i’m so excited to say that i will, once again, be participating in the Year of the Asian reading challenge this year!! #YARC2020 is hosted by the wonderful lily @sprinkles of dreams, shealea @shut up shealea , cw @ the quiet pond, and vicky @vicky who reads
if you don’t already know, YARC is a year long challenge to read as many books by Asian authors as you possibly can! there are really cute stickers to celebrate each level you achieve and i found it to be really chill and easygoing that is to say, you should join!!
last year, i somehow managed to successfully grab the Bengali Tiger by reading more than 50 books by asian authors.
look at this cute little guy!
if you want more information, check: CW’s post.
and for this year i’m going to challenge myself once again and aim for the Bengali Tiger because not only do i love reading my life away, but i love supporting Asian authors and spreading the love by reading and gushing about their books.
to track my reading progress, i drew this little bookshelf (she resides on my sidebar and will be updated throughout the year to show the books i’ve completed hehe)
i think she’s pretty adorable 🥺 and i can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s all complete
I have a lot of books in mind for this year but i wanted to share my results from last year (in case anyone is looking for recommendations). these are the books i read along with their ratings. I found some really incredible books, some absolute new favourites and ofc some really badly written books 😬
I know it’s a lot and i certainly wasn’t able to write long, in-depth reviews for each of the books. But I did make a YARC mini reviews thread on twitter that terribly summed up my thoughts and had too many emojis to even be coherent
quality content 😎
and now i want to hear from you. Are YOU going to be participating in #YARC2020?? what books are you most excited for?? how is your reading going?? do you have any recommendations for books written by asian authors?
