I recently reorganised my bookshelf and ordered books in terms of those that I have read and those that I have yet to read and the order that I might read them in. I had some books left and I wasn’t sure whether I was going to read them or not so I decided to try a chapter of each book to decide whether I want to read them.
I won this book in a giveaway and it was one of the books that I didn’t know much about. When I read the blurb I wasn’t sure about the book. It features a princess who makes a love potion and accidentally drinks it herself and another girl who works with potions and tries to help the princess. There is a possible love interest and social media. The only thing that really interested me was the apothecary part. I read a couple of chapters to experience the book from both perspectives. The thing that put me off this book was the fact that both females are romantically interested in the same man and we see him interact with the princess where he seems completely uninterested in her.
How to Think Like Sherlock: Improve Yours Powers of Observation, Memory and Deduction by Daniel Smith
I actually ended up reading more of this book! I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. It mixes quotations from the original Sherlock Holmes stories with research, puzzles and suggestions. If this interests you then I would recommend checking it out. I will be posting a review when I finish the book! I think that it would make a great gift for a Sherlock fan and I might actually get it for one of my friends.
I still have more books to sort out so I may be doing more of these posts. Let me know if you do this tag!
