Mehso-so

So I really, really liked this book. But I can also fully admit it is the weakest in the series thus far, hence the so-so rating. While I ate it up, I could see where others would outright pan it.

Interestingly, this is the 666th book I have logged as read on my Goodreads since I started the account back in March of 2011! You can find me on Goodreads @gnora

A Study in Emerald | Neil Gaiman

This Neil Gaiman short story isn‘t his usual writing style, it‘s almost modeled after a Sherlock Holmes story, but I loved it! I think this was really fun, and it was cool to see something totally different from him. #authoramonth @Soubhiville

This book is fabulous! I love how it brings together some many other books & characters in such a perfect way! Especially enjoy the style of writing where the characters add their notes and observations in the margins as it were!

Day 17 - #PurpleCover #NamasteNovember #TheDevilandSherlockHolmes #DavidGrann

The Devil and Sherlock Holmes has multiple stories and ALL TRUE except Sherlock Holmes. There's true crime, passion, and even a sea story about a man's passion on finding the largest squid. The story about Chris who perfected the perfect crime and wrote about it is superb! There's also a true story of the greatest baseball stealer ever and one you'll never forget!

A supernatural spin on the classic

This book was fun though it started getting predictable. If every case have a supernatural element then I'm gonna get the outcome pretty easily. Some of the humour was a bit forced.

Dispite the negatives, I enjoyed the friendship between holmes and Watson. I also enjoyed seeing how the sherlock holmes cases which are very familiar too me, would be twisted. I wish more had been done to show Warlocks power

Hey #HistoricalHussies how about this one? I ♥♥♥ Mann's Newbury & Hobbes series. I found this one on #Bookoutlet and was intrigued.

Book 95 of the year, finished Nov 13, audio

I listened to the end of this 3 times before I finally gave up. I just couldn't understand what was happening. How did they know that was the bad guy? Where was the chain of logic? Why are the brothers such assholes? Just not a good book. I reccomended you skip this one all together, pretend it doesn't exist and enjoy the rest of the series.

Still struggling through this one. It's really just not holding my interest the way all the other Mary Russell books have and I don't know why. I really want it to be good and it's just not.

At least I've got a fresh baked cookie, a glass of wine, and this furry face to keep me company.

Loved it!! This book had me hooked from the start. I‘ve seen reviews lamenting the stilted love story, but it didn‘t bug me. What I cared about was the mystery and it pulled me along just perfectly. A fun escape!

My hazelnut hot cocoa has been a perfect companion. 😋

This gives me a total of 18 hours. I‘ll have to read into the night to finish the full 24.
