Shelf Candy! (19)

Thanks to Five Alarm Books for hosting Shelf Candy Saturday!

My Saturdays are way more fun with some pretty Shelf Candy to look at! Can't help it! I see it? I like it? I buy it!

It's a problem. (well, only for my bank account!)

My Shelf Candy for this week is:

The Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series by Laurie R. King

I see this series everywhere and have been meaning to pick it up. I like Sherlock Holmes and this series is supposed to be very good.

I usually stumble by the first book, set out on the table near the paperback mystery section. And I always want to pick it up.

What is it about the covers? The bright tones, the stained glass window theme, the mystery held within? All of the above!

Intrigue I say!

What do you think of these covers? Would you pick them up?


  1. These are fantastic. True artistry. My favorite is A Letter of Mary. These books look interesting. I should give them a try for Mystery Monday. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are not books I would usually pick up but they are very unique and colorful. I like the design and how the colors catch your eye. Very nice choice!

  3. wow, those look great! I love how you can tell they all go together. Great pick and thanks for stopping by my Shelf Candy!

  4. Awesome covers! I love how they look like stained glass - I haven't seen any other book look like that :) I love the Beekeepers Apprentice in particular.

    Thanks for stopping by Project to be Read :)

  5. Hmm interesting. I havent heard of these! Thanks for sharing!

    My IMM:

  6. I LOVE these covers--I'm sad they only did these for the first 4. I've read up to Book 5, O Jerusalem. I just love Russell and Holmes!

  7. yes this series has great covers. i only read the first book but i liked it. it seems like a series that you would really enjoy.
