What I Read – March 2018

Read: The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern (Doubleday Canada, 2011) More style than substance though I enjoyed it while I was reading it.

It's hard for me to believe that it's been almost ten years since I last set foot in China. It's been even longer since I've been to Beijing - all the way back to the summer of 2002. Since then, the city has hosted the Olympics and, no doubt, changed drastically. Jan Wong details many… Continue reading Book Review: Beijing Confidential – Jan Wong
