Book Review: A River in Darkness by Masaji Ishikawa

Despite being short in length, "A River in Darkness" is a really heavy and difficult read. This is an educational story of one man's journey to and from North Korea, following propaganda offering paradise when they arrived. If you're not up to speed with this aspect of history and (even more sadly) the current political climate, I'd recommend picking this up.

Book Review: Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig

A quick, enjoyable read which I hope can remind those in need that they are not alone in feeling how they do. As an important account of one young man's struggle with mental illness, this is not something I can 100% relate with, yet "Reasons to Stay Alive" is beautifully written with inspirational quotes on every page and I'm giving it 3 stars.
