Just Joined: Classics Retold and Bloglovin20
May 2, 2013 by Alice in Readerland
I’m happy to announce that I’ve joined Classics Retold!
Hosted by Alison @ The Cheap Reader (Children’s Classics Section), Alyssa @ Books Take You Places (Ancient to Renaissance Lit Classics Section), Brittany @ The Book Addicts’s Guide (Mythology Section), Charlene @ Bookish Whimsy (19th Century & Gothic Classics Section), and Wendy @ Excellent Library (American & Misc Section).
What is Classics Retold? In September, bloggers will be choosing a classic tale to read, then reading and watching retellings, spin-offs, sequels or adaptions of the classic, and writing reviews on them.
The classic I chose for this project was the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Author Conan Doyle!
Besides the original classic, so far I’ve planned to read and review The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King and The Case of the Missing Marquess (Enola Holmes Mysteries #1) by Nancy Springer. Do you have any Sherlock Holmes spinoffs/retellings/adaptions/sequels to recommend? If so, I’d love to hear them!
I’ve also just joined Bloglovin!
That will be cool. I joined also. I’m going to be reading Robin Hood. My post should be up soon.
I love ‘Robin Hood’; I’m excited to see what retellings you read! :) Thanks for stopping by & commenting!
I love the Enola Holmes series! You will really enjoy them! I also suggest the BBC Sherlock for viewing… And, Secret Letters by Leah Scheier. It’s not so much an adaptation, but it has ties to Mr. Holmes. Can’t wait for your posts!
That’s good to hear, and I’ll have to check out your recommendations! :) Thanks for stopping by & commenting!
Can’t wait to read your posts about Sherlock Holmes. You could try watching the two movies played by Robert Downey, Jr. as well as the BBC’s Sherlock. ^_^
Thanks for the recommendations!!! :)
Fun! I’ve never read Sherlock Holmes, but love just about anything that features the characters! Good luck!
Thanks! :) I love The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, but I’m excited to see what I think of other retellings I find!
YAY! I am so excited for Classics Retold (I’m doing Mythology) and love seeing other people join. I cannot wait to see everything Sherlock Holmes ;)
Glad you joined too! :)
I love retellings of classics, especially Jane Austen retellings :) The Sherlock Holmes retelling sounds great!
I’m excited to start working on the project! :)
I picked Sherlock Holmes as well :)
Hooray! It’ll be fun seeing your posts! :)
I am so glad you joined!! I can’t wait to see what you have to say about Sherlock!!
Thanks, I’m excited for the project! :)
I’ve actually never read any SH or seen the movies. I hear it’s good though. Isn’t this challenge awesome! I’m signed up for Pride and Prejudice.
I’m excited to see what you read/watch for P&P! I recently watched The Lizzie Bennett Diaries and thought they were cute! :)
A little late in commenting here! I’m glad you are participating, I look forward to reading all the Sherlocky posts! :) I don’t know many books spin-offs/sequels, but I hope you do post on the recent BBC Sherlock TV series!
