes on despite our human trauma.

  6. Cool - I love the interesting contrast btw death and sunniness.

  7. That sounds so nice. Great snippet!

  8. Great snippet. Love how the mention of death and the casual life of tourists are written here...

  9. What a sad comparison, brings tears to my eyes.

    The book I used is sad too, I definitely cried during parts of it, The Vespertine.
