The Time Will Come is a great meme hosted by Jodie over at Books For Company. The point of this meme is to list a book that has been sitting on our bookshelves unread for too long and we have been meaning to get round to for ages!
This week's pick is:
The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie
Alice Ascher from Andover is the first victim. Next to her corpse is a spellbinding clue. It seems that a killer is knocking off his victims one-by-one, A through Z. Alphabetically speaking, Hercule Poirot fears that it's a matter of one down, twenty-five to go.
This book I remember seeing in my local bookshop a couple of years ago and really wanting to read it. When it got round to Christmas, my Mum had actually remembered that I'd said I wanted it and had bought it for me. (Cue quite a bit of excitement!) But, I am ashamed to say, I still haven't got round to reading it. This is baaaaad.... I've never read anything by Agatha Christie and I would really love to; I just don't know what's keeping me from reading this one.
