Theme Thursday-July 4th







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

JULY 4th (Celebrations, Independence, Freedom, Flag, Fireworks etc)

 My snippet comes from Specials by Scott Westerfeld. 

Specials (The Uglies)"The skyline of New Pretty Town was aglow, rockets shooting high and bursting into vast, sparkling flowers of red and purple. The fireworks were back."
