Yes. I’m doing another challenge. And another back-list challenge. Because I have so many books I want to read that I’ve already bought or not! The hashtag for the challenge is #BacklistReader and I need to remember to post the links in the link up page. I still need to make my TBR perfect (I do still need to add up the living room books in my spreadsheet) so I will post it soon somewhere.
The main rules are simple and you can find them here on the sign up page.
"A Study in Scarlet" is the first published story of one of the most famous literary detectives of all time, Sherlock Holmes. Here Dr. Watson, who has just returned from a war in Afghanistan, meets Sherlock Holmes for the first time when they become flat-mates at the famous 221 B Baker Street. In "A Study in Scarlet" Sherlock Holmes investigates a murder at Lauriston Gardens as Dr. Watson tags along with Holmes while narratively detailing his amazing deductive abilities.
About the book
Yes, I decided to read a book that I should have read a long time ago. I don’t know why I’ve always postponed reading this book since I think I bought Doyle’s books 20 years ago and I’ve never read them. Did I like it? ? Hmm, the two stars seems to say no.
I do have opposite feelings about this book.
I liked the beginning, the characters’ introduction and the case, but I didn’t like the second part and this is the part that I read faster, because I did like the past narration. But I’m one who likes victory against religions where leaders are crazy people and by all means, I know that not all “rebels” win, but give me hope in a “fantasy” world? Yes I know that the case in the present couldn’t be presented as it is if the good guys won in the past, so it’s a circle with no end.

In this category I will publish about new books, according to Goodread.com. Meaning that I will choose a book each Monday, from the “New Releases” page @ GoodReads. I will choose random covers that speak to me, that are nice or cute, without looking at the author, genre or synopsis.
Baby It’s Cold Outside
Whenever I’m within ten feet of Eve Cupid, all I can do is grunt and try to hide my erection. It’s not just the effect she has on my body. It’s the effect she’s having on my heart…and my soul.
It’s her smile. It’s the way her fingers dance on the piano keys. When she sings, the sound of her voice makes things happen in my chest I didn’t know were possible.
It’s Christmas, and all I can think of is how to get her under my tree. As luck would have it, she needs a Christmas tree and my family happens to own a Christmas tree farm.
When my holiday wish finally comes true, it’s gone as quickly as it came because neither of us knows how to repair the sins of the past.
Author’s Note: Enjoy this holiday wonder with a grunty alpha, a kind-hearted girl trying to rebuild her life, and a whole lot of yummy sexy times under the twinkling Christmas lights. Always safe, no cheating, a little angst, and for sure a happily ever after for all.
All my book reviews are and will be 100% honest. I don’t get paid to write them and I don’t get “gifts” to write a good review so what I write is what I think. If I love a book, I’m going to say that, if I don’t like a book, I will write why I don’t. My critics aren’t an attack to the author, they are just how I feel about a subject or a style.
