By  | 

Attention, young adult book fans! We have a new book for you to check out. While you’re waiting for the next Divergent novel to hit the stands, we want to introduce you to The Clockwork Scarab: A Stoker & Holmes Novel.

Stoker & Holmes

Stoker & Holmes

From best-selling author Colleen Gleason, The Clockwork Scarab brings us a series inspired by classic stories like Sherlock Holmes and Dracula, so you know there will definitely be some good mysteries to solve in this series. TCS follows the main characters, Evaline Stoker, the sister of Bram, and Mina Holmes, the niece of Sherlock, as they investigate the disappearance of two society girls. They’ll have to play detectives in order to solve this crime. Sounds intense!

So, in honor of the book’s release, we wanted to put together a list of our favorite mystery books that have been turned into movies! Check out five of our faves and let us know if you agree in the comments below!

1. Nancy Drew
Emma Roberts was cast as our favorite teen detective
in the 2007 big-screen version of Nancy Drew.


2. Harry Potter
Was there any mystery that Harry, Ron, and Hermione couldn’t solve?
It just required a little magic.


3. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
We’re so glad this book was made into a movie because now we get to see Clary search for her mother (with the help of a hot Shadowhunter) played out on the big screen!


4. The Silence of the Lambs
This movie is terrifying — but it’s still a cult classic today!


5. Shutter Island
Leonardo DiCaprio trying to solve a mystery? Sign us up any day!


Now that you’re in a mystery mood, be sure to pick up a copy of The Clockwork Scarab!  Maybe you’ll see this series on the big screen one day, too!
