Theme Thursday - The Keeper of the Isis Light Edition

Theme Thursdays
Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one Thursday to the next and hosted by Reading Between Pages. 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.
March is going to be all about making life easy. This month we will do ‘Pick what you see first‘ themes.
Open the book you are reading –> Open the page number that has your birthdate (I was born on the 4th so that is Page 4) –> pick the first sentence from it and post the snippet. Sorry, but ‘No Ebooks’ this time as well. With this week’s theme, we will also get to know your birthdate 

BIRTHDATE - First snippet from the page that is your birthdate

My current non-ebook is the Keeper of the Isis Light by Monica Hughes. I loved Monica Hughes when I was younger, so this is a bit of a throw-back, but I remembered that I never read the final book in the Isis series, so I'm starting over. I was born on the 4th, so page 4, here we go!

"Sometimes Olwen felt stupid about her report. Why would anybody parsecs away on Earth be interested in what she ate for breakfast, how she was doing in celestial mechanics, what she felt about life in general?"


  1. the book cover: i don't know if its a bit creepy due to the choice of art media or what, but if seems like the woman is a bit disturbed about something. Nice snippet.
