Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts~ Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend

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 Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn. This scene takes place between Gemma and her family in their kitchen. {pg. 139}

Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend (Broken Hearts & Revenge, #1)

“Oh?” Bruce asked, brushing cupcake crumbs off his hands. “What did you do? Like, typical teen things? And what, exactly were they?”

“What is this?” my dad asked, looking around the kitchen. “Did you bake these?”
“I did.” I said. “These were cupcakes for a friend, until Bruce–” Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Rosie’s hand dart out and grab a cupcake from the other side of the sentence. “Rosie!” I cried, hovering protectively over the remaining ones. Honestly I had expected more from her.
“Sorry, Gem,” Rosie said, taking a bite out of what I now saw was the E at the end of “Hallie.” “But you can’t just leave cupcakes out and not expect us to eat them. Your dad understands.”
I whipped around to see my dad with a cupcake halfway to his mouth.

This week I am featuring Wanderlost by Jen Malone. Aubree is at breakfast the first day of the tour in this scene, completely overwhelmed. {pg. 75-76}

Wanderlost

It tuns out pancakes are kind of a “thing” in the Netherlands, at least according to our server. She hands me a menu with topping combinations I guarantee IHOP has never even heard of. Um, shawarma pancakes? Pepperoni pancakes? Rabbit-and-deer-topped pancakes?! Swear to God. They’re on my menu.
“Could I please have butter and maple syrup pancakes?” I ask the waitress. She looks disappointed.

This week I am featuring Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella. In this scene Lexi is still at the hospital, having just woken with no memory, talking to her mother. {pg. 49}

Remember Me?

“Amy’s here?” My spirits lift as I visualize my little sister in her pink fleecy vest and flower-embroidered jeans and those cute sneakers that light up when she dances.
“She was just buying some chocolate downstairs.” Mum opens the door. “She loves those mint Kit Kats.”
The door closes behind her and I stare at it. They’ve invented mint Kit Kats?
2007 really is a different world.

This week I am featuring Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine. In this scene, Santi, Wolfe and Jess at Wolfe’s. {pg. 324}

Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1)

Santi lost. He shook his head, stood up, and went to the small kitchen.
“You heard?” Jess asked.
“I can guess most of what he told you.” Wolfe’s gaze was fixed on Santi’s back as he went about the domestic business. “I gambled for the soul of the Library. And I lost. Past is past. Now, tell me why you’ve come.”
“Chris, for the love of Amon, don’t do this,” Santi said. “Class is over. Walk away.”
“If you’re making coffee, I’d like milk,” Wolfe said.
“I know that. Jess?”
“Uh– black, sir.” He’d grown up on his father’s brew, so bitter and dark that it was like drinking midnight. “Thank you.” It was absurd thanking him, but it just came out, somehow. Jess felt entirely off-balance between Santi’s sudden hospitality and knowledge of Wolfe that he was totally unprepared to handle.

This week I am featuring Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth. This scene features Akos and Cisi. {pg. 464}

Carve the Mark (Carve the Mark #1)

Cisi offered him a mug of tea, yellow green. The blend for fortitude, judging by its shade. He wasn’t any good  at mixing that one, since he’d spent most of his time working with hushflower, to put people to sleep and kill their pain. It didn’t taste like much– bitter like a new stem, freshly snapped– but it make him steadier like it was supposed to.

This week I am featuring The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman. In this scene, Kai and Irene are eating lunch when Vale joins them. {pg. 78}

The Invisible Library (The Invisible Library, #1)

The waiter cleared away the soup course and brought the main meal for Irene and Kai. He also brought a spare glass for the visitor, filling it unbidden, before retreating again. The intrusion allowed Irene to bite her lip and refrain from kicking Kai under the table, as she’d just managed to work out where he was getting his pseudonyms from. Strongrock– Rochefort. Winters– De Winter. She would have to explain to him why it was a bad idea to pull pseudonyms from literary sources.

This week I am featuring My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman. In this scene, Elsa meets up with the wurse. {pg. 113}

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry

“I looked for you this morning,” she says, and goes into the street, even though this is not allowed during breaks. “Were you nice to the ghosts?”
The wurse doesn’t look as if it was, but she throws her arms around its neck all the same, buries her hands deep in its thick black fur, and exclaims: “Wait, I’ve got something for you!” The wurse greedily stocks its nose into her backpack, but looks remarkably disappointed when it pulls back out again.
“They’re protein bars,” says Elsa apologetically. “We don’t have any sweets at home because Mum doesn’t want me to eat them, but George says these are mega-tasty!”
The wurse doesn’t like them at all. It only has about nine of them. When the bell goes, Elsa hugs it hard, hard, hard one more time and whispers “Thanks for coming!”

This week I am featuring The Selection by Kiera Cass. This scene takes place between America and Aspen in her tree house, after she’s entered the Selection. {pg. 49}

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

“Money, of course. Look, I made you a feast!” I pulled away from him and started grabbing plates. I’d made too much dinner on purpose to save him some, and I’d been baking pastries for days. May and I both had a terrible addiction to sweets anyway, and she was jubilant that this was how I was choosing to spend my money.
“What’s all this?”
“Food. I made it myself.” I was beaming with pride for my efforts. Finally, tonight, Aspen could be full. But his smile faded as he took in plate after plate.
“Aspen, is something wrong?”
“This isn’t right.” He shook his head and looked away from the treats.

This week I am featuring Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. The following scene is part of an email exchange between Jacques (Simon) and Blue. {pg. 78}

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

All right– I have a sneaking suspicion that you’re not 100% committed to your Oreo diet. The guidelines are really pretty basic. No excuses. Breakfast is obviously an Oreo granola bar or Oreo Pop-Tart. No, they’re not gross. Shut up. They’re amazing. Lunch should be Oreo pizza with an Oreo milk shake and a couple of those Oreo truffles my mom makes (a.k.a. the most delicious freaking things in the universe). Dinner is deep-fried Oreos served on top of Oreo ice cream, and for a drink it’s Oreos dissolved in milk. No water. Only Oreo milk. Dessert can be Oreos straight up. Sound reasonable? It’s for your health, Blue.

This week I am featuring Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. This scene takes place in the school cafeteria between Anna and the cook. {pg 54-55}

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

“Ah! Soupe,” he gently corrects.
“Si, soupe. I mean, oui. Oui!” My cheeks burn. “And, um, the uh– chicken-salad-green-bean thingy?”
Monsieur Boutin laughs. It’s a jolly, bowl-full-of-jelly, Santa Claus laugh. “Chicken and haricots verts, oui. You know, you may speak Ingleesh to me. I understand eet vairy well.”
My blush deepens. Of course he’d speak English in an American school. And I’ve been living on stupid pears and baguettes for five days. He hands me a bowl of soup and a small plate of chicken salad, and my stomach rumbles at the sight of hot food.
