Here another challenge for 2020. I have so many started series that I can’t count and I’d like to finish them but I know it is an impossible task at least for now since a lot of them are still ongoing but I’d like to at least read till the last book published (or translated in Italian). Here the challenge post if you want to join. I’m going for C-LIST SERIES FINISHER ⇒ COMPLETE 1-4 SERIES being the “4” my goal.
Hashtag for the challenge is #FinishingTheSeries2020 and I need to remember the quad link-ups:
Hercule Poirot is vacationing on the Cornish coast when he meets Nick Buckly. Nick is the young and reckless mistress of End House, an imposing structure perched on the rocky cliffs of St. Loo.
Poirot has taken a particular interest in the young woman who has recently narrowly escaped a series of life-threatening accidents. Something tells the Belgian sleuth that these so-called accidents are more than just mere coincidences or a spate of bad luck. It seems all too clear to him that someone is trying to do away with poor Nick, but who? And, what is the motive? In his quest for answers, Poirot must delve into the dark history of End House. The deeper he gets into his investigation, the more certain he is that the killer will soon strike again. And, this time, Nick may not escape with her life.
About the book
Second Agatha Christie’s book that I read and first about Hercule Poirot. This is not the first book in the series because I have only 4 Christie’s books in the house and I don’t want to spend money on these series. Even if it’s the #8 in the series, it wasn’t difficult to understand the book. The only flaw is that I don’t know the characters very well.
First of all the narrator is Captain Hastings and not Poirot as I believed before reading this book. The book is set in an island in the south of England in the middle of the Channel (or this is what I found searching for the city on Google Maps) and here Poirot retired form his detective work.
He meets a woman, Nicky, who has been victim of 3 attacks on her life, but she doesn’t know that someone wants to kill her.
In this category I will publish about new books, according to Goodread.com. Meaning that I will choose a book each Monday, from the “New Releases” page @ GoodReads. I will choose random covers that speak to me, that are nice or cute, without looking at the author, genre or synopsis.
All her life, Spensa has dreamed of becoming a pilot. Of proving she’s a hero like her father. She made it to the sky, but the truths she learned about her father were crushing.
Spensa is sure there’s more to the story. And she’s sure that whatever happened to her father in his starship could happen to her. When she made it outside the protective shell of her planet, she heard the stars–and it was terrifying. Everything Spensa has been taught about her world is a lie.
But Spensa also discovered a few other things about herself–and she’ll travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind if she needs to.
Another day, another reading challenge. This is specifically for eBooks since this is my favourite way of reading (actually it’s not, I do prefer physical books but because of space I can’t buy anymore) I think I can accomplish quite a few steps.
The challenge is hosted by Tina @ As Told by Tina and you may read the rules and sign up at her website. It’s my first year with this challenge, so I can’t compare to last year result. But I did read a lot of ebooks last year so I’m going for: 20-29 – Pro Status.

All my book reviews are and will be 100% honest. I don’t get paid to write them and I don’t get “gifts” to write a good review so what I write is what I think. If I love a book, I’m going to say that, if I don’t like a book, I will write why I don’t. My critics aren’t an attack to the author, they are just how I feel about a subject or a style.
