Mysteries to pick up if you just finished Enola Holmes

SHARE

Did you just finish Enola Holmes? Are you now finding yourself really sad that it isn’t a full series because we need 1000% more Millie Bobby Brown being badass?

Well, us too. So, here are a few of our recommendations if you loved Enola Holmes (+ one that WILL star Millie Bobby Brown in a Netflix adaptation in the future!)

 

The Companion by Katie Alender

The-Companion

Did you love the gothic mansion setting Enola grew up in? You will LOVE wandering the long, eerie halls of The Companion.

 

Harrow Lake by Kat Ellis

Harrow-Lake-COVER

Enola Holmes doesn’t quite *fit in*. And that’s sort of why we love her. So, if you loved following a peculiar heroine who somehow seems to stumble into deeper trouble every time she turns around, you’re going to love Lola in Harrow Lake. Not only that, but Lola’s mom is missing, and she had a habit of writing clues and hiding them, which reminds us of one Eudoria Holmes!

 

Warcross by Marie Lu

Warcriss

For SURE much more modern than Enola Holmes. But Emika’s urgency to hunt an extremely elusive hacker reminds us of Enola’s unrelenting detective work to track down her mother. And did we mention? Warcross is planned to come to our screens in the future too!

 

The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh

The-Beautiful

Danger lurking in the streets? Mystery? Corsets? The Beautiful and Enola Holmes have a lot in common.

 

The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu

kingdom-of-back-cover

If you ADORED the sibling relationship between Sherlock and Enola, your whole heart is going to be stolen by Nannerl and Mozart’s.

 

Tornado Brain by Cat Patrick

9781984815316

 

They Wish They Were Us by Jessica Goodman

THEY-WISH-THEY-WERE-US

And of course, if you’re looking for a good old fashioned mystery to keep your head spinning, we recommend They Wish They Were Us!

 

And make sure to add to your list…

The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe – Coming January 26, 2020!

girlsivebeen_online

Because GUESS WHAT? This book may be hitting shelves not until January, but it already has plans to be adapted for the screen…starring Millie Bobby Brown, whose badass detective days are clearly far from over!

 

One more thing: Enola Holmes IS a book series! So if you want to experience the story again, grab your copies and start reading!

Enola Holmes by Nancy Springer

9780593350539

Meet Enola Holmes, teenage girl turned detective and the younger sister to Sherlock Holmes.

When Enola Holmes, sister to the detective Sherlock Holmes, discovers her mother has disappeared, she quickly embarks on a journey to London in search of her. But nothing can prepare her for what awaits. Because when she arrives, she finds herself involved in the kidnapping of a young marquess, fleeing murderous villains, and trying to elude her shrewd older brothers–all while attempting to piece together clues to her mother’s strange disappearance. Amid all the mayhem, will Enola be able to decode the necessary clues and find her mother?

From acclaimed author Nancy Springer comes the Edgar Award nominated Enola Holmes: The Case of the Missing Marquess. Perfect for those who love mysteries and detective stories!
