Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #70
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.
Today, I’m sharing a delicious hungry hearts quote from Tara Lain’s Beauty Inc, which I reviewed just a couple of days ago 😉 This very modern, and LGBTQIA, re-telling of Beauty and the Beast is so well done! I fell in love with Belle instantly, he’s a great character, smart, strong, loyal and humble.
My Hungry Hearts Quote:
An hour later he was propping his eyes open, but his stomach was one seriously happy organ. Wanda had stuffed him full of shish kebab, grape leaves, a huge pile of Greek salad with wonderful tangy dressing and piles of feta cheese, tomatoes that tasted like the real thing, cucumbers so fresh they snapped, and hone-dripping baklava for dessert. He held his stomach. “I feel like someone wheeled a Trojan horse full of food into my stomach. But I’d eat it all again, it was so delicious. Thank you, Wanda.”
“My pleasure, dear.”
They’d talked about everything from trees to tattoos to tabouli at dinner, but very little about Belle – which suited him fine.
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.
