A Study In Scarlet Women
A Study In Scarlet Women | Sherry Thomas
USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down… With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London. When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her. But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind. From the Trade Paperback edition.

It was supposed to rain today. I was unmotivated most of the day to go walk, & then didn‘t want to go before meeting some church friends for dinner (too muggy & sweaty). So, of course, it started raining at dinner. I decided to try a late walk after & managed to get 30 min in between storms. #BFCr2 2/4 walks. Hoping to get in longer walks the rest of the week. Enjoying the audiobook version of lady Sherlock series.

I was at a library book club last week, and the librarians were talking about summer reads. They suggested this series, & I wanted to read it again. I have the series on kindle but decided to do audio. 3 of my favorite books from last yr, & I‘m very excited for the 4th to come out.

Lady_Tigana_20 I really enjoy this series. 3d

I've been reading faster than I can update my social media (23 books in May! That is a new record for me!), so I started a new blog just for reviews of everything I've been reading. A new, full length review goes up at least 3x a week, and I cover everything from YA to nonfiction, adult, mysteries, some kid lit, new releases, back list books, and more.

Whew! I survived my first weekend of dry camping! 🎉

Those “33 flights” were actually just walking around our campsite, which was at 9,000 ft. Everything seems hard at that elevation. 🤪 Taking down a tent/packing everything up in 30 mph winds made for a good workout!

Didn‘t do a lot of reading, but did do a little audio listening when the wind kept me up! Hopefully will still hit 3 books this week.

I was really confused at the beginning and thought I wasn‘t following the story - turns out I was and a key bit of information that would have been really helpful early on was left until the end to divulge. I‘m undecided on whether I‘ll continue with the series. If I do, it won‘t be on audio - there was simply too much going on for me to keep it all straight.

I can only say that I semi-read this #audiobook, as I kept falling asleep and having to go back to the place where I had dozed off. It was great for distracting my active mind so that I could sleep, and I caught enough of the story to be able to move on to the next in the series. Books serve many needs for their readers!

MallenNC I‘ve done this too! Mostly with podcasts but sometimes books. It does relax my mind. 6mo

Louise @RebL @MallenNC @Melli Glad to hear I‘m not the only one! In book 2 in the series, I‘ve set the 30 minute timer 3 times so far at the part where Charlotte Holmes examines a body but have yet to hear the whole scene! Maybe 4th time‘s a charm! 😆 (edited) 6mo
RebL Potato different than re-reading, “Wait. What‘s happening?” And going back to the point where your brain quit, but your eyes ploughed forward. 6mo
RebL Also, my daughter programmed my phone to replace “no” with “potato” and I love it too much to change it, but I also forget to correct it. 6mo
Louise @RebL I like your daughter already! 😂 That‘s simply brilliant. Spell check makes so many stupid errors that it must be refreshing to take the reins and make the errors interesting! Hats off to her! 🎩👑 6mo

My second read of the new year and my first for #newyearwhodis I haven‘t read a mystery in years but I‘ve always enjoyed a good Sherlock Holmes one. But imagine if Sherlock was actually Charlotte Holmes, an upper class daughter who is suddeny a societal pariah, and Watson was actually Mrs. Watson, a lady who takes her in? This was fun, thanks to @ElenaBaer for putting it on the list and @monalyisha for the challenge!

CocoReads I‘ll be checking out the others in the series at some point! This also is letter s for #LitsyAtoZ @BookishMarginalia and also fits female detective for #booked2019 @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage 6mo

This series is so well put together. The women are strong, fully aware of the limitations set for women within their era, yet still find ways to gain their own agency.
Perfect for non-mystery readers looking to try something different.

It‘s a really good thing I have commute reads on audio because my actual reading is nonexistent at the moment. I liked this one but was a bit confused for a majority of the story about who was who. So many names to keep separate. I think actually seeing them in print might have helped. I did like how the book progressed and I loved Charlotte ❤️. 🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♀️ 4 spy ladies for this one!

julesG Did you listen to it on 2x speed? 7mo
Karen3 @julesG yes I cant stand when the reader is slow. My mind ends up wandering so when it‘s faster o have to pay attention. 7mo
julesG But don't they sound squeaky then? 7mo
Karen3 @julesG a little bit but I get used to it. When I like a narrator‘s voice I will slow it down and enjoy it but usually not below 1.25 7mo

How fun! This book/author came up a lot during #rombklove so I decided to check it out. I've never been super into Sherlock so I don't have comparisons to make, but I think this version is delightful and feminist and socially aware. I'm going to read book 2 very soon.

I've never read Sherry Thomas before, any recs for her romance novels? I'm all ears.

Double shot cafe mocha, made with Starbucks Cocoa mix, pairs well with reading. I keep sneaking time with this one, it is such an engaging read. The way Charlotte Holmes is ahead of her time in her feminism reminds me of how Dr Who writers depict this time period. I am enioying a female Holmes as much as I enjoy the Thirteenth Doctor.

This is my final prompt to complete #readharder2018, and I'm reading the tagged book via #Overdrive to satisfy it. Good thing too, because after a lot of nonfiction, I was dying for an interesting fictional story. Loving it so far! Earlier in the year, I printed out the #readharder challenge out of curiosity, and discovered I had already unknowingly completed a third of the prompts with my normal reading, and decided to try to complete it. 😁👍📚

Now this is how you reimagine Sherlock Holmes. Charlotte‘s logic, planning...even when it backfires on her..., deduction, & just all around take no shit attitude is 💯. I can already see that this is going to be a series I will relish. I look forward to seeing how these characters develop & all the ways Lady Sherlock refuses to bend to the will of the times while solving all the mysteries that are just too much for the male brain.

🥧Intelligent writing style fits the time period; slightly pretentious at parts.
🥧Fat-phobic commentary occasionally.
🥧Intricate mystery kept me guessing.
🥧Separation between case & Sherlock‘s contributions for the first 3/4 of book.
🥧Progressed unnecessarily slower than expected.
🥧Difficult to connect w/most characters.
🥧Flat and one-dimensional.
🥧There are better written Sherlockian narratives out there.
🥧2.75/5

A female Sherlock Holmes is not a new idea, but this one is very well done. It is a nice take on the mystery itself. However, the characters are the best part. They are well rounded without taking themselves too seriously. And tru...ish to the source, "Sherlock" has an addiction to a white powder, just not the same one. I really enjoyed this one. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You know when people ending relationships say its not you its me? That‘s pretty much what happened with this book. My reading slump is very real right now and I‘m so sad that it had to happen when I got this book from Libby because I really wanted to devour it and love it but I just couldn‘t focus at all. So here‘s hoping that the slump goes away and next time I decide to try this book it actually works out!

I loved Sherry Thomas's Lady Sherlock series! Thomas retells the story of Sherlock Holmes brilliantly, creating a character in Charlotte Holmes who is just as brilliant as Sherlock (her alter ego) and yet also embodies femininity. There's a touch of romance, a beautiful relationship with her sister, and a cast of complex secondary characters. Excellent and entrancing--I can't wait for the pre-ordered book 3 to arrive!

Second book done for #24in48 and I absolutely loved it. All of the intrigue of a Sherlock Holmes mystery with the charm of a great modern novel. Turned around and told as a woman genius. Great story and characters (and enough nods to the originals that it brought me great joy whenever I discovered them! - For example the Inspector she works with has a name that is an anagram for Lastrade!) I‘m thrilled it‘s a series and can‘t wait to read more!
