Hello and welcome to Showcase Sunday. Inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren, the aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.
I’ve had another slow week (book and blogging wise) – I’m still busy with uni, that’s why I had no time to read or even blog this week. Sad times! 🙁 Anyway, I still got a lovely letter from the equally lovely Celine @ Nyx Book Reviews who managed to put a smile on my face with the hilarious photo she sent me. And I also got a book this week – it’s a book I previously ordered from The Book Depository and it’s my Agatha Christie Book club’s May read. Here’s the synopsis:
The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie’s first ever murder mystery: with impeccable timing Hercule Poirot, the renowned Belgian detective, makes his dramatic entrance on to the English crime stage.
Recently, there had been some strange goings on at Styles St Mary. Evelyn, constant companion to old Mrs Inglethorp, had stormed out of the house muttering something about ‘a lot of sharks’. And with her, something indefinable had gone from the atmosphere. Her presence had spelt security; now the air seemed rife with suspicion and impending evil. A shattered coffee cup, a splash of candle grease, a bed of begonias… all Poirot required to display his now legendary powers of detection.
Thank goodness my birthday is coming up in exactly 10 days so I’m hoping to get or buy a few more books then. Plus, I’m still waiting for some bookish goodies I ordered a while ago so hopefully I’ll have something to show you in 2 weeks’ time. 🙂 Anyway, make sure to leave a link to your own Showcase Sunday post in the linky below and/or a comment with a link to your IMM/mailbox post so that I can visit you back. (I have an exam on Monday but I promise I’ll visit everyone as soon as I can) xxx
