Themed Thursday (Body Parts)

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event, hosted by, 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
BODY PARTS (Hands, feet, fingers, waist etc)

Here is mine:

What Would Mr Darcy Do?
When Elizabeth finally entered, he wanted nothing so much as to fling himself on his knees before her and beg her to marry him. Her loveliness took his breath away.
- From 'What Would Mr. Darcy Do?' by Abigail Reynolds, page 26

    I'm not crazy about Jane Austen spin-offs, but I think I'd make this one my next guilty pleasure, on the strength of those two sentences. Nothing beats the romance of a besotted Mr. Darcy!

    Here's my snippet for this week, which, unfortunately, isn't half as romantic: Theme Thursday @ Shredded Cheddar
