This week, in between working on the outline for the new Team W book with Beatriz Williams and Karen White, I treated myself to two new books: Naomi Novik’s Uprooted and Sherry Thomas’s A Study In Scarlet Women.
Although very different, both are takes on earlier stories: Uprooted builds off previous generations of fairy tales (so many echoes of Robin McKinley!) while A Study in Scarlet Women is a new look at Sherlock Holmes, imagining Holmes as a woman in an era that wasn’t particularly hospitable towards female enterprise.
Now, I’m plunged into a research refresher for my next stand alone novel (more on that soon!).
What have you been reading this week?
