Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post.
The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.
This week, my hungry hearts quote is from Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis, and I have to say this quote is really well done! Both because Mark is lusting after more than food, and because he feels so good to be back home with his family!
My Hungry Hearts quote:
He needed food, sleep, and some mind-numbing sex. Since only the first two had any chance of actually happening, he opened the fridge and hit the mother lode. The one bonus about coming back here to live so his girls would have family around during his crazy work schedule was that his mom and sisters loved to cook. And since they also seemed to think that the way to show love was through food, even more so since his dad had died a few years back after a shockingly short battle with cancer, there was always, always more food in the fridge than an army could consume.
He started pulling out containers, shifting mental gears from work to the state of affairs of his life. Being back here had never been part of his plan. He’d been career military, thriving on the danger and adrenaline. He’d been away from home for long stretches of time, but he knew that it’d been exactly that that kept his family intact. His absence.
