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’s quote is from Taint by S.L. Jennings. I’ve never had this combo but I admit that it sounds like a tasty brunch!
She turns back around and sets the bag on the counter. “Well, it’s your lucky day, because honestly, this is as much of a treat for me as it will be for you.” She begins to unpack her paper sack, spreading things on the marble countertop. “First–breakfast! Your friend Riku–who is a total, freakin’ hottie, by the way–hooked me up with my favorite brunch food ever, fried chicken and waffles!” She uncovers a large Tupperware container and the mouthwatering scents of fried batter, spices, and syrup fill the room. My stomach rumbles in approval.
“You eat chicken and waffles?” I ask, stepping forward to get a better look at the piping-hot, deep-fried fare.
“Hell yes!” she exclaims proudly. “I can’t even tell you how many time I’ve gone to Melba’s in Harlem. You ever been?”
She slaps my bare chest lightly and damn near squeaks. “You have to let me take you! It’s da bomb!”
“And apparently you have to go back in time to 1996 to eat there,” I gibe, causing her to give me another playful slap.
Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote. Have a terrific Thursday and don’t forget to link up.
