Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange and the World's Most Dangerous Website by Daniel Domscheit-Berg

It's an extremely interesting read but obviously doesn't describe all those events and people in the most objective way. A bit bitter but still very exciting.

Currently reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt and I love it so far. I'll also be starting The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood soon for class.

A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin. I can't seem to read anything else nowadays.

Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? by jeanette winterson.

i just don't know whether to laugh or cry in this book, moment to moment. i love her writing so much, and this is such a tender, funny, heart ache of a book so far. i have always loved her fiction, even in its flamboyant moments - and i know plenty of people who think she's a joke - but i can't help but love her even more, reading this account of her life.

I'm finishing up The Next Time You See Me by Holly Goddard Jones, and re-reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt.
Both are amazing.
