Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts~ Second Chance Summer

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 Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. In this scene, Taylor unexpectedly runs into Henry at the bakery. {pg. 97-98}

Second Chance Summer

“Right,” I said quickly, realizing I was a customer in a shop, and the fact that I was supposed to know what I wanted should not have been a shock to me. “Um…” I saw a platter of cupcakes with multicolored pastel icing, and I immediately looked away from them. Cupcakes reminded me all too much of my birthday, the slapdash celebration, the news about my dad. Searching for something– anything else– I tapped on the case in front of the next thing I saw. “A dozen of these.” I looked closer and saw that what I’d just pointed to were, unfortunately, oatmeal raisin cookies. I hated oatmeal in all forms, but especially when people tried to dress it up as dessert; Gelsey refused to eat raisins, and none of the rest of my family had ever been huge fans. I had just ordered a dessert that nobody in our house would most likely eat.
“Really.” Henry didn’t exactly phrase it as a question, and he raised his eyebrows at me. “Oatmeal?”
I just stared at him for a moment. There was no way Henry remembered that, five years ago, I hated oatmeal cookies. It just wasn’t possible. “Yeah,” I said slowly. “Oatmeal. Why?”
“No reason,” he said as he took down another green bakery box from the shelf behind him and began transferring in the cookies two at a time. “I just didn’t think you liked them.”

Thursday Quotables~ Anna and the French Kiss

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 Stephanie Perkins’s Anna and the French Kiss.

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

1

 What my parents never considered is that I just wanted a choice.

2

It takes a moment for me to recognize the symptoms, but my heels are bouncing and my stomach is fluttering. I’m finally excited to be out!

3

Not only have I been caught with someone I had no right to be kissing– and not only was it the greatest moment of my life– but he’s rejecting me.
In front of everyone.

How many time can our emotions be tied to someone else’s– be pulled and stretched and twisted– before they snap? Before they can never be mended again?
