All books would be nothing without themes... Intentionally or unintentionally all writers fill their books with hidden or obvious themes.  These themes sometimes touch our hearts and othertimes make us hate the book.  But all the more, themes are the MOST important component of a book.  Without them there's no meaning to the book.

So this week your very own Mahi is bring you the first time....



Yes! With Theme of the Week, I'll pick a theme for every week or two, and you all have to come up with the names of the books that have that theme.  It doesn't have to be a very obvious theme but any book that you think even vaguely dealt with the theme.

This week's theme is FRIENDSHIP! Yes friendship, one of the most beautiful relationships in the world... what we are all here are for!

You can put the names of the books as you think of them, it'll make the thread even more interesting! 

I'll start with "The Kite Runner." One of the most predominent themes of the book was Friendship and loyalty.  Although the firendhip wasn't discovered in its sweetest meaning, but that was one of the most important themes.

So over to you guys and gals!

  Have FUN!!

Another book that stands out with the theme of friendship is Harry Potter... Ron, Hermione, Harry Trio can do anything for each other.  Of course there are misunderstandings here and there but they stand up for each other all the time!

Jessica Darling series [sloppy firsts, second helpings, etc]

It starts off when Jessica's bestfriend Hope moves away.. and now even though Jessica hangs out with her other friends [who she secretly hates] misses Hope.. but she befriends the charming and enchanting Marcus Flutie..who is the infamous druggie/manwhore of her school.

I think "Monique and the Mango Rains" deals with this theme very well too.  It's not completely a story about friendship but friendship is a big theme as a white woman from peace corps goes to Mali and works with Monique who's a "doctor" there.  And how she learns so much about her and her strengths.
