I found this weekly meme a few days ago when I decided to revamp my website (tell me what you think). It’s called: ‘Can’t Wait Wednesday’ and is hosted by Wishful Endings. The general premise is to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released as well.
I can’t wait for Kevin Kwan’s Rich People Problems. It’s the third installment of the Crazy Rich Asians series. I’m expecting it to be just as cynically funny as its predecessors (Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend). I found out this was coming out earlier in the year and added it to my Goodreads ‘Want to Read’ list. To my surprise and happiness I was notified that there would be a giveaway and to my dismay, I didn’t win. Then a few weeks later it was a giveaway again, and again to my dismay, I did not win. CRAP!
Title: Rich People Problems
Author: Kevin Kwan
Format: Hardcover, 384 pages
Release Date: May 23, 2017
Summary from Kevin Kwan Books:
Kevin Kwan, the bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend, is back with an uproarious new novel of a family riven by fortune, an ex-wife driven psychotic with jealousy, a battle royal fought through couture-gown sabotage, and the heir to one of Asia’s greatest fortunes locked out of his inheritance.
Why I want to read: I want to read it for a couple of reasons (1) I’m a serial purist. In other words, I have to read the entire series from beginning to end and a sidebar – it kills me to have to wait for the next installment and (2) As I stated earlier the first two really enjoyed and were hi-larious and I’m hoping and believing that Rich People Problems will be just as good and funny.
