Not quite a book a week in 2012, but close-ish - and some of them were big books!

44 The Mysterious Affair at Style Agatha Christie 

This is the first Poirot novel, and is narrated by Hastings. A classic beginning. 

45 The Murder of Roger Ackroyd  Agatha Christie

I love that this is written from such an unusual perspective. It is very clever indeed. 

46 A Game of Throne  George R.R. Martin

Another one so good that I bought the series. This is absolutely phenomenal. Any one know if the adaptation is as good?

47 Murder on the Orient Express Agatha Christie

One of my favourite Poirots, and I love the conclusion. 

48 Three Blind Mic Agatha Christie

I really must book tickets fo The Mousettrap hen it comes to Leeds, as Mum should be better by then. I loved this collection of short stories.

Just two this month, you'll see why next month!

42: The Abbey Chris Culver

Just about readable rubbish. Improbable, but strangely engaging. Not the best written book I have ever read, he seems to feel the need to hit you over the head with certain things. 

43: The Hunger Games Suzanne Collins

So good I bought the series! (I had borrowed this one from work). Couldn't put it down.

18: The Blade Itself Joe Abercrombie 

This took me a while to get into at first, but I then couldn't put it down. Great world and characters. 

19: The Gaol: the story of Newgate - London's most notorious prison  Kelly Grovier

Absolutely fascinating. You really couldn't make some of these people up! It also overlapped nicely with The Invention of Murder which I read earlier this year (and made me want to watch Plunkett and Macleane again)

20: All Wound Up Stephanie Pearl-McPhee 

As funny as ever. Not just knitting-funny though, about family and life too.

15: Turn of the Tide Pamela Oldfield 

Re-read in honour of the Titanic anniversary. Not the greatest piece of literature, but I am very fond of this book. 

16: The Devil's Acre Matthew Plampin

There are some great characters in this book, and the one based on a real person is most definitely a 'character'! Good story and atmosphere. I am becoming a fan of this author. 

17: Winter's Children Leah Fleming 

Predictable love story, but sometimes that is no bad thing. I actually wanted these characters to be happy. Nice mix of past and present in a not-creepy ghost story.
