Goodreads Monday

I’m taking this from @alittlehazebookblog which was originated from @Lauren’s Page Turners. Basically you have to choose a random book from your TBR list and explain why you want to read it. Simple.

And the winner is…

Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by Roselle Lim


At the news of her mother’s death, Natalie Tan returns home. The two women hadn’t spoken since Natalie left in anger seven years ago, when her mother refused to support her chosen career as a chef. Natalie is shocked to discover the vibrant neighborhood of San Francisco’s Chinatown that she remembers from her childhood is fading, with businesses failing and families moving out. She’s even more surprised to learn she has inherited her grandmother’s restaurant. 

The neighborhood seer reads the restaurant’s fortune in the leaves: Natalie must cook three recipes from her grandmother’s cookbook to aid her struggling neighbors before the restaurant will succeed. Unfortunately, Natalie has no desire to help them try to turn things around—she resents the local shopkeepers for leaving her alone to take care of her agoraphobic mother when she was growing up. But with the support of a surprising new friend and a budding romance, Natalie starts to realize that maybe her neighbors really have been there for her all along.

The book sounds great and the cover is beautiful but truthfully I haven’t read it yet because the plot sounds sad in a way and emotionally I don’t think I’m ready for that. Also I am so behind and backlogged in books. I am…drowning but soon…soon I promise.
