Want Books

Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now.

Goodreads summary: From the award-winning author of SO B. IT, a story about family, friendship, and...pie!

When Alice's Aunt Polly passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous pie-crust recipe. Or does she? In her will, Polly leaves the recipe to her extraordinarily surly cat Lardo . . . and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.

Suddenly Alice is thrust into the center of a piestorm, with everyone in town trying to be the next pie-contest winner ... including Alice's mother and some of Alice's friends. The whole community is going pie-crazy . . . and it's up to Alice to discover the ingredients that really matter. Like family. And friendship. And enjoying what you do.

So why should I want Pie, you may (or may not) ask? I'll tell ya anyway. Pie looks like a delicious read and I am a huge fan of pie and books with cats involved. Especially when a cat inherits a recipe and is in charge of the protagonist? Hilarious.

Plus, in a small way, this book reminds me of one of my favorite television shows that ended before its time: Pushing Daisies.

I LOVE that show so much, and Kristen Chenoweth is gorgeous and so talented. Plus, I adore Lee Pace (who played the main character Ned) and it helps he was in my other favorite television show, Wonderfalls.

*sigh* Why do all of my favorite television shows get cancelled after a few short seasons? Oh well.

What's on your Want Books list?
