Let's compile a list of suggested reading!

Of course, we can start off with the originals by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

I also highly recommend the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series by Laurie R King, which starts with The Beekeeper's Apprentice: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...

A few others that are on my list to read or that I've read before are..

A Study in Lavender: Queering Sherlock Holmes... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...
A Study in Sherlock... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
In the Company of Sherlock Holmes... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
Echoes of Sherlock Holmes... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
The Enola Holmes series... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6...
The House of Silk... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

One of my favorite fan fictions is in the BBC Sherlock fandom and by rageprufrock called "The Least of All Possibilities" http://archiveofourown.org/works/330685

What are your favorites? Any you are hoping to pick up for January? :)

Amanda (amandaquotidianbooks) | 2 comments I have the entire Mary Russell series staring at me on my TBR shelves. I've read The Beekeeper's Apprentice, but need to catch up with my mom and grandmother who have read the rest of them. I'm hoping to reread TBA and maybe move on to A Monstrous Regiment of Women in January :)

Yay! This sounds like an excellent choice :3 I've been collecting the paperback UK covers for the series, and I have the latest one pre-ordered. And guess when it's supposed to come out? January! I probably shouldn't reread it since I have a pile of other things picked out already, but I'm pretty excited about the timing haha :)

Cheryl (crflamesfan) Awesome! I have been wanting to get into some Sherlock, but just keep putting it off. This sounds like a great reason to start. I have no idea where to start the only Sherlock book I have read is A Study in Scarlet. Mystery in January...love it!

Missy  (adpibookworm) I am going to read a few of the original Sherlock stories and also try The Beekeepers Apprentice.


message 6: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (crflamesfan) I think I'm going to give the Beekeepers Apprentice a try. anyone have any suggestions on a copy of Sherlock Holmes. I'd like a complete copy but I have no idea what would be good.

Emily (emilyesears) | 1 comments I'm going to read Moriarty, which is the sequel to The House of Silk.


message 8: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahofthebooks) I've also got Moriarty and The House of Silk that a someone else mentioned!
I would also recommend A Study in Charlotte, it's a recent YA Sherlock Holmes adaptation - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
And if anyone wants to correspond their watching to their reading I'm going to be catching up on Elementary, which I really enjoy and recommend! I'm terrible at TV so this is my excuse to try and get caught up.

A Study in Charlotte A Study in Charlotte (Charlotte Holmes, #1) by Brittany Cavallaro and Trouble Is a Friend of Mine (Trouble, #1) by Stephanie Tromly Trouble Is a Friend of Mine are Sherlock based books. The first of which has a female Sherlock.


message 10: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahofthebooks) Has anyone picked up A Study in Scarlet Women yet? It's an October new release I've heard about a few times on Book Riot's podcasts. Seems to be a gender flipped Sherlock. I may add it to my TBR for the month!

message 13: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahofthebooks) Does anyone else plan on making a blog post/video/instagram/etc... TBR of what they're reading? I was thinking of doing one of my own, just waiting on a few things to come in.

Since I'm only planning on reading two books maximum, I'll not be making an announcement this time around :)

I'll be posting a TBR either tonight or tomorrow hopefully! It'd be neat to see everyone else's. ^___^ Maybe I'll start a TBR thread on here!

I am currently listening to this on Audible and the narrator is EXCELLENT. The story is pretty good too. I'm almost done with The House of Silk and will be jumping right into Moriarty once I'm done.


message 20: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahofthebooks) I've also got the House of Silk and Moriarty. I've got to finish a small stack of library books, but those are definitely coming up for a read in the next week or so.
