41 done for #nancydrewchallenge and we‘re struggling during this busy season.

Nancy and the girls find not one but two mysteries to solve during a visit to Emerson to see Ned, Burt, and Dave. A phantom thief has been sneaking into a locked room, but how? And what happened to the treasure from a sunken riverboat? Nancy is on the job!

This was really cute. Best book of the year cute...No, but still a fun enjoyable read. I love the colors the illustrator uses and the author‘s way of making the child in the story talk to the reader and to the dragon.

This is a dragon (who look like dinosaurs) fantasy about a kingdom where the princess daughter has to marry and consummate the marriage to her father in order to pass power to the next ruler. Uuummmmm UGHHHHHH.

I will not be recommending this to friends, however, the artwork was amazing, and I can not wait to see what the author comes up with next.

38 down for #nancydrewchallenge - unlikely we‘ll finish the whole series this year but we‘re plugging along.

A life-size dancing puppet is plaguing an amateur theater troupe, and Nancy steps in to unravel this tangled mystery. As usual, several seemingly-unrelated threads come together and Nancy sorts everything out.

Hooked_on_books You‘ll be very disappointed in me. At the recent library book sale, there was a whole box full of old Nancy Drews in great condition and I didn‘t buy a single one. 😯 1mo
Hooked_on_books I know 😔 😆 1mo
Sace @Hooked_on_books I'll second that "what?!" ? 1w

This graphic novel is supposed to be a modern retelling of Jane Eyre. I found myself intrigued by the story, and with more questions than answers. I thought the ending was lacking. I am sure it comes close to the original story, but to me it seemed too soap opera. It‘s been done a million times in other stories in other ways. Overall, a great read, but it needed more.

It was just okay. I am not sure I would consider this a GN. I think of it more as a fully illustrated collection since little to no speech or thought bubbles were used. Some of the stories like the Mask of the Red Death were so paired down, it took it‘s soul away, while others, we just too long winded (I‘m looking at you Tell Tale Heart).

A fantastic read that was perfectly atmospheric for October. It had chills, adventure, and daring. Once started it was hard to put down. While the book does not need a sequel, I can not wait to read the one that just came out so i can see what these kids will do next.

Overall I did enjoy this book. There were things that were thoroughly predictable (like the end), and things not expected (like lucky items), but it was a pleasant experience.This is a very niche book. It‘s not one I could just hand to anyone and say “you‘re gonna love it” because I don‘t think it‘s true. But pair it with the kid that needs to hear it‘s message and you might just hit the jackpot.

#37 down for #nancydrewchallenge and #5 finished for #24B4Monday - not bad!

An interesting romp for Nancy and Co. in New York City and Hong Kong, matching wits with an international smuggling ring who have added kidnapping and assault to their crimes! Minus points for a ridiculous plane kidnapping that Nancy gets out of by writing an SOS in lipstick on a plane window, backwards, while tied up.
