Introducing the Agatha Christie Book Club

Do you like murder mysteries? Do you enjoy books that keep you up all night and keep you guessing until the very last page?  Then I have some great news for you! :)

I’ve been a big Christie fan for about 6 years now and I’ve read almost 30 books written by her but the only thing that bothers me is that none of my friends like this genre or Christie in particular. Now that I have a blog, I meet tens and hundreds of book bloggers from all around the world and I’ve met several fellow Christie fans throughout my “blogging career”. Then came the idea: why couldn’t we join forces and create a club where we can obsess about/discuss our favourite books by the Queen of Crime? And this is how The Agatha Christie Book Club has started, only a few weeks ago.

Co-hosted by me and Anjana, the aim of this book club is to read one Agatha Christie book per month, in order of the original publication date. We will come together at the end of each month for an online “tea party” to discuss our current read and share our opinion before we pick up the next book in line.

Would you like to join us on a quest to discover the very best of British crime fiction and read all the masterpieces written by the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie? Just click here to read all the details and sign up. As simple as that. :)

We’re also on Twitter! Members of the book club can tweet their book club related updates via the hashtag #ACBC. Everyone of every age, nationality, whether book blogger or not is welcome. See you soon?

  1. Oh my gosh! I have been reading Agatha Christie since I was in middle school. I have always wanted to read her books in order too. This is an absolutely wonderful idea. :)

      I know, right? :D I had this idea a few years ago that
      a, I should start reading her books from the very beginning
      b, I’d like to collect all her novels
      So yeah. That’s pretty much where I got the idea for the book club :D

    I so wish that I had the time to join!! But I am already in two book clubs so those two books a month plus my review books don’t leave a whole lot of free reading time!

      Aw, I know! I thought you or Kimba might want to join us but I know how hard it is when you have a gazillion things to do – I’m in the same boat, too. (That’s why we’re reading 1 book/month only :D) xxx

  4. In all of my reading adventures, I have never read Agatha Christie. So I think I will try. We shall see what I think =)

    I do love that you are starting from the beginning. I feel like that is the most appropriate way to approach reading through an author! I’m excited!

      Agreed! :) I’ve read many of her books but I think it’d be best to start from the very beginning and see how she progressed throughout the years :)

      That’s sooo cool!! I’m happy to have you on the team! :D And you’ll LOVE ATTWN – that’s my favourite Agatha Christie book ever. It’s just brilliant.

  6. Ahh, what a shame, but I just gave several books away, because it’s not my cup of tea (at least Agatha Christie, I do like murder mysteries) Have fun ^^
