Reading Agatha Christie Books | Endless Night

After failing miserably at keeping up with the bookish challenges & resolutions, I was resolved to do only the GR Reading Challenge this year. However, I had to reconsider the decision, when the gusto for AC Books by the fellow Bookstagrammers started growing on me day by day. The discussions about her books and TV series lured me into their groups, and soon I too had to start reading AC books. So, I've decided to peruse a Agatha Christie book each month.

I decided to start by reading the books I already own. I read ENDLESS NIGHT in this month and will be reading more of Christie's works in the coming months. So, stay tuned for more news...

Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get To (But TOTALLY plan to)

Around 100 of books were added to my TBR in 2016, and I couldn't get my hands on even half of them. Not because I didn't wish to, but they were either pricey or due to the lack of time to read them.

When the Reading Became Too Slow | Monthly-Wrapup

Never been a slow reader before, unless I was in a state of having a horrible reading slump; yet my reading was sluggish in the month of December. Even though not bustled as the holidays usually are, the days were busy enough with the family functions and some unplanned get-together to get into. I was feeling ecstatic whole day with all the fun, food, merriness and the excitement - still, the only thing I wanted to do after coming home was to crash into my bed and have a good sleep.

The other days were spent on ticking off things from the to-do list. The reading hours were replaced with tasks, that had to be done before 2016 was gone forever. And, three impromptu trips with the cousins and family in the last week of December sucked out the whole energy from me. Though I had carried books with me everywhere I went, no reading was done. In short,  I read only ONE book last month.
