Happy Chinese New Year everyone! I am joining The Book Date’s Blog Hop: It’s Monday What Are You Reading? The book I am currently reading is most appropriate for today.
Red Eggs and Good Luck by Angela Lam is a memoir about growing up in a multicultural family. I am only a few chapters in and I can’t stand her Chinese father. It has nothing to do with his nationality, he is just a jerk and a thief. He has his young daughter beg a relative for money for braces then he uses it for his own interests like gambling. I get agitated reading it because I don’t like innocent children to be treated badly which is why it is taking me so long to finish. She is an excellent writer, I just am not fond of the material.
I also just finished When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. I was fortunate to win a copy on Goodreads. The author had trained for 10 years to become a neurosurgeon only to get a stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis. Instead of letting that stop him, he kept living and accomplished so much more than most do in a lifetime. This was a sad book, but it was interesting to see him change from Doctor to patient. I think this should be required reading for all medical students. I can see why this is on the best seller list.
If you want to know what else I am reading , here is my Goodreads Link. I have a Goodreads link on the sidebar, but whenever I put in my ID number it says error.
Penny was wondering if you could go visit her boyfriend Toby and wish him a Happy Birthday. His party was yesterday, but I think it is still going on. click here
