3 Suggestions: Paperback, Podcast, and Pie

I like my suggestions how I like my alliterations: in threes. Each of these glorious, magical, joy inducing items was recommended by my pals, Laura or Ellie.

BOOK

Three Parts Dead” by Max Gladstone

Suggested reading from Ellie. I just finished Three Parts Dead, an urban fantasy novel by Max Gladstone (who also has a great blog). I was impressed by the characterization of the women in the novel. Tara, the protagonist, is intelligent, brave, loyal, and decisive in action, but not perfect or indestructible. She is a prime example of what I’m mean when I say I like a strong female lead character. Plus, I don’t often see sci-fi or fantasy works featuring people of color so when I saw a brown-skinned woman with dark curly hair on the cover of Three Parts Dead, I was excited. This will not be the last book of Max Gladstone’s that I read!

Synopsis

PODCAST

Acker and Blacker’s The Thrilling Adventure Hour Podcast

Laura got me hooked on this one. If you are a fan of old-time radio, pulp novels, and comedy podcasts, you’ll LOVE the Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast. Also available through the Nerdist website.

FOOD

Dangerously Delicious Pies

Laura, Ellie, and I stopped here on a magical night before going to Kostume Karaoke at Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar (but that is another suggestion for another day). If I may recommend the SMOG pie (Steak, Mushroom, Onion, and Gruyère). The first time I tried it, I took a bite of Laura’s and I had immediate pie envy. Since that moment, I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I recently brought home a whole SMOG pie. Matt and I just finished the last two pieces… and I miss it already.
