On a Book Roll!

Monday, November 3, 2014

Hi friends, I hope you all had a Happy Halloween.  I gave a out so much candy and I enjoyed looking at all the little kids in their cute costumes.  I even dressed up my dog Bosco as a pumpkin. I was so good, I only ate 3 pieces of candy!  

I am on a book roll right now and I finished reading this book And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie a while back.  I really loved this book and it was recommended to me by daughter.  My daughter had to read this book for school so I decided to give it a try.  


I'm really glad I decided to read this book and it's a fast moving mystery and it will keep you guessing.  If you like to read mystery books then I recommend you read this.  

I was so excited to read another book by Agatha Christie and decided to go to our local library to find another one.  I was disappointed when they did not have any of her books.  So I picked up this book called A Stitch Before Dying by Anne Canadeo.


I have managed to read this book and I really loved it.  It's a mystery about a group of women that belong to a knitting group and they all go away for the weekend.  One of the ladies in the group is giving knitting lessons at the inn where they are staying and there happens to be a murder.   It gets really interesting from there and I could not put the book down.  What I liked about this book is that it is the third book in a series and there are a few recipes at the end of the book to try.  

If you like mysteries than I would suggest this book and I'm looking forward to reading more books from this Black Sheep Knitting Mystery Series. 

I will be sharing with you soon the book that I am currently reading.  Are you reading any good books right now?

I will be sharing this post with Chantelle from the blog Mama Mummy Mum who has a book series each week called Read With Me every Monday.

  1. Thanks for the book recommendations, Julie. I'm always on the outlook for a good one. I guess you don't need to read the first two of the series that you mentioned? I will look that one up for sure.

  4. I think I have read all of Agatha Christies books and enjoyed them all. Have you read any of the Agatha Raison books, murder mysteries with a lot of humour. I like the sound of A stitch before dying I will have to look it up. :)

  7. It is incredible to me that a public library would not have any Agatha Christie books! She is like the queen of mystery books. Anyway, I also like another mystery writer, Dorothy Sayers and her Lord Peter mysteries.

  11. That is surprising about the library not having Agatha Christie! My grandmother loved her mysteries!

  12. I haven't read either of those books but they sound good. I wish I could find some time to do some reading! Maybe during the holiday breaks coming up. I have shelves full of books I haven't read yet...:) Have a lovely evening!

  14. I have to get back to reading books...I keep putting it on my list and then the books just sit in a pile. I really have to make an effort to pick one up! Glad you're enjoying yourself!

  15. Love the new series, Julie :-) I'm a big time bookworm, and series mysteries are my favorite. I read the Agatha Christie when I was in school (too many years ago to think about!), and I really enjoyed it too. I recently read the first one in the Black Sheep Knitting Shop series and liked it, but my library doesn't have anymore in the series. Glad you liked them both. I'm reading Tragic Magic by Laura Childs; it's a Scrapbooking Mystery. And I'm rereading Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen Cookie Shop mysteries. Happy reading!

  16. I love reading mysteries, as long as they're not gory. I like Agatha Christie, and Dorothy Sayers. The tea shop mysteries by Laura Childs are fun, too. I agree with Cranberry Morning; it's hard to believe your library doesn't have Agatha Christie!

  17. I just listened to this Agatha Christy book on youtube. I have been listening to them for a few weeks now and I've discover AC characters I never knew existed! Mr. Quinn for one.

  25. I love mysteries too, although I've never read Agatha Christie. I should really give her books a try, and I'm surprised your library doesn't have any of her books! I just finished reading "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton. Her books are full of twists and turns. I have 4 of her books and enjoy they all. I'm currently re-reading a lot of my own books :) Happy Reading, and thanks for the recommendation! Wendy x

  28. I haven't read either of those books before, but a recent book I have read was The Girl Who Could Fly. It's an excellent novel and I absolutely loved it!

  29. I love Agatha Christie mysteries, they are some of the favorite books I have. I started reading them after getting hooked when my local PBS Mystery played so many Poirot and Miss Marple mysteries years ago, then I had to hunt down the books. :)

  30. I used to read like crazy, but since I started blogging, I don't have time! So, it takes me forever to get through a book. Right now, I am reading two books simultaneously - both about teenagers! (non fiction, of course!)

  35. I love reading, Julie, and always have a book or two on the go! Agatha Christie was such an amazing writer. I've just had the pleasure of reading a pre-publication manuscript for an author I know which was really good. I'm just deciding what to start next :-)

  37. My daughter just asked about reading Agatha Christie books. I remember reading "Murder on the Orient Express" when I was in school and I loved it :)

    Thanks for sharing on the Art of Home-Making Mondays. I LOVE a good book!!!

  38. I can well remember reading "And Then There Were None" when I was younger & loved it. The old movie is wonderful too. Glad to be neighbors at Book Musing Monday :)

  39. Ahh, Agatha Christie. I first learned about her through the PBS Miss Marple series, read the books and have been hooked ever since. My 2 favorites are 'The Man In The Brown Suit' and 'The Secret of Chimneys'. No coincidence they're my favorites! Dorothy Sayers is indeed another good author. Her hero has a flavor of P.G. Wodehouse, but with more intelligence and wit.
