I FINALLY had a chance to open all my happy mail and here’s one of the books I treated myself to.
When I first heard about this book, I put it on my TBR right away. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro @skippingstones is a YA inspired Sherlock Holmes mystery. Charlotte Holmes is the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes and together with Jamie Watson, they try to solve a mystery at their prep school Sherringford in Connecticut. Everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte—genius like her grandfather with a volatile temper—tells him he should stay away from her. But can he? YOU GUYS. Doesn’t this sound amazing? This is going on my TBR for June!
I’m also featuring my Sherlock wand hand made by my talented friend Mäeva @readinginhongkong who owns @wandwitchandwizard. She sells wonderful bookish wands, bookmarks and more in her shop. Mäeva is also having a rep search for her store. Check out @wandwitchandwizard for more details or the tag #wandwwrepsearch.
And finally, if you’ve read this far, thank you and here’s a small treat for you.
