“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. 😍 4w
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. 😊 4w
BkClubCare @AvidReader25 - I saw you read and didn‘t like The Kitchen Boy. You probably know more than I do abt the Romanovs? 4w

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: 4w
BkClubCare @Hooked_on_books - thanks! The Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress looks good, too - especially because I know absolutely nothing abt it. (edited) 4w
Nutmegnc 😍🥰 4w
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! 4w
BkClubCare If you can, and don‘t think it will spoil the experience, read the author‘s note 📝 4w

AvidReader25 @BkClubCare I‘ll check out! I wish Anna‘s sections didn‘t bounce around so much. 3w

The word play! I am astounded that this is a translated work (and thrilled that I know the bookstore that is owned by translator Emma Ramadan.) I would love to hear more about the entire project to create this. #tob2022
#PieinLiterature #PieLit “easy as pie”

Sophronisba I am really curious about this one. Definitely plan to get to it before #tob2022. 6mo

Blueberry 🫐 🥧 Pie! Sliced into 3 pieces and piled with ice cream. Oh yea! (Being audio, I don‘t have the *exact* words) #PieinLiterature #LitPie
I think this is an Audible freebie and yes, it didn‘t hurt that Ann Patchett blurbed it… yes, I might have a crush on AP… #WiaN2022 category Seasons

Again, I look to my goodreads booklists for inspiration. #Haunted #Scarathlon #PhotoChallenge
Another favorite author 🏚👻 I read Hill House last year; saw the movie forever ago. There is a pie quote in the book: Eleanor says, “I like apple pie with sour cream.” #PieinLiterature #LitPie #iLovePie 🥧

Linsy I didn't know there were stories from The Haunted Mansion! I might need to try. 9mo
BkClubCare @Linsy - This is why we “Litsy” — to find books we need to read 🤣 9mo

#bookclub Enjoyed this one to my great relief. I haven‘t been having the best of times with my club's choices so far. A couple of maybe minor quibbles: I didn‘t understand the use of “Ya” in the dialogue, and was not impressed with the flippant mention of a child murder case that, to me, is very sad and shouldn‘t be a joke. Also, I hate wearing yoga pants! 1/2 ⬇️

BkClubCare OTOH, I am impressed and inspired with a lady in her mid-fifties achieving the goal of being a spin trainer. And it had pie! #LitPie #PieinLiterature #CaresBooksandPie #iLovePie 2/2 9mo
Ruthiella What did “Ya” mean? Yes or Yeah? 9mo
BkClubCare I read it as YEAH or YEA ; “ya” doesn‘t really work for me in that pronunciation. And since this book is set in Kansas, it really didn‘t work. 🤣 9mo
BkClubCare My 95th book of the year. 9mo

If the TOB had been around in 1980 (81?), this would have been selected. What a weird odd story!! Not what I expected; cannot wait to watch the movie 🎥
I can‘t give it 5 slices of pie because it just confounded me at the last page but now, as I think about it, (and I realize she hd some very worthy pie mentions, ahem), I just may bump it up to a FIVE. Definitely a PICK 👏 But what WAS this? Mental health in families? Living on your own terms?!

annahenke This is a beautiful pic! What an adorable pup! 11mo

Look at Me | Anita Brookner

I have read 7 novels by Elizabeth Taylor, 3 by Anita Brookner, & 1 by Barbara Pym, & I love Brookner‘s style the most.

I shifted my rating for the tagged book to 5⭐️ because I just can‘t stop thinking about it. I pick up the book now and then to reread some parts because it‘s just brilliant! Yes, I‘m nursing book hangover now 😅 It‘s truly the gold standard for spinster lit!

Thank God she wrote a lot. I have 21 more titles to explore 🎉

LeahBergen I‘ve only read a couple but I‘ve been grabbing Brookner novels whenever I see them for a couple of dollars at charity shops. 😆 12mo
sisilia @LeahBergen You have the loveliest editions 😍 Mine are the new Penguins. Hopefully I can collect all 24 titles 12mo
Freespirit I don‘t know her books but I will look out for them now!! 12mo

LeahBergen I have a few of the Penguin editions and love them! The covers suit her writing/settings much better than some of the original editions. 😬 12mo
quietjenn I really need to give her a go. I know I own a handful, in one form it another, but haven't read any of them yet. 12mo
Cathythoughts She‘s brilliant.. I‘ve read a few & remember The Late Comers being a favorite… must read more of her 12mo
sisilia @Freespirit @quietjenn Definitely an author to look forward to 12mo
sisilia @Cathythoughts I have Latecomers 😃 I‘m reading in the order of the dates of publication, so next is Hotel du Lac 12mo
Gissy Where to start with all these great authors?😱I love to watch Miranda Mills in YouTube because she is always recommending great classic books and she have beautiful vintage covers. She lives in Yorkshire and love to see her videos from the area. 12mo
sisilia @Gissy The list is never-ending 😅 At this moment, I have Zola/Taylor/Brookner/Pym as my “projects”, and soon will be adding Wallace Stegner to the list. The problem with me is that if I like an author‘s style, I aim to read all of his/her works 😆 I need to be immortal, I guess 🤣 12mo
DivineDiana Immortal! That‘s what I‘m going for too! I usually use vampire for the same reason, but from now on, immortal, it is! 🤣 12mo
sisilia @DivineDiana 🤣 Bookish problem! 12mo
BkClubCare @sisilia - had to check if I had read any Brookner 😱 but I haven‘t YET. A few of her books are on my tbr. Will add her to my 2021 tbr. And, I adored Stegner‘s 12mo
sisilia @BkClubCare I‘m going to read Angle of Repose next month, and Crossing to Safety is in my TBR. Heard lots of good thing about it (edited) 12mo
BkClubCare @sisilia - I can‘t recall why I first read Crossing - I think l bought it at a library sale? And I went on to read soon after. 12mo
BkClubCare @sisilia (gave Crossing to Safety a #PieinLiterature award. 🤣) 12mo
sisilia @BkClubCare 😻 I‘m so looking forward to Stegner 12mo

“For dessert there was a choice of rice pudding or rhubarb pie.” The book I just finished, The Cold Millions, had a reference to rhubarb pie. 💗🥧 #iLovePie #pielit #LitPie #PieinLiterature #CaresBooksandPie

I do love these quotes via the kindle app. #shrug
