Review: "The End of the Magi" by Patrick W. Carr

As we approach Christmas, we often think of Jesus' birth, of Mary and Joseph, of the angels, and even of the shepherds. But what of the magi? I admit I don't often think of them—except to insist that the wise men in my nativity set must remain separate from the rest because they didn't show up until Jesus was a toddler.

Patrick W. Carr's The End of the Magi shines a fictional light on these mysterious men and helps the reader see the Christmas story in a new way.

Review: "A Match for Emma" by Pepper Basham

A Match for Emma by Pepper Basham

This is the second Emma adaptation I've read in the past few months (I recently read Alexander McCall Smith's Emma), and, while it might take more liberties with the story than the first did, it's also infinitely more enjoyable!

Review: "Recursion" by Blake Crouch

A year ago, I read Blake Crouch's Dark Matter while on a five-hour flight home from San Francisco. (Best. Vacation. Ever.) When I learned Crouch had a new book releasing, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it ... except I had to, as there was a long waiting list at my library! My hold finally came in, and the wait was worth it!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

A couple years ago, I read Kelli Stuart's Like a River From Its Course. I was blown away. So when I heard her next novel was about to release, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
