Hey there, bibliophiles!
You probably noticed that I didn’t post anything for about a week and a half or so. The first two weeks of school were just really overwhelming and I had quite a lot of projects to do and quizzes to study for, so I had to take a little time away. But things are starting to go back to a manageable level school-wise, so I’m back. For now. And hey, three-day weekend!
Anyway, I went through some of my tags that I’ve been wanting to do, and I found this one! Enola Holmes was absolutely a series that shaped my childhood, and even though I found the Netflix movie to be a bit of a disappointment, I think we can all agree that Millie Bobby Brown is phenomenal.
This tag was created by Cielo @ Bellerose Reads, and that’s where I originally found it as well. 🙂

Let’s begin, shall we?
🌹THE ENOLA HOLMES BOOK TAG 🌹
ENOLA HOLMES: An independent and smart female protagonist
Alosa Kalligan from Daughter of the Pirate King was my first thought–strong-willed, independent, and the captain of a pirate ship at just 17. Gotta love Alosa.
SHERLOCK HOLMES: Your favorite mystery/thriller book
I don’t read much mystery, but Grown was such a raw and powerful book! Monday’s Not Coming was incredible too…I’ve only read three of her books, but Tiffany D. Jackson is definitely a master of the YA mystery genre.
EUDORIA HOLMES: A character that defies the rules of their society
Rory Thorne from How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse is the perfect example for this prompt–not just defying the royal family by taking control of her situation and starting a revolution, but…I mean, eventually becoming a space pirate is the ultimate defiant move when you’re a princess, I would think.
MYCROFT HOLMES: The most annoying character you know
It’s been a while since I’ve read The Hunger Games, but I haaaaaaaaaaated Gale. The whole “catnip” nickname was just an instant dealbreaker…[vomits]
LORD TEWKSBURY: A character you want to protect at all costs
Zofia from The Gilded Wolves is just too good for this world. And now that I’ve read book 2…[cries]
INSPECTOR LESTRADE: A loyal side character
Sanjeet from Raybearer always stayed by Tarisai’s side, and he was the PERFECT side character! I think he was my favorite character in the whole book, honestly…
MISS HARRISON: A book that aged like milk
Whew, this one’s a throwback for me…
The Familiars was my favorite series for a while when I was in elementary school, but even when it was still coming out, I remember being super disappointed by the fourth book. (Unnecessary, didn’t like the style of the illustrations, cliffhanger that was never resolved…) I’ll still always have a soft spot for this series, but I remember outwardly cringing at the writing the last time I flipped through it…
LINTHORN: A character you hated from the very beginning
This one was a major disappointment…
Pru from Instant Karma bothered me almost from the get-go…she was just so demanding and bratty. (And hey, I get being mad for getting a C on a group project, but…would it really kill you to settle for a B?)
EDITH: Your favorite book with Black rep
It was super hard to pick just one book for this prompt, but I read An Unkindness of Ghosts last summer, and it blew me away!
- Erin @ Reading on a Star
- Cherelle @ A Bolt out of the Book
- Phoenix @ Books with Wings
- Allison @ Just a Bookworm
- Riddhi @ Whispering Stories
- Ahaana @ Windows to Worlds
- Anyone else who wants to participate! If you see this post, consider yourself tagged! (And if I tagged you and you haven’t read/watched Enola Holmes or you didn’t like it, my bad!)
That’s it for this book tag! Have a wonderful rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!
