Associates Of Sherlock Holmes by George Mann | Book Review

Today's book review is by author George Mann titled Associates of Sherlock Holmes. I do love a book that takes me on an adventure. I also really like reading about Sherlock Holmes. You may remember one of my previous books reviews, on a brilliant book called A Study In Sable, in which Sherlock Holmes made an appearance. Anyway, I was so excited when this book arrived, as soon as I read about the book and read the title, I knew I just had to read it.

George Mann is author of the Newbury and Hobbes and The Ghost series, as well as short stories. He has also edited and written Sherlock books for Titan, which include Encounters of Sherlock Holmes, More Encounters of Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: The Spirit Box. George Mann has written audio and fiction scripts for the BBC's Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes. 

Famous associates of Sherlock Holmes, including clients, colleagues and villains, tell their own stories in this brand new book which follows adventures of Sherlock Holmes. We get to read about and join Sherlock Holmes in some new adventures by George Mann which features original stories that have been brought together. 

This book starts with The River Of Silence by Lyndsay Faye, which then follows on to other original stories by various different authors. The different angle used within this book adds a fresh perspective. I think it's great that different stories are told by different characters, that have played parts in Sherlock Holmes's adventures. I find it very helpful that each author within the collection of stories, have written a short introduction. 

The book is well presented and pictures the famous door number on the front. Underneath the title on the front cover, are the authors of the original stories. I am really liking the dark green colour of the book. It automatically makes me think of mysteries and adventures, with the main picture being of a closed door. 

Associates of Sherlock Holmes is out now. I highly recommend checking this book out, especially if you are a fan of the great detective and his adventures.

My Favourite Things About Summer

The weather has been so pleasant the last few weeks. It's nice to wake up to the sun shining, birds singing and lovely warm weather. In today's blog post, I thought that I would share my favourite things about Summer. 

It's that time of year again when all of the pretty butterflies are about. I love watching them on the flowers outside and flying about.

One thing I love about summer is the beautiful summertime flowers that bloom. They really brighten up the fields and the towns. They also smell really good too.

Going out for the day.
It's so nice to go out for the day when the sun is shining and go on a bit of an adventure. I really like finding new places.

One of my all time favourite things to do. I love finding new places to have a picnic. There's nothing I like more on a day out, than to go find a good spot to have a picnic.

Going to the beach
I love going to the beach. I really like spending the day at the seaside in the sunshine, going into the arcades and having a walk on the sand, whilst watching the sea.

It always feels more like summer when the smell of BBQ's are in the air. 

Going on holiday
One of my favourite things to do during the summer holiday is go on holiday for a few days. This year I went to Somerset and had a look round Cheddar and visited Longleat.

Summer clothes.
Although I do love putting on nice cosy jumpers and boots and a scarf in the Autumn and Winter, It's nice to get out the summer clothes. Shorts, t-shirts, sandals, after wearing layers of clothing to keep warm, I do like to go out not needing a coat or a jumper.

What are your favourite things about Summer?
