In my quest to read all of Agatha Christie’s novels in order, here’s what I’ve read so far, starting with the Poirot mysteries:
The Mysterious Affair at Styles (1920): a classic, cozy family murder
The Murder on the Links (1923): a complicated plot with twists and double-twists
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (1926): Christie’s masterpiece
The Big Four (1927): an over-the-top thriller—with an international crime ring!
The Mystery of the Blue Train (1928): the problem of ethnic stereotypes
Peril at End House (1932): a creepy setting for a clever murderer
Lord Edgeware Dies (1933) – post to come
Three Act Tragedy (1935-APA), originally Murder in Three Acts: a very British mystery with a rich supporting cast
Murder on the Orient Express (1934) – post to come
Death in the Clouds (1935): a locked-room mystery on a plane
The ABC Murders (1935): an intriguing psychological study

Cards on the Table (1936): a lighthearted game of bridge turns fatal
Dumb Witness (1937): an adorable fox terrier steals the show
Appointment with Death (1938): a tyrannical matriarch gets what she deserves

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe (1940): it all starts with a missing buckle…
I’m currently reading all of Christie’s novels featuring Poirot, more or less in order. There are a few that I have yet to post about, as you can see. I will try to catch up as I go, and will back-date the posts so that the stories are in order.
If you’re a Christie fan, I welcome your viewpoint and opinions! If you’re interested in why I started this blog in the first place, read this.
