No review today… sometimes you just don’t have time to read!
Instead of a review, though, I thought I might pose a question to our wonderful Watsonian community!
What are your favourite pastiches? Do you have ones that you just love? Ones that you read when you first discovered Holmes and Watson that have stuck with you through the years? Ones that strike you as particularly ‘true’ or any that ring false but you love them anyway? Let us know!
We’d also LOVE to see some SH shelfies! What does your Sherlock Holmes bookshelf look like? Is it neat? Do you embrace a minimalist aesthetic? Is it cluttered and overflowing? Do you despair because you need MORE shelves still to fit it all? Post shelfies (pictures of your shelves!) either in the comments, or tweet them at us @JHWatsonSoc! Use the hashtag #SHshelfie, if possible, so we can be sure to browse and admire accordingly!
I’ll have a new review soon (I have an ARC of Sherry Thomas’ “A Conspiracy in Belgravia” that I’m working my through; copies of Rohase Piercy’s “My Dearest Holmes” and the companion novel “A Case of Domestic Pilfering”; the middle grade book “Lock and Key” by the author of “Peter and the Starcatcher”, Ridley Pearson; and at least three other books that I need to get to!). Thanks for your patience, and I look forward to seeing those shelfies!
