What I Read in February

"Reading is a discount ticket to everywhere"  Mary Schmich

Crazy rich asians by Kevin Kwan ★ (4) 
This book is about Nick and Rachel's first trip together to Singapore.  During the trip Rachel will discover that Nick's friends and family are indescribably wealthy. 
As the book title suggest, you will get accurate eye-popping description about the lavish and opulent lives of the very rich of Singapore. The book opened my eyes to a part of world that I barely know and make me want to travel around Asia; still it felt like reading "Gossip girls". 

China rich girlfriends by Kevin Kwan  (3)
This is the sequel of Crazy rich Asians.  I was so into the story that after I finished the first one I started reading this. This book take place mainly in China and Paris. I was disappointed with the plot, less enjoyable than the first.   Too much drama and gossip for my taste. 

After I do by Taylor Jenkins Reid ★ (4)
Lauren and Ryan started dating in college and after many years their marriage has deteriorated. They decided to separated for a year.  Sometimes love is not enough and sometimes because of love you learn from mistakes and don't easily give up.   A book that will make you cry but will leave you thinking about marriage and relationships. 
I highly recommend from the same author Forever, interrupted.  

A window opens by Elisabeth Egan  ★ (4)
A book describes all the constant juggling of a working mother.   After her husband lost his job, Alice got a full-time job to help to support her family.   At the beginning it seems it will be a perfect job about her passion, books.  But soon she will realize that she is constantly tired with a long commute and a non-stop job that is not even close to what she expected.  I don't have kids but I felt that the book described how hard is to get work-life balance.
