Happy Asian Heritage Month!
I had so much fun doing the #AsianReadathon last year that I’ve decided to do it again this year. It’s a great way to diversify your reading and engage with other readers on the internet.
If you’re interested in joining the readathon, check out the Twitter account for more information. The wonderful people running the readathon have also created a very helpful document if you’re stuck on what books to read for what challenge.
Here are this year’s challenges and my May TBR:
- Read any book by an Asian author.
- Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who you can relate to.
- Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who is different from you.
- Read a book recommended by an Asian.
- OPTIONAL: Read Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng and participate in #LittleFiresReadAlong and #LittleFiresWatchAlong
So here’s my May 2020 TBR:
The Boat by Nam Le, SBS, and Matt Huynh (challenge 1)
How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu (challenge 2)
Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan (challenge 3)
The Story of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang (challenge 4)
I’ve already read Little Fires Everywhere and I’m currently watching the TV show. But I highly recommend you check out Celeste Ng’s work. She’s a fantastic writer.
