Rating : 4/5 stars

I read this book for the second time last week.

Sundays at Tiffany’s is a uniquely romantic story about a young little girl named Jane Margaux who has a successful Broadway producer mother that embodies beauty, perfection and a controlling parent. She barely has time to spend with her daughter except on Sundays where she would bring her for sundae treats and a trip to Tiffany’s for jewelry shopping. Jane also has a friend, an imaginary friend, named Michael who is handsome, nice, kind and wise but nobody can see him except Jane.

As with the nature of every imaginary friend who considered their duty complete after helping young children to go through with their life until they are old enough, Michael has to leave Jane on her 9th birthday. And he promised her soon she will forget about him but little does he know that fast forward 23 years later he is wrong after all.

Book Review: The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson & Richard DiLallo

Where I Bought : MPH Warehouse Sale

Price: RM10

Rating : 3/5 stars

I started reading this book on 15th December, thinking now would be in season to read a Christmas themed book, and it took me just one day to complete reading it, Patterson’s book is such a page turner!

There are plenty of characters to be introduced in a 266 paged book which explains the least explored characteristics of each person. However the authors cleverly revealed their distinct characters in separate parallel timed stories and through their way of communication & relationship with each other and the main character.

Reading somewhere down the pages you’ll even wonder the characters described are either handsome, capable or truly beautiful, sounds fairytale isn’t it?

The book is also filled with fun festive air, some twists in between which resolved into an even merrier conclusion. Let your imagination run wild together with Gaby, her farm wedding and the family who is to be reunited with a splendid Christmas surprise that they will remember for their lives.

I would recommend this book for a light hearted Christmas festive reading.
