I became a fan of My Favorite Murder late in the game (mostly out of trepidation that I wouldn't be able to handle serial killers), but their combination of mystery, comedy, and friendship is perfect. This book captures all the bits of wisdom that fans of the show adore.

Three Act Tragedy (Poirot) | Agatha Christie

Pickpick

Another favorite Christie for me. The solution is chilling and diabolical, and I think quite a bit darker than most of her other books. #agathachristieclub @Bambolina_81 #booked19 #foodorbeverageoncover @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft #readharder #cozymystery @bookriot

raeintheworld I‘ve got this one on hold with Libby. I‘m working through Poirot mysteries in order. 3d
ferskner @raeintheworld me too! I read a Christie a month, in publication order. We used to have the #agathachristieclub on Litsy but I think I'm the only one still going. :) 3d
Librarybelle I‘m so far behind in the #agathachristieclub ! Maybe a year or more?? I should probably binge read to catch up...I miss reading her monthly! 3d

TheAromaofBooks Maybe we need to restart the #agathachristieclub - I would be way into that! I read all her books in published order a few years ago and would love to work through them again. 2d
ferskner @Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks YES! I'm pretty far into it so I wouldn't want to start over, but I'd love company. @batsy you in? 22h
batsy @ferskner Yes! Like you I probably wouldn't start over but I'm trying to keep going from where I left over from reading her books chronologically. I'm not sure how it would work if we're all at different books but it's fun to just keep the club going for us to find each other through the tag and read the comments and reviews :) 14h
Librarybelle @batsy @TheAromaofBooks What if we had two pieces to this? I‘m so behind that I don‘t mind starting again, and anyone who wants to join in on that piece may do so - read a book a month, with discussion at the end. For those in the middle of this, maybe just continuing where we should be under the original club. I don‘t think it would be too confusing...Littens would have the option to start from the beginning or pick up in the middle of the list. 13h
TheAromaofBooks @Librarybelle @batsy - maybe keep the original #agathachristieclub but also add a secondary tag to differentiate, like #secondround or something like that? 12h
Librarybelle I think that would work, @TheAromaofBooks ! 11h
ferskner @TheAromaofBooks @librarybelle @batsy Honestly, I wouldn't mind taking a break for y'all to get caught up. I'm also behind on where I should be, and but I remember the books well enough that I could join in on discussions at the end of the month, and I'd reread some of my favorites. I am SUPER behind on a bunch of podcasts and series, so this would give me a chance to balance that out again. 9h
ferskner @TheAromaofBooks @librarybelle @batsy I'm also a big fan of the All About Agatha podcast, where they recap and analyze all the books, so that could help me refresh my memory as well. :)
9h
batsy @TheAromaofBooks @Librarybelle I'm not sure where we last stopped as a group or where we should be right now; the last one I read following publication order was Lord Edgware Dies. @ferskner That podcast sounds great by the way, thank you for recommending! I'm going to check it out. 9h
ferskner @batsy it's really fun! They're sometimes pretty catty and I don't always agree with their favorite books (they LOVED The Man in the Brown Suit), but they do discuss the underlying racism and sexism and take into account how well the stories have aged as part of their ranking system. And I always love a ranking system! 9h
Librarybelle @batsy @TheAromaofBooks @ferskner The next one on the list for me is Peril of End House...no clue how far that is down the list from everyone else. I‘m fine with however we want to do this! 5h

This was a wonderful own voices title from Indigenous Australian authors. Despite being less than 200 pages, it covered a lot of things about how Indigenous people were treated under colonization (which we did a lot of similar stuff in Canada). But I think most importantly, it touched on missing & murdered indigenous women AND the 60s Scoop while also lifting up the female characters without pretending racism and abuse is simple to get over & past

8little_paws Yes!! This book was pretty damn good. Great choice for #readharder #ownvoices in Oceania 2w
LeeRHarry My library here in Melbourne doesn‘t have this - looks like I should put it on their radar... 2w
SassenachTheBookWizard @LeeRHarry double check searching for just the author's names! I just saw somewhere that it was given a different title in North America (which is where I live) 2w

SassenachTheBookWizard @LeeRHarry I FOUND THE ORIGINAL TITLE! Maybe your library has this title version 2w

This was very different from the tv show in a wonderful way. I feel this was much more realistic than the show.

I loved this book. So sad but a great story! I reviewed it on my blog today (www.ashsscript.com). Have you read it? What did you think?

Go Read This Book Now!!

I'm not done, (50%ish) but so far, this book is amazing. Retellings of Maori myths by authors I need to read more of.

#ReadHarder - could work for mythology or OwnVoices Oceania

This book was full of really cool ideas. Those ideas need a much better writer or a much stronger editor. The structure didn't work. Too many scenes were there for no reason. Some pivotal moments were glossed over. The supporting characters were poorly integrated. The author has a tin ear for dialogue & has difficulty mixing tones. And the denouement is aggressively stupid. The end, merely trite.

This was my self-published book for the #ReadHarder challenge and thank goodness I got it for free on the kindle because that WAS NOT A BOOK!! It was, like, half a book? The story was fairly interesting and the writing was pretty good but the book literally ended in the middle! I‘ll give specifics in a spoiler comment if you‘re interested!

bookwrm526 How do you end your book with the discovery of a murder??? This is not the season finale of a television show, people!!!! 3w
