    Now that I have completed the book, my final thoughts are that it was interesting. I'm personally not a fan of science history, but I have to admit, the way the author presented this story was great. I did at times find that I had to force my way through the book, particularly where the book talked about different scientists who studied HeLa between the 1950's to about the 1970's. It got kind of confusing for me. With that being said, I would still recommend this, only if you really wanted to know the true story of these amazing cells. It truly is a one-of-a-kind book.

    He narrates all the way through but he stops interrupting as much

    I loved "The Night Circus" and finished it in a matter of hours - the separate tent descriptions absolutely fascinated me (I'm the kind of person who loves imaginative details like those)

    Has anyone read "Middlemarch" by George Eliot? I am finally getting around to starting it, but the size is slightly putting me off...

    Next to somewhere.
    I'm reading two things:
    Skunk for Rent (a Christian fiction book from the 80s)
    The Warrior Heir (for my book club)

    I'm about to start reading "Looking for Alaska" by John Green. I'm not sure if its going to be my cup of tea, but I enjoyed the Fault in Our Stars well enough so I thought I'd give it a chance.

    I have about five books I still need to finish but I just can't seem to find the motivation. Technically, I am currently reading: "The Secret Keeper" by Kate Morton, "The Winter Sea" and "The Rose Garden" by Susanna Kearsley, "The American Heiress" by Daisy Goodwin and "The Secret Daughter of the Tsar" by Jennifer Laam.
