Welcome to the Hungry Hearts and Thirsty Thursday, weekly meme hosted by Lexxie @ Unconventional book views
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. 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.
Today I chose The Selection by Kiera Cass
I couldn’t avoid her much longer. It was approaching dinnertime, and as the oldest child left in the house, cooking duties fell on me. I pulled myself out of bed and walked into the snake pit. I got a glare from Mom but no words. We did a silent dance through the kitchen and dining room as we prepared chicken, pasta, and apple slices, and set the table for five. If I glanced up from a task, she’d fix me with a fierce look as if she could shame me into wanting the same things she did. She tried that every so often. Like if I didn’t want to take on a particular job because I knew the family hosting us was unnecessarily rude. Or if she wanted me to do a massive cleaning when we couldn’t afford to have a Six come and help.
This is chosen from the book, where America, is refusing to take part in the selection process for choosing a partner for the prince. Her mother is very angry and she could not refuse preparing dinner, so inspite of her mother’s glares, she heads to the kitchen to prepare dinner. I love the food they are planning to have, as there dinner that night. (Guys, I am craving for Chicken and pasta now)
Until next post,
