Theme Thursday - Smile - Gatsby

Theme Thursdays
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

SMILE (Laugh, Grin, Giggle, Guffaw, etc)

The Great Gatsby 

turned right to this one.

"We've met before," muttered Gatsby. His eyes glanced momentarily at me and his lips parted with an abortive attempt at a LAUGH." The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Oh, I like that one...and Gatsby is a great character. I always picture him as Robert Redford, now that I've seen the movie...LOL

Here's MY THURSDAY THEMES POST

@kavyen and landside I am enjoying it! I read it once before when i was young and remember not liking it but I understand it better now. I started reading it again because of the vlogbrothers.

@Asimpleloveofreading - I will check out yours soon!

@Christina and Sherrie - Thanks for stopping by!

You know, I made it through an English degree and never read this book. Something about that seems entirely wrong! Nice snippet, though! I like the "aborted smile"!
