Theme Thursday -- Beauty

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one Thursday to the next. Hosted by Reading Between Pages.

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 week’s theme is – BEAUTY

I had trouble with this one. A superhero/zombie story doesn’t have a lot of ‘beauty’ going on. I did the best I could. See what you think.

The woman on the roof, her outfit was that tight and showed off that much. And she had a lot to show off. I say this as someone who deals with some of the hottest women on Earth every week as part of my day job. Black straps and belts crisscrossed her body, accenting her curves, a lot like the utility harness I wore. But mine was store-bought and I don’t think there was a quarter-inch of material in hers that didn’t need to be there.

Kavyen - This one was okay but not great. There is a lot of action but the characters all bored me. I liked Generation Dead by Daniel Waters. I also liked The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan has some flaws that were a sticking point with me but both this one and the next left me wondering what happened next so they must get something right.
