Page 219! Key lime pie mention. In the story *Songs of Your Decay* 🥧#CaresPieShow

Any campers notice? It‘s just me, isn‘t it. 😂 #CampLitsy

HOT today in Kansas. Planted a round-the-umbrella-pot today…

BkClubCare Anyone… ? …. On my page 245 after Aubrey‘s letter to Laird, the word REMAIN is bold. I wonder why. Why am I noticing?! 2w
BkClubCare Oh. Gut punch. The Laird chapter has gutted me. 2w
BkClubCare LOL 😂 2w
BkClubCare Page 268, the painter, wife of Cliff, is friends with Val and Dennis?! 🧐 2w

Wishing all my Litsy friends a very Happy Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day June 9th!

#CaresPieShow #StrawberryRhubarbPie

BookwormM Ohhh looks yummy do you have a recipe 3w
BkClubCare @BookwormM - get thee to a cookbook store and seek Beth M Howard‘s “Ms American Pie”, page 83. (2 pints strawberries 3 cups chopped rhubarb, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 tapioca— 425 degrees for 15 min then reduce to 375 degrees for 20-30 more) 3w
Gissy Mmmm 😋 3w
Megabooks I keep meaning to make strawberry rhubarb jam. Those look great! (edited) 3w

“The flesh of this particular pear 🍐 is soft and sweet and infused with a certain spiciness that lends itself to jams and pies.” #pieinliterature #LitPie #iLovePie #CaresPieShow

I am NOT enjoying the Anna parts - the going-backwards-in-time ain‘t working for me. But I am already heartbroken for the Anastasia storyline. I am about 75% in.

Hoping to finish tonight so I can devour True Biz tomorrow.

BkClubCare Also big SHOUT OUT to my friend @Nutmegnc for all the tips & tricks on image-creation. 😍 3w
AvidReader25 I tend to struggle with books that switch back and forth in time because one plot line is usually better than the other! I just started it. 😊 3w
BkClubCare @AvidReader25 - I saw you read and didn‘t like The Kitchen Boy. You probably know more than I do abt the Romanovs? 3w

Hooked_on_books I didn‘t love the backward telling of this, either, but at the end it made sense. For me, this is her weakest book. Her best, by far, is one I strongly recommend if you haven‘t read it: 3w
BkClubCare @Hooked_on_books - thanks! The Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress looks good, too - especially because I know absolutely nothing abt it. (edited) 3w
Nutmegnc 😍🥰 3w
AvidReader25 @BkClubCare That one fell short for me, but I‘ve been thinking about it while reading this one. I don‘t love the Anna parts so far. The timeline is hard to follow! 3w
BkClubCare If you can, and don‘t think it will spoil the experience, read the author‘s note 📝 3w
BkClubCare @AvidReader25 - -If you can, and don‘t think it will spoil the experience, read the author‘s note 📝 3w
AvidReader25 @BkClubCare I‘ll check out! I wish Anna‘s sections didn‘t bounce around so much. 3w

I loved this. I can‘t describe what exactly but hanging out with Selin is always an adventure; an intellectual discussion about humanity. Loved the ending - so hopeful!

Aw, last week of month: figure out books to be read for a #BookSpinBingo, which to get on next month‘s card, check status on current challenges & pick new challenges! I‘m overwhelmed but enthusiastically keep piling on. This time it is for #20BooksofSummer (onhand unread bookstack upper left). Also want to post anything on Litsy for a dopamine-invite and show off my latest pie #AppleCherryPie #CaresPieShow. Ok, that is all. Carry on 📖 📚 🥧

RaeLovesToRead Mmmmm pie 🥰 1mo
keys_on_fire Those pies look delish!! I love pies, but as a singleton, I end up eating the whole thing myself (which I don‘t need!) so I don‘t often have it. Wish there were more pie shops around…Good luck with your reading goals!! 1mo
Nutmegnc Yeah pie! Glad you finally made one!! 1mo
BkClubCare @Nutmegnc - I know, right?! It felt good. And, I didn‘t give any to neighbors 😂 1mo

“ A number of these were stalking the grounds of Cassowary House, eating cut-up bananas and gobbling up any pies unwisely left on windowsills to cool.”

I think I read one too many reviews of this excellently-told, creatively-expressed, fascinatingly-built story within a story within another. I enjoyed it - but give yourself the time. And though this has horror described, I wouldn‘t call it “Horror” — it is more like fictional true crime. #readict

Photo upleft is a “devil house” of Tauy Creek KS and the other is a close up of #CoconutCreamPie for May8. #CaresPieShow

EvieBee Mmm. Question: does this in any way involve supernatural elements? That‘s the part of “horror” and are just a no-no for me. But the true crime aspect interests me. 2mo
BkClubCare @EvieBee - nope, nothing supernatural other than investigating rumors of such. It is about a true crime writer trying to find the real truth through the rumor. (edited) 2mo
EvieBee Awesome! I‘ll need to get on this asap. Thanks for the recommendation! 💙 2mo
BkClubCare @EvieBee - great! Let me know your thoughts. It has some high praise and some NOT. I think no expectations is best (but that is SO hard!) 2mo

“Resist change at your own peril. When something ends, let it end.” LOVING this book, so many wonderful characters.

Cathythoughts Love the look of this pie 😍 2mo
xicanti This is my very favourite pie. 2mo

A few irritants in dialogue, word choice, and the occasional, “what?!?!” to the thoughts of the MC, but liked it enough, unusual enough that I am going to throw it a Pick. Plus it had pie! #CaresPieShow #LimeMeringue #eBook #ThetaFB #ThetaAuthor #Thriller #StepChild 38th Book of the year

sarahbarnes One of my favorite kinds of pie! 2mo
BkClubCare @sarahbarnes - really? Lime Meringue or ... LEMON meringue or key lime pie? It is too hard to get a good green color on this Lime filling I attempted. It was tasty, tho. 2mo
sarahbarnes 😂 Fair question - actually lemon meringue and key lime are my two favorites so this pie sounds perfect! 2mo
