Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan

4⭐️

Crazy Rich Asians, if you didn‘t know, is the story of when Nicholas Young convinces his girlfriend Rachel Chu to come with him to Singapore for the summer to go to his best friend‘s wedding and to meet his family. The only issue is that they are unimaginably wealth and he doesn‘t warn Rachel in advance.

I think with this book you read it more to reflect on yourself rather than actually reading it for the material. I listened to the audiobook version of this and found myself not always payinng attention to what was being said because I would listen to a section and then start thinking about how it related to me and my friend groups.

I really wanted to enjoy this book more but I think the format of the narrative (told through interview transcripts and journal entries) really dampened the experience 😩 it's unfortunate since the base concept of the story is absolutely fascinating (discovery of alien tech in the form of a giant robot) but it was tough to care about the characters and a lot of the action-y segments are muddled as a result.

I am listening to Dracula on audio all day so that I can hopefully finish the #DraculaBuddyRead. While I was enjoying my print copy, I can listen to this while I‘m at work today. The narration on this edition is really good! #Libby to the rescue today!

Took the train and walking to the hospital to get some my flu shot and some other stuff done for work. Made some great progress on this audiobook 🎧 Now time for this yummy burrito bowl for my partial shift I picked up today.

I loved this novel! For the last 1/2 I couldn‘t put it down! I had to know what happened! Beautiful story that switched between Austria 1938-39 and Los Angles 1989-91. I‘ve never read a book about a stamp maker before so this was definitely a new perspective on someone who was effected by WWII. I loved how these seemingly different stories beautifully came together! 5 stars 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Also #CurrentlyReading this one on the Kindle. Borrowed from #Libby. The story of Mary Shelley Black, and takes place in San Diego during the flu epidemic. Featuring a side cast of characters including someone who takes photos of people with the spirits of their lost loved ones. I'm only a few chapters in so far, but I'm definitely intrigued.

I borrowed this #graphicnovel in #libby . The cover is dark upon opening it and then lights up with various eyes every couple of seconds...so cool! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jonathan finds himself alone in a swamp at night & needs a place to stay 4 the night to escape the monsters. He comes across a place with a little help, but it'll cost him something to stay. Does he have the pmt or will he sleep w/ the monsters??

gonna be honest and say I feel like I'd enjoy this book more if I'd read it in middle or early high school BUT that being said it has some strong points. I really enjoyed Adeyemi's worldbuilding, setting, magic system, and integration of real-world social issues into parts of the plot 👍 the romance is pretty blah though, and the book doesn't feel like it picks up until the 2nd half 🤔
