Children’s Book Sunday: the Mystery at Lilac Inn by Carolyn Keene

One of these days I'm not going to review any more Nancy Drew books, but today is not that day. Here we are again, with another Nancy Drew book, the fourth one to be precise. The Nancy Drew series is written and set in the 1950s, and I believe this one is the most 50s-esque… Continue reading Children’s Book Sunday: the Mystery at Lilac Inn by Carolyn Keene

Children’s Book Sunday: Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens

I was really excited to start this book, it's about an all girl's school in the 1930s and a murder happens. Multiple murders. That's an interesting premise for a children's book isn't it? Now, the idea was really great and honestly, from a child's perspective, the book is actually really great. That said, I'm not… Continue reading Children’s Book Sunday: Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens

Children’s Book Sunday: the Bungalow Mystery by Carolyn Keene

Will I ever stop reading the Nancy Drew series? Probably not. So here we are AGAIN with book number 3! One downside to these beautiful edition of Nancy Drew, is that they just don't explain what this book is about on the back. So here's the synopsis on Goodreads: Nancy and Helen are trapped in… Continue reading Children’s Book Sunday: the Bungalow Mystery by Carolyn Keene

Children’s Book Sunday: the Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene

As I'm European, I never ever heard of Nancy Drew. What I knew about it was that it was a children's detective series. I mean, how perfect is that?! Now the series is celebrating it's 80th (!) birthday, there are new editions out, that I thought were so cute, I bought the first one in… Continue reading Children’s Book Sunday: the Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene
