Theme Thursday - Any Action - The Paper Garden

Theme Thursdays
An event hosted by Reading Between the Pages.
Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event 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

ANY ACTION (go, walk, close, clap etc)

The Paper Garden: An Artist Begins Her Life's Work at 72My THURSDAY THEME for ANY ACTION is here.
 
"However ugly she thinks she can make herself, a seventeen-year-old is beautiful and young.  Mr. Billiers found her deliciously rude. Across the dinner table he flirted casually. from page 72 of The Paper Garden by Molly Peacock

That is a cute action word, who doesn't flirt once in awhile.

Thanks for your visit today.

What a fascinating quote! It makes me think of a mischievous and much lighter-hearted D.H. Lawrence!

I've read some good reviews of The Paper Garden but have had no luck finding it here.

Fun bit of action - great choice.
