*hides while whispering in a way that isn’t unlike Gollum* Hi again. It’s me. The library and bookish things’ stalking monster. Boring Person™
Because I am SUCH a masochist, I went on with my life for, like, an entire 2 days thinking I haven’t finished a single book this week until 3 seconds ago when I realized I have finished one. And got past the half in another one ! So it wasn’t so bad !
I got to page 182 of
The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.
From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.
So far it has not disappointed me, and I am wondering why I haven’t read it before ! I am a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, so I keep getting excited about mentions of the books in A Study in Charlotte !
Plus the one book I have finished, Daughter of the Burning City, for which my love grows the more time passes because I read other books and get to appreciate it ❤ But here’s my review of it !
So I am currently at:
That concludes my update for week 3 of The Reading Quest ! How did YOU do ? What are your recent reads ? Have you read A Study in Charlotte or Daughter of the Burning City ?
