The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie
Rate this book
Clear rating
I think I like The Body in the Library better than the typical Marple novel, probably because Miss Marple doesn't make an appearance until late into the book. When a body appears in Colonel Bantry's library, both he and his wife are alarmed. They don ...more

Read The Ballad of Sad Cafe and Other Stories if you want to get all the feels. I have never read Carson McCullers before, but I definitely need to read more. These stories are deeply personal, and the characters feel incredibly real. Stories like "W ...more

Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie

Clear rating
Murder at the Vicarage is a quickly read murder mystery, like many of Agatha Christie's works. I read it as part of my end of year push to catch up on my 2016 reading challenge. It's not my favorite one of hers, but it was entertaining.

I didn't realize that At the Villa of Reduced Circumstances was the third installation in a series, but I would definitely go back to read the first two. Author Alexander McCall Smith's narrator, Professor von Igelfeld is pompous, self-important, and ...more

Looking for healthy interpersonal relationships? Too bad, Sharp Objects is basically bereft of them, just a bunch of really fucked up people with fucked up relationships. Prime among them is Camille Preaker, a reporter sent back to her hometown to re ...more

The Hollow by Agatha Christie takes place during an aristocratic weekend in the country, and what could be better? Of course, then Dr. Christow is killed, so that's kind of a buzzkill. Luckily for the truth, Christie's fastidious Belgian sleuth, Herc ...more

Dave Eggers
“Max had to think about these new developments. He hadn't liked getting hit by a rock--his stomach still ached from then rock Judith had thrown--but then again, when his team had used rocks on Alexander, it had caused him to surrender. Now the Bad Guys only had three soldiers left, which would make victory for Max's team more likely. So now it made perfect sense. He was wrong to ban rocks, or even animals. The key was to use all the weapons at one's disposal, but to just make sure you won when you used them.”
Dave Eggers, The Wild Things

Margaret Atwood
“How easy it is to invent a humanity, for anyone at all.”
Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale

Virginia Woolf
“It was a miserable machine, an inefficient machine, she thought, the human apparatus for painting or for feeling; it always broke down at the critical moment; heroically, one must force it on.”
Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf
“One wanted, she thought, dipping her brush deliberately, to be on a level with ordinary experience, to feel simply that's a chair, that's a table, and yet at the same time, It's a miracle, it's an ecstasy.”
Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

Neil Gaiman
“Not only are there no happy endings,' she told him, 'there aren't even any endings.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods
