Currently reading: Number One Chinese Restaurant by Lillian Li

Number One Chinese RestaurantI’m enjoying it so far!

Synopsis (Amazon): The Beijing Duck House in Rockville, Maryland, is not only a beloved go-to setting for hunger pangs and celebrations; it is its own world, inhabited by waiters and kitchen staff who have been fighting, loving, and aging within its walls for decades. When disaster strikes, this working family’s controlled chaos is set loose, forcing each character to confront the conflicts that fast-paced restaurant life has kept at bay.

The Immortalists

Recently finish reading: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

Synopsis: 1969. New York. The works of a mysterious fortune-teller, had caused quite a stir among a few people in Clinton Street, and caught the attention of the Gold siblings, who were enthralled by the mysticism of it, and decided to seek her out.
