I have been a Nancy Drew reader since I was seven years old, and have only recently completed my classic Nancy Drew collection. Many of us fondly remember reading the classic yellow hard-backed books and will always treasure her inspiring adventures that she would take us along on. For a few of us who prefer a more modern girl with technology and serious criminals and more adventures, there are other book series available to enjoy.
This year, Simon & Schuster released a new series for our favorite detective, called the Nancy Drew Diaries. Check them out here!
This weekend I plan on heading over to the bookstore to pick the two titles they have available: Curse of the Atlantic Star and Strangers on a Train. (The next book, Mystery of the Midnight Rider will come out on May 7th, just before we release Ghost of Thornton Hall). I’m already impressed by how many pages these books boast: almost 200 pages! (More than some classic yellow-backs!) They come in paperback, hardcover, and eBook as well.
