Sofa Shelf - Phantoms and Secrets

Three books on the shelf this week:

The Phantom of the Opera - Gaston Leroux

This book is in my top ten, maybe even in my top five, so it's one that I'm looking forward to reading again. First time round I know that I caught myself reading it when I should have been doing other things - but I had to know what was going to happen! Hoping for similar enjoyment this time!

Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret - Dr & Mrs Howard Taylor

Bit different to The Phantom of the Opera. I don't much about Hudson Taylor so I thought it was about time I found out about him. His is one of those names that I hear quite often but don't know who they are or what their significance is. Maybe I will find out!

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - Agatha Christie

First ever Poirot. Need I say more? Can hardly wait to start it!

Pick of 2015

These are my favourites from last year:

The Case for Easter, Lee Strobel

Short and snappy, a good quick evangelistic read. Could be read comfortably in a couple of hours.

Sleeping Murder, Agatha Christie

A spooky murder mystery that has been lying dormant. Obviously waiting for Miss Marple to come along and solve it.

They do it with Mirrors, Agatha Christie

Miss Marple appears again to solve a murder that is rather theatrically carried out.
