Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #107
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 Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote is from my current read, Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns by Tara Lain. There is a lot of tenderness so far in this story, and also some shame and need to hide. Danny is a real cowboy, working on a dude ranch, and the newest guests – or one of the newest guest at least, Laurie, – really, really appeals to him.
My Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote:
The last strains of “Don’t Fence Me In” drifted above the campfire and disappeared into the night sky like the rising sparks.
Surely no one else on earth was singing that song. Too cornball for words. Still, Laurie sighed and patted his stomach as he leaned back against Grove. Hamburgers cooked on the open fire, french fries supplied by Felicia, beans and salad, all served on metal plates – dinner fit for a dude. He sipped the last of the re wine in his metal cup – that detail supplied by Grove to all who wanted it.
Grove took mouthful of wine and whispered, “Not sure if this cup is reminiscent of the old West or prison, but I’ve gotta say, it’s a first for me.” He drained it.
Laurie snorted. “It’s still good pinot noir.”
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.
