Too much succulence

I just read Suzanne Collins's Gregor the Overlander books 3 and 4 back to back. Writing, characters, stories: all wonderful.

But now I feel as if I've eaten a bowl of shrimp scampi. I've enjoyed every last bite of these succulent delights but I need to wait a little before I eat more. Food this rich and yummy demands re-living. Or maybe I just need to cleanse my palate.

Time to find the equivalent of lime sorbet, followed by some Vietnamese noodle soup, or potatoes
roasted in peanut oil, or pear tarts with a square of dark chocolate in the middle.

Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed those books. I know what you mean. Suzanne Collins is such an amazing author. Truly, I want to be her when I grow up :)

You're making me hungry!

I've got to try a Suzanne Collins book this summer.
