Currently reading: Killers of A Certain Age by Deanna Raybourn

Being a romantic-comedy enthusiast, I didn’t expect this book to capture my attention as much as it did. If you are hesitant to jump to a new genre, I highly recommend this one for it’s an easy read as it’s incredibly well-written. Killers of A Certain Age is a fun action-packed story of retired assassins, well, supposed-to-be retired, until a threat to their lives had them reawaken their deadly (and charming) skills. The thrilling action, sprinkled with wit and humor every now and then, will have you immersed in this world (honestly, I hope the author makes this a series because all the ladies DESERVE their own spotlight). 

I guess the best way to summarize the vibe of this book: it’s Kingsman starring the ladies of Mamma Mia—yes, the film with Meryl Streep, Julie Walters, and Christine Baranski, then probably add Dame Helen Mirren, to complete the four protagonists (and just because I love her).

Currently reading: Spy x Husband by Tatsuya Endo

A Spy Husband, An Assassin as a Wife/Mother, and a daughter who can read minds… Put them all under one roof and see what happens! Spy x Family sure lives up to the hype it was given. At first, I expected this story to be just about action and adventure. So I was both surprised and entertained that there are comical elements present in the series. This manga is guaranteed to put a smile on your face as you read it.

Currently reading: The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

A lot of people gasp actually whenever I say, "I haven't read this book, and watched the film," but now reading it I understand why they said that. I am also a fan of the epistolary form of writing so I'm totally digging this book. But woah! It starts off with a heavy one."

Currently reading: Diary of A Void by Emi Yagi

Emi Yagi takes ~girl bossing~ in the workplace on a whole new, bizarre level in the Diary of A Void. And well, it’s everything you’d expect (and want) in a contemporary Japanese fiction read. Woman lead. Deception. Loneliness. Dark, funny, and snarky. Reading it felt like listening to a slow and reverb version of Beyoncé’s ‘Break My Soul’. Someone, please convince me to stop reading this thing.

Currently reading: The Impossible City by Karen Cheung

In The Impossible City, Karen Cheung shares the stories of her life in Hong Kong, amidst the shifts and upheavals the city goes through since the handover to China. She tells of vanishing streets, and changing landscapes--until her home is all but unrecognizable. I picked up The Impossible City because I needed a narrative that mirrored my own feelings about our country's turbulences and transitions. Through Karen's words, I still feel sad and sometimes scared, but no longer so alone.
