finished.... FINALLY!!
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August - Claire North

EXTREMELY unique premise that is well written (though scattered at times) and has interesting concept/characters. Overall, this is a mostly enjoyable read but it took a reeeaaalllyyy long time to end and when it did I just stared at the ereader for a long while. It didn't bog down at any one place, it was just a steady March to Please Dear Lord Make It End. I won't say that I wish for my time back BUT when I find myself skipping ahead repeatedly to see when it will all be over....that's usually a bad sign. Harry August was a likeable character and the concept/execution of the book were done so well it made the sloshing worthwhile.

Barbara Demick
Nothing to Envy. Ordinary Lives in North Korea - Barbara Demick

As a book nerd living in Asia who prefer reading English books, I don't get to meet a lot of writers. 

 

So, I would jump at the opportunity to meet any writer who comes my way.

 

This is one of those days. 

 

Got my book signed. And hear her talked about North Korea and how she get her stories.

 

This is pretty interesting, especially when it is a country that is really hard to get into, and it is pretty isolated from the rest of the world. 

 

Going to write a review about this book soon.
