Friday Reads 22nd April 2016

Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice, the idea is to grab a book, turn to page 56 (or 56% in an e-book) and find any sentence (no spoilers!) and then post it. Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are currently reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence and impressions about the book.

Clare:

Hickory Dickory Dock (Hercule Poirot, #30)The Clocks (Hercule Poirot, #34)Lost Among the Living
My Poirot-a-thon is continuing and I am down to the last two that I own now. I have just started reading Hickory Dickory Dock and I am enjoying it so far. I seem to read Christie quite fast so I have no doubt I will also be finishing The Clocks this weekend as well! And then if I have time I am planning to read Lost Among the Living which I have the highest hopes for. I've been excited about this book for so long!

Book Beginning:
"By the time we left Calais, I thought perhaps I hated Dottie Forsyth." - Lost Among the Living

Friday 56:
""You are very kind. And please, mademoiselle, be careful."
"Careful? Careful of what?"
"I wish I knew," said Hercule Poirot. 
He was still worried." - Hickory Dickory Dock

I love that first line of Lost Among the Living. From that sentence alone I already have an idea of the main character and Dottie. And I am looking forward to finding out what "mademoiselle" has to be so careful about!


You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading.

This is the second 56 about Christie. I need to go back and read some again:)

GREAT excerpts! I love the idea of a Poirot-a-thon and may attempt one myself.
My Friday post features A NEW DAWN IN DEER ISLE.

I've seen Agatha Christie twice today; reminds me that I need to read more of her books.

I just received a gift, an Agatha Christie book also from the Poirot series. :-) I like the sounds of the book you used though. I really liked the beginning! Happy weekend!

I definitely like the beginning of Lost Among the Living - my sister has been after me for the last couple of weeks to read a book by Ms. St. James. I need to read more Agatha Christie....

I've only read one Agatha Christie book and I really should pick up more. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

Clare Stone said...

Reading Poirot has been such a great week, I'm sorry it had to end!

Clare Stone said...

Everyone seems to be in a Christie mood at the moment - not sure what it is but you definitely should re-read some!

Clare Stone said...

If I were a more organised person I might have organised a Poirot-a-thon for people to take part in!

Clare Stone said...

Definitely seems to be popular at the moment!

Clare Stone said...

It is a great beginning! Which Agatha Christie book did you receive?

Clare Stone said...

I definitely recommend Simone St. James although this was not my favourite of hers. And definitely yes to the Agatha Christie!

Clare Stone said...

You definitely should, I've enjoyed all the Christie I've read so far!

Lauren Stoolfire said...

Lost Among the Living sounds excellent - adding it to my tbr!
Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).

Clare Stone said...

Simone St. James books are always excellent! Hope you enjoy it!
