PXB #1: His Last Bow – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Sherlock Holmes for me means tea and warm blankets and stories set in cold evenings with protagonists wrapped in scarves, hats and long overcoats. This little book found on a second-hand bookshop contains short stories with no chronological order. The last story is the one that gives the title to the collection, and it’s also the epilogue: set in 1914, Sherlock, retired and living in the country with his bees, decides to take one last case. I think you can find almost all the ebooks for free on iBooks and Kindle since there is no problem with the copyright, so you have no excuse for not reading them.

Latest Obsessions (Books & TV Shows)

Hello there! Are you looking for something to read or to watch in this super hot summer (or cold winter, depending on where you are now)? Check out my latest obsessions and tell me yours in the comments! Also don’t forget to become a fan of my Facebook page Jumbleskine :)

TO READ:

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares
Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares – David Levithan & Rachel Cohn // link
I absolutely love how these two writers work together. Their voices are original and merge perfectly. I fell in love with them during my first year of high school with the book Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. That story might be about music, but this is all about books. And bookshops and book quotes, Christmas and underdogs in New York with weird families and a little notebook that contains more than they’ve never said to anyone they know.
If you love books and you want a light, cute and funny story, this is for you.

TO WATCH:

Sense8 (Netflix Original Series)
Netflix just keeps surprising me. In Perù Netflix exists (not in Italy) and they even have a one-month free trial, so I decided to do it and watch every possible tv show my schedule could allow me to watch.
Netflix describes Sense8 as “8 strangers from cities around the globe begin having experiences that defy explanation”. They can see each other, they can use the others’ abilities to save themselves from difficult situations, they can feel what the others are feeling.
Sense8 became after a few episodes one of the best shows I have ever seen. A masterpiece.

House of Cards (Netflix Original Series)
Like Game of Thrones but in the present world. Politics, sex, power, everything you need to keep you glued to your tv or laptop for hours. Francis (Frank) and Claire are a power couple that you need to see.

Other shows I’ve been watching:
– Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
– Drop Dead Diva
– Cougar Town
