My Bookshelf: Dec 2019

Rich People Problems

This was the third and final installment of the “Crazy Rich Asians” series. If you’ve read books one and two, it’s a no-brainer: smart, funny, and a great ending to an entertaining trilogy.

If you haven’t started the series at all, I wouldn’t categorize it as a “must read.” If you’re ever looking for something light, funny, and quick, this series is perfect.

3/5 Stars

American Royals

This was a book club pick that I enjoyed more than I thought I would.

What would’ve happened if George Washington didn’t turn down the monarchy? This novel seeks to answer that question with a modern-day spin as the “House of Washington” sits on the modern-day throne.

This fictional tale is part The Crown part Real Housewives, so take it for what it’s worth.

3/5 Stars

A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War

My favorite this month was “A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War.” This is the non-fiction account of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien’s adolescence, war experiences, and their friendship during the early part of the last century.

The author takes you through many life experiences of the authors that give meaning to their many characters and novels.

But most notably, the author focuses on the Lewis and Tolkien’s faith and how, even in the midst of WWI and its aftermath, they sought to bring hope and shine a light in the darkness through their writings.

4/5 Stars
