As you know from my Stacking the Shelves posts, I review for another website (bookloons.com). As I cannot post my reviews there and here, but I would still like to count the books I read for the challenges, I am going to have a post like this at the end of the every month listing the books I reviewed and what challenges the went towards. Title: Extremities Author: David Lubar
Why Read?: For Fun Challenges: 100 Books in a Year
Thoughts:Part memoir, part field guide, this is a fun book for anyone who loves books. While the anecdotes about Leto's life are fun, the best part is when she talks about the books and the people who love them, stereotyping all the way.
Title: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Publisher: Blackstone Audio ISBN: 9780786105113
Why Read?: For Fun Challenges: Audio Book, British Books, Free Reads, 100 Books in a Year
Thoughts:I think I prefer Sherlock Holmes stories one at a time. This many all at once just made them seem so similar. I can appreciate how Doyle was a pioneer in the mystery field, but the story that I liked the best was the most gothic, "The Adventure of the Copper Beaches".
Publisher: Macmillan Young Listeners ISBN: 9781427211224
Why Read?: For Fun Challenges: Audio Book, Historical Fiction, British Books, Free Reads, 100 Books in a Year
Thoughts:This was a good old-school teen mystery. Some of the action, though, felt like it came out of nowhere, but the mystery was solid and very thought-provoking (like you would expect from a Holmesian novel), even if the denouement was a little early.
