Here are some more great reviews from our Summer Reading for Adults program:
Uganda Be Kidding Me by Chelsea Handler
I chose this book due to the front cover with Chelsea dressed in a high-end, floor length gown and an elephant alongside her. The book is a long, tongue-in-cheek dictionary of Chelsea’s safari adventures; it turns out she and five friends were the safari, the animals were a ploy in this tedious tale. Chelsea Handler says whatever she wants and will go that extra mile to raise a few eyebrows. Not as funny as I first thought. Bordering on clumsy and offensive.
Fresh Off the Boat by Eddie Huang
This lively memoir explores identity, race and hip-hop from the perspective of a Taiwanese American chef. Laugh out loud funny, this brash book talks about aspiration and assimilation in a no holds barred style with insight and verve.
Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I loved-hated this book, would read and get mad, put it down, then couldn’t resist picking it up again. The characters are amazing and I am easily caught up in this world.
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Not my usual cup of tea bookwise, but I devoured this book in an afternoon. Do read it.
