Reading notes, week 14

Currently reading: Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie, because someone on my social media said it was the best Poirot. Read it years ago so it will probably be new-ish. –And yes: almost completely new, I’m not even sure I’ve read it before! Now 40% in and I’m still not sure if I like it,

Reading notes, week 12

March 21: Wet Nails by Shira Glassman. Bought the pdf, converted it to epub, converted the epub to mobi, sent the epub and the mobi back to Shira so she can put those up with the pdf. Sweet story that starts fluffy and fangirly and turns explicit quite suddenly. Technically it’s a ghost story but

Rereading Miss Marple

I’ve been on a Miss Marple binge, but now I’m satiated before the end. It started when I opened a random Miss Marple (8, The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side, because I couldn’t remember ever having read it) and noticed that it referred strongly to The Murder at the Vicarage. I knew I disliked

Rereading Passenger to Frankfurt

Agatha Christie, Passenger to Frankfurt I wonder why there’s a pack of dynamite on the cover of the edition we have, because while there’s a lot of explosive stuff going on (especially in interpersonal relations) there aren’t any actual explosions, at least not in the foreground. I must have finished this the first time around,
