I know!! For ages it seems, I've been the living, breathing definition of irony: a librarian who hasn't finished an actual book in too long to admit.
Anyway, it was "The letter opener" by Kyo Maclear. Her first book! I actually enjoyed it a lot. Ok, so honestly, I haven't 100% finished it. But I'm really, really close. Absolutely adored it. I really related to Naiko - though I've yet to find my Paolo or my Andrei. I still hope though!
Sleep now. Will finish the book tomorrow.
