  1. I re-read The Murder of Roger Ackroyd in May. I was concerned that I wouldn’t enjoy it as much the 2nd time but it was actually fun to see how cleverly written it is.
    The Once and Future King is one of my favorite classics! It’s very quirky, which I like. πŸ™‚

    • I need to reread every single Agatha Christie novel I’ve read so far. I want to learn her tricks. She is like a magician. The first time, it’s dazzling but I want to know how the magician performs his tricks. The narrative style of The Once and Future King is very unique – very conversational.
