Goodreads Challenge: 2020

My 2020 Reading Challenge is in 2 parts this year: Christie 100 and other novels so my brain doesn’t fall out from all the murder mystery.

I had originally set my Goodreads challenge at 50 books across the year, however since setting myself an Agatha Christie reading challenge of 66 books, I have adjusted my Goodreads challenge to something reasonable baring that in mind.

Read about my Christie 100 challenge here:

The Secret of Chimneys
liked it
A story of political and international intrigue. Thoroughly entertaining partly because of cliches and the wit of the characters. Lord Caterham had some excellent one-liners. Occasionally found it difficult to follow as there were so man…

The Murder on the Links
really liked it
Poirot’s second case, also accompanied by his liability of a friend: the narrator, Hastings. Very clever use of characters and a shocking twist at the end. And, it’s always fun to have the threat of the guillotine hanging over the murderer.

The Mysterious Affair at Styles
liked it
Easy to see why this is such a popular Poirot. Very clever, very quotable (use the little grey cells). Full on science from Christie clearly deploying her poison dispenser knowledge. Brilliant mystery.

One of Us Is Next
it was amazing
INCREDIBLE. The ode to Maeve that un-sung side character of book 1 deserved. More likeable and ship-able characters! Thought I’d guessed the ending (only managed it a chapter before) but holy crap what happened amplified my theory x1000….
