Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookworms. So many of the books we read have food or drinks in them, some we’d love to try, and others we’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 our logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to us 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.
My quote this week comes from Kristen Ashley’s Lady Luck, which I’m currently re-reading. In this scene Ty Walker, having just been released from 5 years in prison, is understandably hungry for real food. 😉
“Coffee,” Walker said over me. “Now.”
She nodded quickly.
He kept speaking. “Bacon, crispy, double order. Sausage links, double order. Four pancakes. Four eggs, over medium. Four slices of bread. Hash browns, double order. After the coffee.”
She blinked at him and it hit me that was the most he’d said since our hourlong ride from he prison to this diner consisted of no talk at all. And it also hit me that maybe he actually didn’t know any verbs since he till hadn’t used any but one and that was to tell Shift he was out. Even so, he’d only used two words to do that.
The she looked at me.
“I don’t know what I want to eat yet but a Diet Coke would be sweet. I’ll take a look at the menu. If you can get my guy here his food, though, that would be good,” I said to her. “He’s, uh… hungry,” I finished, pointing out the obvious since he ordered enough to feed four.
