It Ends With Us

This is one of those books where you have to stay up all night to read it in one sitting, and one of those books that tugs at your heartstrings, makes you choke up and long for the childhood love that’s so beautifully written about in here. There’s so much more to this book that Read More…

The Lions of Fifth Avenue

This is such a great book for all library and book lovers out there! Notable lines: “She sat down in the big chair by the fire and cried. She cried for her boy, for her husband, for the life she’d imagined she’d be leading. For her arrogance at thinking she deserved more than she had. Read More…

The Paris Hours

Loved this book and the intertwining characters and their stories. Beautifully and exceptionally written. Oh, and it really made me want to go back to Paris!! Notable lines: “The Americans’ faith in the regenerative power of new geography astonishes him. It’s a myth, this idea that you can change who you are simply by climbing Read More…

YA Summer Reads

For those who don’t know, YA stands for Young Adult books. And, what categorizes a “summer read”? I imagine it to be a light, engaging, and fun book you’d want to take with you to the beach or on the subway. Either way, the two-part series of “Grace and Fury” and “Queen of Ruin” fit Read More…

Thrillers

What is with the appeal of thrillers and horror stories? I loved hearing ghost stories as a child while away at camp, and staying up all night reading a suspenseful book. I’m not into gore and violence, but more so the psychological thrillers since there’s always a deeper, darker story to somehow rationalize or explain Read More…

Good Talk

Happy August everyone! A friend recommended this book, and I absolutely loved it! I love getting book recs 🙂 and I loved Mira Jacob’s honesty. This is such a pertinent and important read, especially during these times. Notable lines: “You are an American. I don’t care when your parents came here. They are Americans, too. Read More…

Anna K

Who doesn’t love delving into the ritz and glamour of NYC? It’s something about these “Gossip Girl” type books that draws and captivates us. It’s enthralling to picture luxurious homes, fancy getaways and all types of drama among the young elite. And of course…all of the love triangles and angst that come with it! I Read More…

How to American

I never really heard of Jimmy Yang, but I did notice him in “Crazy Rich Asians.” His story was filled with his struggles in pursuing his stand-up comedy dream, while navigating living in America as an immigrant. Btw, I loved how he acted for Danny Meng, someone I had never heard of before, yet who Read More…

Agatha Christie

Oh, Agatha Christie. I remember not entirely understanding “And Then There Were None” since I was a child when we had the required reading, though I still remember the famous lines. Then there was the book and movie “Murder on the Orient Express.” And now I came upon this book, “Death Comes as the End.” Read More…

Haruki Murakami Yet Again

I just love curling up with a Haruki Murakami book! Also, this is a pretty awesome NYC puzzle that has a Metro Card on one side and an NYC subway map on the other side! Notable lines: “But at the same time I have this strong urge inside me to try something else, to come Read More…
