What I’m Reading: China Rich Girlfriend

If you loved Crazy Rich Asians, you’ll love the sequel! China Rich Girlfriend is the second book in Kevin Kwan’s series and it did not disappoint. I had such a hard time putting this one down! The crazy rich Asians are back and they’ve brought friends. There are even more characters to keep straight this go around and you have to remember all the crazy lineage from the last book! My suggestion: get all three books at one time that way you never leave the story (that’s what I did anyway!).

This was definitely a book of the summer and if you can put off reading it until next summer it would be a perfect beach read. I truly felt like I was caught up in what seems like a whole other universe. Kwan found the perfect balance between including former main characters, introducing new faces, and thrusting minor characters from the first book into the spotlight.

While I don’t want to give away too much here is some of the stuff you’ll find in China Rich Girlfriend:

  • helicopter
  • a very important ring
  • Rachel’s family
  • poison
  • a car accident
  • and more details on your favorite porn star turned socialite

I think I will leave it at that, what could possible peak your interest more?

Happy reading!
