Last week I finally completed my personal challenge of reading all of the original 56 Nancy Drew Mystery Stories. It was pretty fun. And yes, I am super proud of myself for sticking with it.
Nancy was a big part of my childhood. I gobbled up mysteries like no other. And even as a grown up I found comfort in Nancy’s adventures. When I had a bad day or was feeling down, I turned to Nancy. For at least a couple of hours I was able to escape.
Yes, some of the stories haven’t exactly aged well and lack continuity. But playing detective has been genuinely fun. And seeing little kids still reading these books has made my little heart flutter.
This has been a lovely journey. I’m so glad I was able to share it with all of you! ❤
Now, does that mean I’m done with Nancy? No! If I come across a Nancy Drew book I haven’t read then expect a review of it to appear around here haha.
Oh, and I’m not quite done with Mildred and the Stratemeyer Syndicate 😉
Apparently I missed my 1st Bloggiversary!!! As I was scheduling this post, I saw this notification from a few days ago:
Ha! This commitment-phobe girl has actually stuck to something. Well, 2 somethings if you count Nancy (which I do 😉 ). But these past few weeks I’ve lagged on my blog hopping. Life, ya’ll. I still make time to read books though. So there’s that.
Anyway, one year. Wow! When I first started this I really thought I would quit within a week. But being a part of this community has been one of the greatest experiences ever. Meeting all of you wonderful people, gushing about books and hating on tropes are just some of the highlights haha. I love you beautiful blogging people so much and am thankful to every one of you! ❤
