How many of you are Sherlock Holmes fans? I mean, classic 1880s Sherlock. No? J

ust BBC Sherlock? Well, if you’re a lover of classics like I am, check out “Mycroft Holmes” by Anna Waterhouse and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. 




This book takes place when Mycroft, fresh out of college, attempts to solve a deep, tangled mystery in the Port of Spain, where his best friend, Douglas, and his fiancée, Georgiana, used to live. It is extremely well written, and the dialogue sounds just like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself wrote it. Mystery, action, quick wit - it’s got it all. It even tugged at my heartstrings a bit. I definitely suggest you check it out, it’s worth the read!

The City of Bones 

Written by Cassandra Clare



Have you ever wondered about angels and demons ? what about people who are half angel and are born to protect mundanes (mortals) from supernatural beings. As in werewolfs, vampires, warlocks,fair folk. These men and women are called nephilim. Their trained to fight supernaturals harming mortals. Plus,have some killer tattoos that protect them. Giving them power in skills they need. If your intrested give the city of bones by Cassandra Clare a try. It's about a teenage girl finding out her mother was an ex shadowhunter and came to the mortal world to hide from her archenemy which is her husband who was trying to take a prized possession from her.Having given birth to the girl already both flee from the shadowhunter world.And find refuge in New york city. The girl never knows about her other life until she meets a significant one.That no other mundane can see. And from then on her entire life turns upside down.this has intense romance that make you feel every emotion you could think of for the characters you'll love it. TBH it's very dark and sexy and thrilling. Jace is to die for!! Oops said too much!


I usually like reading a book that jumps right to the point where it has me wondering what will happen next. This is the book. If you like the same too then READ IT!.You won't regret it. and take it from me (as the bookworm ) LOL you will not be able to stop reading it it's that good.
