Hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
My musing this week is ... a ramble!
Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Sherlock Holmes - these classic detectives are a staple of any mystery fan's library including my own.
They are not, however, the sleuths that populated my childhood shelf. No, that honor goes to Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden and the foursome from Enid Blyton's Adventure series.
I have many fond memories of lying on my bed engrossed in the details of The Secret of the Old Clock or The Mystery of the Missing Heiress or The Circus of Adventure. These are the stories that hooked me on the genre and while I have grown as a reader and my tastes have changed, I will never forget the enjoyment of following the clues along with my favorite childhood detectives.
No matter how old I get and how my reading preferences change, these golden oldies will always hold a special place in my heart.
