Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts~ The Winner’s Curse

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts - (un)Conventional Bookviews

I’m participating in Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts, hosted by Lexxie over at {un}Conventional Book Views again this week.

What is Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts? Well here’s a description from Lexxie’s site:

The idea of this feature 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. Each week there is a link-up for the current post so that it’s easy to find other participants as well.

This week I am featuring The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. This scene takes place between Kestrel and Arin. {pg. 321}

The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)

She blurted out something that had nothing to do with anything. “Do you know how to make honeyed half-moons?”
“Do I…?” He lowered the map. “Kestrel, I hate to disappoint you, but I was never a cook.”
“You know how to make tea.”
He laughed. “You do realize that boiling water is within the capabilities of anybody?”
“Oh.” Kestrel moved to leave, feeling foolish. What had possessed her to ask such a ridiculous question anyway?
“I mean, yes,” Arin said. “Yes, I know how to make half-moons.”

Thursday Quotables

Thursday Quotables~ The Kill Order


Because I love sharing quotes from books, the more random the better, I decided to join Bookshelf Fantasies for Thursday Quotables to highlight some great quotes from the books I’m reading.

This week I’m featuring quotes from James Dashner’s The Kill Order.

The Kill Order (Maze Runner, #0.5)


Mark just hoped that one day it could all go back to normal. Maybe even during his lifetime.


Mark closed his eyes, tried to tamp down the rage that was building inside him like a nuclear reaction. How much could he take in one day?


Venturing out into the complete unknown. He doesn’t know which is stronger, the excitement or the fear.


Mark started dragging him down the hallway, aware on  some level that he himself had crossed into territory from which he wasn’t sure he’d come back.
