These books won't be the usual YA fiction books that I read because the books in that genre that I'm desperate to own haven't come out yet and the ones I do want to read, I have no desire to own in case they turn out to be terrible. Surprisingly, the majority of them are nonfiction books, a genre that I've basically ignored until I got to college. I discovered that nonfiction can be a terrific genre as long as you make sure to only read books on a subject that really interests you. Not surprisingly, most of these books in some way or another have to deal with Agatha Christie, an author I've loved for the majority of my life.
Since I was a genius and left my camera in my dorm room, and because I have no desire to mess with the camera on my phone, I don't have a picture of the collective haul. You'll just have to trust that I actually have these books, which shouldn't be hard since I've already read and rated most of these on Goodreads. Without further ado, here are the books I was given for Christmas
- The Making of the African Queen or How I went to Africa with Bogart, Bacall and Huston and almost lost my mind by Katharine Hepburn
- The Grand Tour: Around the World with the Queen of Mystery Edited by Mathew Prichard (her grandson)
- Agatha Christie: An Autobiography
- Absent in the Spring and other novels by Mary Westmacott (aka Agatha Christie)
- Poirot and Me by David Suchet
That's all the books that I received for Christmas this year and if you'd like to know more about what I thought of these books, don't forget to return here later in the year or visit my Goodreads page. Best Wishes everyone.
