Book Challenge February Roundup

With all the preparations for my big move two days ago, I haven’t had much time to read this February. I managed to sneak in a short book, though, so here is my spoiler-free review!

What are you reading right now?

This novel is stunning. It’s about the creation of time by a human man and the consequences his discovery has for future generations. There are three plot lines that weave together beautifully in the end and left me crying from their poignancy. Every once in a while, it’s good to be reminded to make each day you have on this earth count and that it’s never too late to be better. There are gentle religious overtones, but the writing is never preachy. I highly recommend this novel.

  1. I recommend “Cleopatra: A Life” by Stacy Schiff. It is more in line with the “Tigress of Forli” that you previously reviewed. It’s not a novel like “The Time Keeper”, but it has enough intrigue to read like one…so long as you can stomach a family as incestuous as the Ptolemies.
