This one I am on the fence about. It is somewhere between a So-so and a pick. The beginning was so slow. The murder doesn't take place until the halfway point. It was hard to get into the story. I stuck with it because it was a book for #LMPBC I didn't feel any remorse for the victim and most of characters I didn't care for. 3.5 ⭐
I am such a huge mystery fan, so I can‘t believe that I have never read Agatha Christie. This is my first one 😁
Given that this was copyrighted in 1937, wow. I'm excited to finish watching the movie, also. Ensemble cast, and twisty. A little annoying that it was impossible to predict without other information not supplied until the end of the book, coupled with the fact that while poirot was the protagonist, even his own revelations were seldom revealed. 7/10.
Death on the Nile is on Hulu. I wanted to see it in theaters but just didn‘t get to it.
I‘m already annoyed with the beginning. I‘m hoping it gets better and stays closer to the story! And I love Gal Gadot 💚
Another fun murder mystery from the Grand Dame Agatha Christie. I wasn't certain who-dun-it, but I had my suspicions and I was correct. If I learned anything from trying The Mysterious Affair at Styles on audio, it is that I need to actually read these books to help keep the people straight. Sure, I needed a cheat sheet early on to help me remember who each person was in relation to the others, but it all came together for me ⬇️
Coffee, daffodils freshly cut from my own garden, and an Agatha Christie. Perfect evening at home😍
This was a reread for me. I‘m glad I found something I could focus on to distract me as I‘ve been feeling depressed. I received some bad news a few days ago that has me really down, but it was good to spend some time with Poirot.
I had all the information Poirot did, yet I didn't have it figured out. This is why I am not a detective. Another brilliant mystery by the queen. As always, she keeps you guessing until the end. #bookspin for March. @TheAromaofBooks
As always very interesting to read and of course i was again like: ,,THAT PERSON DID IT!,, and when it comes to the how i have no clue but i don't even need to cause i get the killer wrong almost every time!
This brilliant murder mystery stands the test of time. Not only is it exceedingly clever, but it also has all of the juicy drama to keep the pages turning - beautiful people, an exotic location, money, love, heartbreak, betrayal… I loved Hercule Poirot‘s panache and his insights on the human experience. I‘m excited to see the movie and hope it does it justice! #BOTM

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Every Christmas I ask for an Agatha Christie book via my work‘s Secret Santa, and they delivered on it this year!
I‘m always amazed at Christie‘s humor & modernity, even though this book is 85 years old. And she brings in so many characters but somehow makes it easy to keep track of everyone.
One red herring after another shows up, and I was happily shocked by the reveling of the culprit. Looking forward to seeing the movie soon!
Saw this one yesterday on my #DateNight it was so good! Try to catch it if you can :)
#FoodandLit buddy readers!
How did you like Death on the Nile? Did you predict the murderer?
For me 4/5 ⭐️ I enjoyed the mystery! I like Poirot! I wished there was more about Egypt. My murderer thoughts will be in a spoiler comment.
Thanks for reading with me!
#WeekendVibes A good book with a perfect coffee.
I like strong black turkish coffee without sugar the same as they like in Egypt. Sometimes I add some milk but not always. I don't have coffee mashine in my house I always cooked coffee in cezve.
How do you prepare your coffee? Which is your favourite?

Today lunch was Egyptian Meamar Rice. It was delicious😋 I ate it with field salad from my garden.
I also started reading #FoodandLitBuddyRead book. The picture book is from our local author and it is set in Egypt. The title is Crocodile Toothacke, story is about a crocodile who don't want to brush his teeth. Now he has a toothacke and need to visit a dentist. A book teach children how important is to brush their teath.
Poirot has retired and has decided to take a trip to #Egypt and a boat ride on the Nile. While on the boat a very rich woman is found dead in her room.
I think I‘ve seen this on TV before and remembered some parts of the conclusion otherwise I would have been very surprised.
