  5. I know MotOE came out last year but my Instagram is FULL of Agatha Christie novels and I can't figure out why lol

    I guess they're timeless and have very photogenic covers :-)

    1. I've been shocked to see just how MANY there are. Like there are literally dozens of different covers for some of the books.

  6. Agatha Christie's covers are usually fantastic (even the extremely "old skool" 80s ones), which is as it should be. She is such a queen! I need to read more of her stuff.

    1. I do too. To be totally honest I've hardly read ANY of her stuff (the last one I tried I got bored) but some of these vintage covers are awesome!

  9. Very cool covers. I just found two bins of old school horror from the 90's and can't wait to check out some of those covers soon.

  11. Both have really nice covers. Speaking of Agatha Christie, which of her works are your favorite? And which ones would you recommend to a newbie? *Prepares notebook that has wishlist*

    1. I like both too. And to be honest- I've hardly read any of her stuff, although I mean to, so I'm not much of a good source for recommendations!

  12. I love these art deco style covers that reflect the era and the book's genre so well.

  13. I love both covers, but the first one is just amazing. I haven't read any Agatha Christie yet, but I really need to. I'm sure I'm missing out!
