One of the habits I worked on developing in 2020 was reading a book every month.
Here are the books I read in 2020.

The Adventure of the Clapham Cook
by Agatha Christie

The Adventure of the Clapham Cook
GoodReads

This was my first time reading a short short by Agatha Christie. I got to say it had me wanting for more. I still can’t believe things happened the way it did and of course it was a full circle.

The Mystery of Three Quarters
(New Hercule Poirot Mysteries #3)
by Sophie Hannah 

The Mystery of Three Quarters (New Hercule Poirot Mysteries, #3)
GoodReads

So this was a book I read by accident. I didn’t pay attention to the author I just knew that I want to read more of Hercule Poirot. And that I did! It was so well written and so close to the way Agatha Christie writes that I didn’t even notice the difference until I wrote this review. I will say that M.Poirot got introduce in the very beginning and he was very involved as things unfolded. Perhaps that was the only difference but nevertheless it keeps you hooked until the very end!

Cards on the Table (Hercule Poirot, #15)
GoodReads

My goodness! This had me guessing left and right. Man, human nature really is a thing. The way people act and what they say can be completely conflicting with each other. I was also attempting at guessing something other than the murder. You’ll have to read it to find out what I mean.

Hahahahah, this was a great read. Of course short stories always have me craving more. But it was an amazing read.

Sad Cypress
(Hercule Poirot #22)
by Agatha Christie

Sad Cypress (Hercule Poirot, #22)
GoodReads

As the title implied. This one made me quite sad throughout the whole thing. I found myself rooting for certain people. Looking at the clues again to prove their innocence.

Murder is Easy
(Superintendent Battle #4)
by Agatha Christie

Murder is Easy
GoodReads

This was my second time reading a Superintendent Battle book, the first one being Towards Zero. I kept waiting for him to show up. Perhaps that’s why it took me a bit longer to read through this. I have to say that it was a great read with fantastic lines and had me guessing until the end.

The Mystery of the Blue Train
(Hercule Poirot #6)
by Agatha Christie

The Mystery of the Blue Train (Hercule Poirot, #6)
GoodReads

I love this one! Of course as always the beginning felt out of place, but it’s always a full circle at the end! Pay attention to those mundane little details.

and I hope you’ll enjoy yourself,
but things are seldom what they seem in this life.”

Death on the Nile
(Hercule Poirot #17)
by Agatha Christie

Death on the Nile (Hercule Poirot, #17)
GoodReads

As always I didn’t see this coming. I saw nothing coming. I was too wrapped up in everyone’s behavior that I couldn’t see the truth of it all.

The Case of the Middle-Aged Wife:
A Short Story (Parker Pyne)
by Agatha Christie

The Case of the Middle-Aged Wife: A Short Story (Parker Pyne)
GoodReads

This was a really fun read. It was my first Parker Pyne book. I know nothing of him and I still feel like I know nothing after reading this short but now I have a hunger to know more about him.

Death by Drowning:
A Short Story (Miss Marple)
by Agatha Christie

Death by Drowning: A Short Story (Miss Marple)
GoodReads

Ugh, some people are just too sweet. Love can be very bitter sometimes. But then is it still love, perhaps it’s now something else entirely
Favorite Line

The Body in the Library
(Miss Marple #3)
by Agatha Christie

The Body in the Library (Miss Marple, #3)
GoodReads

I finally finished this book after starting it in August of 2019. It took me a year to read because I was so use to Hercules Poirot pacing and story telling that I couldn’t conform at first but after reading Death by Drowning I was ready to finish reading this novel. I didn’t regret it. However some of the characters were still shrouding in mystery after the murder was solved.

And Then There Were None
by Agatha Christie

GoodReads

Amazing. It had everything, suspense, humor, love. I never would have guessed.

I have always loved a good mystery and Agatha Christie has always been the best to read. As you can tell from my list I’m more of a Hercule Poirot fan but this year I tried out some of her other series, Miss Marple and Superintendent Battle. I love how some of the characters from the different series will meet in one book such as, Cards on the Table. I haven’t been able to figure out the murderer in any of them yet. But I do love a mystery that can keep you guessing until the very end.
