Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.

This week I am waiting on Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty (September 15, 2015)

Summary from GoodReads

In modern-day London, two brilliant high school students, one Sherlock Holmes and a Miss James "Mori" Moriarty, meet. A murder will bring them together. The truth very well might drive them apart.

Before they were mortal enemies, they were much more.

FACT: Someone has been murdered in London's Regent's Park. The police have no leads.

FACT: Miss James "Mori"Moriarty and Sherlock "Lock" Holmes should be hitting the books on a school night. Instead, they are out crashing a crime scene.

FACT: Lock has challenged Mori to solve the case before he does. Challenge accepted.

FACT: Despite agreeing to Lock's one rule--they must share every clue with each other--Mori is keeping secrets.

OBSERVATION: Sometimes you can't trust the people closest to you with matters of the heart. And after this case, Mori may never trust Lock again.

Why I'm Waiting

I'm not a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, I like what I know of the story.  I've never read the books, I don't like the Elementary show at all and I'm not that into Sherlock (I'm gonna get hate for this, but Benedict Cumberbatch-so not my favorite Sherlock), but I loved Robert Downy Jr.'s trilogy.  Despite the fact that I'm not really a fan of the majority of retellings, I'm intrigued by the premise of this book.  I could easily see myself hating it, but I can also see myself loving it.
