5/5 ⭐️ for THE HIDDEN STAIRCASE by Carolyn Keene! Woooo for Nancy Drew! 🕵🏻♀️
I forgot how much I loved this story! I’m slowly re-reading the Nancy Drew series, and I’m falling back in love with it. She’s so witty, brave, and smart - such a great role model. I really hope that kids these days (I feel old saying that?), still read these books as they grow up. It encourages curiosity, imagination, and honesty! It’s so much fun reading through Nancy and her friends trying to solve odd mysteries, and I love how much the cops trust her 😂🙌🏼
Are you a Nancy Drew fan? Have you read it as a kid? ...
Looks like my subconscious remembered to dress for #pubday for #MiracleCreek !
@AngieKimWriter 's "stunning" debut shines in today's @washingtonpost : "'Miracle Creek' is a deeply moving story about parents and the lengths they will go for their children.... Readers will be riveted by the book’s genre-bending structure and superb pace... A stunning debut about parents, children and the unwavering hope of a better life, even when all hope seems lost.
Hi, I’m Silvie 🤗 Founder and Editor of Elijah Jean Editing.
3 Fun Facts About Me:
1) I was an immigrant. Born in Haiti and migrated here when I was three years old. Became a citizen when I was five. Back then immigration was a much smoother process.
2) In 4th grade I was the youngest semi-finalist in a Regional story-telling contest in my elementary school, PS181 in Brooklyn. I had to memorize one book word for word and retell it from memory using only my voice and words, no hand movements.
3)I know how to sketch. So much so, in 8th grade my art teacher awarded me a summer scholarship to attend Moore College of Art Young Artist Workshop summer program.

Well didn’t this book just exceed every single expectation I had?! The manipulation of time messed with my head, the depth of each character had me astounded and the ending had me reeling. Clever. So astoundingly clever. I cannot rate this book highly enough to anyone yet it can’t be described well enough to explain it properly. I was so satisfied with the ending and not a single question was left unanswered. I’m still processing this novel and think it most definitely deserves a re read.
The invitation list at the beginning of this novel really did get me through the whole thing. Even during the last chapter I needed to flick back and remind myself who that person was. This was in no way a bad thing, the intricacies of the plot and its characters demanded it and I’m still overwhelmed by Turton’s talent.
Is this on your TBR? If not: put it on there.
