2015 Reading Challenge

Last year I was able to cross Read More off of my bucket list, but I want to stay motivated to keep up with reading this year. In order to do this, I decided to join a book lovers group and each of us are going to attempt to do the 2015 Reading Challenge. At the end of each month I will give an update on each of the books I have read for this list. So far I have read A Nonfiction Book (Without You, There is No Us), A Memoir (Then They Came for Me), and A Book With A Love Triangle (A Tale of Two Cities). Not sure what I will read next, but I will be sure to let you know next month!

New to the List:

  • Without You, There Is No Us by Suki Kim
  • A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

Without You, There Is No Us, is absolutely amazing. It is a true story about a journalist who went to North Korea to teach English to the sons of the country’s elite. It gives a very interesting inside look at what life is really like in North Korea. I highly recommend it. A Tale of Two Cities is obviously a classic and a must read.
