Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #147

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 Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis. My quote is from the beginning of the story, Colbie and Spencer haven’t known each other long, but the chemistry between them is electric! And who doesn’t love chicken wings and fried zucchini?

My Hungry Hearts quote:

“So… we both fantasize about going phoneless?” His smile said he fantasized about other things as well, and her body did that inner quiver thing again. She slipped her phone inside the baggie and then dropped it all back into her purse.
“Next,” Spence said and pressed the ice bag to her elbow.
Finn came back with a huge platter of chicken wings and deep-fried zucchini. Colbie eyed the platter and then Spence’s extremely fit body with disbelief.
He shrugged. “That’s what the gym’s for.” Colbie couldn’t even look at a French fry without gaining weight, but her stomach growled, reminding her she hadn’t eaten since the sad pack of three whole peanuts on the plane.
They dove into the food and she asked one of the questions that were killing her. “Tell me about this amazing building.” “It is pretty amazing, isn’t it?” He smiled. “The fountain actually came first. The building was built around it back in the mid-1800s, when Cow Hollow was still actually filled with cows.”

  1. My book bestie has been poking me about trying Jill Shalvis and when I tried her last one I fell in love. Her writing is just wonderful.

    Great post! Come to think of it…there is a lot of food in books!

  2. Great idea for meme. I love foodie books and I could quote off so many of them. One of the best is all the books by Caroline James. She worked in the food industry herself so she knows her food and she is a great story teller.
