Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge: August

Well, I made it through one book for the Read Harder challenge, three audiobooks last month and an Agatha Christie. Not bad. 

For the Read Harder challenge I read ‘Death Comes to Pemberley’ by PD James (this was the book written by someone over 65 yo). It was a slow start but once James got into mystery it really picked up and you could tell she had the upmost respect for the characters. It was lovely to get some closure on some of the characters. 

On the audiobook front I powered through Diana Gabaldon’s ‘A Breath of Snow and Ashes’ (6th Outlander book) and at over 40 hours this is no joke. I love the Outlander series so much. I am going to be so sad when fully caught up and waiting for the 9th book to be published. After my Claire and Jamie marathon I needed a change of genre so went to my beloved Agatha Christie. There was a double feature on Audible of ‘The Man in the Brown Suit’ and ‘4:50pm from Paddington’. Emilia Fox read TMITBS and everyone needs to listen to it now. It’s like Christie decided to write fan fiction about her genre. It’s funny and fresh since it’s a relatively neglected book. 4:50pm is read by Joan Hickson so it’s Miss Marple perfection. 

I’d obviously decided that I hadn’t had enough Christie lasts month and went on to read ‘Murder at the Vicarage’. Nice to read the original story’s again.
