Theme Thursday - Exiled Edition

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event hosted by Reading Between the Pages that 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 very related to the ear – any action that you do with your ear.

I'm still reading Exiled, so here is my 'ear' quote from Exiled by M. R. Merrick!

The small bird chirped in my ear, gripping so tightly to my shoulder I felt its claws pierce my skin.

"Sorry, I'm a little busy running for my life here. You're supposed to be some impressive little creature; why don't you do something?"
