Musing Monday – Except It’s Wednesday… Oops!

So Musing Monday wasn’t actually posted on Monday on the source blog, so I didn’t intend to do it this week, but I happened to be over there and saw that it had been added and would give me the chance to talk about two different things I wanted to blog about. So here is Musing Monday/Wednesday:

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme, hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker, that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Has a book ever made you crave a specific type of food?


I wish I could read Jane Austen’s Persuasion, but… I have literally never been able to get past the first few chapters before I was ready to bash my head against a wall!
However, I think I’ve come up with a solution, which is lucky because I’ve got reading Persuasion as one of my 2017 goals.
Starting this week, I’m going to read one chapter a week of Persuasion. When I’m in the last four chapters I’ll read two a week. By the end of the year I’ll have finally finished Persuasion after years of trying!

Has a book ever made you crave a specific type of food?
YES! THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT THIS!
So if you’ve ever read a fantasy novel, you will know what I’m talking about when I mention their food. This does apply to everything they eat, but especially to the food the characters eat while traveling.
There’s just something about the way authors describe the bread and the salted meats and the fresh game and THE FUCKING HUNKS OF CHEESE! Nothing like a good ol’ fantasy novel to get me wishing I was gnawing on a hunk of cheese like a rat!
My favorite fantasy novels that include things like this are the Tales of the Kingdom books by Cynthia Voigt.
