Theme Thursday - Any Action

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that is hosted by Reading between Pages. It 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 week's theme is ANY ACTION (ex: go, walk, close, clap, etc.)

  3. We just had a downpour, and if I were to go for a sprint across my yard, I would be kicking up mud also. Fun action words.

    Sounds like one of those "feisty" Romance heroines. ;-) Makes me think how often it is they (rather than the typically "active" heroes) who are responsible for a lot of the action in their books.

  8. I hope she wasn't wearing that white dress!!

    Great choice - great action.
