Theme Thursday - Male Person

This is a meme hosted by kavyen at Reading between Pages.. “Theme Thursdays” will be open from one Thursday to the next and anyone can post it. The rules are simple:

* A theme will be posted each week (on Thursdays)
* Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
* Post it and don’t forget to mention the author and the title of the book
* It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
* Since we may take a few days to finish a book, this event is open for one whole week

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This weeks theme is - Male Person (Father, Grandfather, Brother etc)

' Hey, Dan' said Patrik, patting him on the shoulder with a laugh. Then he picked up Maja. 'Yeah, Pappa is at the top of the list with this little girl,' he said, giving Maja a kiss and rubbing his stubbly beard against her neck, which made her squeal with delight.

  1. That's a sweet moment between father and daughter. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Yes, very sweet.

  3. How nice, a relationship between a father and child where he makes her feel so special. I never knew there were different father's day's. Thanks for letting me know!

  4. What a beautiful teaser! I haven't read any Camila Lackberg's books yet. The Ice Princess is currently sitting on my shelf to be read. What's this one like?
    And our father's day isn't until Sept either!

  5. I thought it captured a lovely moment.

    BG - Slow to draw me in but getting better as I progress.

  6. Sounds like a doting father! I'm not much for whisker rubs myself.

    Thanks for the visit to My Bookshelf.

  7. Wonderful snippet.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Aww, that's a cute one! Thanks for visiting my blog :)
