Mini Reviews: China Rich Girlfriend, The Sun Is Also a Star

I’ve got two more books to go to hit my Goodreads goal! And I definitely have more on my list to read for the rest of the year, hah. Anyway, I’m throwing in some very good audiobook recommendations your way, because why not?

I adored Crazy Rich Asians, both the movie and the book, though I will say that the movie did some things better than the book and vice versa. One of the things I liked about the movie was how it ended between Nick and Rachel and Nick’s mother. One of the things in the book that I really liked was how open-ended Michael and Astrid’s relationship was, to the point where it became a focal point in China Rich Girlfriend. And then we actually see Michael’s true colors, and Charlie Wu makes an appearance! All good fun, really.

In all respects, The Sun Is Also a Star is not the type of book I would pick up willy nilly as something to read. Honestly, Everything Everything didn’t catch my eye unless you counted the book cover. I suppose being able to listen to contemporary romances is much better than me picking a book up and reading it, and this is why I enjoyed The Sun Is Also a Star so much. My heart broke into itty bitty pieces, but the final Irene part kind of put me back together again.

Have you read either of these books? What did you think?
