Read-a-long with the author: Cupcakes (Etc) – Chapter Four
Okay! My thoughts on chapter three of Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic. I tweeted my fav quotes as I came upon them, but I’ll share a digest below as well.
WARNING: I assume there may be spoilers in the comments – because this is hopefully going to be a discussion – but I’ll try to keep my main post pretty spoiler free. Though, as the chapters progress, I’m sure that will change.
HUDSON … HUDSON … HUDSON!
OMG, Hudson. Sigh.
But first Jade:
… I batted at the phone with my foot, but the screen didn’t recognize my toes’ right to shut off the alarm.
And Kandy 🙂
“Yes. Your magic is tasty.” This time the wolf did show her teeth when she smiled. I thought that might indicate the conversation was moving in the wrong direction … the woman-eating direction, and not the good kind.
Out of the corner of my eye, as I hung my head upside down, I watched him spread his long fingers palm down on the mat by his feet. He reached easily ten inches across — with each hand — and I desperately tried to block the image of those hands across twenty inches of my body.
“Ah, but you’re the one who already wouldn’t agree to firsts without lasts,” he said. Ever so lightly, he touched the small of my back to direct me up the street toward Whole Foods. “And by lasts, you meant forever, didn’t you? Wolves, you will find, understand all about forevers.”
“Kandy will watch over you while I’m gone. I’d like to take you to dinner.”
“You’re guarding me?”
“Kandy is guarding you. I’m attempting to date you.”
No wonder Jade swooned for him so hard!
What are your thoughts on the fourth chapter?
