By now, you should all know the mysterious, suspenseful, quippy awesomeness that is the Charlotte Holmes series by Brittany Cavallaro.

In case you don’t, allow us to introduce you: Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes are the teenage descendants of one of the most [in]famous pairs in history—John Watson and Sherlock Holmes. Jamie has always been intrigued by Charlotte, but when they 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.

Think that sounds amazing? Well, these thrilling stories have spanned across four novels, following Jamie and Charlotte as they race across Europe, attempt to unravel the mysteries of their lives, and try to find a sense of normalcy while many someones want to see them either suffer or end up dead. The stunning conclusion, A Question of Holmesrecently hit shelves, and we can’t WAIT for you to see where this epic duo winds up…

Sherlock Holmes re-tellings are my favorite re-tellings and the ones where Sherlock is female absolutely take the cake.. 🔎 👣 👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣👣 In @skippingstones version of the Holmes stories, Holmes and Watson meet at prep school. Charlotte Holmes has gotten herself in a bit of trouble and Jamie Watson feels compelled to help her. Holmes infuriates Watson to no end, but he cannot stay away. There’s mystery, there’s teen angst, there’s romance…what more do you need? Explosions ✅ bad guys ✅✅ scorned ex’s ✅✅✅, it’s all there with a blend of family drama to keep things spicy. I’m so glad that A Question of Holmes comes out today so I can continue the madness.

It is coming up on hour 21 of the readathon and I’ve only read for 11 of those hours. I was hoping to be further along but things like sleeping and eating and typing out this darn caption have been getting in the way! 😉 • Do you have a favorite food or drink you enjoy while binge reading? I actually prefer not to eat (that’s how books get greasy 😒) but I always have my water bottle close at hand. Fun fact: I can only drink water out of a bottle, I find it very awkward to drink out of a glass! 😅 ⏳ ⏳ Day 26 of January #bookreadhappyhour: The truth is out there • Though this is an X-Files quote I went a little more literal with it. I’ve come to really appreciate YA mystery and I really want to read more of it! Teenage detectives are a lot of fun. I just finished the sequel to Truly Devious and Stevie is definitely one of my favorites. I also really love the crime solving duo of Charlotte and Jamie, a modern day Sherlock and Watson. Looking forward to the next book in this series! ⏳ ⏳ That beautiful Bookstagram bookmark is by @lovelybookishmarks and you can get your own, along with many others in her Etsy shop! FOG15 gets you a discount! ⏳ ⏳ #astudyincharlotte #charlotteholmes #brittanycavallaro #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookphotography #bookphoto #bookishfeatures #humansofbookstagram #bibliophile #booklove #booknerd #bookworm #bookdragon #booklover #bookaddict #bookaholic #ilovebooks #yabooks

A QUESTION OF HOLMES, the fourth book in @skippingstones' Charlotte Holmes series, releases next Tuesday! Here's our friendly reminder that if you order through @brilliantbookstc, you can get your copy signed and personalized. ❤️ Synopsis below! 👇🏼⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson think they’re finally in the clear. They’ve left Sherringford School—and the Moriartys—behind for a pre-college summer program at Oxford University. A chance to start from scratch and explore dating for the first time, while exploring a new city with all the freedom their program provides. But when they arrive, Charlotte is immediately drawn into a new case: a series of accidents have been befalling the members of the community theater troupe in Oxford, and now, on the eve of their production of Hamlet, they’re starting all over again. What once seemed like a comedy of errors is now a race to prevent the next tragedy—before Charlotte or Jamie is the next victim.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #aquestionofholmes #brittanycavallaro #charlotteholmesseries #sherlockholmes #bookstagram #instaread #amreading #bookrecommendation #bookphoto #bookworms #bookish #igreads #bookphotography #reading #booklove #booksofinstagram #whattoread #mystery #yalit #yabook #youngadultbooks

“The two of us, we're the best kind of disaster. Apples and oranges. Well, more like apples and machetes.” ― Brittany Cavallaro, A Study in Charlotte 🗡🍎💀 The Charlotte Holmes series has become one of my favorite YA’s, and favorite Sherlock retellings. I love that it’s based as if Sherlock and Watson had been real and their great (great?) grandchildren end up in a boarding school together, forced to solve a murder (even though at first Charlotte wants nothing to do with Jamie Watson.) And I love that Cavallaro has made a modern female Holmes while staying true to the best and worst parts of the classic Sherlock. Last year I thought “The Case for Jamie” would be the last book in the series but “A Question of Holmes” is meant to come out in March and I am DEFINITELY anticipating its release. 🗡🍎💀 Have you ever solved a mystery? Tell me about it or play the predictive text game: “I solved the mystery of the….”

What are you currently reading? Are you liking it so far? 📖✨ I’m about 70ish pages from finishing the Last of August, which is the second book in the Charlotte Holmes series!! This series is a modern YA retelling of Sherlock Holmes (it’s as awesome as it sounds 😉), and I’m absolutely loving it so far!! It has all the adventure and fun mystery of the original stories, AND THERE ARE EVEN MORIARTYS!! I know they’re evil but the Moriarty from BBC’s Sherlock has made me so in love with all of them and these books are definitely delivering more Moriarty awesomeness 💁🏻‍♀️ • • • #charlotteholmes #astudyincharlotte #thelastofaugust #thecaseforjamie #brittanycavallaro #sherlockholmes #epicreads
