Lately, I’ve been on a roll with finishing books. I recently finished one kindle book and one audio book. I’m currently working on another kindle book, and I wanted to share my thoughts on all three.
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
This book has been on my to-read list forever. Honestly, I’ve borrowed it through Overdrive about five times. I kept forgetting about it, and then it would get returned to Overdrive. Well, it must be popular because every time I put a hold on it there was a waiting list. This is an interesting read about a guy, Leon, who sublets his apartment for half the day while he’s at work. Tiffy, the other main character, needs a place to stay and fast. Leon needs cash and Tiffy needs an apartment, so it’s basically a perfect match. It is a romance, so you can probably imagine where the storyline is going. However, it’s slightly more than just a romance. It’s so good, and it left me feeling so sappy and happy.
The Opposite of Spoiled by Ron Lieber
This has been my driving to/from work book in the car. I listened to this through Audible at about 1.5x because I simply can’t listen to audiobooks any other way. This is just a really interesting book on how people spend their disposable income, how they work/spend/budget so they can have more disposable income, and how people contribute to their communities (local and at large) with that income. It sounds boring, and it kind of is in a way. But, I found it really interesting how philanthropic normal people can be.
Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan
I finally finished the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy! The best book was just as good as the first two. If you don’t know the overarching story of Crazy Rich Asians, here it is. Nick is a wealthy man from China. He comes from a very, very rich family. He meets Rachel, a Chinese-American professor in the United States. They fall in love, get married, etc. Well, lots and lots of people Nick’s family and social circles have a problem with that. In Rich People Problems, Nick’s very (as in, EXTREMELY) rich grandmother is failing in health, and Nick is set to inherit her huge property in China. No one knows who will get what until the will is read at the end, but rest assured this entire story takes you on a wild ride through the world of the insanely rich. It’s so funny/good/enjoyable. I loved it!
And here is the one book I’m almost done reading.
The Heir Affair (The Royal We #2) by Heather Cocks and Jennifer Morgan
I am finally reading the sequel to The Royal We! If you’ve never heard of this series, it’s very, very loosely based on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s courtship and early marriage. So, at the end of the first book there’s a huge scandal at their wedding. The beginning of The Heir Affair is the fall out from that scandal. The scandal is a huge cloud over their heads for about 2/3 of the book. I’m very nearly finished and can’t wait to share my thoughts when I’m done!
