Welcome to a brand new feature that is going to run for this month – this April we are going to celebrate the world of Books! The last few weeks and months we have all been part of a weird world to say the least so this month we thought it would be nice to talk about something that allows you to escape even if it just for a chapter at a time. So this month we are taking on the 30 Day Book Challenge and looking at a different topic each day, enjoy!
Day 10: Favourite Classic Book
NAME OF BOOK: Sherlock Holmes – The Valley Of Fear, Arthur Conan Doyle
This will not be the last book of Sherlock Holmes on this list but this is the first and for a very good reason. In 2016, when I lived on my own in Newcastle, I used to go to the library so much and one day I decided to read every single Sherlock Holmes book. So I spent weeks reading all the books back to back and whilst I really enjoyed reading the classics and seeing how Sherlock the TV show transferred the stories into modern situations.
I was already interested by this book when I rented it because the cover was bright and vibrant orange that is made me want to read it straight away. Also another thing that intrigued me was I had never heard of the book Valley of Fear and it made me want to read it to see why.
Right from the start this book captivated me, it is such an underrated Sherlock Holmes book there is so much to love about it and it has a great out come at the end with the twists and turns. The other thing about this book that is that it is so differently written to other Sherlock books – I don’t want to say anything as it will spoil it for you.
I am currently re-reading the whole Sherlock collection st the moment and I am so excited to get to this book to feel all the feelings I did the first time I read it.
