Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


I became an avid Agatha Christie fan in high school and have been hooked ever since! I would like to reread the following ten Agatha Christie novels:

2. The Mysterious Affair at Styles Finished on 4/12/15
3. Curtain
8. Death on the Nile Listened to on 4/8/2015.
10. Crooked House

So, which of these Agatha Christie have you read and what did you think of it/them? Do you have a favorite Agatha Christie novel?

  1. Oh nice! These are new to me! Don't think I have ever read an Agatha Christie novel. Never came up in school.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. None of Agatha Christie's novels were required reading for any of my classes... I just loved reading mystery novels and once I read on of Dame Christie's novels I was hooked!

  2. I've only read And Then There Were None. I never got into Agatha Christie, I seem to mostly gravitate towards fantasy. i do love to read all the books from one author, though! Great list!

  3. I think I read one Agatha Christie novel but it's only a vague memory.But she's super popular and maybe I should give it another go

  4. I used to get them out the library all the time. I honestly can't remember which ones I've read though. I'm reacquainting myself with a few this year though. So far I've reread The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

  8. None of Agatha Christie's books were ever required reading for school and as I got older I kind of gravitated towards the fantasy and paranormal genres. Although if they are anything like the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series I'm sure I would love them. Nice TTT list.

  10. Oohh, I LOVED Agatha Christie's books! The only one I haven't read from your list is Easy to Kill. I must try and get my hands on it soon :D Unfortunately, once I started High School I didn't read all that much, but when I left, I became completely addicted to Agatha's books. Great list! :D

  12. I've watched so many of the Agatha Christie episodes and movies (my parents used to put them on when I was a kid, even though they were wildly inappropriate) but I've honestly never read any of the books! I keep meaning to though. Miss Marple is one of my absolute favourite literary detectives!

  13. Agatha Christie books! Such a master of mystery. I read a bunch of them in high school too. I've read And Then There Were None (classic Christie read) and Evil Under the Sun. My favorite Christie book has always been Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

  23. I had a moment in late middle school when I decided I would totally become an Agatha Christie fan just because of the sheer volume of promised excellent books. Unfortunately, I don't think I got very far with it and can't for the life of me remember my favorite, though I do recall preferring the ones with Miss Marple. Thanks for visiting my list!

  27. Super late reply for stopping by my blog! I've heard so many good things about Agatha Christie, but I've never got around to reading her work. My local used bookstore has an entire section dedicated to her. Do you have any recommendations on where to start?

    1. Depends on what you like!! There are plenty of short stories written by Agatha Christie that make for a great start... Ir you can begin with reading a novel with either Miss Marple, a nice elderly woman, who helps solve mysteries or other novels featuring Hercule Poirot, Belgium Detective, solving crimes.

      I really enjoyed reading And Then There Were None. You may wish to begin there!

  28. I am a huge Christie fan. I watched the Hercule Poirot series on Masterpiece and knew I had to read her books. I started with some Poirot's short stories and loved those. Then I listened to And Then There Were None and loved it and am know obsessed and listening to Crooked House. Hope you get to reread all these.

    1. I like watching the movie version of Agatha Christie's novels too... I'd like to re-watch Murder on the Orient Express again. It was a good one. Happy reading and thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
