My Never Ending List

I picked up this novel as this author also wrote another novel, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter that I really enjoyed and the subject matter of this novel, intrigued me. I was worried that this novel would have a preachy tone but adventure and excitement greeted me from the beginning. I was surprise...

Not bad of a read. Similar to Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, Grahame-Smith does a good job taking a story we all know and adding specifics to it, in a 'what-if' way. He definitely makes things believable. I like the addition of the long lost girlfriend and reading Joseph's torment.

I enjoyed the hell out of this buddy read with Kells. Gotta admit, though, I did not expect that I would like this book as much as I did. I'm not one for mashups, so I've successfully skirted much of Seth Grahame-Smith's catalogue. You'll likely see me tackle that Abraham Lincoln vamp book, but only...

I think it was mostly the cover what made me buy this book. I was on a shopping spree for my birthday (I wasn't the one paying) so I didn't care much that it wasn't exactly the book I would usually go for. I had already started reading the story when I realized it was by the same author of [b:Abraha...

On a dark night a long time ago, a child is born to a poor carpenter and his wife. It is a story that is familiar to Christians and non-Christians alike. What is not known is more about the Three Wise Men who greet the newborn king and the subsequent journey of this little family from Bethlehem to E...

The beginning was a little rough for me. If it wasn't for book club, I probably would have tossed it but instead I kept reading. You know, I fell in love with this story. There's just enough irreverence to make you wonder-what really happened in Judea all those years ago.

Stories of the birth in Bethlehem always centre on Jesus, Mary and Joseph, however there were three other fairly significant beings there that night. Always mentioned, and then glossed over, no one really know much about the three wise men who brought gifts on the eve of baby Jesus’ birth. Seth Gr...
