Kals says...
Nothing really beats a good old Agatha Christie mystery or an Arthur Conan Doyle masterpiece. I've loved Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes all my life and I doubt we'll find a detective surpassing the unexpected genius of Miss Marple, the exemplary 'little grey cells' of the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and of course, the master himself - Sherlock Holmes.

You will have to read a minimum of 6 books in total: two Miss Marple mysteries, two Sherlock Holmes mysteries and two Hercule Poirot mysteries.

My reading list:

Miss Marple


A Murder is Announced

Short Stories collection


Murder on the Orient Express - my review

==end result==
got a one read, however, challenge not completed


  1. Have fun with this wonderful challenge. :)

  2. I love the extras you've picked =) Hope you enjoy the challenge!

  3. What a great challenge. I read a lot of Agatha Christie in middle-school, and most of them happened to be Hercule Poirot mysteries. Oddly enough, never read the Murder on the Orient Express, as classic as it is.

  4. I can't wait to do this challenge! It's been years since I've read anything by these authors. I can't wait for the Murder Mystery in May! :)

  5. Yes, yes, yes -- love it! Looking forward to the dinner, too.
