Hello and welcome! This is my weekly series, Top Three Thursdays, or, for convenience, TTT. Every week I discuss my top three in any bookish topic. If you’d like to participate, write up a post on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below.
The topic for today (08/06/17) is: Mystery Series I Want to Complete
These are very popular series that I’ve read a few books from but I want to re-read from starting to finish so I don’t miss out on anything. I had hoped to make June a ‘Mystery Reading Month’, but my plans went a little haywire because my reading mood didn’t cooperate. I still hope to finish these series in 2017, which is super-ambitious, but I’ll try anyway.
1. The Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Chrisite
I’d mentioned previously that I wanted to read Murder on the Orient Express before the movie comes out. The truth is, I want to all of the books featuring this iconic detective. I’ve read a few books when I was in high school but I honestly can’t remember the titles very correctly or even recall the plot. So, I’m planning to give this entire series a re-read soon.
2. The Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene
A favourite of mine when I was in middle grade, I didn’t keep track of all the titles I read. Many of them sound familiar, but I’m unsure of whether I’ve read them or just stared at the cover hoping to borrow them from the school library. A friend of mine recently started re-reading the series as well, so I thought it would be best to join her for a read-along.
3. The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton
Instead of hopping on this popular train, I picked up the Five Find-Outers and Dog series by the same author. I got the first three book in this series when I was in my teens. I enjoyed them, but never continued on. This beloved children’s series is something I have to complete before I call myself an accomplished mystery reader.
