cariashley Wow I don‘t think I realized how big Imaginary Friend was until this picture! 😯 (edited) 3w
Butterflyamore @cariashley Yes, just slightly over 700 pages! It‘s a monster! 3w
EadieB @Butterflyamore I haven't read any of the books you read in December. I would be interested in This Tender Land which I have on hold at Library, All That's Bright and Gone, The Woman in the Mirror and The Apple Tree.
I read 20 books in December. My favorites were You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen (fav book - 2019), The Tenant by Katrine Engborg was very good too. The Unwilling by John Hart ARC but I think you would like it.
Butterflyamore @EadieB I really need to make reading something by John Hart a priority this year. I have three of his books and I hear such great things about his writing. 3w
EadieB @Butterflyamore That was my first book by him and I was very impressed by his writing. 3w
SilversReviews @Butterflyamore It was. Love his books. 2w

It‘s a little later than usual but I finally got my November wrap up video up! I‘m excited to talk with you about the books I finished last month: https://youtu.be/1tCHRTxp5FU

EadieB @Butterflyamore Sad to hear you didn‘t like The Other Woman as I have the ARC too however, I have read her Paula Maguire series and found the books very well written. I am interested in reading Darling Rose Gold, The Cheerleaders and Trace of Evil from your reviews. I‘ve read 13 from November but did not read any NF. My favorite reads are Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy, The Third Twin and Night Over Water by Ken Follett - all 5 stars from me. 2mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica is a psychological thriller that I know you will love! It was hard to put down, suspects galore, edge of your seat surprise ending. So check that one out! Really good! I have to listen to your movie YouTube as I was traveling home from Mexico when I got it the other day. Your tag today has reminded me to do that so I‘ll be back to you after I finish it. 2mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB I have been hearing lots of great things about The Other Mrs. I definitely want to read it! I‘ll probably wait until it comes out, as I‘m a little overwhelmed with ARCs right now and want to be able to read some of my other books, too. I did see one review state that they couldn‘t believe that the same mind that wrote the Paula Maguire series wrote The Other Wife. Maybe I‘ll reconsider my stance on not reading another one of her books. 2mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I would definitely check out her Paula Maguire books! 2mo

Well Read, Then Dead | Terrie Farley Moran
post image

Just caught up on the #PBS show #WellRead while #audistitching. Now having dinner of Caprese pizza (how it differs from a Margherita is still unclear), then not stitching. Have yet to decide which book, though I should probably finish Pumpkin Flowers #LitsyPartyofOne

readinginthedark Is that basil on top or pesto? 3y
drokka @readinginthedark I believe it's basil pesto. Is that the difference then, fresh basil = margherita, pesto = Caprese? 3y
Robothugs I'll just be stealing a slice of that... 3y

readinginthedark @drokka I've never had Caprese pizza, but that would be my guess. I can't find a difference anywhere else. Oh, and Margherita has fresh sliced tomatoes on top. So, maybe that's a difference as well? (edited) 3y
drokka @readinginthedark Great catch! I didn't even catch that there aren't tomatoes on this one. The sauce makes up for it though, very yummy. 3y
readinginthedark @drokka Well, it looks delicious! 3y
Inspiretoreadwrite A margherita can be with or without fresh mozzarella. And it has fresh tomatoes(diced or as a sauce) with fresh basil(most times). Caprese pizza don't exist in Italy. It's either a caprese or margherita pizza. Caprese doesn't have pesto. Caprese is fresh sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil with olive oil, some put it some don't but usually has it. So anything else was just inspired but re-created, not the original classic recipes. 4mo
