Murder on the Orient Express | 5 star review

Murder on the Orient Express was the film I really wanted to watch on the plane over to our honeymoon, so it was a bit of a rush job, I ended up finishing it the day before we left for Orlando. I think this might just be my favourite Poirot book so far. I loved the collection of characters and the way the story ended up playing out. I will say which isn’t technically book related that I wasn’t massively […]

Lord Edgware Dies | 4 star review

Lord Edgware Dies is another book in the Poirot mystery series, and one that I think had not only me stumped but also Poirot and as always the ending didn’t fail to impress. It has some of the best collections of characters and I really enjoyed the way everything ended up coming together, I definitely think this was one of the more intricate plot lines. I have never had so many suspects and had each one turn out to be […]

Peril at End House | 4 star review

I hope you didn’t mind the long hiatus too much, I was away on my Honeymoon! I wasn’t as organised as I wanted to be and I ended up leaving my laptop at home, so blogging ended up being a no go whilst I was away. I thought I would kick my blog back off with one of the book reviews that was supposed to be written and scheduled to go live whilst I was away. Peril at End House […]

Black Coffee | 3 star review

Black Coffee was one of the audiobooks that I needed to finish before I read The Murder on the Orient Express – it’s one of the films on the in-flight entertainment on my Disney Honeymoon – and I have a weird compulsion that I can’t watch something without reading it first. I wasn’t aware when I started this book, that it was a novelisation of a play that Christie had written, and I think that’s why I didn’t score it […]

The Mystery of the Blue Train | 4 star review

Its been a long while since I last reviewed an Agatha Christie Poirot book and The Mystery of the Blue Train is the latest in my Poirot journey, it was another Audible listen and I am definitely enjoying listening to them as opposed to reading them. That might change as my best friend for Christmas bought me Murder on the Orient Express so I will be reading that, so I’ll actually be able to compare the two. Anyway, I think […]

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd Book Review

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is not the first Poirot book I have read check out my reviews here, here and here for the others! I had heard that if I only read one Poirot then it should be The Murder of Roger Ackroyd would be. I never really believed it and I’m not really sure I can pass judgement on that until I’ve read the others. But I have to say I enjoyed this book a lot. I don’t […]

Poirot Investigates | 4 star review

This is the third book in the Poirot series, and although they are standalone books, you should definitely check out review one and two first! This review is probably going to be a long one, there were 11 short stories in this audiobook and I don’t want to miss a single thought, so I’m gonna outline each of the stories. I will say overall opinion would have to be these were super short and there wasn’t an awful lot to […]

Murder on the Links | 4 star review

Murder on the Links is the second book in the Poirot series so go check out my book review for The Mysterious Affair at Styles first! I’m really glad I carried on with this series, I loved watching the interactions between the characters evolve and the dynamics constantly shift and change in Murder on the Links. This was definitely one where I wished Hasting’s would shut the hell up. But you can’t have everything I suppose. I think we should […]

The Mysterious Affair at Styles | 4 star review

The Mysterious Affair at Styles was my first attempt at the Agatha Christie novels and I’m so glad I started out with Poirot. I used to watch both Poirot and Miss Marple with my mum on a weekend. I used to love it and some of my best weekend memories are sat colouring watching the ‘grown-up’ TV with my mum. Plus it wins the crime genre for me because I didn’t see the ending coming, like at all! I was […]
