IMWAYR- 26/12/2016

Hey guys- it's time for the final reading update of 2016!* I didn't get much reading done this week, but I really don't want to miss out on the last memes of the year...


*This meme is co-hosted by unleashingreaders.com and teachmentortexts.com





 I'm currently reading "The Big Four" by Agatha Christie. I was in desperate need of some crime and mystery to keep me reading, and I stumbled upon a book store with a great selection of Christie's. This is a Poirot novel quite different from the others. In this book, Poirot seems to be chasing a gang, not just one person. Well, we'll see how it all pans out eventually....
  I finished reading "Silver in the Blood" by Jessica Day George. It's about two social debutantes from New York (1890s), who take a trip to their family home in Romania and uncover deep, dark secrets. The big question remains "will they shy away from their destiny"?. I picked this book up at a school  book fair a while ago. It isn't the type of book I would read regularly, but it isn't bad either. It really is an interesting play on fantasy and history!
 That's really all I have to report today....... not much interesting I'm afraid! I will be posting a review of Silver in the Blood, mainly because it's very different to the novels I usually read, and it might be appealing to some of my readers.
 I don't think I'll review The Big Four. Christie novels usually speak for themselves, and every time I've reviewed one, I've held back for fear of ruining the plot.

To all of you coming from unleashingreaders and/or teachmentortexts, since this is the last time you'll hear from me this year, I wish you all a Happy New Year!

  1. A very happy new year to you, too! Agatha Christie is one of my all-time standbys, whenever I need something to snap me out of a reading slump. And she wrote so prolifically that even after all these years I still discover new books and stories to enjoy!

  3. I'll definitely add this one to my book list. I'm doing a fantasy challenge in 2017 for middle grades and YA on another book blog. This may be an interesting story. Happy New Year as well.
