I love this review just so, so much! #Repost @mollynight with @get_repost ・・・ I’ve read a lot of books in my 22 years but very rarely does one make me feel the way Searching For Sylvie Lee did. The way this book explored the immigrant experience, diaspora pain, and the struggles of expectations, acceptance, and heartbreaks that hit so close to home. This is one of the books that truly makes me feel seen and represented. Everything about this book makes me teary and I’d recommend this book to everyone. Please read it and love it like I did💖 . Thank you @alyssaeatherly for the copy and thank you @jeankwokauthor for writing this book. Thank you thank you thank you 💛 . . . . . @harperlibrary @williammorrowbooks @wmebooks @bookclubgirl @harpercollinsus @jennabhager @hodaandjenna @todayshow @belletrist #searchingforsylvielee #sylvieleeismissing #readwithjenna #amreading #books #bookshelf #bookclub #belletrist #bookstagram #fiction #bookish #bookish #bibliophile #readingismagical #bookstack #allthebooks #alwaysreading #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #becauseofbooks #bibliophilelife #mybookishlife #booksofig #readersofig #whatiread #readstagram

We were out late last night in Venice and I had to think of this scene from SEARCHING FOR SYLVIE LEE: "The music from the live band drifted over the cobblestones as masked couples, drunk on wine and anonymity, fondled each other in dark corners…the night seemed to be a hallucination: the masked dancers, the eerie labyrinth of streets that led away from the small square, the soft glow of lamps creating our own universe." . . . . . @harperlibrary @williammorrowbooks @wmebooks @bookclubgirl @harpercollinsus @jennabhager @hodaandjenna @todayshow @belletrist #searchingforsylvielee #sylvieleeismissing #readwithjenna #amreading #books #bookshelf #bookclub #belletrist #bookstagram #fiction #bookish #bookish #bibliophile #readingismagical #bookstack #allthebooks #alwaysreading #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #becauseofbooks #bibliophilelife #mybookishlife #booksofig #readersofig #whatiread #readstagram

I went on a short research trip to Venice with my husband when writing SEARCHING FOR SYLVIE LEE and now we’re back on a longer family vacation to share the beauty of Venice with our kids. Alta acqua (high water, flooding) hit on Sunday, like in the scene in the novel, and we went on a lovely gondola ride as well. I totally love the Venetian policemen, who ride around on water bikes and wear diving suits - maybe a future love interest in a novel? Lol. . . . . . @harperlibrary @williammorrowbooks @wmebooks @bookclubgirl @harpercollinsus @jennabhager @hodaandjenna @todayshow @belletrist #searchingforsylvielee #sylvieleeismissing #readwithjenna #amreading #books #bookshelf #bookclub #belletrist #bookstagram #fiction #bookish #bookish #bibliophile #readingismagical #bookstack #allthebooks #alwaysreading #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #becauseofbooks #bibliophilelife #mybookishlife #booksofig #readersofig #whatiread #readstagram

I just can't believe it that these media hits keep coming in, I'm waiting for the world to forget me... so happy - @cnn's picked SEARCHING FOR SYLVIE LEE as one of their ultimate beach reads! "A dazzling display of the unique bonds among women, mothers and daughters. It's a suspenseful read detailing what happens when the oldest daughter in a Chinese immigrant family disappears." 💕 . . . . . @harperlibrary @williammorrowbooks @wmebooks @bookclubgirl @harpercollinsus @jennabhager @hodaandjenna @todayshow @belletrist #searchingforsylvielee #sylvieleeismissing #readwithjenna #amreading #books #bookshelf #bookclub #belletrist #bookstagram #fiction #bookish #bookish #bibliophile #readingismagical #bookstack #allthebooks #alwaysreading #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #becauseofbooks #bibliophilelife #mybookishlife #booksofig #readersofig #whatiread #readstagram

I set this dish made with cauliflower rice in front of Kid 2, who immediately scrutinizes it for veggies, as he always does. With a gasp, he exclaims, "It's ALL a vegetable! That's like one of those horror story twists where the bad guy's call is coming from *inside* the house!"

Also the character's personal lives were very well written and the details made it more interesting! ⚜ Abuse, tragedy and broken hearts are one of the most hard acts to write but Mary Beath Keane has managed to write a masterpiece within these pages and we've devoured with love every single one of them! The drama occurred within the book is written so interesting and intriguing making really realistic in the same time! I really have enjoyed the depth and complexity of the writing, the book is one of my most favourite of this Year! ⚜ Gods of Jade and Shadow is also a 5/5 book and the way the the Author has mixed traditions is very interesting!

Do any of you know these? I don’t even know what they’re called in English but a friend made them for me - I love them so much, haven’t had one since my mother made them years ago. ❤️ TY @natascharaaphorst!

I just love this review! #Repost @theweekisbooked with @get_repost ・・・ I finished this book last night and I just loved it. It grabbed me from the very first page. There’s a central mystery, a bunch of European travel, family secrets - but most of all, I connected to what it had to say about communication in families, especially immigrant families. I grew up in a family where all of my grandparents and my mom spoke English as a second language and this book really make me think about the difficulties that come with having even a little bit of a language barrier among family members. This book reminded me of such specific details from growing up (probably too personal for this public post) and I’m really thankful - also a really compelling plot and great writing so, yes, please read it! And slide into my DMs if you want to talk about growing up in a multi-language household! • • • #searchingforsylvielee #bookreview #booksbooksbooks #bookish #booknerd #readwithjenna #booklove #bookrecommendations #readmorebooks #readmorewomen #readmore #lovetoread #igreads #igbooks #bookstagram #fiction #amreading #bookaesthetic #bookaholic #bookaddict #summerreading #summerreads #mmdbookclub #summerreadingchallenge @harperlibrary @williammorrowbooks @wmebooks @bookclubgirl @harpercollinsus @jennabhager @hodaandjenna @todayshow @belletrist #sylvieleeismissing #amreading #books #bookshelf

Completely thrilled to be in the @nytimes Book Review! Gorgeous review by the great @lizegan3: "Kwok’s story spans generations, continents and language barriers, combining old-fashioned Nancy Drew sleuthing with the warmth and heart we’ve come to expect from this gifted writer.... I lost myself in the music of Kwok’s story and heard a family trying to find their own harmony. If there’s a more familiar and beautiful sound, I don’t know what it is." . . . . . @harperlibrary @williammorrowbooks @wmebooks @bookclubgirl @harpercollinsus @jennabhager @hodaandjenna @todayshow @belletrist #searchingforsylvielee #sylvieleeismissing #readwithjenna #amreading #books #bookshelf #bookclub #belletrist #bookstagram #fiction #bookish #bookish #bibliophile #readingismagical #bookstack #allthebooks #alwaysreading #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #becauseofbooks #bibliophilelife #mybookishlife #booksofig #readersofig #whatiread #newyorktimes #newyorktimesbookreview

Today I give you acqua alta (high water) in Venice! As in SEARCHING FOR SYLVIE LEE, I was astonished to return from dinner to find the square flooded. "Later, when we tried to cross Piazza San Marco to return to our hotel, I was amazed to find it under at least ten inches of flooding, the lights that hung from every archway now reflected in the glistening water. The enormous square had become a sea, with no dry spots anywhere. Some tourists wore plastic sheeting on their feet and legs while others waded barefoot. A few reclined in the partially submerged metal and bamboo chairs that had been set out earlier for dining, their shoes dangling from the armrests." . . . . . @harperlibrary @williammorrowbooks @wmebooks @bookclubgirl @harpercollinsus @jennabhager @hodaandjenna @todayshow #searchingforsylvielee #sylvieleeismissing #readwithjenna #amreading #books #bookshelf #bookclub #belletrist #bookstagram #fiction #bookish #bookish #bibliophile #readingismagical #bookstack #allthebooks #alwaysreading #bookaddict #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #becauseofbooks #bibliophilelife #mybookishlife #booksofig #readersofig #whatiread #readstagram
