Continuing on with all the Christmas reads that I’m trying to fit in this holiday season, I’m currently reading Just Like Magic by Sarah Hogle.
This holiday read has some magical realism going on. Bettie could not care less about Christmas coming up because she’s struggling in her personal life and does not want to see her very wealthy and judgmental family. One night she plays Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” on the record player when something goes wrong and it starts playing backwards. Apparently when the current top song on the Billboard Top 100 is played backwards during the holidays it conjures the holiday spirit. Alas, Hall A. Day aka Holiday shows up and is here to help Bettie find the Christmas spirit again. So far it’s pretty funny and I’m looking forward to reading what happens.
I’m about halfway through the book and I’m hoping to finish it by tomorrow night so I can put a review up on Sunday!
