Whenever I travel - just like when I am here in Hong Kong - I love exploring book stores and libraries to discover some new stories. During this Spring break, I was in Singapore and brought back a few books by Singaporean authors, some for children (The Little Singapore Book by Sim Ee Waun & Joyceline See Tully; Sherlock Sam by A.J. Low), and one for grown ups (Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan - a New York Times bestseller which is currently being turned into a movie). I love reading books set in places I have been to.
Two other books I want to highlight from my Spring break reading are the following: Adventures with Waffles, a children's novel by Norwegian author Maria Parr, and We're All Wonders, an inspiring and thought-provoking picture book by R.J. Palacio.
