Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #79

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.

For once, I actually have a quote that is a Thirsty Thursday quote – there are different drinks mentioned, and it’s from one of my recent contemporary romance reads that I loved! Swear on This Life by Renée Carlino was a beautiful story of second chances, and it was so beautifully written, too.

My Thirsty Thursday Quote

Swear on This Life cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews



“You still reading that book?” Cara asked as she walked by me while I folded laundry on the couch.
“Yeah,” I said, and then followed her into the kitchen. I sat down at the bar while she took out ingredients for a smoothie. It was noon, and I knew she had a class to teach in an hour.
“You haven’t really been eating, Emi.”
“No, I have been. I’m fine. Hey, do you want to make Bloody Mary’s instead?” I asked.
She laughed. “Are you becoming an alcoholic?”

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.

  1. I loved that story! And that part was funny… she wanted to get so drunk! I personally think Bloody Marys in the morning are perfect!!! YUMMY. Smoothies are meals, but a Bloody Mary is an appetizer 🙂
