Recently Read // The Wangs vs. The World.

After seriously slacking in the reading department, an advance copy of Jade Chang’s The Wangs vs. The World arrived at my doorstep, giving me the perfect little kick in the butt to step away from the computer and pick up a book. The Wangs vs. The World is a funny read, full of quirky characters as it tells the story of a Chinese immigrant family who loses the riches of their cosmetics empire after the Great Recession. The family’s story will keep you on your toes, with unexpected twists as the family takes a road trip across the country and gives a peek into each family member’s experiences. It’s both a funny and emotional read as you get a peek into the family’s dynamic (drama and all!) and a really solid debut novel by Jade Chang.

P.S. There’s a fun giveaway happening on Facebook where you can score your own copy of the book + some cosmetics goodies!
