Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that highlights upcoming titles that we’re looking forward to/dying to read. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
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. A sweeping novel that takes us from the elegantly appointed mansions of Manila to the secluded private islands in the Sulu Sea, from a schoolyard kidnapping to a gold-leaf dancefloor spattered with blood, Kevin Kwan’s gloriously wicked new novel reveals the long-buried secrets and rich people problems of Asia’s most privileged families.
When I first heard about this book, I knew I needed it right
If you know me even a little bit, you will know that I am OBSESSED with Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians series. I always try to stay on top of the latest news when it comes to the book series and the movie which is currently in casting. I’m also responsible for convincing most of my blogger friends (and a couple of non book blogger ones as well) to pick up this series.
The synopsis of the last book in this series promises a ton of juicy drama and I’m definitely looking forward to the face-off between Kitty and Colette! Rich People Problems is without a doubt my most anticipated 2017 release. Here’s to hoping that it proves to be a satisfying conclusion to what has been one of my favourite series ever! (I’m also hoping the author visits Toronto again so I’ll be able to get my copy of the book signed)
What books are you “waiting” on this week?
