Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts~ Love & Gelato

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 Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch. In this scene, Lina has just met Ren and is at his house after meeting his mother, another American living in Italy. {pg. 73-74}

Love & Gelato

Odette reappeared, carrying two cans of orange Fanta and an opened sleeve of cookies. “Here you go, Ren foes through about a pack of these a day. You’ll love them.”
I took one. It was a sandwich cookie with vanilla on one side and chocolate on the other. An Italian Oreo. I bit into it and a choir of angels started singing. Did Italian food have some kind of fairy dust that made it way better than its American counterparts?
“Give her more,” Ren said. “She looks like she’s going to eat her arm.”
“Hey–” I started, but then Odette handed me the rest of the cookies and I was too busy eating to properly defend myself.

Thursday Quotables

Thursday Quotables~ The BFG


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 Roald Dahl’s The BFG.



“Dreams,” he said, “is very mysterious things. They is floating around in the air like little wispy-misty bubbles. And all the time they is searching for sleeping people.”


“Ah, but they is not killing their own kind,” the BFG said. “Human beans is the only animals that is killing their own kind.”


Considering she was meeting a giant for the first time in her life, the Queen remained astonishingly self-composed.
