Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #139

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 Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis. I don’t know how she does it, but she always manages to include some delicious sounding food and drinks in her stories. As well as condoms, so she’s featured almost every time I read one of her books 🙂

My Hungry Hearts quote:

Holiday Wishes cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews - Weekend Wrap-up


He had a plate full of food from the sideboard buffet. Sean slid his gaze to his brother as he shoved in some French toast and bacon. “Real upset over it, are you?” “Devastated,” Finn said and craned his neck to eyeball the food platters. “Think we can go back up there for seconds?” 
“Are you serious?” “Yeah. The French toast’s amazing here. That innkeeper, Lotti? She’s incredible. She’s got a small generator and she used it to cook for us. Have you eaten yet?” “No,” Sean said. “I haven’t. Because I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out how to save your wedding. Where’s Pru?”
“She and the girls are about to go have mimosas in the thankfully gas-powered hot tub.”
Sean stared at him. “Does she know about the flooding and mudslides closing down her wedding venue?
“Yep.” “And she’s okay?” “No,” Finn said. “Which is why she’s inhaling alcohol at the asscrack of dawn. Listen, she’s trying to have a good attitude about this and so am I.” He shoved in some more French toast. “She said as long as we’r in the same place with the people we love, that’s good enough.”
