Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #117

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, my Thirsty Thursday quote is from Lord of Pleasure by Erica Ridley, which is a light-hearted historical romance with scandalous masquerade balls, including a respectable young woman and a rakish earl.

My Thirsty Thursday quote:

At the rear or the chamber beneath the second story promenade, several wide carved doors spilled out onto some sort of stone courtyard, where more waiters in court jester costumes dispensed glass after glass of champagne to the fashionable sophisticates laughing and flirting beneath the stairs. Camellia gulped down the rest of her champagne and returned the empty glass to a passing tray without selecting another. She didn’t dare. This seemed like the sort of wicked wonderland where the wisest course of action would be to keep one’s head.


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. LOL, at least she knew when to cut herself off with the champagne. I have a couple of Erica Ridley’s books still to read from my TBR pile. Fun quote, Lexxie!
