I’m keeping my reading list extremely short for October as I am back to taking classes ( in addition to full time work.. pray for me LOL) so a lot of my leisurely reading time will have to be devoted to a textbook! However I do have 2 books and 1 devotional that I hope to get through this month!
- China Rich Girlfriend- Kevin Kwan – This is part two in the Crazy Rich Asians series. I read the first one last month and was absolutely enamoured with the story. I just have to see how this story ends! Here is the synopsis of this book:
On the eve of her wedding to Nicholas Young, heir to one of the greatest fortunes in Asia, Rachel should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher cut diamond from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the salons of Paris, and a fiancé willing to sacrifice his entire inheritance in order to marry her. But Rachel still mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she has never known, won’t be able to walk her down the aisle.
Until: a shocking revelation draws Rachel in to a world of Shanghai splendor beyond anything she has ever imagined. Here we meet Carlton, a Ferrari-crashing bad boy known for Prince Harry-like antics; Colette, a celebrity girlfriend chased by fevered paparazzi; and the man Rachel has spent her entire life waiting to meet: her father. Meanwhile, Singapore’s It Girl, Astrid Leong, is shocked to discover that there is a downside to having a newly-minted tech billionaire husband.
A romp through Asia’s most exclusive clubs, auction houses, and estates, China Rich Girlfriend brings us into the elite circles of Mainland China, introducing a captivating cast of characters, and offering an inside glimpse at what it’s like to be gloriously, crazily China-rich ( synopsis from Goodreads.com)
- Rich People Problems: This is the third and final installment in the Crazy Rich Asians series. Here is the synopsis for this book:
When Nicholas Young hears that his grandmother, Su Yi, is on her deathbed, he rushes to be by her bedside–but he’s not alone. It seems the entire Shang-Young clan has convened from all corners of the globe, ostensibly to care for their matriarch but truly to stake claim on the massive fortune that Su Yi controls.
With each family member secretly fantasizing about getting the keys to Tyersall Park–a trophy estate on 64 prime acres in the heart of Singapore–the place becomes a hotbed of intrigue and Nicholas finds himself blocked from entering the premises.
As relatives claw over heirlooms, Astrid Leong is at the center of her own storm, desperately in love with her old sweetheart Charlie Wu, but tormented by his ex-wife–a woman hell bent on destroying Astrid’s reputation and relationship. Meanwhile Kitty Pong, married to billionaire Jack Bing, finds a formidable opponent in his fashionista daughter, Colette. ( synopsis courtesy of Goodreads.com)
- Redeemed : A study on the book of Exodus- Yet again another beautiful devotional from the Daily Grace Co. They always have easy to follow and interactive devotionals that make studying the word of God not boring! I highly suggest you check them out!( click link) I have the original print( Not the one shown in the photo here . The content is pretty much the same.) Here’s the synopsis of this devotional:
This study of God’s deliverance of His people reminds us of our own deliverance and redemption. It reminds us of who God is and what He has done for us. As we study how Moses would deliver his people from Egypt, we are reminded of our True Deliverer who has redeemed us from our sin.
That’s it for this month folks! What are you guys reading this month? Let me know!
Till next time!
