Book review: Cat Among The Pigeons by Agatha Christie

Cat Among the Pigeons by Agatha Christie is a detective fiction by Agatha Christie, has 297 pages and was first published on 2 November 1959.

img_1814Summary:

The Story is set at an English school for girls called Meadowbank in the near of London, in which one night, suddenly a teacher gets murdered. The school is thrown into chaos when the murderer strikes again. Fortunately, a student, Julia Upjohn finds the murderers motif and calls for the famous detective,Hercules Poirot’s help.

My opinions:

This was my first time reading anything by Agatha Christie or a crime/detective novel in particular and I really liked it. I especially liked the very detailed writing style and the many interesting and mysterious characters. The plot is really interesting and gripping as well, but the story develops itself quite slowly, which gives the reader the chance to try to piece the clues left throughout the book together and to try to solve the mystery as following along with the story. I also enjoyed how the book didn’t start off a mystery, but worked on building up the cast of characters first. The only thing that bothered me, was the fact that at some parts the story went on too slowly and with too many unnecessary details.

My rating: 4,5/5

I would recommend it if: you are looking for a quick book to read and if you enjoy mysteries.

 

Anne of Green gables

Hi guys, how are you all doing? Last week I ordered this gorgeus book series from bookdepository. It was the first time I ordered books from the Internet and I really loved it. On bookdepository.com the shipping is free and quite fast and with each delivery, they send you a cute color-in bookmark!

So, if you have been reading my blog posts for quite a while, you might have noticed that I really love this series and am obsessed with Anne Shirley! I am now really happy that I finally own the whole series and I can’t waiting to read them all!

Movie Review!

Hi Guys, sorry for not posting  anything for a while. A few days ago, I watched the movies the Giver and the fault in our stars. So, now here is a review and my opinions on these movies.

The giver:

 I found this book at a bargain store and thought I’d give it a try. So, I read in one go because the plot was really interesting, I loved the writing style and it was an all-in all fabulous read!  A while later I found out that this book has a movie and that Meryl Streep and Taylor Swift Starr in it, so I decided to watch it, but I didn’t have any high expectations from it because I have had read a lot of negative reviews and comments about this movie. After I watched this movie, I was really surprised because I really liked the movie and I think that it has been made quite well, compared to other movie adaptions from books.

The fault in our stars:

I think this book is really over-hyped. I really liked the plot and characters, but the writing style isn’t really mine. At first  I tought that I would not like the movie either, but I actually really enjoyed it!

what are your opinions on these movies?

March wrap-up

Hello and thank you so much for visiting my little bookish corner in the Ínternet!

This is my first post in this blog and here I am going to show you the books I read in this beautifull month:

  1. First of all I read Anne of green gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

20160328_183618At Primary School all my classmates read this series and loved it, but I never read them because the series contains of eight parts and I did not think I would like the story. However, I bought a set of classic books and Anne of green gables was one of them. I fell instantly inlove with the cover and tought I should give it a try afterall! So I read it and this book really became one of my alltime favorite books! Anne Shirley is such a lovely character, I can relate to her really much because she is such a daydreamer and dreams of being an english teacher as much as I do!

After  I finished this book, I wrote-off all my favorite quotes, created Anne Shirley inspired bookmarks and also read the Sequel Anne of Avonlea which was also really lovely.

2. Afterwards I read Pippi Longstockings(for the first time)!!! I never tought I would like this book, but I actually quite liked it. It is not my favorite book but I really loved the writing style and illustrations inside the book.
3. My last read this month was ,,A handfull of stars,, by Rafik Shami. I had to read this book for school and really liked it. I would recommend it to anyone. It is about a boy who lives in Syria and dreams of being a Journalist. This book is basically his diarybook where he writes about his life and ideas againt war and the political Situation in Syria in around 1950.
What do you think about these books? Have you read any of them? Plese let me know in the comments section!
