The Book of Lost Things . Kinda creepy, but really good. Lost fairy tales are living out an alternate world under the big knarly tree in the back yard of WWII-era David's home. The characters start to call to him and trap him in that world.
It sounds like a chidren's story, but it is definitely NOT. It is about the loss of childhood in the face of serious and complex family dynamics. A very strange coming-of-age story.

Thanks for the wishes. No I have not read Connelly before. The 9 Dragons sounds good as do the other great suggestions that everyone has posted. I must really get busy finishing my next manuscript so I can relax and enjoy some of these choices!
Sun is out in my part of the world and it promises to be a great day. I hope everyone else has one too!

It can get confusing, because there are two authors with similar names but very different writing styles:
John Connolly, who is known for his eerie Charlie Parker mysteries, which have supernatural/paranormal elements
Michael Connelly, who has a long-running series about the fabulous Harry Bosch

150! That is an admirable goal! (hehe) I'm wondering if I can take my list with me to the next life so I don't have to start over from scratch!

Whew, yesterday was a nerve-wracking day. As I'm sure you noticed, the sign in process somehow froze up and locked everyone out, moderators included.
Hopefully, the problem has been fixed. I'm happy to be back, and I hope you are, too!

Hi everyone! My name is Tawnya and I am a mystery lover! Most of my books are mysteries or cookbooks. Some of my favorite mysteries are ones that combine cooking and mysteries such as the books my Joanne Fluke. I am really into the Domestic Bliss mysteries by Leslie Caine right now too. I am just so ecstatic to be able to finally post on this board!
