Agatha Christie Reading Challenge Update

Years ago I read as many of Agatha Christie’s books that I could find. Now I’m taking part in the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge and reading (or re-reading) her books. Listed below are the books I’ve read so far. I’ve reviewed them all except for A Pocketful of Rye and The Seven Dials Mystery

  1. The Mysterious Affair at Styles €“ 1920
  2. The Seven Dials Mystery €“ 1929
  3. Peril at End House €“ 1932
  4. Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? €“ 1934
  5. Hercule Poirot’s Christmas – 1938
  6. The Body in the Library €“ 1942
  7. The Hollow – 1946
  8. Crooked House €“ 1949
  9. A Pocketful of Rye €“ 1953
  10. Dead Man’s Folly €“ 1956

  12. The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side– 1962
  13. By the Pricking of My Thumbs – 1968
  14. Passenger to Frankfurt – 1970

I’ve also read two books of her short stories:

  1. The Thirteen Problems (short stories) – 1933

I’m currently reading Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days by Jared Cade and planning to read some of her earlier books next:

  • Murder on the Orient Express – 1934
  • The ABC Murders – 1936
  • Death on the Nile – 1937
  • Appointment with Death – 1938

  1. Margaret – You’ve read an impressive number of Christie’s books! You’ve got some good ones coming up on your list, too : ). Death on the Nile is one of my favorites.


  2. I’ve been on a little Agatha hiatus, for no reason that I can come up with. I guess there have just been a lot of other books I’ve been reading these days. I do miss her though.


  3. Congratulations! You are making great progress on the challenge. I’m congratulating myself at the same time as we are at the same place. I just finished Murder On the Orient Express (review in a few days) and really liked it. It’s the best one I’ve read so far. I look forward to reading of your reaction.
