    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: To be taught if fortunate

    Book review of To be taught if fortunate To be taught if fortunate is a short sci-fi novel by Becky Chambers. I found it via looking through my friends reads on Goodreads, and it looked enticing. Technically, it is categorized as a space opera. Whatever that means. (A quick online search tells me; “a novel, film, or television programme set in outer space, typically of a simplistic and melodramatic nature” – which doesn’t really say anything) To be taught if fortunate by Becky Chambers “In the future, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the galaxy transform themselves. At the turn of the twenty-second century, scientists make…
