This Week's Review - Kristin Cashore - Bitterblue
The novel, which has an announced first printing of 200,000 copies and clocks in at a hefty 576 pages, picks up eight years after Graceling,with Bitterblue now 18 and the reigning queen of Monsea.

Pie Poem

Some pies taste sweet  
Some taste tart
Some you cut 
Some fall apart

Some are salty 
Some are sour
Some have the taste of 
real pucker power

One thing for sure 
I hope you will concur
From the first bite, you will 
agree I am right

That fruit, no doubt is 
the best part
