Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts is a weekly feature/meme over at (un)Conventional Book Views, where we post a little something about food or drinks or meals that were mentioned in the book that we’re reading or have read. I haven’t done this in a while but here goes nothing 🙂
This week, I just finished reading The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen, where I found this passage about some sweets I didn’t know about but I had fun Googling about it and it makes me crave for something sweet. Ahh imagine having a whole closet full of sweets and snacks. However, in the book, the closet signifies how the main character, Josey Cirrini, hides a lot of things from her own mother and that is just a sad way to live your life. Anyway, I love the book as I have loved all Sarah Addison Allen’s books that I’ve read. I’ll probably write a review for it next week, so please do look out for it if you’re interested 🙂
The secret closet was the closet in the adjoining room. That bedroom had a huge armoire in it, a ridiculously heavy old Cirrini heirloom. It took up most of one wall and hid that closet. She’d found the door between the two closets by accident, when she would sit in her closet and eat candy she hid in her pockets when she was young. Back then she used to hide from her mother in the secret space just to worry her, but now she stocked it with magazines, paperback romances and sweets. Lots and lots of sweets. Moonpies and pecan rolls, Chick-O-Sticks and Cow Tales, Caramel Creams and Squirrel Nut Zippers, Red Hots and Bit-O-Honey, boxes upon boxes of Little Debbie snack cakes. The space had a comforting smell to it, like Halloween, like sugar and chocolate and crisp plastic wrappers.
Have you had any of these sweets?
