It's Monday! What are you reading? (#8)

It's Monday! is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

This week is #Ayearathon's week-long readathon and the theme for this month is classics. So I've decided to finally attempt to fulfill one of my reading goals of this week and read a classics.

For this readathon, I've decided to try and get through as much of the Sherlock Holmes series by Arthur Conan Doyle as I can (in order, of course), starting with A Study in Scarlet.

A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

In the debut of literature's most famous sleuth, a dead man is discovered in a bloodstained room in Brixton. The only clues are a wedding ring, a gold watch, a pocket edition of Boccaccio's Decameron, and a word scrawled in blood on the wall. With this investigation begins the partnership of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Their search for the murderer uncovers a story of love and revenge - and heralds a franchise of detective mysteries starring the formidable Holmes.

For those who are interested, the chronological order of the Sherlock Holmes tales are as follows:

  1. A Study in Scarlet
  2. The Sign of the Four
  3. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
  4. The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
  5. The Return of Sherlock Holmes
  6. The Hound of Baskervilles
  7. The Valley of Fear
  8. His Last Bow
  9. The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes


  1. Ooh nice! Funny, I just finished reading Colleen Gleason's The Spiritglass Charade and it is her new YA series that involves Bram Stoker's sister and Sherlock Holmes' niece! Hope you enjoy these!
