25.3 - Kaora's Task: Good Things Come In Threes

This is my third time completing this challenge and I am the third person to complete in order to create a 25 point task! So In honor of the number 3 read two books, one from each of two different options, or one book of at least 500 pages that matches two of the following:

Option A: Read a book that has all the letters of THREE in the title (NOT SUBTITLE). The letters do not need to be in order. Letters can be used only as often as they appear in the title.
Examples: House of Earth and Blood, The Art of Theft, The Girl Who Fell to Earth

Option B: Read a book that was first published in a year that contains a 3, i.e. 1930, 1993, 2003, 2013.

Option C: Read a book that is part of a trilogy or a 3 book series.
If the series is not yet complete "trilogy" should be mentioned in the Goodreads description, the series information following the title/subtitle, or the book's series page should indicate 3 primary works. For the purposes of the task half numbers will not be included.
Examples: Wicked Saints - Something Dark and Holy series page shows 3 primary works and describes this as a trilogy, although only 2 books have been published so far.
Assassin's Apprentice - (The Farseer Trilogy #1)

Katie (goodreader_ktkizzie) | 38 comments Would Inkheart work as one book for the task?

First published Sept 23, 2003.
Book #1 in the Inkworld trilogy.
583 pages long.

KSMary | 792 comments Just to make sure that this is enough information - The Gilded Wolves would work for Opt C even though the next two books have not been published yet.

Sorry I don't see where it says it is a trilogy. While it seems to have 3 works planned (for now) since it's unfinished I can't tell if that is actually the case.

Yes trilogy in series name. Enjoy

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 3645 comments Please confirm for Option c: part of a trilogy
A Discovery of Witches

Thank you in advance.

NOTE: when I go to the series page for this trilogy, there is a fourth book listed. But when I click on that book and to to that book's main page it states it is book # 1 in a different spin-off series.

Just want to be sure this book will still work as part of a trilogy.

Approved. Series says trilogy so works for me if you use the first 3 books. That fourth spinoff would not be eligible.

Kevin (naughtonkp) Does The Pillars of the Earth work for a book in a three book series?

There's apparently a prequel coming out later this year that is listed as Book #0 on the series page. https://www.goodreads.com/series/6016...

Thanks in advance. I just found out about the prequel when I went to post (I've had this in my head as a trilogy I wanted to read for awhile now, so was pretty surprised to see the prequel pop up), so fully understand if it doesn't work.


message 15: by Kaora (new)

Kaora (ophelja) | 1123 comments I'll allow it. Since the same thing happened with the Mockingjay series, which is a trilogy but had a book #0.

Kevin (naughtonkp) I appreciate the quick response! Thanks again.
