Andalucia, Spain
Goodreads average star rating: 3.78/5 stars

When I first saw this book and read its synopsis on Amazon I was interested in it because my Parents had recently moved to Spain.

Although it took me a while to read this book I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a well written, interesting and at times laugh out loud chronicle of Chris and his wifes move to Andalusia and their early years living in Andalusia. It took me a while to read this book because although it was enjoyable the first few chapters were slow going once I got in to it I couldn’t put it down.                      This book followed Chris through from him finding and buying the property which would become his & his wives new home in Andalusia to having their daughter during their first few years in spain.

Chris’s witting was great and I enjoyed this the first book in the Lemons Trilogy so much that I cannot wait to read the next book in the series “The Parrot in the Pepper Tree” to read what happens in the Stewart families life in Andalusia.  This book is a very strong non-fiction Memoir with a travel slant to it. I would highly recommend this Memoir to anyone who enjoys reading any travel based nonfiction books particularly those with a focus on the individual it’s about moving to another country.

If anyone reading this post has read this book then I would love to hear what you thought about it .

Singapore; New York, America; London, England; Hongkong
Goodreads average star rating: 3.73/5 stars

Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick's formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should--and should not--marry. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.
