Challenge Completed!

Yep, that's right, I've completed The Baker Street Challenge!

I chose the 7% Solution level so I had to read 7 books. Since I had already gotten interested in Laurie R. King's Sherlock Holmes/Mary Russell series I decided to read the 7 remaining books in that series.

Here's a recap of what I read (with links to my reviews) and the major themes/settings of each:
  1. Monstrous Regiment of Women - women's movement after World War I
  2. Letter of Mary - archeology and women
  3. The Moor- fraud and The Hound of the Baskervilles
  4. Oh, Jerusalem!- colonial control of Palestine
  5. Justice Hall - World War I battlefront issues and English inheritance law
  6. The Game - colonialism and espionage in India
  7. Locked Rooms - the jazz age in San Fransisco
I recapped the challenge and wrote more of my thoughts on the books over at my blog.

Thank for putting this together Ruth!

  1. Well done you! I'm having trouble finishing some of the titles I've started, but I think I'll get there before the end of the year. *crossing fingers*

  2. Congratulations, Heather, and thank you so much for sharing your wonderful reviews with all of us!
