Complete Sherlock Holmes | Arthur Conan Doyle
post image

Have I mentioned that I‘m a fan of Sherlock Holmes since forever? Complete works & translated box set here and I also have an audiobook by Stephen Fry plus two or three comic books (as a gift from my father). I saw some Littens did a #sherlocked read a few years back. I think I‘ll be doing mine this year. 🤓🕵🏻‍♂️💪🏼

Sarah83 Looks great. I am also a great fan. 😍🤩 6mo
Lady_Tigana_20 My mom is a huge fan, but I‘m slightly embarrassed to admit I‘ve only read THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. ONE DAY I‘ll remedy that. I am, however, reading a series by Sherry Thomas in which Sherlock is actually a woman: A STUDY IN SCARLET WOMEN. 6mo
pppooraikul @Sarah83 Thanks! 😁🙌🏼 Interested in rereading? 😉 6mo

pppooraikul @Lady_Tigana_20 That sounds very intriguing! I‘ll keep my eyes open for your opinion on that one. 👀 6mo
Sarah83 @pppooraikul for sure. But I have several buddyreads coming up. Would September suit you? Or is this too late for you? 6mo
pppooraikul @Sarah83 I guess that‘ll be too late for me bc I already started. So sorry. 😢 However, I‘m not gonna rush and I‘ll keep updating my progress. If you catch up please tell me and we could read some together! 😁😁 6mo
Sarah83 @pppooraikul do you read the short stories or the books first? 😍🤩 6mo
pppooraikul I read by goodreads order. A Study in Scarlet >> The Sign of Four >> The Adventures >> The Memoirs >> The Hound >> The Return >> The Valley of Fear >> His Last Bow 😁 6mo

Sarah83 @julesG it's a good one. Still confusing what character Holmes is in this book... And no he really isn't a Sherlock... 😂😂😂 10mo

1. My brother & sister‘s exploits. One time, my sister was telling my brother to bite down on her finger. “It‘s ok, I‘m wearing dentist gloves.” She didn‘t have to tell him twice... 😆 Poor girl thought dentists wore latex gloves to protect from patient bites. 😂
2. 2 younger
3. Dec 2016, when I was sitting with my Bells after one of her knee surgeries. I joined #Sherlocked with @jpmcwisemorgan 😊
4. ABC Murders
5. Anyone!

Here‘s my very busy collage of stats from Goodreads. I‘m irritated that the year review & challenge numbers don‘t match, but I think trying to find the discrepancy will make me more stressed, so I‘m leaving it. This is the most I‘ve read in a year, thanks to Litsy buddy reads & book groups, reviewing (for SLC and NetGalley), and judging a book prize (for IBPA—still in progress). Tagging some of my fellow readers who have read with me this year!

jpmcwisemorgan Mine didn‘t match either! I‘m glad it‘s not just me. 13mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great year!!! 13mo

Richryan52 Happy New Year! You‘re on my list for The Merchant of Menace 13mo
Daisey Looks like a great year! Congratulations! 🎉 My totals don‘t match either. I‘m pretty sure Goodreads is counting a book twice somewhere (I found one like that), but I‘ve given up on finding the problem. 13mo

Another wonderful Sherlock Holmes pastiche by @Richryan52 ! I enjoyed this immensely. I love the dual timeline (1901 & 1501), the clever plot & suspenseful writing. It's a well-researched and engaging read!

Rating: 4.5🌟

My #Litsypenpal @Owlizabeth sent me this amazing book! I have read almost all of the Sherlock canon now, and do you know that I didn‘t own ANY physical copies of the stories until NOW?! This is an amazing edition with an atlas section at the end. More pics to come. #sherlocked Thank you so much, Elizabeth! 🥰

Owlizabeth I‘m so glad you like it!! 13mo

The Valley of Fear | Sir Arthur Doyle

Pickpick

I wish there had been more connection between the two stories during the second. It felt completely separate until the very end. However, I did enjoy both stories—the first with Sherlock Holmes solving a murder case and the second going back in time to set up why anyone would want the man murdered. I am between a pick and a so-so, but will bump it up for the love of Sherlock. I still love the short stories more. #sherlocked #serialreader

thereadingowlvina Agree! I felt the murder solving part is too short. I almost gave up on second part. Don't see the connection there until the very end. But I gave it a 4 stars read since it is like reading two mysteries in one story. 😁 1y
Richryan52 Similar structure to The Sign of Four. I love the story of the Scowerers. Plus it introduced Moriarty (edited) 1y
Daisey I agree, the separateness of the two parts kind of pulls me out of the story, but overall I did enjoy it. 1y
CoffeeNBooks I agree, also! It took me awhile to figure out how everything was related, as it seemed somewhat disjointed. But overall, I liked it. 1y
