#YARC2019: We’re Joining the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge!

📌 The challenge is to read as many books written by Asian authors as you can! These books can be backlist titles (i.e. released in 2018 or earlier), new releases, and even ARCs. Any genre, format, or length is acceptable! Check out the fun levels we’ve made and decide which one you’ll aim for! LEARN MORE.

Mandy and I are declaring our participating in the Year of the Asian 2019 reading challenge! We are ready to get started on all the Asian reads* and give a huge thanks to the challenge creators for bringing YARC to life.

*okay, we may have started before this post went live

SHA

I’m aiming for the Philippine tarsier (1 to 10 books). I’ll be updating this TBR list as the year progresses because tbh I don’t really make TBRs. This is just my attempt to look like I can follow rules.

➡️ Stronger than a Bronze Dragon, Mary Fan
➡️ Spin the Dawn, Elizabeth Lim
➡️ Girls of Paper and Fire, Natasha Ngan
➡️ Burn for Burn, Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian


MANDY

I’m aiming for the Philippine tarsier (1 to 10 books). I’m going to aim for around 10, and see where this goes. When going through Goodreads, these books immediately jumped out at me that I wanted to aim for, but I know there are some other books I’m forgetting about as I made this post. I’m sure I’ll be rearranging and adding more like Sha mentioned up above, but these are the major major ones I’m super pumped to get it.

➡️ Reflection, Elizabeth Lim
➡️ Spin the Dawn, Elizabeth Lim
➡️ Girls of Paper and Fire, Natasha Ngan
➡️ Descendant of the Crane, Joan He
➡️ Empress of All Seasons, Emiko Jean
➡️ Dragon Pearl, Yoon Ha Lee
➡️ Ruse, Cindy Pon
➡️ Wicked Fox, Kat Cho
➡️ A Spark of White Fire, Sangu Mandanna
➡️ The Girl King, Mimi Yu
