so many books, so little time ...
These footnotes make me hungry~ 😋
Another book I read several months ago (I've been so busy lately and didn't have time to post anything on Litsy until now. ?)
Anyway, about the book, this is the second Liane Moriarty's book I've read after "Big Little Lies." I actually love both of them and really love the writing style of Liane Moriarty in general. This quote, for instance, will definitely be one of the book quotes I always remember.
Ah, it's always fun to read Anne Shirley's story. In Windy Poplars, she met so many interesting characters and experienced various intriguing events. Plus, we can have a peek of some wonderful letters that she sent to Gilbert. All in all, it's been a nice reading experience for me. 😊
Meaningful words wrapped in poetries are scattered throughout this book, and this one belongs to my favorite list.
The book itself tells the story about Arthur Louis Pullman III and his journey to seek the truth lying behind the life of his late grandfather. Halfway to the end, and I'm enjoying it so far.
It's a reading rush! I have the urge to finish the book before hitting the nearest theater to watch the movie. And I should say I'm impressed with the way Kevin Kwan portrays the craziness of the rich Asian clans in this book. I am an Asian (but not rich, neither crazy) and live in the neighbor country of Singapore. Somehow, I can relate to the culture of those crazy rich families.
"For the most part, you don‘t hold the people you love in your heart because they rescued you from drowning or pulled you from a burning house. Mostly you hold them in your heart because they save you, in a million quiet and perfect ways, from being alone."
Engaging premise, intriguing plot-twist. It's surely one of the best books I've read this year. A young-adult novel with a good mystery already catches my attention. And the fact that the story is told from four different point of views only makes me love this book even more.
