Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme that Proud Book Nerd hosts.
How to play along…
1. Take the book you are currently reading and post the third sentence,
2. Share your thoughts on the sentence.
3. Post a link to your blog in the link list (Leave it in the comments if you don’t have a blog)
4. Visit the other blogs to check out their third sentence.
Book: The Wind in the Willows
3rd sentence: “Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.”
Thoughts: This sentence really captures the essence of spring after a long and dismal winter. I love the description of the spirit of divine discontent and longing. This is the kind of sentence to make you look outside and hope for a beautiful day, the kind of day where you set your chores aside and enjoy it.
(I typed this blog up on Tuesday and scheduled it to post. It’s Wednesday and I finished reading the book above, so I’m going to include the one I’m about to start, too.)
Book: The Radleys by Matt Haig
3rd sentence: Indeed, at three o’clock in the morning in the village of Bishopthorpe, it is easy to believe the lie indulged in by its residents –that it is a place for good and quiet people to live good and quiet lives.
Thoughts: I’m immediately intrigued. My first question, WHAT is going on in this village? I can’t wait to read more!
