The Complete Sherlock Holmes
The Complete Sherlock Holmes | Arthur Conan Doyle, Kyle Freeman
Volume II of The Complete Sherlock Holmes begins with The Return of Sherlock Holmes. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, tired of writing about Holmes, had killed him off at the end of "The Final Problem," the last tale in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (found in Volume I of The Complete Sherlock Holmes). Public demand for new Holmes stories was so great, however, that Conan Doyle eventually resurrected him. The first story in The Return, "The Adventure of the Empty House," features Conan Doyle's infamously inventive explanation of how Holmes escaped what seemed like certain death. This volume also includes two other collections of Holmes stories, His Last Bow and The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes; Conan Doyle's final full-length Holmes novel, The Valley of Fear; a pair of parodies, "The Field Bazaar" and "How Watson Learned the Trick"; and two essays about the "private life" of the beloved sleuth.

Weekly goals: read Methland, Circe, and 6 Sherlock Holmes stories…

Almost didn‘t meet last week‘s goals but family was in town so I‘m giving myself some slack. Reviews of last week to come, and hopefully good posts for this week!

#weeklygoals:
I‘m hoping to finish The Children of Blood and Bone by Tuesday and All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Wednesday, read the next story in Sherlock, and start A Ladder to the Sky and The Last Time I Lied before the week is over. Big ambitions but let‘s see how it goes! 😊

bewareofwords Good luck! 🤗 8mo

My goal is to read a story a week. So I‘m going to attempt to review each story in a blurb and then review the collection as a whole when finished.

A Study In Scarlet: As someone who is fascinated with Sherlock as a character, I quite enjoyed the first part of the story. However, the beginning of the second part felt unnecessary and drug on. Does anyone understand why it was included when it was then paraphrased at the end?

Astroneman Love love love!!! 8mo

Lazy day for me and Henry (Tuesday‘s are my Sunday‘s). While he takes a nap, I‘m going to try to sneak in another chapter or two of reading.

Anyone else really struggle with their #catsoflitsy attempting to eat their books?

GondorGirl My Tommy used to try and chomp my books. Luckily he seems to have grown out of it. 8mo
julesG Not the books, but the notes stuck in some books. Not sure what my #CupidGoesPostal match had next to the note paper, but it's only the notes from this particular Litten that I had to rescue from their specific books. They are in a ziploc bag now. 😬 8mo
hjreviews @GondorGirl I hope Henry grows out of it! Having to “hide” all my books all the time is irritating to my inner book nerd and desire to show off my collection 😂 8mo

Reading buddy number two helped me finish this up today! I‘m slightly sad it‘s over, but luckily there are so many stories that I could start over down the road, not remember any of the resolutions and be surprised all over again! Holmes and Watson are two of my most favorite literary characters and I thoroughly enjoyed this collection. #Lennox #catsoflitsy

Some of my favorites...

*BOOK SERIES- Sherlock Holmes was my favorite when I was younger, but I don't really follow series much lately.
*MOVIE- Coraline (I actually like the movie better!!)
*Dessert- Creme Brûlée forever and always ?. *Color- lavender, green, and blue.
*Flower- Calla lily (the nose huggers)

Sace Oooo. I forgot about creme brulee. That's a good one too! 2y
RaimeyGallant I'm going to post one of my favs here: I still think The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series is up there on my favs list. :) 2y

My summer to-read list, which I will definitely not finish. My goal is to get through at least 15 of them. They're in baskets because I have negative bookshelf space in this tiny-ass apartment.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa That's a good sized pile! I can't read all the titles, but it looks like a good summer to me (or rest of the year). 4y
