On the Night Table [18]: This Week’s Reading Pile


China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan | The New Neighbour by Leah Stewart | The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George


How was your weekend, everyone? I had a quiet one. We stayed in the city because my kids had their own thing to do, so I had a lovely lunch date with my husband, which of course, included a visit to the bookstore. Sticking to a book buying ban of sorts has always been a struggle when you’re married to an incredible guy like my husband. His natural reaction to us having a day for ourselves is to take me to a bookstore. So of course, being a weakling that I am, I always end up taking a few home. I’ll probably do a post next weekend for books that I got. Just a heads up, the book buying ban is not going so well for me – which is to be expected, isn’t it? Sigh.

The weather was finicky last weekend, so we couldn’t decide on what to do exactly (to stay home or to do stuff around the yard). So we did a bit of both. Mostly, I tried to write some posts for the coming days, and revisit my blogging tasks to see what I can tick off ( working on the third in a list of eight).

This week’s reading pile includes a remnant from two weeks ago (The New Neighbour). I was not able to finish it, so I’m working on doing that this week. I also have a couple of books that Random House sent me last week (The Little Paris Bookshop & China Rich Girlfriend). The Little Paris Bookshop is really good so far. I mentioned this on my Instagram post that if you liked The Storied Life of AJ Fikry, chances are, you’re going to love Monsieur Perdu as well. China Rich Girlfriend was the book that I sacrificed a virgin goat for way back when. I was so excited when I got this in the mail! My offering to the goddess worked! Lol.

Books Read in the Last Two Weeks:

  • Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  • Last Hit [Hitman, #1] by Jessica Clare
  • Stranded with a Billionaire [Billionaire Boys Club, #1] by Jessica Clare
  • Beauty and the Billionaire [Billionaire Boys Club, #2] by Jessica Clare
  • A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
  • The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed [Billionaire Boys Club, #3] by Jessica Clare
  • Once Upon a Billionaire [Billionaire Boys Club, #4] by Jessica Clare

As you can see, I’ve decided to check out Jessica Clare’s books. I don’t know where I’ve seen a recommendation for her books, but I thought I’d see what they’re about. I mean, it’s kind of obvious based on the title of the series. I guess, I should admit that I’m a sucker for rich men in books as well. They’re humdrum predictable, but fun. Don’t judge me. Lol. That’s it for me this week. I hope you’ll have a great one!

What’s in your pile this week?
