Book of the Week

Airport  binge reading at its finest: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan. His newest book, China Rich Girlfriend, is also buried in my to-read pile.

I downloaded two NetGalley titles worth mentioning for different reasons. Bream Gives me Hiccups by Jesse Eisenberg (yes, that Jesse Eisenberg) played to my weakness for short stories and more than exceeded my expectations. (Expect for My Roommate Stole My Ramen: Letters from a Frustrated Freshman. That monstrosity can go.)  I was highlighting passages left and right. So funny and irreverent.

The Flying Circus by Susan Crandall doesn’t really pick up any steam until about 2/3rds of the way in, and at nearly 400 pages, that’s a big investment for a predictable ending and an infuriating epilogue that does too much tidying. If you’re looking to read something from Susan,  Whistling Past the Graveyard is a better choice.

If you want to join an impromptu book club, a few of us are reading Bone Gap by Laura Ruby and discussing on my Facebook page mid-month!
