Theme Thursday

Kavyen at Reading Between Pages hosts Theme Thursday. Anyone can participate. The rules are simple:

•A theme will be posted each week
•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).

This week's theme is FACIAL PARTS (eyes, ears, nose, lips etc).

"Helen turned her head slowly and surveyed her daughter with eyes as impassive as those of an animal long in captivity."
~p. 160, "The Debut" by Anita Brookner


  1. Good one!

  2. Well it was obviously worth the search. Great extract. I haven't read any Anita Brookner but she's an author that is always hanging in the wings. I'll get to one of her books one day!

  3. Hi!
    Sounds interesting. Haven't read this author before. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  4. Very interesting. I like the description.

    My theme post is HERE

    Wow! The author manages to say so much about one mother using less than a handful of words.
