I was tagged by BelleRoseReads to do her Enola Holmes book tag and I can’t wait! I saw this film not long after it came out and I really enjoyed it so I am super excited to give this tag a try.


  1. List the rules and the prompts of the tag in your post
  2. Thank the person who tagged you and pingback to their post
  3. Give credits to the creator of the tag, Bellerose Reads, and pingback to her post.

Enola Holmes – An independent and smart female protagonist

Phryne Fisher – Phryne Fisher series by Kerry Greenwood
I love Phryne. Everything that she does goes against society’s demands and expectations. She is a modern day woman in an old-fashioned world and she goes against the grain to find out her murderers and criminals.

Sherlock Holmes – You’re favorite mystery/thriller book

Daughters of Night by Laura Shepherd-Robinson
A recent read of mine that I got approved from Netgalley. This book exceeded by expectations I had no idea where it was going and it was the best feeling. I was so engaged in this story and physically couldn’t put it down! I needed to know the answers!

Eudoria Holmes – A character that defies the rules of their society

Voleta – The Books of Babel Quartet by Josiah Bancroft
Voleta, especially in Book 3, defies the rules of the ringdom and the unwritten rules of that ringdom’s society. I loved her chapters where we watch her be carefree and be herself and how fun it was to see people’s shock to her actions. She is such a carefree soul.

Mycroft Holmes – The most annoying character you know

Sky Hawkins – Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst
I couldn’t stand this character. My biggest struggle was the author made her a self-aware character. She knew she was selfish etc. but did nothing to change. Liking knowing was enough for her but it was so annoying! I couldn’t connect with her whatsoever she was just a spoilt brat.

Lord Tewksbury – A character you want to protect at all costs

Edward and Alphonse Elric – Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa
I love these boys with my whole heart! I just want them to be happy. They have gone through so much!

Inspector Lestrade – A loyal side character

Lan – Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan
I would want Lan by side through life. He is such a loyal man (baring in mind I have only read the first two books). I love his loyalty to Moiraine and the task at hand.

Miss Harrison – A book that aged like milk

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch
Now you may love this series. I know it’s still going on but this book came out in 2011 and the writing about race and women feels so gross and outdated. I would like to think that nowadays we have moved on from sweeping stereotypes and over-sexualization of characters! I would have enjoyed the story more if we weren’t in Peter’s head.

Linthorn – A book or character you hated from the very beginning

Harry Dresden – The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
Now I don’t hate Dresden, but I did find him to be annoying. I didn’t like his whole gentlemanly façade it felt outdated and his comments about women made me uncomfortable! I didn’t continue the series as I didn’t want to spend more time with him as a main character. I would probably have enjoyed the book more if it was in a different perspective.

Edith – Your favorite book with Black rep

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
I really enjoyed this book and I really enjoyed the characters in this story. They were so varied and so much fun!
