Last year, Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express” was one of my top 10 reads. After finally watching the movie, I feel like it would be remiss of me if I don’t post my opinions about the movie adaptation. Come to think of it, it’s only fitting that this would be my first book-to-movie adaptation review. To the friends who don’t know me well enough yet, you’re about to see where I stand regarding the age-old “book vs. movie” debate.
My reading goal in 2017 was simple: I just wanted to increase my Goodreads average rating. I wanted to focus on the quality of the books I read over quantity. I wanted to learn to set aside books I don’t enjoy just for the sake of adding one more book to my record.
Well, thanks to a couple of beloved manga series and rereading some favorite books, I ended up reading a total of 201 books! Even better, the average rating of the books I read in 2017 is 4! It goes without saying that my Goodreads average rating definitely increased. Mission accomplished!

Poirot rose. “If you will forgive me for being personal – I do not like your face, M. Ratchett,” he said.
“You’ve stared Fear in its nasty face and made it tremble. You will make it through this. We will make it through this. That is a fact more tangible than any dream or nightmare.”
