The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 6-18-17

Sunday Post

Have you ever had a book just call your name? You know what I mean, where the book is singing this siren song (not literally, I’m not that crazy) that says, “Read Me. Read Me NOW! You know you want to.” That was The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes this week. It wasn’t what I’d planned to read, but I didn’t have an actual commitment. And even though the Goodreads ratings weren’t all that, I just couldn’t resist that song. And I was right not too. It was absolutely the right book at the right time, and I just fell into it and didn’t look up until it was done. I’m not sure it would appeal that much to people who didn’t have a thing for Sherlock Holmes, but for those of us that do, it works. And it helps tide me over, just a bit, until the next Holmes/Russell book by Laurie R. King. Which I definitely had a taste for after reading Lockdown, even though that was definitely not it. Still excellent, but not the detective I really wanted to see.

We’re finally getting around to seeing Wonder Woman this weekend. I was tied up last weekend finishing up an article and just couldn’t think of anything else. But this weekend was free and I can’t wait!

  1. Daughter of Sherlock Holmes sounds intriguing! I hope you enjoy Wonder Woman as much as I did. Great movie. Have an awesome week 🙂

  2. The Lost City of the Monkey God sounds great, I love adventure stories like that. And yes there are times when a certain books just calls my name- usually they turn out well, although not always. 🙂

    Hope Wonder Woman was good, I want to see it.
