TOP 5:

So, I have, ever since I discovered her, had a great love of Agatha Christie. But it's been a while since I've read a book by her, so I thought I would share five of them I want to read soon!

And Then There Were None

One of Christie's most famous books, I can't believe I haven't read this one. As far as I know, it's about a group of people who have got together on a private island, and they're picked off one my one, by a mysterious murderer.

The Man in The Brown Suit

The first book in the Colonel Race series, this follows a young woman armed with a single clue to solve a mystery, while the murderer struggles to get rid of her.

Poirot Investigates

I've tried to read the Poirot mysteries in order of publication (though it's not necessary), but I seem to have skipped this one. So definitely want to read it soon, because I love Poirot.

The Secret Adversary

This is the first book about Tommy and Tuppence, and after high recommendations from my mother, I really need to read this one soon.

Murder in Mesopotamia

Because I love, love, love mysteries set in exotic places. They're the best!

Have you ever read any Agatha Christie, and if you have, which one is your favorite?



  1. I've only read her Sparkling Cyanide, and I didn't really love it. But! that was a few years ago and now that I see your post, I think I might give her another chance!

    Have a lovely, lovely day.

    1. Oh, I would definitely try another one of her books. Perhaps Murder on the Orient Express? :D It's been a while since I read it, but I really enjoyed it :)

  2. I haven't read any of her books, but if I do I'd love to read And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express. They're like the most famous Christie's books so I should be starting on the right book!

    1. I loved Murder on the Orient Express, so I could recommend that one! :)

  3. Dear Alice,
    "And Then There Were None" was the first Agatha Christie novel I read, and trust me, you are in for a treat. The beginning was slightly slow, but when it picks up, it REALLY picks up.
    I actually hadn't heard of the other books you mentioned, so thank you for that because now I can add them to my list. I've been planning on reading "Body in the Library", "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" (which has actually already been spoiled for me, but I don't mind), and "Death on the Nile".
    Might I add, I found your website sometime last year when I was looking for some book centred blogs to follow and for a while now, your blog has been one of the first websites I check in the morning! It is so delightful, and you truly have a gift in photography.
    -a musing from your friend

    1. Wow, thank you so much! That makes me so happy! :D I've read Body in the Library which was quite good, so I can recommend that one!

      Have a lovely day!
