Book Review: The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone

Video game mystery book! The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Mossy by Max Wirestone

3.5 stars of 5

The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone

The title immediately caught my attention and I absolutely love the cover.

Geeky, videogame player, Dahlia is down on her luck. Jobless and boyfriendless, Dahlia doesn’t seem to be able to get her shit together. Until one night, she has a strange proposition. This guy in a sailor costume asks her to solve a crime for him. Someone has stolen his spear and wants Dahlia to find it. Even though Dahlia is no private investigator, she might be more qualified for the job than you think. See, the spear is a virtual spear. The spear was stolen in a VIDEO GAME. Even though Dahlia is suspicious of this job she still goes ahead and takes it, inadvertently becoming entangled in a real crime.

The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone

This book was quirky, funny and charming. The characters are over the top ridiculous and hilarious. For those of you looking for a geeky, video game mystery, this book is a quick and fun read.

Happy reading!

This past Sunday we had the pleasure of attending South Florida’s Geek Girl Brunch. It was such a blast! Geek Girl Brunch is a meetup group of ladies who geek out together, typically when mimosas are involved. Our GGB was held in Dania Beach at the Bad Boys of England pub. An appropriate location for the Dr. Who theme of this month’s brunch. The atmosphere was great and the company was even better. We met the most lovely geeky ladies and had a great time geeking out over our favorite shows, movies and books. We also received some great swag! Pictures below of all the free goodies we got and lovely women we met 🙂
