I have a lot of favorites in this genre, but here are three:

1. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (Fun story: Andrew and I met his father-in-law at a beer festival in Philadelphia)
2. The Martian by Andy Wier
3. Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Can I cheat? I also want to mention:
4. The House with a Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs
5. Percy Jackson & The Olympians series

@dabbe #ThreeListThursday #HerosQuest #HeroQuest

dabbe 3 more for the TBR! And you have to start telling some of these stories; you're too good at being intriguing! 🤩 Thanks for sharing. 💚💙💚 3d
lil1inblue Ready Player One is soooooo good! I even got my hubs to do the audiobook of this and he loved it. (He's a graphic novel guy.) 3d
Aimeesue I loved John Bellairs when I was a kid, filling out those Scholastic book order forms 😁 3d

1. Hot spiced cider--a family tradition every year from Halloween to the New Year's.
2. Baking bread--my mom often made homemade bread, something I still enjoy doing as an adult.
3. The smell of rain after a long dry spell. I grew up in the PNW and love the smell of rain. @Eggs #WondrousWednesday

Fool: A Novel | Christopher Moore

1. Yes, in high school and I immediately regretted it and felt horrible. He didn't want to be my friend after that, but we talked it out eventually.

1. Sherlock Holmes (I especially enjoyed the tagged book)
2. Walter Hartright (in “The Woman in White“)

That's all I've got because I'm not much into detective fiction.

I think Andrew would be more objective in answering these for me--and I'm curious to hear what he has to say--but I'll try my best to answer the prompt to the best of my ability. 😁

1. I relate to situations and things people say by responding in movie/TV quotes.
2. I laugh a lot. In fact, I laugh even when I'm in pain.
3. I often physically act out dreams while asleep.

1. I wish I didn't have to work, largely because my health is poor. But I also just want to move abroad--Sweden, Norway, Finland, or Iceland, and live a quiet, easy, hygge life.
2. I remember really enjoying Egg & Spoon by Gregory Maguire. I love the idea of having an ambulatory house on chicken legs (Baba Yaga), where I can travel to all the lands I dream of, w/o having to leave my home behind. I can take it with me wherever I go! #TwoforTuesday

2. Still reading “Bookshops & Bonedust“ by Travis Baldree and “A Sky of Infinite Blue“ by Kyomi O'Connor
3. Since starting to keep track of my reading in 2014, the longest book I've read is “Tomie“ by Junji Ito (750 p). But as for a traditional novel, it would be “The Woman in White“ by Wilkie Collins (672 p).

The Spirit Bares Its Teeth | Andrew Joseph White
post image
Pickpick

I couldn't put this one down!

The Spirit Bares Its Teeth boldly explores a historical setting with an autistic, transgender protagonist, unflinchingly shedding light on the oppressive nature of the patriarchy and the plight of trans youth coerced into conformity, while highlighting the violence they endure.

The book opens with a letter from the author (see photo).
