This week’s poll is about mealtime–fictional mealtime, that is. Think of some of your favorite books. Did they have great scenes set during a meal? I have a $5 Amazon GC (or Book Depo equivalent) for one participant today. Here are a few of my favorites. Vote for one of these, or suggest one of your own!
* From my own books, I do love the scene where DJ goes with Alex to his parents’ house for his mom’s birthday dinner, or the one where DJ’s pigging out on seafood and gets sick before she realizes she’s channeling Rene, but my favorite meal scene is still where DJ goes with Jean Lafitte back to 1850 New Orleans to eat at Antoine’s. Of course, the evening doesn’t end so well…
* How about in the Anita Blake series, where Anita and Jean Claude go out to dinner at a fancy restaurant? He can taste things she eats through their connection, and orders so much rich food she almost pops out of her dress.
* Well it’s sort of a meal scene….When Adam is badly hurt in wolf form and Mercy piles him in the back of Stefan’s van and takes him to Bran. She buys like two dozen hamburgers and feeds it to him so he won’t decide to eat her instead.
* What else? Weigh in! I’ll compile all the answers from here and from Facebook for Friday’s Lady Scribes column.
