Book Challenge: A Book 50 Years Older Than You

It’s Thursday. We made it to our spring break! 😄 Tomorrow is the first day of vacation. One of the first things we do is head to the library to stock up on books during the break. What are some things you do to get your vacation started?.
For #grimdragon A book that’s at least 50 years older than you: The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I’m still reading through the stories but I’m enjoying them so far. 

For #watermelanerdsapril The Dregs: Okay. I slipped in the crow because it went well with my Sherlock Holmes edition but it’s really a nod to one of my favorite band of criminals whom I think Sherlock Holmes would have probably found fascinating. 

For #thehamiltonedition “I am inimitable. I am an original.”-Most Unique Character: Sherlock Holmes! Most famous detective ever! 

For #squeakybookishlibrary Sun and Moon: Mrs. Hudson is the moon–calm and steady what Sherlock needs a lot. Irene Adler is the sun–fiery and burns which we know Sherlock has experienced with her!


The Sherlock skull bookmark with Mrs. Hudson’s quote “A nice murder. That’ll cheer you up” is from the Sherlock @nerdy.post. 


Book Challenge: The game is afoot! Sherlock Holmes

For #novemberbdaychallenge Watson, the game is a foot! Sherlock Holmes, I love the stories of Sherlock Holmes. I’m working my way through volume 1 of this Barnes & Nobles edition. It’s taking me a while because the writing is a bit dense, but I’m enjoying the stories overall. I also enjoy Sherlock Holmes inspired stories too. I enjoyed A Study in Charlotte and can’t wait to start Jackaby and the Enola Holmes series too! I’m also trying to introduce my kids to Sherlock Holmes with Babylit’s @babylitbooks Sherlock Holme’s Sounds Primer and the Children’s Illustrated Classics as well. 😁.

Featured also is my Sherlock wand hand made by my dear friend Maeva @readinginhongkong. I love it! My #booktwin Amy @ladyofthelibrary has the companion Watson wand! Both of these ladies are wonderful and you should definitely check out their accounts.


Anyone eager for the new Sherlock season in January? I can’t wait!


How was your weekend? I’ve been spending time with family especially now that they’re all on Thanksgiving break. It’s been overcast and rainy here too, yay!, but it also means picture taking is no bueno. 😔 Tonight is also date night and we’re planning to see Fantastic Beasts! Hope you’re all having a fantastic Monday!
