Theme Thursday- Beauty



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)
This week's theme is   

BEAUTY RELATED

(like hair, makeup, lipstick etc)

 I was a bit excited since this week's theme was chosen by yours truly. Then I started looking for my snippet this week and it no longer sounded like a good idea. I am only a few pages into the book and didn't want to ruin anything by looking forward but I finally found something that would work. Go figure, I pick the theme and have the hardest dang time with it. 

 This week mine comes from One Day by David Nicholls. 

One Day (Vintage Contemporaries Original)

"No lipstick but soft, raspberry -coloured lips that she kept tightly closed when she smiled as if she didn't want to show her teeth, which were a little large for her mouth, the front tooth slightly chipped, all of this giving the impression that she was holding something back, laughter or a clever remark or a fantastic secret joke."

You wound up with a good one though! I had a hard time with your theme too. My book is full of science fictional techno-babble. Very little beauty kind of anything going on. But I did manage to come up with something:

I had a tough one with this weeks theme but I guess that is what makes the whole meme interesting. Thanks for such an excellent suggestion.. oh, and you did pick a pretty apt snippet for the theme .
