Like many readers, it’s no surprise that I love Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians (both book and movie). China Rich Girlfriend was a fun sequel that expanded this extravagant, shopping-spree filled world and gave more insight on particular characters. Kitty and Astrid are my favorites, Kitty for her continued ridiculousness and Astrid for her intelligence and relationships with Charlie and Michael (who I definitely didn’t like). We also spent more time with Nick and Rachel. In addition, I loved the trip to Paris, I actually liked Rachel’s father and that storyline more than expected, and MANY things about the ending left me shocked. I am not so patiently waiting for Rich People Problems to come in from my county library.

My Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
