Third Sentence Thursday

Third Sentence Thursday

Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Sniffly Kitty's Mostly Books for glorifying the third sentences of these things we call books.

This week's theme is review the sentence from your current read.

1) Take the book you are reading now and post the third sentence
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your sentence here or if you don't have a blog, just post it in the comments!
4) Prepare for next week's theme, which is going to be the same as this week's!

My Third Sentence:

Still from Wintergirls I am such a slow reader this week, what with all this holiday business.  But I only have a few chapters left so hopefully I can get this done before Christmas itself.  I really don't want to read about anorexia on Christmas dinner LOL:

 "I am strong enough to peel off the paper wrapper, drop a hunk in the pan, and watchlistensmell it melt."  -page 150, Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson


Lia is an anorexic, and the sentence above is about her cooking for her mother and trying to ignore her hunger.  Anorexics are very hungry people, but they choose to ignore their hunger in order to keep themselves thin.  It's all about control, and anorexics have a lot of it when it comes to eating.  It's depressing, really, to deal with a person with an eating disorder.  They keep insisting they are stronger when they do not eat, they have this warped perception of themselves that if thinner, they'll be better. 


  1. hi Nina. that was quite a 3rd sentence and to realize that it was an anorexic speaking was really disturbing. i just hope that people who are battling anorexia will win their fight and be secure in the knowledge that they are beautiful from within and without.congratulations on your nomination by the way and happy holidays! c",)

  2. Anorexia is painful. Christmas dinner is definitely a bad time to think about anorexia heh~~ Hope you finish it! Lia has a lot of control o_0

    Thanks for sharing ^.^


I just have to tell you, ARGH feeds on awesomeness, so if you can, drop him some awesome here, and I promise to give some awesome back :D

Right now, because of my really busy schedule, I'm cutting back on receiving awards. So until further notice, me and ARGH would not be accepting awards. But thank you for thinking of us, we really appreciate it!
