year of the asian 2020 | tbr

It’s another year for YARC! I had so much fun participating in Year of the Asian as it made me read much more books written by Asian authors.

CW – The Quiet Pond | Lily – Sprinkles of Dreams  | Vicky – Vicky Who Reads | Shealea –  Shut Up Shealea

These awesome ladies are continuing with YARC, and I’m here for it! They’ve put in so much effort in this reading challenge last year, and recommended so many awesome books, I have no hesitation to join YARC2020.

Same as last year, I’m attempting to achieve the Malayan Tapir which means I have to read 21 to 30 books.

I’ll be updating once in a while when I finish reading the books! I’m incredibly excited to read lots more books by Asian authors because representation is important and I loved most of the books that I read last year. It was such a good feeling reading about my own culture in YA books that are published internationally, and learning about other Asian cultures that I’m not familiar with.
