Lond has created an extremely fun read in her novel, My Sparkling Misfortune. Although Lord Arkus is a “villain” of sorts, he is exceptionally funny, and Lond’s sheer wit and storytelling ability will have the reader glued to the story from the very first page. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the story, especially because I thought it was going to be for MG and below, since it’s illustrated (for some reason I associate illustrations with childhood books). Yet, not only are the illustrations great, but the story as a whole grips the read and doesn’t let go until it’s over.

This is a hilarious novel. I’m not one to laugh aloud when I’m reading; it’s a very rare feat, but Lond had me going with her portrayal of Lord Arkus and the other loveable characters throughout this epic tale. I absolutely adored this novel; it’s great for all ages, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cute novel that will make them laugh...
