4/5 Stars -This is a light-hearted, easy read—perfect for reading poolside. Rachel agrees to visit Singapore with her boyfriend Nick. She has no idea what to expect—but when she meets Nick‘s CRAZY rich family and friends, it may just be more than she bargained for. This book made me laugh a lot, and the movie made me tear up. I liked most of the book better, but I preferred the movie‘s perspective on Eleanor and its ending more. #jpbookreview
I really enjoy Gilbert's writing and she has some thought-provoking ideas on the pursuit of creativity. The book started to slog when I tried to read big chunks; I got much more out of it when I stopped that and just read a few pages a day. Bonus: super short chapters. So short they aren't really chapters, so it is an #easyread. Good to compliment other books on #writing and #creativity, just didn't think it worked as a stand-alone on the topics.
The show basically lost me awhile ago - if it hadn't been for the chemistry between Jen and Colin, I wouldn't have watched beyond S4 - but I still love the original batch of characters; Regina's one that I wished the show would have treated better than it did, but Lana has always been STELLAR. #onceuponatime #reginarising #wendytoliver #easyread
