If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have been wondering what I’ve been so busy reading lately…

…crazy excited to announce that I’ll be narrating Kevin Kwan’s debut novel, Crazy Rich Asians – coming out this summer!

Been tearing through the book and am having a blast getting lost in this world…

…plus, I’m learning so much about food – every other page mentions a Singaporean or Malaysian dish that has me drooling. Here’s what Lisa See (Dreams of Joy, Shanghai Girls) has to say: “As spicily adventurous and lusciously satisfying as the renowned Singaporean street food Kevin Kwan’s characters argue over; hot and sizzling, like the best satay, and dreamily transporting, like everyone’s favorite dessert–goreng pisang. Feast on this outrageously funny and insightful novel of modern manners, and enjoy!”

Still digesting all the bites from LA Weekly Plate, so this is all I’ve got the stomach for right now…

…but once I get my appetite back you better believe I’ll start exploring. You can pre-order the book now…

    This should be an interesting one – I live in Singapore and there really are such crazy rich Asians here…so would love to find out how they are being depicted. And the food…lol…you probably need to make a trip down to taste them all soon.
