Day 3

Day 3: A favorite book.

Yet another thing that I do not have just one favorite of. :P Let's see...

I think I will do, because it is kind of random, and because I doubt most people have read it, Death Comes as the End by Agatha Christie.

It was the only one of her stories I think that was not set in present time. It's an Egyptian story about a widow named Renisenb and the possible ghost of a woman named Nefret. It's very scary and has a very sad/interesting/surprising/happy ending. :D

I generally love Agatha Christie, because her style of writing is very gripping, but I also love her because she inspires me to write. I read one of her books and I come away all fired up to work on my own stories. One of my other favorites by her is The Crystal Ball and Other Stories. It's a collection of short ghost stories. Some of which are also really scary. I like a good ghost story as long as it's not just plain terrifying. :P They have to be more of a suspense kind of thing.

Next time you're either in the mood for a good British book, or a mystery, or ghost story, these are very good choices for you!

Love you!
