Recommended Read - Little Known Facts about Well-Known Places: Walt Disney World by Laurie Flannery

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked up this fun little book for a travel client of mine, and couldn't help but read it before giving it away! This has a lot of great tips and facts about Disney that is perfect for the new visitor, and even the seasoned pro. It's small enough to be packed into luggage and taken along with you on a trip to Disney, and could help fill your time while waiting in line for one of the more popular rides. :)

Recommended Read - Cursed in the Act by Raymond Buckland

Cursed in the ActCursed in the Act by Raymond Buckland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fans of Sherlock Holmes and other old-style mysteries take note - this is a series just for you! Meet the author Bram Stoker (whose most famous work was Dracula) as imagined in a fictional way through a creative mystery surrounding the Lyceum Theater, which he worked at in real life. The cast of characters feels true to form, and you may recognize some of the names that are dropped throughout the chase to find the dastardly saboteur involved in the crimes at the Lyceum. The only thing that didn't work for me? The weird constant references to red hair - it feels like the author is obsessed with it for some reason. But otherwise this was a fun mystery!

Dark Invasion: 1915: Germany's Secret War and the Hunt for the First Terrorist Cell in AmericaDark Invasion: 1915: Germany's Secret War and the Hunt for the First Terrorist Cell in America by Howard Blum
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great read for any history buff - or for anyone that enjoys mystery novels! Follow along with a real life spy thriller and learn about the war from a whole new angle. The writing is done in a way that it is not the type of dry, boring read you may often find in this genre, and pictures sprinkled throughout help to clarify mental images of key figures. A few parts did get slow and/or confusing, and since there is such a large cast of characters the names could be easy to confuse, but overall this is a solid read.
