Goodreads Monday Recommendations

Goodreads Monday #3

It’s that time of the week again — Goodreads Monday! This was started by Lauren’s Page Turners and it’s telling you what is on my TBR list. Sometimes, I feel like I’ll never get through my TBR list, but this is always good because it establishes why I want to read the books and sparks my interest again.

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavalloro

Jamie Watson has always been intrigued by Charlotte Holmes; after all, their great-great-great-grandfathers are one of the most infamous pairs in history. But the Holmes family has always been odd, and Charlotte is no exception. She’s inherited Sherlock’s volatility and some of his vices–and when Jamie and Charlotte end up at the same Connecticut boarding school, Charlotte makes it clear she’s not looking for friends.

But when a student they both have a history with dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Danger is mounting and nowhere is safe–and the only people they can trust are each other.

WHY I WANT TO READ IT: Like most books on my TBR list, this has been recommended to me often. It’s one of those that I actually bought as an ebook and circle back to a lot, but I’ve never got more than a few pages into it without giving up. The ebook layout for this one is frustrating because the font is tiny and it messes up all the other books I’m reading when I adjust the size.

I’m interested in reading A Study in Charlotte mainly because I love a good romance, which I heard this has. It’s also set at a boarding school! Now, I’m a sucker for books set at boarding schools for some reason. To be honest, I’m not a big mystery reader, but I’ve been saying for a while now I want to expand my genres and this feels like it could be a transition book.

Let me know what’s on your TBR list in the comments and if you’ve read A Study in Charlotte, share you thoughts with me.

read it and weep,

A Study in Charlotte has been on my TBR for a while! I want to read it because it would be interesting to see a Sherlock Holmes in female version, but i’ve hold back because i want to read the original sherlock holmes books first. On my current tbr i have from blood and ash, the starless sea and the gilded wolves, among many others✨

Ooh, that’s a good idea. I’ve never read the original Sherlock Holmes either. And The Gilded Wolves is another one on mine too! I can’t wait to see what you think of From Blood and Ash as well 💕


I have had that book on my TBR for what seems like an eternity now! I think for me it was mostly the Sherlock connection that grabbed me, but then I read ANOTHER YA Sherlock-esque book (from the POV of a female Moriarty) and then forgot this one existed too *hides* no wonder our TBRs keep growing …
