Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant is a delightful read. Delilah Dirk is a globe-trotting, sword-swinging adventure woman. The Turkish Lieutenant of the title is Selim, a tea-loving man who gets caught up in her wake and becomes her traveling companion. After adventuring and fleeing from an angry pirate, they come across a little village and Selim decides to stay because an adventuring life isn't for him. But in the end he finds that maybe a quiet little life isn't what he actually wants.
I loved how Dirk is ridiculously confident while Selim is her exact opposite, which makes for a very fun romp. I quite enjoyed Tony Cliff's first graphic novel and am looking forward to the second. :)
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
