My Thoughts: As I started reading this book, I realized that it is the last book of a three books sequel. Having read ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ (the first book), it was not too much of a gap when I read ‘Rich People Problems’. Quite humorous, entertaining and informative to mention a few ways to describe this book. I will definitely go and get the middle book ‘Rich China Girlfriend’. Kevin Kwan has surely made an impression on me and I will say I have found a new author to follow.
