I felt #ambivalent and conflicted about this book. But overall, it was an #intriguing and #whimsical novel. If you're the reader who likes a lot of descriptions and don't mind the slow pace, you'd enjoy this book a lot more.

I'm a huge #Sherlock fan and always enjoy reading Sherlock adventures from different authors. When I saw this Sherlock adventure written from the young Irene Adler's POV, I just had to read it! And I'm glad I did because surprisingly, this was a pretty #goodfunread.

#1920s-#London-glitz-glamour-#foxtrot-#Charleston-#JazzAge-#flappers. Wow! What an #exceptionalbook! I enjoyed this book immensely and it was simply #unputdownable! Flawless writing, great plot, and amazing characters.

If you like #DowntonAbbey and #MrSelfridge, you would enjoy this book. #bookworm #booknerd #bibliophage #bookart #bookphotography #bookphotos #yycreads #calgaryreads #readforlife #read150 #calgarylibrary

A #brutal #murder occurred in a crowded residential suburb on the outskirts of #Tokyo, and 4 teenage girls somehow got themselves involved with the #killer. A so-so read. It was suspenseful in the beginning but it got monotonous after that.

This is a collection of 11 #horror/#paranormal #shortstories, which explores issues like family relationships, mother-daughter relationship, grandparents-grandchildren relationship, #marriage, etc. I genuinely enjoyed only two stories in this book. Others were boring and confusing which I don't quite follow.

I started this book with a #skeptical mindset but I stand corrected after I finished it. Who would have thought that a #formerNBA superstar could write?! I enjoyed this book right from beginning; it was such an #engaging and #unputdownable book!

IamIamIam I read an article a few months ago about this book. Jabbar said he would have been a writer years ago if basketball hadn't gotten in the way!! 😂 2y
thereadingowlvina @IamIamIam Ha, that's too funny! But he sure has a flair for writing! I still can't believe how good this book was 😄 2y

An #easy and #concise #read about a woman's role in church and family. This book discusses important issues for women in church such as attitude, appearance, testimony, design and contribution.
