The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeosneseo Lee
This book is about Hyeosneseo Lee’s life from living in North Korea her whole childhood to finding herself a defector at the age of eighteen, and that is about half the story. We all know that the Kim regime is evil, but this book puts a personal story on top of that. Can not stress this enough: CHECK THIS BOOK OUT!
My Rating: Must Read
Born A Crime by Trevor Noah
Funny, gripping, eye opening account of Trevor’s life South Africa during and after Apartheid. I felt like a learned a lot and that I walked a little in his shoes. Great perspective and great story.
My Rating: Highly Recommend
Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Jon Meacham
A great biography, beautifully told but might be slightly too brief, like this review. See what I did there.
My Rating: Recommend
