Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #138
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’s Hungry Heart quote is from the amazing Maggie Stiefvater’s All the Crooked Saints. That book was filled with so much amazing I am already eager for a re-read. Or a listen.
Hungry Hearts quote:
She was certain he had not eaten yesterday. In her distress, she had not cooked for anyone since Daniel’s vanishing. The other pilgrims had fended for themselves; they had a kitchen of their own, after all, and leftovers. But Tony had not been given food and could not have fit into her kitchen to cook for himself. “I’ll make sure he gets something,” Marisita said, feeling more impatient than she sounded. Time pressed heavily on her and her mouth felt dry when she imagined Daniel possible without water. But when she remembered that Tony probably had not eaten since the day before, guilt won out over her impatience. She could be quick. “Here’s your empanada.” “Empanada,” Pete repeated. “Gosh, thanks. It looks great. See you later! Sorry about the dirt on the chair! Sorry about the dirt on the chair!”
After he had gone, Marisita hastily prepared Tony some food. She assembled a pile of crusty bolillos, a cantaloupe cut into a bright orange moon, a covered bowl of fried red beans, a thermos of creamy minguiche, two empanadas, three dark-red tomatoes from Nana’s garden, and a fried bit of beef that had looked a little friendlier the night before. Although it would have been a tremendous amount of food for an ordinary man to eat, Marisita thought it nonetheless seemed insufficient to feed a giant. It was better than eating only memories, though.
