The end of year means LISTS, LISTS, LISTS!


Sherlockian Pastiches

FYI, an update about reading Sherlock Holmes pastiches...

More than two years ago, I asked for recommendations of Sherlock Holmes pastiches and received great replies. (Thank you!) I waited until I'd finished going through all of Arthur Conan Doyle's canonical Holmesian writings in order, but now I've embarked on my pastiche reading. I'm still only "baby steps" into the project, but I thought I'd list the novels I've read thus far, ranked in order from my most favorite to my least favorite. My reviews are general, and though they may contain a few spoilers about the premise of a given work, they don't give away any twist endings or key surprises.

There are new entries on my list since the last time I posted an update.

Here's my ranked list of Sherlock Holmes pastiches read thus far with my reviews. )


Sherlock-Related Teas

I'm continuing to drink my way through the Sherlock Holmes-themed tea blends at Adagio Teas. (You can search for blends by name or by creator here.) My niece and nephew created a monster when they gave me the new teapot for Christmas! In case you're interested, here are my updated amateur "reviews" of the blends I've tried thus far, ranked in order of my enjoyment.

I'm off on the first of my three trips over this next three-week period. *waves* See you soon! I hope all is well with you, my friends.
