Agatha Christie’s Lord Edgware Dies is the first in the #FemmeMarchFest challenge that I’m doing for March. This is in honor of International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8. As part of this challenge, I will be reading only books written by female authors, with one exception (When Opposites Meet by Sachin Garg).
2017 has been a great year for me in terms of reading. I read a couple of new authors in addition to a few classics, and also found some surprisingly good books that affected me like no other. So as the year comes to an end, I decided to compile a list of the 10 best books that I read this year. I’ve read 91 books so far and will finish the year at 93 (or 94). 🙂
I am a HUGE Agatha Christie fan. I don’t have to say it but her style of writing is unparalleled. There has been no one in history so far who has been able to build mysteries and solve them as well as she has been able to. And to think that she did this with an array of eccentric detectives? It’s something that places her out of reach of any limit. Indeed, she is as limitless as limitless can get.
Agatha Christie, the Queen of crime thrillers, was an enigma unto herself, one that the world has been enamored with long after she passed from it. In every book she wrote, every story she built, she made sure she put her everything in those words. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is one such story, the end of which leaves the reader reeling with shock.
