Shelf Control 13

Tuesday, 23 January 2018
This is a weekly feature that I will be posting on a Tuesday, where I will be spotlighting a book that I have on my shelves that I haven't read. This is a great idea for a weekly post, as I have loads of unread books, and I find it really interesting to read why others have purchased and want to read certain books!! This is hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.

This week's book:
Title: The Mammoth Book of Dickensian Whodunnits
Author: Mike Ashley
Published: 2007
Pages: 496

Synopsis: Charles Dickens created some of the most memorable characters in English literature and was also a larger-than-life individual himself, a champion of the underdog. The anthology presents a mix of specially commissioned new stories and lesser known reprints, by writers such as Hilary Bonner, Anne Perry, Charles Todd, Kate Ellis, Alanna Knight, Martin Edwards and Gillian Linscott. Many of the stories feature one or more of Dickens's characters, as a sleuth or as the victim of crime. Others are set in Dickens's real life with him investigating a crime or people closely associated with him, such as Wilkie Collins, Elizabeth Gaskell or Hablot Browne ? including during his tours of America. Oliver Twist and the Artful Dodger meet up again in later years to solve an age-old crime. Just what became of the convict that frightened young Pip in Great Expectations? Was he really guilty, or framed? Inspector Bucket from Bleak House finds himself up against the greatest criminal mind of his day. -Goodreads
How/When I Got It:
I bought this novel on my Kindle about 4 years ago during a Kindle sale!

Why I Want To Read It:
I love Dickens' novels and I love mystery novels so it seemed like a no-brainer. But its been so long since I bought it and I always forget its there!!

Happy reading!!
