Overall, I liked this. The characterization of Holmes and Watson feels right.

This book has gone pretty fast; I‘ve got about an hour and a half left. #audiowalk

I couldn‘t find a new walking book I wanted to listen to, then someone mentioned this. I thought it looked interesting and involved Christmas but wasn‘t too Christmasy, so I got it from Hoopla and now it‘s my walking book. It was a beautiful day here for walking. #audiowalk

Conclusion of a 2 part-er within this long Mary Russell / Sherlock Holmes series. It must have been good cos I stayed up until 3am to finish it and I really try not to do that too often!! I love the historical detail in this series and Mary is a fabulous character. No 10 in the series. #CrimeReads #CosyCrime #CrimeFiction #Sherlock #HistoricalCrime #SherlockHolmes #MaryRussell #DetectiveNovel

If you enjoy reading Sherlock Holmes I believe you would enjoy this book, in which James Lovegrove has done a good job of capturing the essence of the original books. This captures the darker side of Christmas linked to Christmas traditions of the past in some countries. Overall enjoyable and kept you guessing to the end.

4th book finished for #WinterReadathon

DieAReader Awesome job♥️🤓📚🎄 5d
Andrew65 @DieAReader Thanks 🥰🎉⛄️ 5d
MatchlessMarie I meant to read this one last year but I realized it was part of a series so I am trying to finish the earlier ones first. 3d
Andrew65 @MatchlessMarie These actually stand up very well as standalones from what I can see. I think ‘I have now read 3 of the series. 2d

Time for a slightly different Christmas book for #WinterReadathon with Sherlock Holmes.

James Lovegrove usually does a good job of these.

Possibly won;t get many word search or bingo words with this one.

DieAReader Maybe not but, it looks good nonetheless🤓 Enjoy! 6d
Andrew65 @DieAReader Got all but one of the words for the full house today so think time is on my side 🤣 6d
DieAReader @Andrew65 I‘d have to agree🤣 6d

I've never read the original Sherlock Holmes books but I love the YA Enola Holmes books and this great series by Laurie R King gives an older Sherlock a young and brilliant wife, Mary Russell and she is the narrator of this richly researched historical series. This particular one is the first half of a 2 part-er which is slightly annoying... but I still highly recommend them. #CrimeReads #CosyCrime #Sherlock #HistoricalCrime

Sherlock: Chronicles | Steve Tribe

This was a great exploration of Sherlock series 1 to 3 (so it doesn‘t include The Abominable Bride or Series 4). Pairing original stories with scripts, showcasing lots of great photos, discussing effects and stunts and continuity…lots to learn about the show. My only quibble is that not all of the photos had captions. Now off to rewatch Sherlock 😆

Mycroft and Sherlock | Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Anna Waterhouse

I was excited to find this at the library today as I thoroughly enjoyed the first book: Mycroft Holmes. I have admired Kareem Abdul-Jabbar from my childhood days and to know he shares my love of mysteries makes him even cooler in my eyes.

Victorian Undead: Sherlock Holmes Vs Zombies! | Ian Edginton, Davide Fabbri

I read this graphic novel last night, full title: Victorian Undead: Sherlock Holmes Vs Zombies!, & it does not hide its light under a bushel. Victorian London, Holmes, Watson, Mycroft (looking more than a little like veteran actor, Charles Gray) & Moriarty. And zombies, lots of flesh-munching, brain-eating zombies! Romping fun, & atmospheric artwork. 🧟‍♀️🔎🧟‍♂️
There's a sequel featuring Dracula, which I'll see if the library can get in 🧛🏻‍♂️
