Hey readers, sorry for such a long absence from the blog. Once Clockwork Princess comes out, look for posts about my thoughts of the book.
Which leads to my idea for writing some TMI/TID fan fiction, I had an epiphany for an awesome series of stories that expand upon Cassandra Clare’s works. My short series is going to be called The Seraphic Artifacts involving Ezekiel, a 17 year old Shadowhunter living in the Chicago Institute. I have the basic plot figured out, but am still coming up with other characters and gathering research for the Chicago Institute. I am aiming to release it very similarly to the Sherlock Holmes stories, by posting a chapter weekly.
Hey readers, I am looking for some book recommendations. I am a big fan of fiction, specifically fantasy. Looking for something intriguing, like The Mortal Instruments, with the mystery of Sherlock Holmes mixed in. Any suggestion is a good suggestion for me!
What would you recommend?
Hey readers! It got crazy busy at work with a huge trade show to design for, but I finally finished A Study in Scarlet. I really loved the back story of the murderer and what made him leave the United States. At first, I was so confused about being in the desert at first, but it lead to some interesting turns in events. I’d rather people take the time to read the backstory and want to keep this spoiler free.
What should we read for November?
Hey readers! I’ve been lagging in A Study In Scarlet once the killer was revealed and we get the whole background story. So this will discuss everything up to that point.
I love how proper the language usage is for the story, it keeps my attention without coming across as drab. I love how Watson analyzes Sherlock and his knowledge of certain topics. One of my favorite Sherlock quotes is from that section about a man’s brain being like a little attic and one must be careful of what he stores there. It seems so true, I’d rather be a master of a series of related topics as opposed to having a little of everything.
I really like how Sherlock has the kids of the area pay attention and follow people, it really shows how people wouldn’t notice and would speak openly around kids and think they weren’t paying attention. The woman coming in to claim the ring definitely threw me until I thought it could’ve been the murderer in disguise. I like how in the end they catch the man who happens to be driving a cab waiting at Baker Street.
I definitely saw a lot of correlation between parts of the book being integrated into the movie. When the went to the home where the man was killed, they comment on how the police marched all over the lane, ruining prints of those who were there earlier. I instantly thought of Watson asking about the rugby match in the graveyard from the movie and chuckled. Plus they seemed to nailed Lestrade’s character completely.
