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.
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:
- A Study in Scarlet
- The Sign of the Four
- The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
- The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
- The Return of Sherlock Holmes
- The Hound of Baskervilles
- The Valley of Fear
- His Last Bow
- The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes
