The Monogram Murders


I bought Sophie Hannah's book The Monogram Murders last year, but it just sits longingly on my bookshelf.

Why? Because it feels wrong for me to read it when I haven't finished Agatha Christie's original Hercule Poirot series yet.

Is this weird?

Somehow it just feels highly blasphemous.

Worse even, I'm not even reading the original series in order! I tried at first but then started skipping around when I received installments as gifts. Granted, the books don't have to be read in order so what is my problem?

I adore Hercule Poirot, but I feel like I need to read all the original books in their entirety before seeing how he's been resurrected by someone new.

Do you have a difficult time reading a book series out of order? Have you read this one yet?
