Dear Diary | 20 Oct, 2017 | Spookathon Day 5 | My first book by Agatha Christie!

Dear Diary

Today is going to be a late start, because most of the day went in yesterday. Made sense? If you’ve read last night’s diary entry , you’d know!
I thought today won’t be as bad yesterday, it wasn’t, but we still had some firecrackers-bursting-baffoons doing what they do best! *sigh* (cough! cough! can’t sigh in this pollution!)


2:56 PM  Just uploaded yesterday’s blog post.

3.02 PM – I think I’ll try sleeping for sometime. Or read and doze off

3.44 PM – Took a quick nap and had lunch now. Mr. Doughnut wants to go out and play. Let’s go!



5.47 PM – I came back after playing and walking Doughie and just crashed in bed. I’m SO tired today! And I still can’t move my right shoulder.
Anyway, so I have my scented candle lit, reading light on and I’ve decided to read a murder is announced by Agatha Christie. And it is my first ever read by her! I borrowed this from my friend, Mahak, ages back! I’m not sure why I never read any by her before, I mean I do enjoy crime books, thrillers and mysteries and what not!
I think I selected this book to go with a Spooky word challenge from Spookathon. I say I think because at this moment my brain’s too tired to be sure of anything.
I’m onto the 2nd chapter now and it’s got me pretty hooked! Will I be up to finish this book tonight? Let’s see!


7.04 PM – and we’re back at Doughie’s comfy place. I hope it doesn’t get as bad as yesterday.


7.22 PM – My friend, Apurva, just did her first video review on her Instagram handle! So exciting! I’ve really been enjoying book community ❤️

8.20 PM – At least it’s not as suffocating as last night. But how long really? How long will it take for these dodos to understand that they’re spoiling everything for everyone. And they’re adults! Adults! Age really is just a number.

10.40 PM – And the stupidity continues!

I haven’t been able to read a lot today because I’ve been so tired and un-rested that I kept dozing off almost anywhere – while sitting, while reading etc etc.

It’s 11.38 PM now as I sit in my room, with a face pack on,  and edit the blog –  preparing to post it. I’ve only been able to read 100 or so pages. But now, FINALLY the fireworks have reduced and Doughie’s sleeping. Poor baby didn’t go out for a walk today too. I hope tomorrow this doesn’t happen at all and we can resume to our play times in the evening and routinely walks and happiness! Oh and breathing!
Now, I just plan to get ready for bed, clean my room a little and just sit down to reading. I won’t stay up too late tonight which means I won’t be finishing the book, but hopefully tomorrow!

Reading time now! 😀

  1. Hope everything starts to get better this weekend 🙂
    I also never read an Agatha Christie novel (I’m going to change that as soon as I get my hand on a copy of the Murder on The Orient Express) although I saw the iTv series Miss Marple and one of the episodes is about that book. I remember loving it! Probably should add it to my shopping list.
    It’s also nice to know that I’m not the only one how never read a book by her. I feel has if I’m not trully into mysteries if I don’t read her work :p


    1. Thank you!

      Haha I too have a list prepared of books by her I want to read! I’ve been getting a few more messages and the funny thing is many of them started with, “I confess I haven’t read any by her too” XD
      Let me know when you start reading one by her! I’d love to get some ideas!
