    Book review of Sherlock’s sisters

    Book review of Sherlock’s sisters This book review of Sherlock’s Sisters will be highly influenced by my own taste of course. Like any literary fan with respect for myself, I appreciate a good mystery. And as a fan of the whole detective with good reasoning skills-narrative, this book had me on sight. Sherlock’s Sisters is a collection of short stories which were either written by and/or feature female detectives. All written in the same era as Sherlock Holmes gained popularity. Sherlock’s sisters by Nick Rennison Sherlock Holmes was the most famous detective to stride through the pages of late Victorian and Edwardian fiction, but he was not the only one.…

    Book review: The Cradle of all Worlds

    Book review of the Cradle of all Worlds The Cradle of all Worlds by Jeremy Lachlan is a middlegrade/teen fantasy book. It’s the first in the Jane Doe Chronicles about the girl Jane Doe. I honestly picked up this book because I liked the cover (again) and the title seemed enticing. I mean, show me a fantasy-reader who doesn’t appreciate a good portal-story, right? Furthermore, the description on the back sealed the deal for me. I just had to have it. The Cradle of all Worlds “We enter the Manor at will, We enter the Manor unarmed We enter the Manor alone. Fourteen years ago, Jane Doe and her father…

    Book review: Tin by Pádraig Kenny

    Book review of Tin by Pádraig Kenny Tin by Pádraig Kenny is a middlegrade sci-fi book, about a boy and his robot friends. The book is published by Chicken House.

    Book review: Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

    Book review of Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf is considered a classic by many. It’s also one of the books on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge list. Finishing that is one of my long term reading goals. Mrs Dalloway and her flowers All it says on the back of my edition of the book is “Still, life had a way of adding day to day.” Which is actually super fitting for the book. I remember watching the movie based on the book, “The Hours” with Meryl Streep. It begins by Mrs Dalloway saying “I’ll do the flowers myself”. Just as the book. But from there,…
