Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts~ The Masked City

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 Masked City by Genevieve Cogman. This scene takes place while Kai is imprisoned. {pg. 159}

The Masked City (The Invisible Library, #2)

Kai woke to the taste of brandy, and swallowed on reflex before the thought of poison crossed his mind.
The dreadful constant pressure and burn of chaos had gone. For the moment, that thought dominated all others. The cold stone and cool metal against his skin were gentle caresses by comparison, and the drag on his arms was unimportant. He was able to think clearly again, to perceive, to reason.
Someone was supporting him and holding his head up, tilting the flask of brandy against his lips. Kai let his eyes flicker open for a fraction of a second, just long enough to see who it was and where they were.

Thursday Quotables~ Holding Up the Universe

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 Jennifer Niven’s Holding Up the Universe.

Holding Up the Universe

1

So I ask you, What can high school do to me that hasn’t already been done?

2

My body might just explode into a million pieces of shimmering, glittering light.

… Jack saunters past like I’m invisible.
And maybe I am.
Like everyone else in his life.
Just one more person he can’t see.

Top 2 Things I Miss About Libby
by Jack Masselin
1. The way I feel when I’m with her. Like I just swallowed the sun and it’s shooting out of every pore.
2. Everything.

“…All the smiling and the faking and pretending to be what you think people want you to be. That’s what keeps you isolated. That’s what screws you up. You need to try being a real person.”
