    Arthur Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes novel is utterly unimpressive. In short, the book starts like this: [image error] and mid-way turns into this: And I am not even joking. The novel begins with Holmes and Watson meeting, moving into their Baker Street apartment an...

    Mysteries are my go to palette cleanser in between denser reads. I have a few go to series, but as my current contemporary series may be winding down, I am always on the lookout for mysteries both old and new. Even though the phrase "elementary, my dear Watson," has become part of the ...

    An anti-review I don?t read reviews of books, of which I am damn sure I will be reading it very soon. Now, I don?t know how this habit affects my reading. So, what happened was.. I was not aware of the fact that ?I had to be surprised when the second part of the book sta...

    SO I DID IT. CONGRATULATE ME. I read an adult book and a classic and I survived!! *flings confetti over self* Okay, except that actually I listened to an audio and I'm 100% sure the audio is the only reason I survived it, because, gawsh...while it's incredibly interesting, it's written...

    Gregson and Lestrade had watched the maneuvers of their amateur companion with considerable curiosity and some contempt. They evidently failed to appreciate the fact, which I had begun to realize, that Sherlock Holmes's smallest actions were all directed towards some definite and pract...
