A Sherlock challenge

8721893974_1f51cdfb67_zI’ve been wanting to read some Sherlock Holmes, especially with the recent spate of great screen adaptations (BBC’s Sherlock, I’m looking at you!), and Mari’s challenge is just the impetus I need. I generally have a dismal track record when it comes to challenge completion, but maybe I’m giddy on the heels of my #PinItDoIt success? Whatever the case, I’m signing up for this one.

Mari set forth lots of participation levels:

Inspector
Read all 9 listed above.
Lieutenant
Read 6 of your choosing.
Detective
Read 3 of your choosing.
Officer
Read 1 of your choosing.

I think I’m going for the Detective level, aiming to read the first three books: A Study in Scarlet (1887), The Sign of Four (1890) and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1892).

Luckily, I’ve got plenty of time; the challenge runs from the beginning of June through December 31st.

Here is where I’ll be linking up reviews, as I get to them.

    aw fun challenge! I did start reading A Study in Scarlet the other day (totes visualizing Cumbersquatch the whole time) but I just don’t really do challenges anymore.
    It does seem BBC Sherlock adapts pretty strictly, but Jonny Lee Miller is the Sherlock of my heart, tbh ♥

  3. Good luck, My challenge completion has been dismal since I’ve had Gage!

  4. Have you started reading yet? I’m going for the Detective level too. Right now I’m reading The Return of Sherlock Holmes.

What do you think? I'd love to know.
