What I am currently reading:

The Accidental Don by Guy J. Tirondola

Locals in a small southern coastal village come to fear Don De Luca, the stranger who has settled among them, whom they wrongly surmise to be a mafia don. Don, a bar owner from Newark, on the run, falsely accused of stealing money from the mob, uses his new-found evil identity as a force for good, combating hatred, bigotry, superstition, and finally confronting the mob boss who has arrived to kill him. 
Don’s journey reveals that some men are born wicked, some men achieve wickedness, and some men have wickedness thrust upon them.

What I recently finished:

The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

Welcome to a surreal version of Great Britain, circa 1985, where time travel is routine, cloning is a reality (dodos are the resurrected pet of choice), and literature is taken very, very seriously. England is a virtual police state where an aunt can get lost (literally) in a Wordsworth poem, militant Baconians heckle performances of Hamlet, and forging Byronic verse is a punishable offense. All this is business as usual for Thursday Next, renowned Special Operative in literary detection, until someone begins kidnapping characters from works of literature. When Jane Eyre is plucked from the pages of Brontë's novel, Thursday must track down the villain and enter the novel herself to avert a heinous act of literary homicide.

Here's my review.

What I'm reading next:

Lizzy Speare and the Cursed Tomb (Lizzy Speare #1) by Ally Malinenko


…a normal twelve year old girl with a talent for writing, who has a very not normal family secret. And when Lizzy’s father vanishes, that secret will change her life in ways unimagined. (Spoiler Alert! It turns out that Lizzy, or Elizabeth S. Speare, is the last living descendant of William Shakespeare. Shhh! Don’t tell anybody!


  1. I liked your review of The Eyre Affair. I'm going to have to check that one out.

  2. I like the plot for Accidental Don, sounds like s fun read. :)

    New follower too. Here is what I'm reading this week! Have a great one!

  3. I read The Eyre Affair a few years ago and enjoyed it--it's wild! Off to read your review. :)

  4. They all sound interesting, but the Accidental Don sounds a bit scary. And dark!

  5. I really enjoyed the Eyre Affair. I read it right after I'd finished Jane Eyre for the first time and loved how Eyre Affair seemed to explain some events that happened in Jane Eyre. =)

    My WWW Wednesday can be found here.

  6. I loved the Eyre Affair and the subsequent books. As for the world-building, it didn't bother me. I tossed myself into the world and loved it. I'm sure I overlooked some flaws, but I was so into it, I didn't mind!


I love any and all comments! It keeps me honest!
