year of the asian reading challenge – #YARC2019 πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

*when lily @sprinkles of dreams, shealea @shut up shealea , cw @ the quiet pond, and vicky @vicky who reads announced #YARC2019*

me: βœ¨πŸŒŸβœ¨πŸ’«πŸŽŠβ€ΌοΈπŸŽ‰πŸ’«πŸŽŠπŸŒŸπŸŽ‰πŸŽ†β€ΌοΈβœ¨πŸŒŸπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽ†β€ΌοΈβœ¨πŸŽŠπŸŒŸπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‡βœ¨πŸ’«πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

that is to say, my little asian heart is very happy.

if you don’t already know, this is a challenge in which we read as many books by asian authors as we can for the entire year of 2019. there are prompts and challenges and even a giveaway, so you should totally check out the host blogger’s posts for more info

for the challenge, i, like the overachiever that i am, am aiming to win the bengali tiger which represents 50+ books read i know, im scared too but it’ll come up to 5+ books a month, which,,,,,sounds doable

but just look at this cute little dude 😍😍

my progress tracker will be HERE on my twitter

 

some of the books that i’m planning to knock out (and am SUPER excited for) are:

and that’s just the ~start~

there are still a lot of books by asian authors that i’m SO LOOKING FORWARD to but since a lot of them are going to be released way later in the year, i figured i’ll just make another post when at least the covers are revealed :p

 

ARE you going to be participating in #YARC2019?? what books are you most excited for?? how is your reading going?? do you have any recommendations?

 

that’s all from me,

mayy

  4. I hope you have so much fun with this challenge! I’ve been going back and forth in my head about whether to participate or not. I think it’s an amazing challenge but I’ve already set goals to complete a set number of other kinds of books and I’m scared I may overstretch myself leading to stress! BUT one of my resolutions this year was to read more diverse fantasy books so!

    1. thank you sm bby ❀ im so looking foward to reading all these books (also slightly terrified but its all good its all good lol)

      YES ive been seeing all the hype for gilded wolves and i am READY for it. i've read a crown of wishes by her (not the first book, but the sequel, i know im so weird) and the plot wasn't too great but THE SHIP WAS GLORIOUS

      1. I believe in you! ❀

        And ooooh, I haven't read Crown of Wishes yet! That's a bummer about the plot but I'm a sucker for romance so I will def have to pick that up some day! And I did binge-read The Star-Touched Queen but it's kinda a blur. πŸ˜… If I remember correctly it was pretty good but it felt like it was lacking in something, idk.
