- 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:
RECREATION (Any spot that you would go for a break – Parks, resorts, even a library )
"Lewis Lake amounted to little more than a man-made mud hole with just enough fish swimming around in it to mollify local anglers. Ten feet at its deepest point, it froze through completely each winter." (location 2062-64)
Synopsis (from Goodreads.com):
Becky Howard is a teen under pressure. Pressure from her best friend not to breathe a word about the abuse she's suffering by her mother. Pressure from her sister to understand her marital difficulties. Pressure from her boyfriend to get more physical than she's ready for. And pressure from the rumors about her boyfriend that are eroding her trust in him. As she prepares for the biggest track meet of her life, Becky's about to learn that sometimes growing up is about more than having sex, and that clinging to ideals might not be as helpful as learning to expect whatever is MOST LIKELY.
NOTE: MOST LIKELY is a work of Christian fiction, but not in the worst sense of the genre. There are no embedded sermons or salvation plans; it's more of a slice-of-life novel about growing up, centering on a Christian main character.
