      NOT MY PROBLEM by Ciara Smyth

  1. These Quizes are my recent favorite on Autostraddle (except for Animalstraddle which makes me smile and Bocce’s tail wag everytime we think about it)……


    These quizes are trully uncanny. One of my favorite genres on TV are light, female oriented, murder mysteries like “Frankie Drake Mysteries”, Miss Fishers Mysteries, Murder is my life etc.”

    Just ordered the paperback. Real bonus of this quiz is the chance to learn about books I never probably would have found on my own!!!

        • Yes, you have a good eye for plants! It’s my 15 year old Christmas cactus, known as The Princess. I also have a 30 year old one known as The Queen. The Queen grew from a cutting from my mom’s houseplant.

          I changed my profile picture to her for AnimalStraddle / April Fools and decided to keep it for awhile.

          • Bocce changed my profile picture to his for animalstraddle day, and now won’t let me change it back. I guess I am stuck with it.

  2. Casey, thanks for this and the book reco it produced (Death before dessert).

    Also, just checked out your webpage and it is a rich source of books I need to catch up on…..


  3. I got Messy Roots: A Graphic Memoir of a Wuhanese American by Laura Gao.

    I remember thinking it sounded interesting when it came out but I didn’t realize that it’s funny, which makes it more interesting to me right now.

    • I am impressed, I should be asking you for book recos…..

      Now I get it….checked your bio….college professor….makes sense….

      Love the description:

      college professor, overthinker, book nerd, baking addict, vintage lover

      I was not a college professor but an academic of sorts, retired researcher (Ph.D. chemistry); overthinker – check; book nerd – my house looks like a library – check; baking addict – love to eat baked goods – count? ; vintage lover – do collect some antiques – check

  4. I read “Irish queer teen girl sarcasm” in the intro and then answered all the questions in the way I thought was most likely to get me that result…it worked!!! Definitely wanna read this one

    • I read cozy mystery in the first question and then tried to answer the questions in such a way as to get that result and it did NOT work! LOL But luckily others shared their responses. Honestly all the options sound great! Thanks for this quiz.

  5. Was picking the glasses and thinking: “this is just your Miss Honey (from Matilda) crush showing up”

    Ending up with Death before desert which has a perfect Miss Honey like cottage on the cover. Guess you really read my mind.

  6. I’m super excited to read Too Much Lip! These quiz recommendations are always excellent – still trying to get over She Drives Me Crazy from the last quiz I’ve done here!
